Toddler Bib

My favorite item is one of the first I created for my own children, the toddler bib.  Meal times had become so messy because my 8 month old wouldn’t keep a bib on, or when she did, the bib was too small to catch her mess.  I created a bib that covers a toddler from waist to neck and shoulder to shoulder and now even has a snap up pocket on the front.  To conquer the issue of pulling off the bib, I fastened it with a snap at the neck.  No Velcro® to itch their neck, get stuck to everything else in the washer and then after a few washings lose its stickiness anyway! The most recent addition to the toddler bib is snaps to create a pocket on the front of the bib.  If you prefer allowing the bib to hang on the child's lap, then you don't need to use them, otherwise, they create a pouch to catch the "run-away" pieces of food.  The snaps also allow for thorough cleaning at the waste basket and again in the wash.

My 9 yr old still wears the bibs when we are having a really messy meal (shhh, don't tell her I said it or whe will never wear one again).  I love that I can use fabrics to reflect each child’s taste and interests; it makes it easier to convince them to wear a bib!
