Tip for installing the Footrest 💡
Try our Self-Adhesive Leg Wrap for covering chair legs, due to its textured material, creates friction and prevents the footrest from possible sliding. However, in cases of older and more active children, it may be necessary to purchase one of our supports (sold separately) in our online store, which completely prevent the footrest from slipping.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to install the IKEA high chair footrest?
To set up the adjustable footrest for the IKEA Antilop high chair, follow these steps: place the o-rings onto the front two legs of the chair at a height that matches your baby's leg length, then attach the wooden footrest. That's it – you're all set! This feature prevents your baby from slumping in the high chair, making it a significant advantage!
Does your footrest only work on IKEA Antilop highchair?
The footrest is designed to fit the dimensions of the IKEA Antilop dining chairs, but it can also be used on baby dining chairs with similar designs, such as the Happy Bear Continente chair. See the description for measurements to help you decide.
Do babies need footrest when eating?
It is not essential, but a highchair with a footrest that follows the baby's growth allows for good stability, safety and comfort. It also helps the baby to maintain a correct posture, thus being able to flex the knees to 90º, contributing to the good development of motor skills and concentration at mealtime. It ensures postural stability and consequently the mandible or lower jaw which, in addition to helping to reduce the risk of choking, is essential for harmonious craniofacial growth.
What is the weight limit for the footrest?
The footrest should not be used as a full body support and cannot bear the sustained weight of a child's entire body. It is designed to hold the weight of a child's legs, typically up to 3 years old (~15kg). The baby may try to support the whole body on the footrest, and in these cases, we recommend purchasing our PLA Support or Zinc Plated Support, which prevent the footrest from sliding.
My footrest slips. What can I do?
The original legs of the chair, being metal, can contribute to the footrest slipping as it accumulates oils or even moisture. We recommend pushing the rings all the way up and then cleaning the chair legs with alcohol. Allow to air dry and then put the rings back down. If the footrest continues to slide, we recommend purchasing our PLA Support, Zinc Plated Support or our Self-Adhesive Leg Wrap for covering chair legs, which prevent the footrest from sliding.
Is Antilop high chair safe?
The IKEA Antilop high chair boasts exceptional durability, functionality, and safety, all at a fraction of the price compared to other high chairs available in the market.
