First they sleep (hopefully) and now it’s time to teach your baby to eat...fun and messy times ahead! The first step to a successful food journey is as easy as making sure your baby is comfy in their highchair.
Did you know babies will concentrate for longer periods in the highchair when they are sitting upright and their legs and feet are supported with a footrest...amazing!
This is why I created the Footsi® footrests for your tiny human to enjoy.

Baby won’t eat? Baby distracted in high chair? Baby wiggles legs uncontrollably in the high chair?
These were all problems faced by an Aussie Mum who loved the ease of cleaning the Ikea Antilop high chair but noticed without a footrest, her daughter fidgeted and looked uncomfortable with her feet dangling down, constantly trying to find some support. After a little research into gross motor skill development while eating, she discovered that one of the key reasons for kids not enjoying mealtimes was because they had nowhere to rest their feet. Having foot support not only promotes good posture, but may also encourage the little ones to focus on eating.
Once Mum realised that a footrest was required to improve the situation at home, the Footsi® was born! All Footsies are made from 100% polyester. Polyester is easy to wipe down and machine washable.

- Allows for better hand to mouth coordination

The Footsi® was the first adjustable highchair footrest available and was designed in 2018 by an Aussie Mum who loved the ease of cleaning the Ikea Antilop high chair but noticed without a footrest, her daughter fidgeted and looked uncomfortable with her feet dangling down, constantly trying to find some support.
After a little research into gross motor skill development while eating, she discovered that one of the key reasons for kids not enjoying mealtimes was because they had nowhere to rest their feet. Having foot support not only promotes good posture, but allows your baby to feel comfortable and secure in their highchair which encourages the your tiny human to focus on eating.
I'm a speech pathologist with paed feeding experience and just used our Footsi, big difference! Main benefit is to use arms & hands properly, kids need trunk support and the only way they can achieve this is with a foot plate. We would struggle to eat with our feet off the floor. Thanks for a great product!
My 11mo already sits better and seems more comfy. I just wish I had one back when by 2.5yo was little! Great idea, thank you xx
Great product! We love the footsi! It was very easy to set up — I watched the videos on installation as well! They’re very helpful! Also, customer service is amazing!
The lack of footrest really bothered me about the Ikea highchair, all the feeding clinics at the hospitals use Stokke chairs for this reason. This product fixes that!
Best invention for the Ikea highchair.
My 9 month old used to constantly kick his legs up the tray. Now they comfortably rest & he can concentrate on eating.
We absolutely love our Footsi!
My son loves his footsi and I've enjoyed purchasing from your business. Looking forward to continuing to support your business where I can.
I asked what other mums use and one suggested Nibble and Rest. Now Zoey can be comfortable and I'm happy too.
I'm so glad I went ahead and bought this for my girls. They were so distracted having there feet dangling, that they would hardly touch their food. Now they're focused on their meals. The quality is amazing too!
