sick of my highchair as tray doesn't remove and 10mth old ds plasters everything with food, so hard to clean and get him in and out. also have flat with very small kitchen and blooming thing in my way! what does everyont think of those clamp on table top chairs? seem quite cute and could chuck whole cover in washer to clean...or a baby dan? only 69.00 at kiddicare and would obviously last much longer...but does it have good harness for 10mth old, hard to c in pics. some help pls!

Why don't you get the lovely IKEA highchair that has a removable tray and costs a fraction of other prices? We have them for the DTs and they are wonderful. Also if they ever get too covered in food they can be hosed down in the bath. Wonderful!

when you go to IKEA you need to make sure to buy the harness. It's sold separately, but ultimately worth it.

Another vote for Safety First booster seat with tray. Can push it under the table like the other chairs and good for family meals as tray comes off and it is a booster seat. Ds has been able to climb up and clip himself in since 20 months.

Im thinking about getting an antilop too - Marslady do you really think the harness is essential - They dont look very easy to escape from as the seat seems quite small

Trouble is im also very tempted by the blames or gulliver one from ikea - Although not as easy to clean they do look alot nicer - We dont have a separate kitchen so highchair is always visable

But should it it really worth spending £26 £35 when the Antilop for £11.50 will do - It just doesnt look as nice!!!!!

On the other hand Every other wooden highchair i have seen costs a lot more than the ones at ikea - and tbh i prefer the ikea ones!!

Ikea highchairs

we use this one

for our 2.9 year old and 11 month old. Easy to clean, stable and look smart.

They also sell them in John Lewis and mail order from Blooming Marvellous.

You might get a better idea of what they look like from this link:

see them here also

Go to page 3 on this link and they are at the bottom 'modelled' by a baby

No its not modelled by a baby on page 3 - my mistake. But it is pictured in situ fastened to a chair
