Best Highchairs

We set out to find the best highchairs on the market, and after weeks of extensive testing, the Cosatto 3Sixti2 came out on top. Not only does it look fabulous, it outstripped the competition in terms of ease of use, cleanliness and how comfortable it was for baby.

Best Highchair

Cosatto 3Sixti2

After nearly 500 hours of vigorous testing, the Cosatto 3Sixti2 was crowned our Mumsnet Best Highchair - it’s got style, personality and functional features to boot. The height is adjustable, the seat is reclinable and spins 360 degrees, it can be used with or without a tray and can be maneuvered around the room with relative ease, despite its heavyweight status. It’s suitable from six months to 15kg (approximately age three). While the Cosatto 3Sixti2 is not a cheap option, you do get what you pay for, including Cosatto’s trademark four year guarantee.

Best Luxury Highchair 2018

Evomove Nomi

Well-made with a sleek design, the Nomi is an extremely high quality highchair which will last for years to come. We loved its sleek design - not surprising given Evomove’s Danish roots - and the fact that it's extremely stable, so you can pop even the wriggliest of tots in without worrying about it tipping over.

Best Budget Highchair 2018

IKEA Antilop

The IKEA Antilop is without a shadow of a doubt the best highchair you can buy on a minimal budget - you really can’t argue with £9 (or £14 including the tray). Famous for being good value, the Antilop is incredibly easy to assemble - in testing, we managed it without using the instructions in under a minute. And, despite its rickety appearance, the Antilop is surprisingly sturdy.

Best 2+ Highchair 2018

Stokke Tripp Trapp

This instantly recognisable highchair is a favourite on Mumsnet, and we can see why; it's beautiful, flexible and lasts into adolescence. Doubling as both baby seat and high chair (and so much more), we think it's really excellent value for money. We tested the Tripp Trapp in all three iterations; the infant seat, which is our Best Infant Seat 2017, the baby seat, and the base seat which can be used from two years.
