Bababing Noah Highchair, Natural/White
We spent a considerable amount of time researching highchairs (after all, they need to last a long time) and we are so pleased we chose this one.
We were attracted to its neutral, sleek design which blends in really well with our decor. We also wanted a highchair which would last beyond the 'baby phase' into childhood.
Having used this highchair for the last 6 months, we have no complaints. It is very practical - the tray very easily lifts on and off which makes it easy to clean and means you can tuck the highchair under the table when not in use. The seat cover is also easily removed for cleaning #although we have been able to remove most marks by wiping it#. It also takes up very little space - some of the chairs we looked at took up an awful lot of floor space which we couldn't afford to lose in our kitchen.
Overall, a really excellent product.

Sturdy, good looking highchair
We have just started using this for our 6 month old baby. The assembly instructions were easy to follow & it took less than 20 minutes to put together. The chair is extremely sturdy & looks good.
After comparing to similar alternatives, we chose the BabaBing Noah as it comes with everything you need rather than some others where you have to buy the accessories.
Very happy & will be recommending to my other Mummy friends!

Seat is not wipeable and food gets trapped in places
I'm really disappointed with this high chair. I was suspicious of a cream seat cushion but was assured that it was wipeable. This is not the case, the material is no more wipeable than any other material and is in fact so textured that food gets ground in.
I contacted Bababing to complain and they told me just to put it in the washing machine - I can't do this after every meal or even every day or it would not be dry. Even so, I tried and the seat still has exactly the same stains having been through the wash. I don't understand why, at the very least, they don't provide alternative colour seat cushions.
There is also an issue with various nooks and crannies whereby the food gets stuck (by the crotch strap) and you can't get it out without dismantling. I also find that because the tray lip is not sealed to the wood tray, food gets squished into this area making it difficult to get clean.
I'm not sure who the manufacturers get to test their products! I wish I'd spent the extra money and gone for the other make of high chair that grows with baby.
Such a shame as it does look lovely at the table in place of one of the dining chairs.

Looks good, completely functional, keeps my little houdini safe. Cleans well, slight niggle that there are a few little nooks &crannies for old food, but overall very very pleased.

Good Quality Highchair For The Price!
I was looking for a highchair that is particularly well made and that has longevity so it can be used beyond toddler years.
I carried out quite a bit of research on high chairs that ticked my boxes and that were reasonably priced.
After all that, I found that this highchair has done the job marvellously! Firstly, it comes with absolutely everything you need without having to pay for added extras which can be a pain.
The highchair itself is well made, sturdy and most importantly safe, as my little girl loves playing with her toys on the feeding tray which comes with the chair.
In terms of placing my little girl in and out of the chair, this I found very straight forward by squeezing the wooden bellybar so it can be removed from the chair. Once this has been completed, I simply placed my girl in the chair and squeezed it back into its slots and attached the safety harness to her. Very easy to carry out! The wife can even do it one handed!
One aspect I love about the chair is the fact that the height can be changed really easily for when my girl grows by simply moving the seat and foot board into the other slots that are located on the chair, so she can use it for years to come.
Overall, the features and accessories that are included with the chair in relation to the price is excellent, and I cannot recommend this highchair enough!

Not good for tall babies!
Afraid I wouldn't recommend this high chair. The first one we were sent did not assemble correctly as one of the holes was in the wrong place. Of course, John Lewis were as marvelous as ever and sent out a replacement one (which did fit together) straight away.
However, the chair doesn't work for our baby at all. I think it may be because she has long legs/body for her age. It is a nightmare to get her into or out of it comfortably as the space her legs need to go through is too small. The back is not high enough for her to sit comfortably either (and if we try and correct this by moving the seat down her arms get squashed by the tray!)
The harness is a pain to secure as it keeps falling off the back of the high chair and the seat pad is a very light colour so shows up food stains. The safety strap which goes between the legs only fits on the highest setting so cannot be used once you lower the seat.
Having said all that - I have a friend who says this high chair works perfectly for her baby so I think it may mainly be the height issue which stops it working for us. So if you, like us, have a tall baby probably safest to try one of John Lewis's other high chairs.

Bought this quite a few months ago now, so it's been fairly well road tested as my daughter is the messiest eater on the planet! I used to have a tripp trapp (older child), which I did like, but I must say I prefer this one as it is:
b) far easier to put together
c) it comes with everything you need
d) it comes with a feeding tray. I like the idea of my baby joining us properly at the table, which we will do when she is older, but right now, she whacks the forks and spoons on the tray instead of denting my lovely oak dining table!
I also prefer the belly bar - it is easy to put her in and out (one handed no less!) and she still seems very secure (not sure what problem the other reviewer had with the bar??) I have not felt the need to use the harness yet even though she is now 18 months old. She is a wriggly child but has been safe and secure thus far. The tray is also very easy to put on/take off.
It is easy to clean - we just wipe it with a baby wipe and then spray it with disinfectant and the tray has been fine. We have washed the seat fabric several times (as I said... messy eater) and it has come up like new. I also like the fact that it has a reasonably small footprint, and without the tray, can slide under the table.
All in all, I would highly recommend this product - in fact I liked it so much I bought one for my mum who looks after her twice a week and recommended it to two other friends who have bought one - all happy customers.
On a final note... also bought their Rockout... brilliant too!

This is the most beautiful highchair that I have ever had. I was bought this as a gift by my wonderful Mother-in-law after the birth of my third child. It is really safe and sturdy and super easy to clean. Would thoroughly recommend. Can't rave about it enough!! Love it!
