There are lots of benefits in using essential oil diffuser especially ultrasonic or electrical one. Oil diffusers are relatively new in the market, but owing to it’s health benefit, many people have started using it lot and it’s becoming quite popular among the people who are quiet conscious about their health.

So why it’s worth investing in one of these modern gadgets, sometimes up to $100 even? Well, it is very comfortable and practical, and it’s easy to use than the oil burner. Plus it’s much safer as well. We all know how dangerous it could be to leave candles unattended. With the electric oil diffuser this problem will never happen.

You can simply leave your gadget plugged in the wall during the entire day or night and nothing bad will happy. The aromatherapy oils will get released constantly in the air giving you constantly fresh and healing particles to inhale.

Benefits Of Ultrasonic Oil Diffusers

  • Convenient
  • Portable
  • Practical
  • Long lasting
  • Elegant
  • Stress reducing
  • Energizing
  • Overall therapeutic

So let’s talk about some of the most popular and best selling oil diffusers in UK today and see why they are that popular in the first place.

Aura Cacia Diffuser – Aromatherapy Vaporizer with Oil

The AuraCacia is a very popular electric essential oil diffuser. This particular model comes with a small bottle of oil as well. My diffuser came with a 0.15 ml bottle of lavender oil (I love lavender btw, so I was quite happy that this was the oil I got). The diffuser is extremely easy to use and it’s as sturdy as it gets. In fact my AuraCacia outlasted several others that I bought by a long time.

essetial oil diffuser

To use this unit you simply add 1-2 drops of your favorite oil (personally I like to make my own blend for aromatherapy benefits), plug in the device and simply enjoy the healing fragrance coming through.

There is something I especially love about this particular diffuser. I like to meditate every day and have the diffuser on during my meditation. The gadget emits a very slow white noise (background noise) which is perfect for falling deeper into a meditative state. Some people like to use a fan for generating this noise, but I find the fan way too strong and noisy. The difuser is just perfect for my purpose of meditation!

Wyndmere Electric Aromatherapy Diffuser

The Wyndmere diffuser is the one I bought initially and I have to say I’ve very happy with it. It doesn’t cost a fortune (I think it’s still priced at around $20 or so) and it’s extremely practical and convenient to use. I’ve tried many diffusers over the year and I find that this is one of those that actually disperse the fragrance quite nicely in the room.

When you use it for the first time you will notice that it takes about 10 minutes or so to start feeling the smell in the air, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t feel it within the next 2 minutes, as it takes its time. But once you do feel it, you’ll have the nice aroma in your nostrils for pretty much the whole time.

The gadget is quite small and compact and it’s very portable so you can simply unplug it, take it with you wherever you go and plug it in again. Perfect for home and office.

Mony Aroma/Essential Oil Diffuser

Here is another great ultrasonic essential oil diffuser in UK. The one I bought myself is blue. This is a bit different in that it mixes water and essential oil drips. You add a few cup of water and a few drops of essential oil and that will last you a bit less that two hours, which is great I think. I found that this diffuser releases the oil quite strongly in the air, so it;s also a perfect gadget for thwn you are cold.

What you do is simply use it somewhere next to you, or in the bathroom when you take a shower. You inhale the essential oils and help unblock your nose.

H2EO Ultrasonic Diffuser Multi-Colored Lights Diffuser

This is another one that I’ve extensively researched and it’s on my wishlist for birthday or upcoming Christmas! This looks awesome and it seems that the oils dispersed can be felt throughout the entire day or night. It’s quite a modern gadget, it comes with 3 different settings for oil dispersion and 5 settings for the light. Also adding drops of oil doesn’t need to happen very often. Add a few drops every second day and it works non-stop, depending on the settings you choose. I really want this one!

Also if you like quiet machines (without that white noise that I love for meditation) then this is perfect as it’s super quiet. I might use the one I have for meditation and this one when I sleep, since then I don’t really need background noise at all. (more…)

Rowing Machine – Features That You Need To Look Before Buying

Rowing machines are great fitness equipment that are becoming very popular. There are numerous benefits of using them and they provide you with a total body workout which most of us are looking for. Those who are using rowing machine regularly knows that this machine stimulate and strengthen not only muscles and bones, but also heart and lungs. This is why many doctor recommend to use rowing machine for those who have cardiovascular problems.

