Let’s just be honest, for being such tiny little humans, babies sure can require a lot of things! But if we’re being honest again, we don’t necessarily always want everything out and about, and that goes for high chairs too.

So, whether you live in a smaller space, travel frequently, or just want to tuck things away for your first fancy dinner party post-bebe, we’re rounding up our top picks for compact high chairs.

So pull up a chair as we dive in!

Stokke Clikk

  • Weight: 8.3 lbs.
  • Weight limit: 33 lbs.
Let’s kick things off with our lightest and most compact option, the Clikk High Chair from Stokke.

There’s a reason this chair was awarded the “Red Dot Award” for design and innovation! The simple assembly of this high chair means it’s easy to tear down and tuck away. You’re just a few clicks away from putting it together for a meal or taking it apart to carry on your next adventure with baby for family dinner at Grandma’s house.

The travel bag option is the cherry on top as you can easily take it with you or store it away once your little one outgrows it. It’s small but mighty as it weighs only eight pounds but can comfortably seat your little one up to 33 pounds. Plus with it’s cute, sleek design (including a footrest for your little + a 5-point harness), we know you’ll love the Clikk as much as we do! Oh, and did we mention it’s available in literally every colour under the rainbow?

Maxi-Cosi Minla

  • Weight: 25.3 lbs.
  • Weight limit: 50 lbs.
Last, but not least, the Minla High Chair from Maxi-Cosi.

While this chair is the heaviest option in our round-up, weighing in at 25 pounds, it can also hold the most weight, up to 50 pounds. It’s also what we would refer to as “fully loaded” with its various recline positions, tray positions, and available heights, having it fold down to be compact is an even bigger bonus!

The Minla is functional, flexible and fashionable, making it a great compact high chair pick.

Your baby’s first culinary adventures should be a comfy experience, thankfully the Upseat Booster Floor Seat (with tray) is here to save the day. This seat was designed with a slight forward tilt, which engages your baby’s core muscles and encourages correct posture early on in life.

The Upseat includes a large, detachable tray so you can serve up delicious food, right at baby’s level and includes straps so you can use the baby seat as a booster seat at the table later in life.
