Highchair Drama!!

Weston does not seem to like his highchair at all. After about 5 minutes or less he gets fussy and that usually escalates pretty quickly into full on screaming. I don't think it is the food part of it that is bothering him. I have been giving him cereals and homemade purees for almost a month now and he usually seems to enjoy them. He opens his mouth and leans toward the spoon so I don't think thats the issue. I have tried giving him toys to distract him of

How upright is your high chair?

You mentioned that your older child acts up (?) at mealtimes. Any chance that JB is taking cues from his sibling?

Have you tried him in the high chair earlier in the day (morning or noon)? Is is the same reaction? Or maybe putting him in it when he's not hungry and just giving him some toys to focus on, maybe get him used to being in the chair?
