Whichever approach works best for you, we’ve got it covered in our round-up of the 10 best space-smart highchairs…

Finally, before you decide a thing, make sure you read our highchair buyer’s guide and round-up of key highchair types on the market.


Baby Bjorn Appetite highchair, £128.99

The Appetite is modern in looks and modern in the way it functions – it has no fiddly harness but still keeps your baby securely in place. In use, the chic Appetite is small (lasting up to 2 years of age, not 3), with a compact footprint. It’s also very easy to fold down to a small size for stowing between meals or travel.

Ikea Antilop, £14

The cheapest seat in the collection is by no means the least.  The complete Ikea Antilop highchair with tray only costs £14, however, if you wanted to save even more on space and cost, you can get the chair alone for £9. As you would expect from an Ikea product, the chair is easy to assemble and take apart, which is essential because it doesn’t fold, but once taken apart can fit almost anywhere.
