Baby high chairs are comfortable and safe places for baby to sit during meal time. The only place you're going to find a straight backed wooden chair with plain tray is in an antique shop. While they might make a nice accent for a room, only a teddy bear's going to be happy sitting in them. New baby high chairs now incorporate a reclining back with a built in head support. This is great for babies who want to be part of the meal time action, but often start a nap before dessert comes. A feature in many baby high chairs with reclining backs is the ability to adjust the angle changing the support needed as the baby grows up. This feature will mean you can use the high chair longer.
