For the first few months of your baby’s life, she will need nothing but breast milk or formula to meet all of her dietary needs. But around the time she is starts eating solid foods (usually at 4-6 months) you will need to make sure she has her own safe, secure place at the table.
And here's how to make sure your chair is green...
Most conventional high chairs are made from vinyl, PVC, and other harmful petroleum-based ingredients that will offgas into your home. The typical high chair also tends to be awkward to store and transport, which is why it usually ends up in a landfill rather than stored once a baby has outgrown it. If possible, seek out a “pre-loved” high chair instead of a newer model and make sure it gets passed on to friends, family members, or to your local thrift store when your baby no longer needs it.
