Creating a baby registry is so much fun as an expecting parent, but it’s also overwhelming. As if trying to remember all the essentials isn’t hard enough, there are hundreds of brands making it easy to get decision paralysis. One thing I’m glad I did was seek the advice of other “been-there-done-that” moms when building our baby registry. That way, we avoided purchasing items that we wouldn’t use or need, and strongly leaned on brand recommendations vs. having to do hours of research on our own.
One product recommendation I received from a good friend was the IKEA Antilop High chair. I’m so glad I did, and here are the reasons why:
Great price without sacrificing quality
$19.99. Yes you read that right. The IKEA Antilop high chair is less than $20. It is easy to be drawn to the newest and more expensive models for your new baby purchases. A high chair is one item that I personally don’t think you need to spend an arm and a leg for. The IKEA Antilop high chair is extremely durable, functional, and safe at fraction of the cost of other high chairs you’ll find out there.
Easy to assemble and transport
The IKEA Antilop high chair takes seconds to put together and take apart. It is one IKEA product that I can gladly report has very few steps and pieces 😉 It’s very lightweight, so we can easily move it from our kitchen and dining area during snack and meal times. You can also take it apart and store when you don’t need it by simply detaching the legs. One slight disadvantage is the tray is sometimes difficult to snap off, but that doesn’t bother me much, because I don’t need to remove the tray to seat her in it.
Easy to clean
The cleaning factor was big for me. Kennedy makes an absolute mess every meal she eats. This highchair is a plastic-like material making it so easy to wipe clean. Some moms told me other fabric highchairs tend to get dirty quickly with crumbs that are impossible to remove from the crevices. The IKEA Antilop high chair has no nooks and crannies, so is extremely low maintenance. Any baby product that ranks high in the ease of use category is a win for me 🙂
Can be accessorized
One con to this highchair is that it does not come with a foot rest. I was excited to learn there is an Etsy vendor who makes accessories* for this highchair. We purchased a wooden foot rest to add to her chair, as well as a cushion when she was younger to give her more support. The vendor makes printed cushions, placemats, foot rests, and even vinyl leg wraps if you want to change the color of the legs.
As you can see, I’m a big fan of the IKEA Antilop high chair because it’s cheap, easy to assemble and transport, low maintenance, and can be accessorized. I would highly recommend it!
