    When you mean the baby eats by themselves, so far that has been a messy experience for us as everything ends up under her bum and sticking to her clothes somehow. What kind of food do you give??
    Yes it's very messy in the beginning! From 6-12 months was the worst now at 18 months hardly any mess and he eats with a spoon and fork and kids chop sticks!
    As pp said we had full arm plastic bibs, plus those plastic bibs that have a lip on them that catch food! And put a plastic mat under his highchair and just put all his food on his tray - spagetti, curry, rice, fish, veggies everything we ate, he did with his fingers and hands , we gave him loaded spoons of yogurt and porridge

    when we went out to cafes or restaurants I would stick with ordering him toasted tuna and avocado sandwiches or just steamed veggies in the beginning as they made the least amount of mess and just would put small portions of what I was eating on his tray to minimize mess!

    I give all of the food that I mentioned already. DS gets very messy and isn't keen on bibs so I just put him in his highchair in his nappy and rinse him in the kitchen sink afterwards. As they get the hang of it you will see more food going in and less on the floor/walls/in their hair...

    The high chair is standing on our old shower curtain to save the carpet too.
