so fed up of eating out watching people doing blw & leaving a huge mess all over the floor without any attempt to clean it up!

Isn't baby led weaning just finger foods? Bit of a wanky term for it but yes, people should at least make a bit of an effort its just good manners.

Baby led weaning is where baby is in control of everything that goes in it's mouth from day one of weaning. They feed themselves everything.

As in 'Baby Leads the weaning process' -not the parent. the parent never puts anything in the baby's mouth. Ever.

I always have, especially as it could cause an accident if someone slipped on the food.

So which cafes hate the most? Blw-ers who mostly clean up their (moderate) mess but pay for a full meal for each adult and leave a good tip? Or people who nurse one coffee for two hours whilst taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi?

I don't mind people stacking plates but sometimes they do it in a really illogical way. Think knife and fork precariously balanced on top of a bowl which is stacked on top of a plate. I then have to remove cutlery and bowl, so I can stack more plates on top of the first plate. What's really annoying is when I go over to a table and start stacking the plates, I am removing the little sauce pots that go out with the meal because you can't stack the plates with them still on and then people on the table start trying to help and put more sauce pots on the plates or you pick the stack up and then they plop some cutlery on top of bowl that will fall off as soon as you start walking.

I don't expect people to pick up every bit of food their DC has dropped but I think they should pick the big things up with a napkin and put them on one of the dirty plates (a whole corn on the cob, a whole chicken leg, a piece of garlic bread, a bread roll, a burger etc)