Various forms of rowing machines have been popular pieces of commercial and private gym equipment for a few decades now.  They work out more muscles than stationary exercise bikes.  In the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, most exercise bikes were equipped with moving handlebars to work the arms and upper chest in a rowing motion while the legs worked the pedals as usual.  This jerked the body about too uncomfortably.  Rowing machines give you a whole body workout but do it comfortably.

Choosing the best rowing machine in 2018

A good rowing machine for home use depends on a variety of factors. A particular indoor rower may the top choice for one person, but not great for someone else. Here are some guidelines to help you choose the best rowing machine of 2018.


If money is not an issue, than the top choices would be the Concept 2 Rower or the WaterRower. The Concept2 is well built equipment and is used in health clubs, rehabilitation clinics, and rowing competitions and the Water Rower is constructed to simulate outdoor rowing. For those with a limited budget, hydraulic rowers from Stamina or Kettler are suitable.

Sound Concerns

Air rowers (such as the concept 2) can produce a lot of sound because of the movement of the air flywheel. Depending on the model of rowing machine, it can be very difficult to carry a conversation because of the noise! If you have a baby in the house and you exercise while they’re sleeping, the noise from an air rower can wake them up. Magnetic resistance rowers, such as the ones made by Tunturi, are ideal in this situation because magnetic rowing machines are virtually silent.

Types of rowing machine

rowing machine in UKThere are basically four types of rowing machine available on the market today and they are:

  1. Magnetic resistance indoor rower
  2. Hydraulic rowing machine
  3. Air resistance rowing machine
  4. Water rowing machine

Water rowing machine

The Water Rower rowing machine is unsurpassed in terms of design refinement. Its patented WaterFlywheel design emulates rowing like no machine before it. The “Water Rower” rowing machine is a gorgeous looking and effective exercise equipment. The WaterRower is designed to simulate the movements of a row boat. For those who have used waterrower and compared it to outdoor rowing, the similarities are uncanny.

The WaterRower uses a patented flywheel that resembles the movements of a boat moving down a river. And just like outdoor rowing, the harder you row, the more resistance you’ll receive. There are a variety of different models of WaterRower machines, each with a different frame. Even though the various models of water rowers appear different, these indoor rowers function the same.

The  rowing machine is ideal for those who participate in outdoor rowing. Unlike traditional rowers, there is no drag and no water like outdoor rowing. However, for those who have used it for exercise, the feeling is nearly identical to outdoor rowing. The Water Rower’s unique patented Water Flywheel has been designed to emulate the dynamics of a boat moving through water. Just like rowing outdoors, the WaterRower flywheel receives its resistance by overcome the effects of drag as water moves past the tank.

This rowing machine is constructed with a wooden frame. This makes this rowing machine one of the most attractive models available, and the mechanical vibrations (common to other indoor rowers) are dampened. There is also a commercial version of the Water Rower sporting a metal frame. Another model of water based rowing machine is the First Degree Fitness Fluid Rowing Machine.

• Attractive wooden from
• Virtually silent when exercising. All you hear is the swishing of the water


• Among the most expensive rowing machines for home use available

Before you lay down any money to buy a rowing machine, tell your doctor about your plan just to be sure that you are physically able to use a rowing machine.  Don’t expect to get the hang of a rowing machine right away – they need some getting used to.  You need some instruction with your machine.  Either try out one at a fitness shop, at a friend’s or a health club if you are a member of one.  If you can’t do that, then be sure the rowing machine comes with detailed instructions.  Some even come with instructional DVDs or videos.

Whether you prefer to shop in real world stores or online, always be sure your potential store has an understandable return and refund policy.  Be sure about any shipping or delivery charges before you buy.  The average rowing machine weights about 70 lbs, so the shipping charges will be considerable because of the weight.  If you buy online, be sure the online store has an understandable Privacy Policy and a customer service email or phone number that actually works.  Do comparison shopping and have fun.

Benefits Of Rowing Machine

Rowing machines are good for all ages except very small children or heavily pregnant women because they are easier on the joints than most other pieces of home fitness equipment.  And, you can row (or scull) as fast or as slow as you like and still get a good workout.  Since they are popular, there are many varieties, brands and styles to choose from.  They are considered standard pieces of equipment in professional gyms or health clubs, but a decent one can usually be purchased for about $500.  And they are very compact, so don’t take up a lot of storage space when not in use.  Some people like to roll them under their beds.

