Of course, as a house with children, I have a slew of baby bibs. Snap close, velcro close, a pocket to catch food, cloth, plastic – you name it. BUT, the minute my babies (and yours, too, I’m sure) turned about 10 months old they began to rip them off. Not only that but they would slide around and no matter what, food would find its way onto their clothes. Always.
After dressing Paityn in oversized t-shirts that used to belong to Brady while she wasn’t feeling well (she just looked so comfy in them) I realized something. Why don’t I put one on her every time she eats? Wouldn’t that be SO much easier than fighting her to wear a bib?
Take your older children’s (or family member hand-me-downs) and keep a stack of them folded in a kitchen drawer or the pantry. Throw them in with your regular laundry for washing when you’re done!
