    Default Highchair

    What highchair do you use. and what are the pros and cons.

    I have a 9 month old and need a new highchair. I was given one but I hate it. I want something easy to clean and have a tray.

    We did have a fancy one that cost about $200 (was given to us) and it was a nightmare to clean!

    IKEA. You can literally hose it down if you need to. It's the easiest thing to clean and there are no gross areas where food can hide.

    You can also take the legs out easily, pop it in the car and take it places. We used to always take ours to friends houses or the park.

    Does anyone have any views on the Boori cot range? Or any other recommendations?

    I'm going against the grain here. We've got a peg perego zero3 chair and I love it. It has an 'Eco leather' (fancy way of saying vinyl I think lol) liner but doesn't have too many creases to get dirty and it's not plastic-y like a lot of liners in high chairs. I got this chair because I liked the look and feel of it, it reclines and is height adjustable but mainly because it has an adjustable footrest. I read an article about high chairs which said a footrest is important to assist core stability and fine motor skills as dangling legs can take bubs focus off doing motor tasks (picking up and putting food to mouth). I know as an adult I find it much more comfortable to do things with my feet securely resting on the ground so thought that would be important for bub too.

    We bought an expensive ($300+) Peg Perego Siesta. A few months later we got jack of it and bought an Ikea Antilop for about $20. I wish we'd just gone straight for the Ikea one!
