If feeding your baby on the go wasn’t already stressful enough, seating them properly when you’re away from home certainly can be. For one thing, restaurant high chairs aren’t guaranteed–and even if they are provided, who knows if they’ve ever been cleaned. If you’re traveling or visiting family and friends, it’s unlikely they’ve got one stashed away either. Your best bet? Invest in baby’s own mobile throne–aka a portable high chair.
Travel high chairs are lightweight and compact and easy to set up and take down in just a minute or two. Many styles are designed with transport in mind and some can even fit in a suitcase for air travel. That said, they certainly don’t skimp on durability and some make a worthy replacement for standard high chairs–an option that’s great for families who are short on space.
When it comes to portable high chairs, there are two main styles to choose from: Clip on versions that attach directly to a table or counter and booster seat styles that connect to a chair. Across both categories they can be used with or without a tray. Some booster styles can even be used solo.
Whether you’re looking for something to use on your travels or searching for the perfect portable high chair to keep at grandma’s, we’re rounded up some of the top-rated options to make it easy.
