My son tends to be a bit messy when i feed him solids. I guess all babies are prob pretty messy, but I'm thinking since we do not have a highchair for him (will be getting one in a couple weeks) that maybe that is a big part of the problem. I currently have to feed him in his bouncy chair which only has a small restraint strap which really doesn't do much good because he likes to move forward a lot and won't sit back and sit still. He also likes to grab his feet and try to suck on them and he just moves around way too much and he usually ends up getting his bib, or clothes, or the chair fabric or all of the above dirty/stained every time!!! I'm seriously thinking about stopping giving him solids until we get the highchair. It makes me so angry every time he makes a mess and stains his clothes or whatever else because he likes to drool all the time and of course some of the food comes out with the drool! Why does he have to be so messy??? Will it get better once we get the highchair??
