      Hi Francois! Isn’t it awesome?! I use 1 part vinegar to about 2.5-3 parts water. :)

        Thank you os much Andrea! Would you recommend rincing afterwards, or wiping is enough?

        Wiping is enough for sure!

    Can the high chairs stack? I’m interested in purchasing several for my home daycare, but only if I can stack them for storage!

      They do stack…very well! But only with the trays off. Go for it!

    Best $25 I ever spent! I love this high chair. It’s so easy to clean, my son is comfortable in it, and it’s by far the cheapest option on the market. Our daycare centre uses this high chair, and every single restaurant we visited in Europe earlier this year also used this high chair. If it’s durable enough for commercial use, it’s durable enough for us!

    safety?
    hi! great post! i am looking into getting the antilop for my six month old, but i was nervous about safety…e.g. the chair tipping over with the child in it…not necessarily an adult knocking it over. it just doesn’t seem as sturdy as some of the other more “bulky” high chairs. have any of you had any issues with this?

      We’ve been using the IKEA Antilop high chairs for 4.5 years; we have one for each child… they’ve been between 6 months old (about 20-25 lbs) and my 5 year old (50 lbs) can still fit in there and we have NEVER had a tipping issue. They are really rather amazing…and considering the cost, not sure they can be beat in the high chair category.

        Hi, we’re looking at buying an antolop high chair, but we have limited space and this would only work for us if the legs are easy to remove and re-attach regularly. Do you think this chair would work for us?

        Hi! Well, it depends…I have one that’s easy and one that’s challenging for whatever reason. But my strong hubby doesn’t seem to have a problem. If you have limited space and need to fold every day, you might also want to look at the bloom nano: http://www.canadianfamily.ca/kids/baby/review-5-best-high-chairs/slide/bloom-nano/

    Kristy – the tray does make less noise over time. It gets easier and easier to put in AND pull out. Or maybe you just stop noticing…

    Thanks for your comment, Karina – what a good point. Though The K Man suffered from a bit of reflux, it was obviously pretty minor because he never had issues in the high chair. I so appreciate you pointing this out for other moms, especially those with undiagnosed reflux. :)

    just a note on why some babes might need a reclining seat…reflux. it’s why we had to get one. anything upright crunched her tummy too much and she’d throw up and be in pain. just so you know!

    I am in love with my Antilop!!! I seriously don’t know why anyone buys anything besides this high chair. We have a tiny house with zero space for stuff like high chairs so this slides under the counter beside our one stool at our breakfast bar thingy in our kitchen. I also take it on the deck sometimes and dump a bucket of water over it to clean it. Love how easy it is to take apart (could actually bring it somewhere else if need be). The only downside I’d add to your list is that the tray is crazy hard to get off. Every time I take it off it sounds like I’ve broken it, but other than that LOVE!! I’ve sometimes wondered about others like the Tripp Trapp so now I feel better that you’ve tried a bunch and still liked the Antilop best. Seriously has to be one of the best things Ikea’s ever made.
