i have been feeding solids for about a month & i also only have 1 high chair. i've been experimenting on the best way to do this & for now, in the morning i sit them side by side in their bouncy chairs & start with a bit of formula or BM, then give about 4 spoonfuls to one baby & then 4 spoonfuls to the other. if one says he needs a minute, i'll try to get more into the other in that time until i go back to the first one again. i find that after about the 4 spoonfulls they are ready for a pause, so for me, it's a chance to get to the other one.

in the evening, i try to switch them off day-by-day one gets the highchair & one gets the bouncy chair. the highchair is good because of the tray & i can put cheerios or rice puffs on it & they can grab at them, sippy cup too.
come to think of it, i might start doing one in the hichair in the morning & the other in it at night...

Do you have two walkers? that is how I fed mine, and I just went one for one. By the time you have given the 2nd one a spoonful the first is ready again. That was the easiest way for me...

When it was just me feeding my girls I would take turns, one bite for M then one bite for G and so on...fortunately I had two high chairs though. If they are both able to sit up on their own you could try spreading a cheap table cloth on the floor, put them on the table cloth and feed them together that way until you are able to get a second high chair (keep the table cloth under the chairs though!).

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

We have 3 the same age, and for things they're unable to feed themselves we still do this - hold one on our lap, feed them through their meal, and go to the next. They each get individual time with a parent that way, and the others learn to take turns. Sometimes the others are unhappy about it, but they do know they will get just as much food and attention when it's their turn.
