I highly recommend you invest in a large size high chair mat. As babies learn to feed themselves, it can get very messy. According to Occupational Therapist, Tammy Bishop, it is important for a child to get messy during a meal.
A baby experiences food visually, through touch, smell, and taste. Your child is experiencing food by wearing it on his arms and forehead.
Tip: don’t wipe your baby’s face or hands until after the meal is done. Allow your child to experience their food.
We created a Top Picks for most feeding products such as high chairs, bowls, plates, spoons, and baby food cooking supplies after unfortunately I bought a lot of the wrong feeding supplies. I don’t want you to make the same mistakes I did.
