We have also found most highchairs completely usless as they all slightly recline. So our little ones either sit on our lap or we use a clip on highchair. I BLW both my girls and from 6 months they were eating whatever we were from roast chickdn legs to wedges to stirfries, pasta, curries and soup. Watching a 7-8 month old eat soup is amazing and messy which is all part of the fun of food.

Kiwl Mum of three.

I didn't know most highchairs reclined a bit. I haven't used one in 8 years. We have a booster seat with a tray. Our kitchen very tightly fits a tiny table and 3 chairs. We are a family of five. None of us eat in our kitchen.

The criteria you mentioned we have always followed. From some of the comments I was thinking we must not be doing baby led solids because we do feed when we cannot afford the mess.
