So, what about high chair alternatives? Earlier, we discussed some of the other types of infant seats that are alternatives to the traditional ones. The chair harness is an example to the traditional baby seat. So is the clamp on infant seat that you attach to your table. But you don’t have a whole lot of choices when it comes to alternatives to the regular baby seat. The bottom line is that you have to have a chair that gives your child room to eat, is easy to clean (because food is definitely going to get on it) and allows you to easily feed your baby, preferably while sitting in a chair.

Other Products

Below are full reviews of our top five picks when it comes to infant seats, but let’s quickly take a look at some of the basic alternatives that are out there when it comes to specific products. Here are four actual products that are alternative to baby seats.

Baby Base Ultramarine

The first one that we’re going to look at is the Baby Base Ultramarine travel seat; This is a terrific two-in-one travel baby chair that allows you to keep in the trunk of your car and then use it whenever you cannot get an infant seat for your child in a restaurant. Of course, you can use it at home too, but the beauty of this is that it converts between a travel baby chair and a booster seat, so your children can be anywhere from six months to about five years.

Also, there are five different colors to choose from, which allows you to go with your own unique style preference and this chair has a fantastic price that any parent will be able to afford.

My Little Seat Travel High Chair

Travel Highchair Alternative
Next up is the “My Little Seat” travel baby chair; This is another portable chair that you can take with you when you go out, but you can also use it at home in place of your regular infant seat.

The only disadvantage with this high chair is the same one that you get with all of the chair harnesses that are out there – you do not have any height for your baby to use the table as their tray, so you end up with food all over the chair, all over the baby and probably all over yourself as well.

However, this harness is about as inexpensive as you can get, it is safe, and you can take it anywhere in your diaper bag. For parents on a tight budget or with absolutely no space, this may be a good solution.

Summer Infant Pop Portable Booster

Pop-n-Sit Portable Booster
This next high chair is excellent. It not only serves as both a baby chair and a booster seat – complete with a decent-sized tray for your baby – but it also is small, portable and could be stored in the corner, closet or in the trunk of a car. Plus, this infant seat is surprisingly even less expensive than the previously described harness. In fact, this is almost the least expensive of all of the products on this list, including both the top five picks for baby chairs and their alternatives.

It indeed is the one that offers the best value for the money. Also, it comes in two different colors, both of which are great, and it has all of the safety features that you would want. If you are looking for an infant chair alternative, you really can’t go wrong with this one.

Jolly Jumper High Chair

Jolly Jumper High Chair review
As for the absolute budget item on the list, the Jolly Jumper high chair is about the price of a meal at a fast food restaurant. But this isn’t a baby chair nor is it a booster seat. In fact, although you could probably use it as either one of those in a pinch, this could be called an infant chair or booster seat more accurately than anything else.

The Jolly Jumper does have two things going for it besides the price – it is absolutely tiny, first of all. You can fit this into your purse or diaper bag easily and pull it out whenever you need it.

The second thing is that it includes some pretty significant adjustability, which means that you will be able to make it bigger as your child grows. These are both great features, but this should probably be considered as an accessory or last resort.