Using a rowing machine requires some skill and technique and you need to spend some time to master it. For those who have never used rowing machine, they may feel rowing motion unnatural and also difficult to learn. It is important that you first learn how to use it properly with some expert do that you will experience benefits from the exercise and also reduce the chances of injuries.


Why Trampoline Is Such A Great Thing To Buy For Your Children

The very nature of bouncing for fun is evident by simply watching a child bounce on their bed. We tell them to stop, but they never seem to want to stop. Perhaps there is a bouncing gene somewhere in our DNA? Trampolines provide a safer alternative to what the children will do anyway. When properly supervised, children can find a tremendous release for their seemingly endless energy on trampolines. In this article we will be discussing about various aspects of trampolines, their origin and how you can choose the best trampoline in 2018.

A Brief History of Trampolines

It is commonly believed that trampolines got their name from a French trapeze artist named Du Trampoline. He envisioned using the trapeze catch net as way of propulsion and landing. Over many experimentations and revisions, he developed what most believe to be the first official trampolines. His work was expanded upon in the early 1930s by George Nissen as a diving and tumbling aid, and created a smaller sized version of Du Trampoline’s device in his garage.

It is also believed that the Eskimos used to use walrus skins in much the same manner as did fireman. They would gather round the skin and hold it taught to throw people into the air and catch them. Perhaps this is true perhaps it is legend. Either way, visitors to Anchorage Alaska will find postcards depicting this early version of a trampoline.

The next historical information available on trampolines was that is was used in Navy flight school during WW2. The Navy felt that by having its trainees use the trampolines they could better understand differences in bodily orientation as they would during flight. Astronaut training also used trampolines for much the same purpose. Besides helping with orientation, trampolines offered a tremendous way to aid in aerobic conditioning that the trainees enjoyed far more than calisthenics.

Trampolines in Tournaments
As with any sport, early practitioners of trampolines began to develop ways to demonstrate who was better than whom in competition. While it is still uncertain as to the first time people competed against each other on trampolines, the first televised trampoline competition took place in 1958. World Championships didn’t come along until 1964, and the actual International Trampoline Federation began a year later. World Championships occurred every two years, and in-between Europe held their own trampoline championship competitions.

During the early days of world competition, the Americans seemed to dominate. This was due in large part to many schools offering trampolines in gym classes. Yet because many students were working on the trampolines unsupervised and frequently without a spotter, many injuries began to occur. As is the case in the United States, injuries equate to lawsuits, and lawsuits equate to removal of the offending device. Thus, the trampoline was deemed unsafe for most schools and the American dominance in the sport waned. What a pity for subsequent students that the foolishness of some caused a great sport to go into decline.

The most modern trampolines are capable of projecting an athlete up to 10 meters high and allowing him to perform triple somersaults with ease. Medical experts say jumping on trampoline is good for your health. Exercising on the trampoline lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that those who exercise at least three times a week have a higher bone mineral content.

Trampolines Today
Trampolines can be a wonderfully enjoyable way for people of all ages to get fit and have fun doing it. They aid in developing balance, agility, and timing for the young. They help the old to exercise aerobically in a way that is far less stressful on the bones than jogging on hard pavement. And best of all, it really doesn’t take a great deal of skill for virtually anyone to enjoy using them. Trampolines are a fun, natural way to remember your youth, or for the young to play their way to better bodies.

Trampolines for the garden or yard have become one of the hottest sports in the world. And why not? It’s great for you. You can do it alone or with others. You can use a trampoline to help you brush up on other skills – snowboarding, anyone? A trampoline in your back yard or garden is like having a gym right outside your door.

Buying Outdoor Trampoline in UK

 If you’re involved with kids at all…you know from experience that trampolines are a great way to keep kids active. Not to mention kids love trampolines. I know they love trampolines…cause I’ve got four great kids myself. Trampolines are well worth investing in (my opinion), but you also want to make sure you’re getting quality products, because quality fits in with safety. As you know, safety is a big concern with trampolines…you nor I want anyone getting hurt.

Indoor trampolines may also be used as a bouncing device by gymnasts or stuntmen to be catapulted into the air. Professional indoor, or Olympic style trampolines, have a webbed surface and are generally much more expensive. They also need folding down and are not suitable for outdoors. Other indoor trampolines may also be used as fitness and weight loss tools.

