The number one thing in a high chair is the ability to clean it, since it’s primary function is used for eating. I wish I would have known this before and would not have wasted my money on my first chair. Unfortunately Boon High chair is my second high chair as I had to find out first hand that reclining and soft padding are so not important in a baby high chair. I am also against the high chairs that are placed on regular chairs and often use the regular table for feeding. This scenario also creates a nightmare for cleaning. You will be cleaning the high chair 2-3 a day as soon as you baby starts to eat solids, so spending 2 minutes for a clean-up vs 15 will make a huge difference. Another thing to keep in mind is that the buckles must come out for a clean-up as without a doubt they will be puked and spilled on many times. Most other chair have partial buckles that come off but other parts are permanently attached.
The beauty of Boon high chair is that all parts come off and the insert can be cleaned in the sink. You can also buy them separately, just in case you get bored of a certain color. The chair looks really cool in the kitchen and is not an eye sore. The base is a bit wide but overall the chair does not take too much space. The one thing it does not do is recline so you can only use it from the time your baby can sit but that is not a big deal since most babies start eating solids when they can sit. The height can be adjusted so that small children can get in on their own.
