My little guy is quite the eater; he loves to try new foods. However he doesn’t limit his culinary exploration to just tasting, he also takes every opportunity to stick his hands into his food. (Much to my dismay!) If food is haphazardly laden onto his spoon, allowing for a bit to drop on his tray, before mommy has even a chance to blink, plop goes his hand into the new-found texture.

His culinary exploration often meant having to hose him down after every meal, and then dealing with the piles of laundry.  Thus I set out on a mission to figure out a way to protect his clothing and my valuable time, while still allowing him to savor his food, even with his  little fingers. 😉

The Solution: Bumkins Waterproof Sleeved Bib.

This bib is awesome! It is nice and large, ties at the neck, and the sleeves have elastic, so nothing gets past it.  It is made of a nylon material, thus it washes and dries easily.  I usually hand wash it in the sink after meals, and  then hang it to dry. It dries within minutes.  The icing on the cake is that it comes in many fun patterns.

20121217_142859Keep in mind that this bib is geared toward babies between the ages of 6 months and up, thus it may not be appropriate for smaller infants who can also create tiny messes.  We can recommend Kushies Waterproof Bib with Sleeves for smaller babies. It is very similar, however it runs smaller in size and does not have the elastic sleeves.

Until Next Time,
