Have A Seat

A portable baby seat for your little bundle, this ingenious harness invented by new mom Carren Rieger securely straps to adult chairs to instantly accommodate children five months old through their toddler years. Designed with a five-point safety harness and fully adjustable straps, this streamlined device makes feeding on-the-go safe and simple. Great for travel, restaurant dining, or just visiting grandparents and friends, Porta Chair is the perfect travel accessory for new parents.

The Porta Chair is machine washable, lightweight and AZO dye, phthalate and formaldehyde-free. A former strategy consultant, Rieger designed the Porta Chair Harness after moving to Australia in 2006. Challenged by the demands of traveling with young children, Rieger dreamed up this portable solution to the traditional highchair, crediting her "on-the-go babies" for its creation. Supports up to 35 lbs. Made in China.

Upper age and weight limit: 30 months or 35 lbs. Machine wash separately (warm or cold water), hang or lay flat to dry.

The Porta Chair is designed to work as a temporary high chair and provide support for your baby while sitting on most adult chairs. Carefully read and follow all warnings and instructions before use. Your child must be secured using the adjustable shoulder straps and five point safety harness at all times. The height adjustable straps are designed to keep a baby from gaining forward or sideward momentum to create a stability risk. Never leave child unattended while using the Porta Chair. Never allow the child to attempt to stand up while in the Porta Chair and do not use if child is trying to rock back and forth as this could cause the chair to topple over.

Comments about PORTACHAIR HARNESS:

Super lightweight and easy to use once you practice adjusting the straps on chairs. Our six month old seems to like it. A lot better than restaurant high chairs. Great for traveling; grandparents will not have to purchase a regular high chair.

Would be nice to have shoulder/neck pads to cover the straps for extra cushion and to stop chaffing; we just made our own by putting some burp clothes around the strap and buckles.

      Comments about PORTACHAIR HARNESS:

      The word 'harness' in the product name causes the questions in this review to relate to sport - namely climbing. This is a fantastic, easy to use portable seat for a small child. It adapts to nearly every style of chair, is well made and easy to use. It was well received and much, much better than expected!

      A must-have for parents on the go

      Comments about PORTACHAIR HARNESS:

      We've used this portable highchair at friends' houses, as an extra for kids that come to our house and even outside with our own patio furniture. The belts could stand to be a little longer to fit wider chairs, but it has worked on most chairs we've tried. It rolls up small to easily fit in a diaper bag and, most importantly, it's washable!

          I gave this as a baby shower gift. She was very excited to receive it since they are always on the go and don't plan on slowing down with their baby. She had seen similar 'portable child seats' and said this one is easier to use and can be used on more different types of chairs.

              We ordered this portable high chair to take on vacation and it was awesome! It attaches easily to anything with a back; we even used it in a football stadium as a seat for our 8 month old and it worked perfectly. It also rolls up small enough to fit in our diaper bag so it's perfect for travel.

                  I gave this as a gift to a few new parents. It is a perfect extra piece of baby equipment. It can travel to restaurants and homes of friends and family. No need to stock up on highchairs at the grandparents' homes. I await feedback from the new parents in a few months when the kids are seated upright! D. Stillman

                    This instant baby chair is really great - a wonderful idea, compact for easy travel (would fit into a purse or diaper bag easily), washable (necessary for anything near baby's mouth!), subtle color, easy design. My only suggested improvement would be to add a cushion for the back of the baby's head if you are using a chair that has a hard surface and it's near the baby's head when you've assembled it on the chair. This is an easy fix though!

                      Being a very busy mom, this portable high chair has been very resourceful for me and my hubby. The baby sits fine in it and he is safe. And if food gets on it, just throw it in the wash. Easy as pie! I highly recommend this item! I've given a few as baby gifts too.

                      This is a great idea! We, too, have encountered child "un-friendly" places... And even if a place might have a high chair, sometimes those straps are pretty gross! This is great!

                      I love it. I would feel very comfortable putting my nephew (and my future children) in this. A bit bulky for always carrying around, but still small enough to leave in the car. Even better because it is MACHINE WASHABLE!!!!
