Anyone have this high chair from Ikea?
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30069724

Love it? Hate it? I used to have a big ugly Fisher Price high chair for my older ds, but it took up way too much room, and it had too many nooks and crannies for collecting mess. So I'm looking for something a little smaller and easier to clean for dd. Any other suggestions are welcome too!

We don't have it, but I was at IKEA with a girlfriend and we were looking at it, it seemed a little wobbly to us?? But then again we were trying to wobble it...

I sold my daughter's high chair when she was a baby for the same reasons you mentioned ditching yours, and then I just used her Fisher Price Booster Seat.

I actually have TWO of them (one kid.. lol) It is the same hichair they have in the cafeteria area there at IKEA- pretty sturdy, SUUPERRR easy to clean, I cannot emphasize that enough-- SUUUPPRRRRRR easy to clean.

(We were in a temporary housing situation of 6 mos, so we re-bought some things, including the hichiar, is why I have two. )

We have it and like it. Like the PP said, it's really easy to clean. And, it's pretty compact which is an added bonus.

We have it and I LOVE IT. It's way easy to clean and if we want to pull DS up to the table we can take the tray off. It's not wobbly for us, but our dining room is carpeted so maybe that makes a difference?

I don't own it, but I use it every time we go to Ikea and eat in the restaurant. It is sturdy. I would buy it. We have a hand me down highchair, but if we didn't this would be the one we owned! I LOVE IKEA!!!

I love IKEA stuff. I don't think our house would be furnished at all if it wasn't for them. And thankfully, they have fairly good toxicity standards, or so I'm told. I figure they comply more with European Union requirements which are likely considerably better than in the US.

Wondered if anyone has used their new folding high chair, called Spoling? http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00145060

Or the kind that clip on to the side of the table?

Riverscout, I'm going to check out the booster seat. We use a Svan at home but need something for G&G's house and we're in an apartment so space is always hard to come by.

I've asked my MIL to get us one. She's talking about going to Target too and I'm thinking "um... great, just include the receipt so I can return whatever huge thing you get there and please get me the portable Ikea one too??" but all I replied in the email was "just keep in mind we have a small space!"

Love it.


We have one at our house, one at Grandma's house, and one at Great-Grandma's house.


DH bought long wooden dowels the same diameter as the original legs, only several inches longer. He takes DS out to the workshop to do "projects" and switches out the legs so the highchair is the same height as their workbench. It's the cutest thing ever.


And it is super easy to clean.

we have that exact chair and we did the same thing!

Ikea here has a really cute wooden high chair too. I was always so tempted to get it.

We love ours. Small, easy to clean, and cheap!

We have never had a problem with sturdiness. Mine has a 40lb 2.5yo hanging off of it all the time, and it has never budged.

We just got one last weekend and so far, we love it! DB feels so happy sitting at eye level with us and banging his toys around. It's very sturdy and compact, and looks very easy to clean (we haven't started solids yet so I wouldn't really know).

We got the attachable tray and also a little stripy cushion that goes around the inside of the seat to offer more stability and padding. So cute.

At our Ikea, they're downstairs with the high chairs in the furniture self-service area. The little cushions are in the baby section of the store.

It's sold separately.

All of the sudden I'm feeling like throwing the kids in the car and going to Ikea, but it's 2 hours away. I guess we'd be there in time for lunch so baby could try out the high chair in the cafeteria while DD and I eat some Swedish meatballs. :

Yay! I'm so happy to hear that people like this chair. I bought one off of craigslist for super cheap because it looks so easy to use and to clean. Glad to hear it's just as functional as I'd hoped!

We have it and we LOVE IT :. We bought the chair with the tray and the pillow. I first thought the chair was pretty ugly but now I think it's cute - or DD just looks awfully cute in it. It is very easy to clean and not wobbly at all.

The legs can adjust separately so if it is wobbly, you can fix it. I have the "wooden" one and we like it just fine, though we're all clumsy and trip over the legs constantly LOL
