Containing the Food Mess

My baby is starting to eat solid food, but oh what a mess. How did you cope with this?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: When we started to give our twins cereal, we got them those baby seats that clip on the side of the table, and they sat side by side. But it was a huge mess. My husband wanted to install a sloping floor that lead to a drain. But that not being too practical, he put a big plastic bin under their chairs to catch the mess.
