The problem with most high chairs is that your baby will outgrow it. What we love about the Stokke Tripp Trapp is that it is a high quality high chair, that then converts to a very functional child's chair that can be used for many, many, years.
For babies, we recommend getting the optional Stokke Baby Set, which is sold separately from the high chair for $70. The Baby Set seat adds another level of support for babies and toddlers with its backrest and baby rail.

sarahbaxI had been scoping out this chair for a few months prior to starting my son on solids. I thought it was one of the best-looking and practical (grows with child) high chairs on the market… that was affordable.
However, the cost of the chair alone is slightly misleading as the infant seat and tray are practically essential for a six month old who is learning to sit and eat. I also bought the fabric seat cushion for added comfort. The total cost of the chair plus all three extras added up quickly to well over $400.
While the chair does look good, I find it very difficult to use. The crotch strap is awkward to get at when the baby seat is in use. The stationary position of the seat is sometimes awkward for my wriggling son to get into, especially when he doesn't want to get in. And, most disturbing of all, while seated, my son can pull up on the tray with all of his super-human toddler strength and lift the infant seat and tray right up and out of the chair together in one piece. He has actually fallen out of the chair once! I was luckily close by so there were no injuries… I contacted the store I bought the chair from and sent the store images of my assembled chair - thinking I may have assembled the chair and infant seat incorrectly - I was told everything was fine with the assembly.
I'd never recommend this chair to any of my friends.
