Help please!!
I've got bought the Antilop Ikea high chair & have also bought the Stadig cushion for extra support for my DS. How the heck do you inflate the cushion been trying for ages. I know I'm suffering from baby brain but this is ridiculous.

I tried to squeeze &blow but didn't work for me. When partner arrived home he managed it using this method though wasn't that easy.
Thanks for advice xx

I couldn't do it either if that helps! My DH managed it perfectly and I still don't know how. Baby brain is just fab!

Slightly late reply & you may have already solved this but I have just had this same issue myself. I found that squeezing the valve with my teeth whilst blowing was the only way I could do it. It was too fiddly to try & squeeze it with my fingers.

My DH managed it in the end. Can't believe how difficult it was ESP with baby brain

If the cushion doesn't work a folded up towel is quite good (and washable)

I had to end up using an electric pump (from dds paddling pool)

Wish I had seen this sooner!! That fucking cushion was the bane of my existence! Very glad that DS can sit up better in the Antilop now and doesn't need it. Felt like stabbing that cushion with a pin after trying to inflate it...
