After about four years of making do I broke down and bought a chair at one of those big box office stores. A high-back office chair looked so professional that I went with that style. I couldn't afford a leather chair like my dad had, so I went with a fabric-covered chair. I thought I'd really improved my seating arrangement. I had softened the seat, but I wasn't any more comfortable than I had been before. Sure I now had a swivel chair -- unlike any of my dining room chairs that I'd used, but the first one just didn't fit me. I have now been through more chairs I could almost start my own office chair store!
First you will need to decide how long you want to be able to use the chair. Some baby high chairs will fit a child that is not even able to sit up yet unassisted yet to a 1 year old. Like the Bumbo booster chair for example. It is a great chair for little ones because it supports your child almost like you were holding them. It curls around their legs and is cupped on the bottom to have a comfortable fit. Although this is a great baby booster seat, this chair will not be able to be used for long period of time. This chair does not have straps to connect it to a regular chair to insure that when your child starts to move around more they do not flip it over with them in it. So you will have to stay close at all times while your child is in this seat. Another example is the baby high chair; these chairs typically fit old children from 1 year and above. While these chairs are sturdy and can be used for a long period of time, putting a smaller child in them usually swallows them and is very uncomfortable at first. One of the final examples is the baby booster seat; this chair can be used from about 6 months old when a child typically can sit unassisted to 3+ years old. This chair can be used almost the entire time but it is typically flat chairs with little cushion or support on the side of the chair, but is still a great chair. You will just need to decide how long you want to be able to use this chair and if you want to purchase another when your child grows out of the chair.
My first ergonomic chair had an interesting and promising design. I had two problems with it, though. The small issue was that the chair tilted me forward and I had to fight to keep the seat level -- I guess the base was too tall for me. But, the biggest issue was the smell. For the first two weeks I couldn't be in my office for more than two hours at a time because the smell would bother my sinuses so much. It surprised me the smell lasted so long, especially given that my office was in the yurt at the time, and the yurt has a good ventilation system (lovely way of saying the air exchange through and around the walls was active). Even after a week-long trip the smell overpowered me. Fortunately it didn't bother My Bigger Half's assistant, so he bought it from me for her to use (she got to graduate from one of my office chair experiments). So much for that ergonomic desk chair.
