There's no great answer. Either you have to wash them after every single use, or they get a weird sour smell after wiping them down every day, or the velcro starts to wear out after two weeks. You can't win.
I have a bib drawer...and it's FULL of bibs of all varieties. I never use any of them, because the maintenance is more trouble than the mess itself! Until BapronBaby.
BapronBaby was started by a gal I went to high school with, and I got in touch with her when she started posting about her great new product! I was intrigued. It doesn't stain, it dries quickly, you can run it through the washing machine...all the best of the bib worlds. :)
So far it's lived up to its hype. Hazel reaches out to have it put on before mealtime and it fits her comfortably and covers her clothes completely--right over her shoulders! Even when she turns her head quickly to look at her big sister or brother mid-spoonful, her messy chin doesn't leave a streak on the neck of her clothes.
Bonus points? BapronBaby has the cutest prints. I mean...how adorable is the Aztec style? She also has dinosaurs, flowers, sports-themed, and many more! If you are a mom facing the same bib dilemma I've been fighting for years, it's time to upgrade!
