We've seen the stokke hhair chair but weren't sure how comfy it looked or if it was too expensive. We've seen some similar eg cosatto trof, kub lumia but not sure how good they would be. Any experience of these chairs or style and if they are a good buy!

We have an IKEA antilop which are so cheap and it's been AMAZING! I'm so glad we didn't spend lots on one, there is just no need IMO. The antilop is easy to clean, comes apart in about 5 seconds (we've taken it out for meals, to friends etc so easily) and P has always been super comfy in it.
I realise that isn't exactly what you asked!!!

We have wooden ones but kids are older..not sure how comfy they would be for a wee baby. X

We have a Stokke Tripp Trapp and love it. I like it because it goes right up to the table, and adjusts as E grows. Obviously I can't ask her if its comfy, but she has been sitting in it since she was 5 months and always seems to enjoy it! You can get cushions for it, but they'd get pretty mucky with squished food. We have the Ikea Antilop at my parents. It's ok, but not a patch on the Tripp Trapp IMO. My main issue with it is that it doesn't have a footrest, she tends to swing her legs around which then causes her to slump.
We bought ours secondhand for £45. If you wanted new though, the Babydan chair is very similar, cheaper and hardly different. Heartnurse has a Stokke and a Babydan for the beans and there really is no difference in the way they perform.

I will be getting a Tripp trapp style one as I need one that I can tuck under the table rather than be sticking out. We have very limited space and my son trips over everything as it is! My nephews have them and they are great, they have been sitting in them since babies and you can buy a cushion which you'd have to be prepared for getting very messy.

We have a tripp trapp and love it. Zoe is now almost 4.5 and still uses it for all meals, crafting etc. cost per use is great. She has never complained it is uncomfortable, and boy does she like to find things to complain about.
We will be getting another one for noodles as can't see a time anytime soon when zoe won't be using it.

We have a trip trap and love it. My 4 year old still uses his so we will be getting another for baby bubble. Like others have said, you can get cushions for them but we gave up on those pretty quickly due to the mess! H has certainly never said its uncomfortable. Would def recommend.

We have three tripp trapps and love them and can't see us stopping using them an time soon (eldest is three). Been using them since the twins were 5 months old (we actually used the inflatable antilop support in one of them to pad it out for our littlest twin!). I'd go for the real deal.

I've no experience of them, as they weren't the style we were looking for, but is this similar? I've just noticed the price!

It looks the same LM but not sure if it converts into an adult dining chair later on. The tripp trapp chair grows with the child.
We have the svan chair which is pretty much the same thing. We were going to buy the tripp trapp and then got offered this one for a fiver (they're £200+ new) so snapped it up. I am however, worried how it will clean up during BLW.
