We don't have a baby bucket. I've never wanted or needed one. I don't typically wear my DD in restaurants because she's not a fan of being worn while seated, but she has always done fine "in arms." DH and I usually take turns holding her while the other eats. I can usually eat over her, but I'm a food klutz and she usually gets stuff all over her. We hold her at the dinner table at home every night, too, so she's used to it. I think almost every article of clothing she owns is covered in curry! I'm not allowed to drink coffee while I'm holding the baby, anymore, though -
That was bad.
