Booster seats and high chairs are often used interchangeably and together to help kids join the dining table during meals. This encourages family time, helps them develop a habit of sitting in one upright position during the entire duration of the meal, and tidying up becomes much easier. While a booster seat is something that’s attached to an existing chair, a high chair is a standalone piece of furniture, which is meant mostly for dining purposes. While booster seats are portable, available in compact designs, can be used in multiple instances, and are easy to clean, high chairs tend to be sturdy and spacious. High chairs come with height-adjustable and reclining features too, and your regular dining chairs can be kept at bay from regular wear and tear.