It just makes sense that your trampoline is kept away from objects such as trees, swingsets, lawn furniture, etc. All it takes is one occurrence of someone falling off your trampoline and into a tree to cause a serious accident. Without a doubt, I think that safety nets are important for those who have young kids using a trampoline. Trampoline safety nets, which are often referred to as trampoline enclosures by some, provide me with more confidence that my children are safe on the trampoline.
Trampoline Safety

Make sure all springs are securely attached to the trampolines. Place the trampoline on soft, energy-absorbing ground. While installing the trampoline, ensure that you have a safety perimeter of at least 3 meters or more around your trampoline and it is away from trees, fences poles or walls. Children under 6 should not jump on backyard trampolines. Loose springs cause the way the trampoline moves and could cause a child to fall off the trampoline if they come unattached while in use.

  • Good options include sand, bark or other materials that produce a cushioning effect.
  • When children jump too high and fall off the trampoline, the presence of trees, fences, garden furniture, poles, walls etc. may increase the severity of the injuries.
  • Rather, find a kids trampoline made for toddlers and younger children.
  • Missing springs could also cause the jump mat to tear.
  • Don’t put the trampoline on concrete, asphalt or other hard surface without having a trampoline safety net or crash mats in place.

Young children are often the ones that end up in the hospital because of trampoline injuries. Make sure the safety net enclosure door is shut or purchase an overlapping entry net. The main thing we talk to parents about when trampolines come into question, however, is the topic of trampoline safety. The AAP recommends that mini and full-sized trampolines never be used at home, in routine gym classes, or on playgrounds. Aside from supervision, it’s essential that you remove any ladders leading into the trampoline when not in use.
Adult supervision is no guarantee of safety. A lot of parents have seen videos online, and incidents in person themselves, of kids getting hurt on trampolines. They should only be used in supervised training programs for gymnastics, diving, or other competitive sports. More than half of all trampoline accidents occur whilst under supervision. However a trained ‘spotter’ can greatly reduce this risk.
Never combine alcohol with trampolining! Children have been hurt while bouncing with adults who have been drinking at summer garden parties.

What Are The Different Styles To Consider?

There are really two different styles of adjustable dumbbells which have a dial system to change the weight, a spinlock system that tightens the dumbbells and  a select option.

The Dial system seems to be the more popular style as you simply just turn the dial to the selected weight, lock it in and pull the dumbbells off the stand and get your workout on! So, this makes it quick and easy to reduce or add more weight depending on what you are needing during your exercise.

What Is The Difference Between A Regular Pair Vs. Adjustable Dumbbell?

Dumbbells reviews

As opposed to various fitness machines, dumbbells can be used for a wide variety of exercises. Not everyone has the time to make it to the gym for a workout. There are various different types of dumbbells available on the market. Now the whole world is too much busy with different tasks. Dumbbell exercises create both intra- and intermuscular coordination, which leads to superior levels of muscle activation. Achieving a work-life balance is challenging enough and for most people, the last thing they want to do after a hard day’s work (or before), is to pack their gear bag and travel to their local fitness center. They generally fall into two different classifications: fixed weight and adjustable dumbbells. To keep you fit with the busy world, you should take care of health. They can provide the two main types of overload which leads to muscle growth: metabolic and mechanic. Fortunately, adjustable dumbbells are readily available; they enable you to exercise at home which makes them a convenient time-saver. Fixed weights dumbbells are the type you generally see in the commercial gym – they are simply a small hand held, balanced, solid weight.

That is why a lot of people are starting the workout. Also, dumbbell exercises considerably stimulate both the elastic and contractile elements of muscle tissue. If you are carrying out a dumbbell routine of numerous sets for numerous exercises the changing of weights between sets and exercises can be tiresome. Adjustable dumbbells have developed with the advent of working out at home. There are a lot of gym equipment which you can order to start your workout at home. Due to all these facts, dumbbells are some of the most used free weights for muscle gain and definition. You may even consider getting two sets of lock nut dumbbells just to make the workout more efficient.

They are all about the single user, saving space, saving cost and still getting a good, versatile workout. One of the most popular products of them is the dumbbells. Manual dumbbells are low in price and the adjustable dumbbells are a little bit costly. Actually finding the best product from a list of the product is time-consuming. Adjustable dumbbells are vastly superior to their traditional counterpart in every conceivable metric barring price. Most of the people know about dumbbells for making the muscles strong. But the fact is, adjustable dumbbells are easy to use and they are actually a customized form of dumbbells. That is why here I am going to give a list of top rate adjustable dumbbells with their reviews.

