BabyBjorn High Chair Review

We were very lucky to do a BabyBjorn High Chair review (affiliate link) and share our thoughts on what we think of it.

Our second baby started on solid food when he was 6 months old and so far, it’s going brilliantly! We decided second time around to do Baby Led Weaning again, as we had with our first baby.

So for the last few months, Mini has been joining us at mealtimes and it’s so lovely to sit down and eat dinner together as a family.

BabyBjorn High Chair Review

We opted for the BabyBjorn high chair in White but it is also available in Pink and Light Green as well.

When we took the high chair out of the box to assemble, the first thing I noticed was how compact and sleek it was.  In fact, I did wonder if it might be too small for Mini who isn’t even the biggest of babies.

The Baby Bjorn high chair took about 10 minutes to assemble, with very clear and simple instructions – this is essential in our house!

Despite the seat looking small, we popped Mini in (who is almost 10 months old here) and he actually has lots of room.

Where I had thought it looked small, in fact, it’s just streamlined and sleek really.  There isn’t the unnecessary bulkiness that some high chairs have – no fuss at all.

How to set up

The tray is adjustable – you drop it down to pop the baby in, pull the tray up to them and turn a handle so it’s fixed into place.

The tray also detaches so as Mini gets bigger and no longer needs the tray, he can instead sit in the high chair but have his food on our main table.  In fact, BabyBjorn recommend that the chair can be used for up to 3 year olds!  Our nearly 3 year old sits with us at the table but for families short on space or chairs, this is a great option for babies as they grow into toddlers.

Our thoughts

I love the simplicity of the design – it’s neat, easy to use and easy to clean.  There are no fussy parts where food can get caught.

The tray itself is what keeps the baby in place so there is no need for straps. For me this is a plus as they just get grubby anyway. I’m very confident that Mini is safe an secure once the tray table is fixed into place.

The only slight downside is that the tray itself is not very wide which means a lot of food does end up on the floor but given we are Baby Led Weaning, a lot of food ends up on the floor anyway!

I also prefer a smaller tray because it means the high chair doesn’t take up too much room.

I feel very confident with Mini in this high chair.  Once he’s sat in it and the tray table is up, he can’t get out so I know he’s ok.  My daughter had a high chair where she was able to stand up in it. It always worried me that she might fall out, even when the straps were fastened!

It’s impossible for a baby to stand up in this one because of the tray I think.  The table lock can only be opened by us.

Extra features

We keep the high chair up all of the time as it is in use so much. If we needed to save space, it also folds down.

Mini loves sitting with us at the table at mealtimes and is so happy in this high chair. It has a big thumbs up from us!
