This seems like a lovely high chair until your baby actually starts eating it. Then you will curse yourself for not buying a cheap one from Ikea that you can actually wash. The chair is huge and study, with lovely leather-looking padding that makes your baby look like they are sitting in an executive chair in some office. However, the padding is full of awful nooks and crannies that make it virtually impossible to wash. The padding does come off but I would not recommend this chair for an infant slinging baby mash all over the chair. You will never get it clean unless you spend forever wiping it out. I got more use out of using it as a baby seat. The five point harness, adjustable height, wheels, and soft padding made it ideal for this purpose for me. It does sort of fold closed but not really, and remains quite bulky. We did use it through three kids but only because of all the money we spent on it. I do regret buying it, it is not practical.
