Hi all,

My DS is almost 7 mo and has just learned to sit unaided... but does sometimes topple over (on to cushions smile )
He is very tall for his age... so which highchair would you recommend ??

Thanks in advance for all your help smile

I'd like to be original...but it's antilop all the way here. I might add we had a lovely wooden one for dc 1 and 2. Load of rubbish!! Pretty rubbish but still rubbish.

Antilop, you will not regret it, I promise smile.

I started with a stupid expensive high chair, all very pretty and grand but my god it was impractical. Food squished in seams, which were a bitch to get out. Well I gave that away and shelled out all of £5 on a second hand Antilop and it has been ace. Easy to clean, study, robust.

We had the Graco Contempo (free w Tesco club card vouchers) rather than the Antilop as i wanted to fold it down and get it out of the way between meals. I eventually got cross with cleaning all the bits out of the padding and decided I wanted to replace it with something more like a piece of furniture to be out all the time, as DS started colouring/doing activities at the table as he passed one) and so got the Baby Dan which I love, DS now sits right at the table with us. This is also possible with the Antilop and given its under £20 reckon its a great starting place.

Antilop, it staggers me people buy anything else lol!!

My little one does like to escape so I keep him seated with the use of a set of clippasafe reigns and some ingenious knots!

Yet another vote for the Antilop here too. Been using it for a year now and it's brilliant. So easy to keep clean!
