So our kindy has around 15 highchairs and interestingly, all of them are Ikea Antilop Highchairs. And when our business first started, we offered a Footsi to the kindy (free of charge) just to see how the kids responded to using a footrest in the highchair v. using one without a footrest.
Now that we have a Footsi footrest for the IKEA Antilop Highchair, I couldn't imagine life without it. Our daughter's ability to concentrate and eat increased ten-fold when she sat in the highchair with a footrest in it. Now why is that you are probably asking? Our lactation nurse at the hospital used to bang on about "flexible hips open the lips" in terms of motor skill development in infants, eg; baby latching on, milk transfer from Mum to bub and poor weight gain in baby.
A blog to discuss the benefits of children feeding best with solid foot support, either via a fixed footrest (in some high chairs) or using our product the the Footsi which is specifically designed as an Ikea Antilop high chair footrest (or similar highchair, like Kmart Quadro or Target Snacka). Feel free to join in the discussion. We welcome your feedback.
