Best Travel Highchair – Portable High Chair For Travel 2023

Sharing is caring!

I often get asked about what family travel gear I recommend or take with me. I definitely packed a lot more when mine were both younger – especially since as a couple or singleton I didn’t really pay much attention to what facilities there were for kids.

Turns out a lot of places have highchairs – but the standards vary not only across the world but also between restaurants. Some highchairs didn’t have straps, some were dirty, others were absolutely perfect and other places had none.

So due to this disparity, I found it much easier to take my own. These days, baby travel highchairs are so portable, light and easy to clean.

Different types of travel highchair

A travel highchair (sometimes known as a booster seat), is a portable seat for feeding your baby or toddler when out and about. They are handy to have as then you can keep your arms free to eat your own meal.

Highchairs for babies are usually recommended for babies 6 months and older which can sit up unaided. Generally, a 5 point harness travel high chair is the most secure for a wriggly tot.

There are four main types of portable highchairs to choose from.

  • Travel highchair – quite like a normal highchair, but without the long legs. It sits on a dining chair and is strapped on. It will usually fold to a conveniently small size.
  • Booster seat -This type gives your child a ‘boost’ in height.  It also straps onto chair. Some have 5 point harnesses.
  • Fabric seat harness – a piece of fabric you put around your baby with clip restraints.. They are easy to fold, incredibly lightweight, but don’t give your baby any height to reach the table.
  • Clamp-on seat – a seat that attaches to the edge of the table rather than a chair, so your baby is at table height.