However, there are more affordable versions on offer that will save you money on an annual basis compared to the cost of a gym membership. Evidently, dumbbells are also convenient, as they don’t take a lot of space, and almost anyone can use one or multiple sets at home. They will bring the best result with less effort. Hope you will be able to choose one of them for your daily workout. Whether you’re serious about fitness or just want to get into reasonable shape, adjustable dumbbells are a great purchase. However, they come in a plethora of shapes, sizes and feature various constructions. Thus, without a little bit of research you may end up with a set of dumbbells that don’t really fit your requirements.

The amount of people who want to get fit and lose weight why using adjustable dumbbells is massively increasing around the country as more people become conscious about there weight and figure but most importantly there health. If you haven’t already noticed, the gym is no longer the ideal place to get in shape or implement an exercise program. In an ideal world, I’d have my own air-conditioned gymnasium with endless rows of dumbbells, a post-workout canteen serving up huge Sirloin steaks, and a personal trainer/masseuse with a pair of norks so vast they would make a seasoned prostitute blush. When it comes to choosing the best dumbbell, it is really tough when there are some many options available. In the past, I’ve used various dumbbells from various manufacturers but always found storage and space a problem. And, unless there is gym close to work, for most working folks, hitting the gym isn’t motivating.

It is a well-known fact today that our bodies burn more calories maintaining muscle than they do to maintain fat. Evidently, each type of weight plate coating comes with its own advantages. So I decided to look into buying some adjustable dumbbells, as this would seemingly solve my quandary. Especially when you work late hours and need to travel long distances to the closest gym; the motivation can dry up pretty quickly. This means that the more muscle you build, the more calories your body will naturally burn on its own each day. To begin with, urethane coated weights are usually more expensive, as this material is quite durable. Now, you need not worry, with Adjustable Dumbbells, you can reap all the benefits of strength training from the comfort and convenience of your home.

So, building muscle increases your metabolism, which in turn can help you lose fat. It’s a common misconception that urethane is plastic, but this material actually has several properties that plastic doesn’t have. A lot of people are choosing to go to the gym however gym memberships are very expensive so i looked for alternatives and was not surprised to see that it is becoming extremely popular to workout in the comfort of your own home with your own equipment at your own pace with your own music. They are best suited to myself as they are the ideal weight as i build my body up without overdoing my workout, I can easily adjust the weight and gradually increase it as i get stronger, Perfect! First of all, it’s not brittle, and will not crack or break due to impact or shock. Since it’s a true elastomer, it’s also elastic actually maintaining its elasticity and strength over a complete range of hardness. Also, as opposed to rubber or latex, urethane doesn’t emanate any smell, and feature a specific gloss, that looks better than rubber.



Baby Health Tips And Feeding With High Chair Guide

It becomes a difficult experience for parents watching their teething in babies process start. For a few babies, the teething in babies time can be uncomplicated, one day you discover that they have a few little white teeth poking through their gums. For most babies it is usually a much more painful process. Nearly all babies begin infant teething at approximately six months, with some beginning it slightly sooner and others slightly later.

The Indications Of Teething In Babies

Teething in babies appears to be a really individual process. For a few, teething in babies starts with the baby getting really cranky. Sometimes the baby is most irritable as the 1st teeth start protruding through. It is believed that as they are not uses to the sensation of teething, this increases distress.

An additional symptom of teething in babies is excessive dribbling. When the process of teething begins it seems to cause a baby to salivate even more. The drooling can then cause the baby to have a chin rash when teething in babies is happening. The rash is caused by the excess moisture that occurs when the baby drools. Drool bibs can be used to try and keep the chin dry and prevent a rash from occurring.

teething in babies can also cause the infant to have cold like symptoms. These include runny nose, low grade fever and even a cough. Make sure to check in with a physician if the fever lasts for more than two days, as the baby could be sick and need the attention of a physician. Another teething in babies symptom can be the baby pulling on its ear or gnawing on things. Both of these symptoms can indicate the baby is teething. However, again if the baby is pulling on its ear and has a fever, a physician may be needed to determine if the baby has an ear infection.

Assistance For Teething In Babies
Parents want to help their babies during this whole teething process. There are over the counter medications that can be used to help alleviate the pain, and these can be discussed with a physician. Other ideas include a teething in babies ring. These are often placed in the refrigerator to allow them to be cool. The baby places them in their mouths and the cold helps with the teething pain. Rubbing the gums with a cold wash cloth can also help and some babies like the sensation of their parents rubbing their gums with their fingers to relieve the pain.

