    We have a drop cloth (and a dog ) to contain the mess. We give her small portions of our food (like the chicken and veggies from our chicken soup, etc.). We use this high chair because we can use it as a booster at the table, too.

    That is a fantastic idea, Jen, thank you!

    And actually, I do have a dog but he just adds to the mess by frantically trampling all over the food and then tracking it throughout the apartment. Sigh.
