I did a mix of spoon and finger feeding both boys. Both got to a point they preferred self feeding so I just went with it. I do pre loaded spoons sometimes but C really prefers his hands. We eat things like chilli and curry often. I put a dessert spoons worth on his tray at a time. I use decent bibs abs will take his sweater etc off. Yes loads goes on the floor but it's now built into the kids expectations that they have to stay in their seat while I sweep quickly. I keep cheap flannels in the kitchen to clean them up with. Honestly we have laminate abd it takes minutes to clean up.
