    We have this one which I think the PP's were mentioning. It has worked out great for us since we too need the space saving. Its easy to clean and DS seems very comfortable. Easy to get him in and out as well. I love the Stokke one too.

    Any great high chair suggestions? Any to stay away from? TIA
    We really like the ikea high chair we got. It's pretty basic, functional, and quite safe. The tray isn't adjustable though it can be removed for cleaning, but it has a blow-up cushion you can get to put around your child until they are big enough and that pushes them up closer to the tray. Best of all it is very cheap - $19 + $5 for the blow-up pad.

    I have this one, it's a little different. More portable. See how it sits too low on the chair to reach under the table without its tray? And my table has a board running under the top of it (where our knees would hit), so if I put something under it to boost the highchair, his feet will not go under the table, they hit the board. So maybe it's my table that is at fault!

    Whichever high chair you choose (if you go that route), I highly recommend getting the vinyl cushion/seat cover that you can just wipe off. With cloth ones - you'd be washing it in the washing machine 2-3 time a day when baby starts self feeding!!

    I got one of these for my toddler to use - she hates it, but I sit in it all the time!

    We have the graco contempo and love it. It has 6 height positions and folds away (keep both in space next to fridge).

    Actually we had to change 3 high chairs till we find the right one because most high chairs on the market are stupidly designed reclining too much and making it really hard for the baby to self-feed because everything drops on to his/her lap before it can reach his/her mouth. The one we are quite happy with is the Eddie Bauer high chair because it doesn't recline and my son can feed himself easily in an upright position. Here is the link to it:

    The same model has a booster seat too:

    I love the table mat posted earlier.
    Also, what about the kind that actually attach to the table? Can anybody recommend good brands? TIA

    The table mat with the built in bucket was fantastic at catching most of what would have otherwise fallen on the floor. DS doesn't need the bucket anymore - so we cut it off and are still using the rest of the placemat.

    We had a Graco table chair that we got as a hand me down from friends. It was ok but I can't say that I totally loved it. No major issues, easy to put on & off the table and easy to clean. Possibly not the one I would have bought - but I can't say no to hand me down baby stuff! Oh - and we never used the tray that came with this chair.

    I remember that Rochelle had a Phil & Teds table chair that she absolutely loved.
