Best Travel Highchair – Portable High Chair For Travel 2024

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. 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 on-the-go. 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. Features 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.
