I stopped using a high hair when my son was a master walker. I had those high chairs that transitioned to a chair and table.

My son is 3 and we just use a booster in a regular chair so he can reach the table. It has buckles but we dont use them.

My 2yr old sits on a booster seat (without straps) at the regular table. I was tired of the bulky high chair always in the way. We just don’t leave her unattended - which we didn’t before but I’d clean the kitchen and positioned her to where I can see her. Now I sit at the table while she eats.

Around 2 at home. By 3 years old they are big enough for a booster at restaurants

By age two. At home and in restaurants. We only used booster seats

My daughter was 1.5 simply because it was way more of a battle to get her to behave and eat when she was in her high chair. Booster was the same, so she’s been using a “grown up” chair since she was almost 2

With my 2 year old we have him in the highchair when we went out to eat but at home we let him sit in his big boy chair which is just alil paw patrol chair he loves at our coffee table in the living room cause it’s easier for us cause we let him play with a few toys to get him to eat more

When his but cant fit any more :blush:

In house we stopped when he could sit in the kids sized chair that fits perfectly under our coffee table, without getting up and arguing. Highchair was helpful for the baby food and regular food learning but now he’s got all his teeth and we know how he likes his food so we’re good. We still use them in public bc in public he gets distracted easily and it’s nice to tie him down in those moments lol

I stopped at age 1/12

Little after 2 is when we stopped with my stepson. And just went straight to the normal dinner table. At restaurants he’ll get a booster if needed.

My son stopped sitting in one at home right before he turned one because he refused to eat if he was in one so I bought him a toddler table and chair. At restaurants I usually let him roam the booth/stand and eat unless he starts getting rowdy or our food comes (I always order his food first) then he gets put in a high chair and he recently turned 2

My son is 18 months and we have a little table with chairs

At 2.5 we moved to a booster at the table. It didn’t last long. He will be three I’m two months and is just sitting at the table like his older siblings

Those are the kinds of decisions that you have to make based on your personal good judgment.
My son was out of a high chair quick! But that’s because he wasn’t a wild child and he loved the booster
