highchair hiccup.

we’ve reached the great highchair dilemma and I’m hoping you can help!

I’m looking for a highchair that’s…
  • durable to last through another couple of kids
  • easy to clean
  • stylish, I’m a sucker for a good pattern, bold color, or modern design
  • not too cumbersome, either folds to store or does not occupy too much floor space
  • one that doesn't break the bank, $300 for a highchair? no way.
for big H we owned a Boon Flair which we had to sell before moving back to Canada. i loved it's look and function, but it was much much too large for our much smaller home here!

enter the antilop

We’ve already purchased an ikea antilop… we waited nearly a year to have them restocked here in Calgary so I wanted to nab one before they’re long gone again. should i just stick with this fella, give it a whirl, and then make the ultimate decision?

what i love...
the size & overall simplicity
the price
easy to clean
tray replacement can be purchased if need be

what i dislike...
my concern of the antilop's sturdiness
not overly comfy or cushy {tho i discovered this fun DIY cushion}

other options?

other brands, styles, boosters?

I’d love for you to share your faves, and what you love about them. It’ll help me along in my research on our quest to find the magic seat for our babe.

I love our booster. We just put it on the bar chair where we all eat and he can be a part of the family.

You are going to think we are crazy, but we bought the Babee Tenda feeding table. It was pricey and not very stylish, but the practicality was incredible. I never had to worry about our kids tipping over or climbing out. They had a whole area to make a mess that wasn't my kitchen table. It folds right up and we would take it to my in-laws home when we visited. Here's a link: http://www.babeetenda.com/safetabl.htm
The company has been around for years and years. This is one of the pros for me. After nearly 8 years, it still looks brand new.

i love my ikea high chair. i have never worried about the sturdiness of it. and i love how simple it is.

of course there are cooler ones out there. but they pretty much look just like the ikea one just a little more snazzy. eg. zuma something

anyway crew has loved it from 6 mo until now. plus it is easy to brake down when we want to take it somewhere.
