High chair review

Since Emily has now started weaning, we've been looking at various different high chairs for her. Now she has a lot better head control and can sit comfortably in her bumbo, we felt that she was ready for a high chair. Who knew there is so many different types, and how expensive they could get! Also I wanted something that was practical, style isn't a must for me. Like me you may have noticed that Ikea's Antilop is the preferred choice in many child-friendly establishments and your little on may have actually already tried the highchair. 


After a trip to Ikea, the Antilop was the the one we decided to purchase. At a bargain price of £13 who can complain? It does the job, Emily loves it, it feels safe and secure. I also love the fact you can unclip the legs which has come in handy for when we traveled to Emily's grandparents for tea. It's a very compact highchair measuring only - 58cm (W) x 62cm (D) x 90cm (H). The other impressive feature is if you have more than one, they can stack on top of each other. Which is good if you don't have very much space. 

It is also super easy to clean, The tray unclips and is quick to wipe over and thats it. No fuss or stress. I know it looks really simple, but isn't that what you want? I like the fact there is no seat cushions or padding, or little holes for food to find its way into or under. You can simply wipe clean and the entire thing is spotless in mere minutes. Obviously we have the insert, but it just slips in and we can take it right out again and stick the cover in the washing machine if needs be. The little insert that they sell is £6, It is brilliant you fill the insert with air, and then it sits inside a material cover. It's perfect for Emily just because of her age, she needs that little bit of extra support.  


It does come with a lap strap, which if I am honest we haven't used for far. Emily can't go anywhere, and she isn't left unsupervised because of her age. I'm sure as she gets older we will find a use for it. Emily loves the independence of sitting up herself and will happily play with her toys while sitting in it. Emily seems happy with it, and she looks really comfortable! 

This gets a thumbs up from us! Also a thumbs up from Emily. Just look how happy she looks sitting in it. I never even thought to look in ikea for a highchair! That shop amazes me sometimes! In total it cost us just £19. I'd happily of paid double that though. 

What high chair did you go for?

  3. Sometimes these more practical and slightly cheaper items actually do a better job. I love the look of Amelia's high chair but the cushion layer doesnt sit exactly on top meaning the gap gets filled with food and its a huge faff to clean!! I'm hoping she will sit up to the table with a booster seat soon as I hate cleaning it! So fab that ikea do an insert too!! Thanks for linking up #mummymonday (co-host) x

    1. Oh i would hate to clean in between all the little gaps. Must drive you mad. I would definitely recommend this one if you want something quick and easy to clean. At such a bargain price too! x
