Even though the Spoling high chair from Ikea is cheap, it is a complete waste of money. First of all it isn't padded. You'll have to fit a cusion over the head rest, otherwise your baby may hit their head on it if they start wiggling about. Secondly, it is definitively not easy to wipe. Food will seep through the plastified fabric and stick to it. It begins to smell very quickly. You can wash it in the washing machine, but then you have no high chair while it's drying. There's a zip for undoing it, but you need a paper clip to open it - this is a safety 'feature'. The last thing you want when you got a crying baby. In short: false economy. We've had this rubbish for three months and now are buying a different one.
