So.. the IKEA Antilop highchair, as good as they say?


One highchair seems to pop up on everything I read, and for for 12, I can't see any reason not to get it! Unless.. one of you lovely ladies has any reason to put me off?!!

So, did you love it? Was it really comfortable enough for daily use? Is it safe? Did you need the inflatable insert?

Thank you! x

I've just got one for my lo who can sit supported but not alone and he is fine without the insert. He sits up good and proper! I love it as it is so easy to clean. A lot of restaronts have it too so when you go out for meals your lo will be used to it. X

Thanks, Micah can sit unaided on the floor for a minute or so thenuses his hands to prop himself in a tripod position, so sounds like he'll do ok?

It's AWESOME! especially when it's so cheap! We used the cushion thing from 5-6 months while he was learning to sit and just joined us at the table to watch but when we started solids at 6 months and he could sit unaided he no longer needed the cushion.

I love it mostly because it's SO easy to clean and well because it was cheap Go for it!

A month ago I would've said it was awesome, and I still think it's a great chair for some babies. However, I have a little monkey, who, however tight we do the strap, can escape and stand in the chair! She nearly gave me a heart attack one day! So we need to purchase one with a 5 point harness or spend the whole meal time holding her down by her shoulders.
It's a great chair to keep clean though. Padded cushions may be more comfy for LOs but smell after a while. X

Unfortunately for us we needed a more supportive one as she wasn't stable enough to cope with sitting in that style of highchair until about 8 months (see previous threads on weaning prem babies if anyone has the urge to start).

Now can't really justify swapping our big chair for it - plus the big chair has a basket under where all her coats just get chucked so at least serves double duty in that regard. Once the big one starts to go it'll probably get replaced with something antilop-like - but gonna get our moneysworth first.

Mothercare used to sell 5 part harnesses/reins that only need a two point fitting if they still do I'm sure it could be used with the antilop somehow xx

Thanks for the suggestion but I bought one from mothercare yesterday and the clips aren't compatible!

I really like ours. We never used the insert - lo is a big boy so didnt really need it. It's easy to clean, easy to transport and lo loves it. And it was a bargain too. Like a pp said, loads of restaurants have it too x
