Easiest high chair to clean?

We've been feeding baby in the bumbo (on the floor:-) and he is making a complete mess of himself by sticking his hands in his mouth after every bite! I've just recently heard about BLW and think he'd be great at it, so I'd like to find a high chair that doesn't have as many crevices and places for food to get stuck or stained on. I don't forsee myself doing much other than wiping down the visible areas of the high chair, but it bothers me that food gets stuck under little plastic grooves and stuff. I don't want to have to go in with a q-tip for cleaning Does anyone have any suggestions for brands/models to look for? Something not too expensive??

I just make sure everything is washable and then hose it down outside or in the bathtub every once in a while.

As for a high chair. I really like the ones that attach to a regular chair.

We have the fisher price space saver.

Inglesina makes a great portable high chair if you're looking for one...it's washable too. In addition to that, I'd reccomend purchasing a splat mat.

I have the healthy care booster, Fisher Price I think? No crevices, no padding, tray insert pops into the dishwasher, wipes out pretty easily. I have a big behemoth one in the downstairs and it's a PITA to clean. Much prefer the booster.

Re: Easiest high chair to clean?

I love the ikea ones!! They are solid color plastic, with detatchable tray. No padding. I can hose it off occasionally too! For boosters, once they are about 2yrs old, I like the squooshie ones. (hmm, don't know if I spelled that right.) They are all one piece, and soft like a bumbo. Until my babies can sit up alone, I feed them in a bouncy seat(as long as it doesn't lay back much). I put a beach towel over the seat. And then another towel over their lap. It makes clean up really easy!!!

I third (or fourth?) the Fisher Price healthy care booster. We use it from 5 months to 5 years on all our kids.

Re: Easiest high chair to clean?

I'll have to check out the fisher price booster. I have an ikea red plastic one that is very simple and easy to clean, but my daughter was able to twist and squirm her way out as soon as she was starting to pull up. The fall hazard is pretty great for my kids who like to get out! I think it's because the back isn't very high. Does the fisher price have a 5 point harness?

Ikea has one for $20 which is awesome. No crevices and the legs pop off so you can fit the entire seat in the sink to soak it...if stuff should happen to get dried on.
