Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. We’ve already written about the best high chairs, but this time we’re zeroing in on the best booster chairs, as reviewed on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best adjustable booster chairs

Fisher-Price Healthy Care Booster Seat

“This booster seat has been a lifesaver! When we get together with family there are usually multiple young children and only one high chair. This booster seat has been very handy to provide an extra seat at the table for our 1-year-old. It folds up easily and is compact, so we can leave it in the trunk of my SUV so it’s always there when we need it. It also securely straps onto regular dining-room chairs with ease. I recommend this seat for anyone who needs a high chair on the go.”

Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat

“The best piece of baby gear out there! Seriously, I have owned this little high chair for six years. It is my highest recommended must-have. My third daughter is almost 2 years old and still using it. What makes it beautiful is simplicity and quality. Very easy to clean and transport. I can’t stand complicated seats or the cheaper ones that have flimsy plastic. This is the perfect high chair. This is all solid, smooth plastic, so it’s a breeze to clean.”

Fisher-Price SpaceSaver High Chair

“We love this chair so much that we bought two. It is very light and portable and I love that it doesn’t take up a lot of room like traditional high chairs. My 15-month-old has special needs and can’t sit unassisted, and this chair is perfect for keeping her upright. She sits in it to play with toys on the tray and we also strap it into our wagon to take her for rides (without the tray). It’s easy to take along when we go to dinner at friends’ houses also. Cover is easy to get off to wash.”

Summer Infant Deluxe Comfort Folding Booster Seat

“Oh my goodness! This little chair is awesome! Super lightweight, sturdy, and easy to use. I bought one to keep here for visits from my granddaughter. She loves it and plays and laughs when she’s in it (she’s 10 months). I can see why this is so popular. It folds for easy storage and travels really well. My daughter has one and she keeps it in her car for restaurants. The baby loves this seat much better than the restaurant high chairs. Got grandbabies? You NEED this!”

Best booster chairs for babies

Ingenuity Baby Base 2-in-1 Seat

“This is one of my favorite purchases for my baby to date. My 4-month-old is starting her first solids and I feed her once a day, around lunchtime. She is a supported sitter and uses her high chair at home. This is wonderful for days on the road. We’ve taken this to our weekend lunch outings, and she’s been able to sit at the table with us. The tray perfectly stores in it’s own little slot, and it has a compartment to hide all the straps, so there’s no dangling. It’s also really lightweight. I’ve carried the baby in her carrier and this thing in the same hand or arm. It also has nonslip pads underneath and they’re fabulous.”

Bumbo Multi Seat

“The Bumbo Multi Seat is awesome. We purchased it when our son was 4 months and trying to sit up on his own. We put it on the floor, and placed a few toys on the tray till he was able to really sit up on his own. As he got bigger, we removed the padded seat and used it in the bath. Now we never leave home without our Bumbo. Works great in restaurants. The Bumbo cleans up easily, and I like the way the table tray stores in the back. Doesn’t take up much room in the trunk of our car and it’s lightweight and easy to carry.”

Best folding booster chairs

Summer Infant Pop and Sit Portable Booster

“If I could give this ten stars, I WOULD! I get so many compliments on this little chair and it comes with us everywhere. I started using this when my son was 6 months old; he is now 11 months and it still works perfectly. It is easily cleaned with a hose, a pool, a lake … or if you are feeling domesticated, a kitchen sink works fine, too. It is super lightweight, foldable, and perfect for on-the-go whatever. I recommend this product to people camping, traveling, or visiting family. It has straps that can safely attach to a chair, or you can just plop it right on the ground … just buy it.”

Baby Delight Go With Me Chair

“This is a great chair for so many uses. I have used it for camping, at the beach, at Little League games, and even taken it to a friend’s house to use as a portable high chair. The chair comes fully assembled. Just open it up and snap the locking lever in place. This ensures that baby can’t close it up and pinch their fingers. A great feature. Chair also comes with a shade canopy and tray for feeding. Overall, I love this chair. It has so many uses and it’s so easy to transport.”

Best swiveling booster

Graco Swivi Seat 3-in-1 Booster High Chair

“If I could give this more stars I would! Super-easy chair to clean; just pull the straps out of the cover and pull off. My old high chair, I had to disassemble it by taking screws out just to get the cover off. The tray is huge and the white part comes off for easy cleanup. My old high chair, the buckles would pinch me or my son; these don’t! This chair is amazing! No complaints so far. I just bought a second one for my littlest!”

Best portable booster chairs

Go Anywhere Booster Seat

“This works great for travel! We had a hard time finding a portable booster seat that both attaches to the chair (not the table) and has shoulder restraints (not just a lap belt), and this one is just perfect. Folds easy to pack; fabric is easy to wipe clean. If you’ve got a wiggly kid, highly recommend this over a booster seat with just a lap belt.”

My Little Seat Travel High Chair

“This has been incredibly useful, and it now lives in our baby bag in case we need it while we’re out. We’ve used this in our hotel room on vacation, and we use it at the grandparents, so we don’t have to lug around the travel camp-chair-style high chair we’ve been using. This fits in a backpack. It’s great! No issues yet with any size of dining chair, and he fits in it just fine. Easy to install. SUCH a great design! Someone was very smart putting this one together. Thanks for creating this!”

The First Years On-The-Go Booster Seat

“We LOVE THIS SEAT! I was hesitant to buy because the next comparable product is twice the price, but I’m SO glad we went with this model. It packs down SO small, but it works PERFECT as a booster or high chair. We used this for a week at a vacation rental in Florida for our 8-month-old and it was the perfect height for him to belly up to the table with us. The self-inflating feature is so cool, and makes setup a breeze. It wipes clean just fine. I can’t recommend it highly enough. We’re going to take this along with us to restaurants from now on, too; no more dealing with icky high chairs.”

Ingenuity SmartClean Toddler Booster

“I wish I would have gotten this sooner!! We live in a small apartment, and my almost 2-year-old daughter’s high chair took up a lot of room in the dining area. This booster seat is amazing!! It straps to the back and bottom of the chair (and you can tighten it), so it is super secure. It is excellent quality, and made to grow with your toddler! It has a cushy plastic insert that you can remove as your child grows. It’s easy to clean, which is good because my daughter drops food and squishes it into the seat. I’ll definitely be using this until she’s big enough to sit in a chair by herself!”