When teething in babies begins it can seem like a never ending time for both parents and babies, especially as it will usually cause the baby to become fractious. If you are alert and aware of the symptoms of teething in babies this should help prepare you mentally and enable you to treat the baby, thus relieving some of the pain.

Babies Safety And Things You Should Buy

Some children are fearless. This is a statement which many parents will be able to relate to. With my first son I could never understand how a parent got anything done. Some days I even wondered if I would be able to keep him safe. Then came my second son, a completely different personality; he is still a boy, tousles and runs, but he does have a sense of self preservation. There are many things that the parents should keep in their mind to keep their babies safe while performing different activities like eating, playing and during sleeping. You can buy a top quality high chair that helps in feeding your babies safely. We will be discussing in details on choosing the best high chair in UK for babies later in this article.

If you have a fearless child then you will certainly be taking baby proofing your home seriously. You cannot guarantee that your home is safe, as you will find that they will scale something which would never have crossed your mind. I watched my eighteen month old climb a seven foot bookcase like a ladder to reach a toy I had put out of reach. But there are some things which you can do easily and these will take some worry out of your life.

Children copy adults, this is how they learn. If you have a fire it is very easy to give mixed messages. Consider the three points of confusion for a toddler below.

  1. Putting things in the fire – we have all put papers on the fire to get rid of them. Think about the times when you have done this; in a hurry when you are emptying out your pockets, after opening a parcel, there are countless everyday situations when you do this. Now think a step further. You probably do this when the fire is lit or before it is lit. How do you teach a child not to copy you with something they don’t want?
  2. Cleaning the fire – You know that you only clean a fire when it is cold. When you have shouted at your four year old and they have decided to try to make amends and do some housework for you how will they know if it’s ok to clean the fire ashes out?
  3. Tending a fire – Sometimes children want to tell you how well they have done. How will you feel when they run up and tell you that the fire was burning low so they added a log? Scary, but very possible.

Hopefully the above will have illustrated how important it is to have a good fire safety gate.

There are two things which you need your fireplace safety gate to do. Firstly it must successfully isolate the fire. Secondly you want to know if anyone has tried to fiddle with it. The first is easy, any good fireplace safety gate should accomplish this. The latter though, that requires a little more imagination – try tying a bell to it. Even if you can’t hear the bell through out the house, your kids will probably think that you can and will stay well away. With preparation and thought you will have many happy hours of enjoying an open fire with your family.

Baby high chairs – what features you need to look in 2017

Baby high chair 2017The right high chair can help make feeding a hungry baby more enjoyable for both of you. Highchairs come in a wide variety of styles and prices. Just because you have a baby doesn’t mean you have to have an obstacle course in your kitchen or dining room. A full-sized high chair features a wide, sturdy base and a nice-sized feeding tray for your baby. But with so many features, styles, and materials available—not to mention budget considerations—selecting the correct high chair can seem overwhelming.

  • Choose one that’s sturdy and easy to clean; it needs to be durable enough to withstand several years of daily use.
  • A bulky high chair that requires lots of room can kill the cook’s mood.
  • Many models can be moved to different heights to allow you to comfortably feed your baby sitting or standing, or put her right up to the table as she gets older.
  • To make sure your high chair purchase meets your needs, test models at a store.
  • Your child may use a highchair until age 2 or 3. Instead of a freestanding highchair, some families choose a seat that attaches to the table or that straps on to a regular kitchen or dining-room chair.
  • Say bye-bye to room ruiners and space-eaters with these chairs that easily fold up for quick concealing in the pantry or spare closet (all are ideal for city dwellers with teeny kitchenettes). Baby may be using a high chair from six months all the way to age three, when he can graduate to a booster.

Some models allow you to change the height of the high chair to make feeding comfortable for you and your baby, from a standing to a seated level-or even sit right up to the table, by removing the tray. Mid-priced high chairs are a good value and can offer the best combination of useful features. The most common form of injury involving high chairs is when the child falls after trying to stand up in, climb in to or get out of the chair. These days, many high chairs grow with baby, converting from an infant seat to a toddler booster and then to a chair.

Traditional high chairs contain none of the bells or whistles of modern high chairs. The only exception is if you want a spare high chair for your baby to use at a caregiver’s house. Other serious injuries can result from having their fingers, toes or limbs pinched or crushed by moving parts or gaps, or choking on easily detachable small parts.
