Modern Baby High Chairs that are Easy to Clean and Safe
Modern baby high chairs have come a long way from the classic wooden models of not so long ago. Contemporary models have been streamlined in designs that seem to be taken out of a documentary detailing what we might expect life to be like a hundred years from now. Easy to clean slick plastic and chrome have replaced stained and painted wood baby chairs.
Nobody has complained that wooden high chairs are not attractive. I have to admit that I will miss the chairs that displayed such beautiful craftsmanship. The woodworkers took such pains to carve pretty patterns into the wood that turned a basic piece of furniture into a work of art.
Are Modern Baby High Chairs Safer
It’s sad to say, but it’s the details that may have caused wooden high chairs to be replaced by more modern baby high chairs. The problem is that while they are lovely to look at, the carved nooks and crannies older high chairs have a way of attracting gobs of splattered baby food that is a pain to remove. To keep the chairs clean takes more time than most busy mothers can spare in any given day while struggling to run a household, hold a job and raise their family.
The two brands that can lay claim to the most efficient and futuristic designs would be the Svan and the Stokke high chair.
Color and Style
This is one area where modern baby high chairs get a chance to shine. The colors range from lime green to pumpkin orange and all points in between that really brighten the kitchen or wherever your baby takes his or her meals. For moms who want a modern baby high chair but not the funky colors, there is the option of stained or a natural unfinished look.
The only way mom could make her stained wooden chairs colorful was with some bold colored cushions. The problem here is that cushions has developed the same reputation of being difficult to clean as the old fashioned high chairs themselves. One thing that can be said about contemporary baby chairs is that babies may not as comfortable sitting on a plain wooden seat as they were lounging on a soft, upholstered cushion. However, mom can perform cleanup in less than half the time.
The one drawback of these baby chairs is that they are rather expensive. The most popular Stokke high chair
model comes in at approximately $249.00 and the
Svan high chair for ten dollars more give or take a few bucks.
