Mealtime for a child is a time to try new foods, explore how things work and refine new motor skills. Children go through many phases when it comes to learning how to eat. In the initial stages of life, they are solely fed by their parents or caregiver. Around 8-9 months, babies begin to take a more active role in the eating process. It They slowly develop the fine motor skills (i.e. pinching and grasping) that is required to pick up finger foods by themselves. Around 18 months, the baby has refined their motor skills and is able to use an utensil to feed themselves. DD2 is trying to tackle the skill third skill and although she is successful, it is a very messy process.
No matter what stage your child is at, they are bound to wear some (if not all) of their food. This messy stage can lead to stains, stickiness and ruined clothing. The combination of not being able to stand my children walking around with stains on their beautiful clothing and my hate for laundry, as led me to find the Ultimate bib for mealtime.
The Bibbitec Ultimate Bib is first and last bib you will ever own. This bib is perfect for the beginning stages of feeding (18 months) and lasts up until 5 years old. With 17 inch by 28 inch coverage, you can allow your children to explore at the dinner table with out worrying about staining their clothing. It is designed to cover baby from neck to lap without the hassle of snaps, velcro or ties. Simply slide the 9 in neck hole over the head and insert the arms and baby is ready for dinner! It wipes clean instantly and is machine washable. The lightweight breathable fabric is made from a polyester and nylon blend so it perfect for every season. Retailing at $25.99 it is a staple that every toddler must own.
The first thing I noticed about the Bibbitec Ultimate Bib was it’s simplicity. I love that was easy to put on and there was no struggle getting it on my DD2. She loved that she could put the bib on herself and is proud of this new found independence. I like that once the bib is on, it stays on. No snaps or velcro for DD2 to pull out or to accidentally come lose, instead we are ensure a secure fit. The fabric is a nice texture and wipes clean with soap and water. I love that at the end of the week I can throw it the washer with the rest of my laundry to freshen it up and not have to worry about it cracking or deteriorating like other plastic bibs. The coverage is amazing. Not only does it protect DD2’s shirt from stains, but it also catches the noodles and cereal bits that miss her mouth and end up on her lap!
DD2 loves this bib, her clothes stay clean, and I’m one happy mom!
