We have a whole series of hacks for snacks and recently had a question about how we manage our bibs and placemats… Are you, like that reader, looking for a bib that has great coverage, very absorbent, easy to come by??
We have the solution. Dish towel bibs. Super simple.
We are a family of six and throughout the years we have morphed away from using store bought bibs, which are good, but don’t cover legs and the velcro sticks to my nice clothes in the wash! Oy! Grab a cotton dish towel and a clothespin. Clip it around your tot and they will be covered better than you can believe!
Other perks with our bib choice:
1) We can wipe little hands and the table when they are finished eating.
2) Throw it into the wash and grab another for the next meal! No wiping off or trying to keep it for another meal.3) This isn’t “just” a bib… if your tots are creative, they might switch it around to their back. Now they are “super man”, or a “super eater”.
4) When your kids grow out of bibs you can still use these… they *are* dishtowels.
…and I love them!
