We love the thick sturdy crotch post on this chair which gives extra security for baby especially when coupled with the 5 point safety harness. The cover is nice and padded for baby’s comfort, and with a recline feature means baby can have small naps in the chair. The cover isn’t machine washable but it can be removed for an occasional deep clean of the chair.

5. Babyway Cyane Apple A Day

The chair is spacious for larger children, although you may need a cushion for supporting a young babies back. We love that the tray can be folded over to the back and the chair pushed up to a dining table so older children can start eating alongside the family.
