FAQ

cushion covers

You will need a cushion insert to use our covers. If you already have the IKEA Antilop support cushion, there's no need to get a new one. But if you don't already have a cushion, you can purchase our cushion insert separately. Please note, you only need one cushion insert per highchair, then you can change the cover as often as you like.

Our patterned cushion covers are 100% natural cotton fabric and not wipeable. The front-side designs are printed with eco-friendly, wash-safe inks that can be machine washed. See our IG story highlight called "Washing" to hear real moms talk about our covers’ washability!

Our vegan leather covers are wipeable, but should not be machine washed.

We recommend the highchair cushion for all ages! When your babies are little and unsteady, they need it for support. As they grow, the cushion becomes an important tool to keep your child in a proper eating posture (watch our video explanation).
Unfortunately we aren't able to do custom items at this time. We buy fabric and sew our covers in large batches to get people their items as quickly and as affordably as possible.
Little wrinkles can be removed in the dryer. For more stubborn wrinkles, turn the cover inside out and iron using a medium-high heat.

placemats

Silicone is highly stain resistant. It may appear stained after using a red or orange sauce, but if you keep using and and washing like normal, it should go away on its own. Soaking the placemat in water overnight may speed up the process. You can also soak in hydrogen peroxide or leave the placemat in the sun if needed, but note that prolonged sun exposure may fade the color.
Our placemats are made of 100% FDA food grade silicone. As with many silicone products, the vulcanization (hardening) process can create a slight smell. The smell dissipates with time, sometimes taking up to a month. Most silicone products take longer than a month to go from production to consumer, so the smell is gone by the time it is received. However, our placemats sometimes go from production to consumer in about a weeks time. The best way to speed up the process is to heat the placemat in the oven at a temperature of 200 degrees for an hour or so.
All placemats have been tested by SGS - an independent leader in testing and certification of juvenile products. The most recent testing/certification date is August 12, 2021. A summary of the testing performed can be found below to certify the high standards of the FDA approved silicone placemats.

footrests

We recommend first cleaning the legs with rubbing alcohol to see if natural oils from food or hands are causing it to slip. If that doesn't help, please contact us so we can help troubleshoot!

leg wraps

Around 2018, IKEA started rolling out a new version of highchair legs that angle out more. However, many IKEA locations still have the older style legs they sell with new highchairs (these legs were not recalled and are still safe to use). You can check your highchair leg measurements to know if you have the older or newer style:

-Older style IKEA ANTILOP legs measure 28 7/8 inches from top to bottom and are completely straight
-Newer style IKEA ANTILOP legs measure 29 3/8 inches from top to bottom and have a slight bend at the top

You can use our leg wraps with either leg length. We recommend installing with the legs off the highchair, starting at the bottom. If you start at the top of the leg, you may need to trim the excess at the bottom with an exacto knife after installation.
Yes! We recommend installing with the legs off the highchair, starting at the bottom. If you start at the top of the leg, you may need to trim the excess at the bottom with an exacto knife after installation. (Click to watch installation video)

dinnerware

Our dinnerware is dishwasher safe. Whether washing in the dishwasher or by hand, use an oil and fragrance free soap. Soaps that contain essential oils, antibacterial agents or moisturizers have oils that can stick to silicone and cause an unpleasant taste.
If your silicone starts tasting like soap, most likely the dish soap or detergent you are using has caused an oil residue to build up on the surface. White spots after washing is another indicator of oil residue. To avoid this issue, use an oil and fragrance free soap. Soaps that contain essential oils, antibacterial agents or moisturizers all have oils that can stick to silicone and cause an unpleasant taste. If you have silicone that already tastes like soap, here’s a few ways you can fix it: 1. Rub a fresh lemon all over the silicone and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse and air dry. 2. Soak overnight with white vinegar 3. Boil in water for 10 minutes 4. Bake silicone products in the oven at 250°F for one hour If boiling or baking, please be careful when removing! 😊

This is totally a personal preference! When my little ones were in their messiest phase, I had three cushion covers I rotated every 2-3 days. I could have gotten by with one placemat since I rinse immediately after each meal and let the mat air dry on the tray (but I ended up with a few colors because it’s so fun to mix and match!). Multiples would also be helpful if you wash in the dishwasher or you like to throw the mat in the sink after meals and wash later.
