Can't believe so many of us have / had the poang. I'm surprised Ikea don't market it as a feeding chair more!
I would have bought the leather one if they were available then. But the fabric one we have has been washed many times and still looks great regardless.

We bought a cheap rocker with arms, it was great for both bf and formula feeding.
I sat in one of those gliders when pregnant and the motion made me want to throw up, lucky we didn’t get one since I spent most of my oldest child’s first year pregnant with my second...

I fed in bed or ok the couch when they were tiny and also have the IKEA Poang, which worked really well. Cheap, comfy, and still in use 5 years later. It’s also quite a big seat, I can sit on it next to my 5 year old which he likes.

I had that exact chair OP and I loved it! It did stain...but I just put a blanket over it (permanently)!

Thanks all for the feedback - I really do love the PB one and it is the most comfortable one I've sat in plus it wouldn't just be for feeding, would use for settling / stories etc and keep for many years past babies but I am still finding it very hard to justify the cost. Thanks for the advice on the poang - I know lots of people who have and love this style but I prefer the look and feel of a more plush chair.
Sigh, back to the drawing board unless PB significantly reduce the price!

I have a Valco Relax glider. My kids are 10 & 12!
I got it second hand off eBay, I’ve tried to get rid of it a few times but can never bring myself to do it.
It’s totally trashed but still everyone’s favourite chair and now lives outside where I hose it down in summer and lie on it to cool down.
