Bibs. Either you like them or you don’t. Allow me to share three good reasons why I think kids should wear bibs for all messy activities.
Foods like peaches, apples, and chocolate can permanently stain fabrics. The best way to prevent these and other foods from landing on your kid’s clothing is to use a bib that covers all or most of his shirt. Granted, it can take a few seconds to tie a bib on your hungry little one, but it can take minutes to treat stains before laundering clothing. It can take hours to work long enough to buy new clothes to replace the ones that are ruined by food stains.
Bibs keep your kids comfortable.
Soggy clothing is not comfortable! Would you want to spend the afternoon wearing a wet, sticky shirt? I know I wouldn’t want to, but I’ve seen plenty of kids walking around with shirts that are soaked with drool or milk or juice or food. Yuck!
Save your kid the aggravation of a soggy shirt by tying a bib on her before she starts to eat or drink.
Bibs are cute!
Bibs come in all shapes and sizes with all kinds of pictures and cute sayings on them. Some bibs, like the ones I sell in my Etsy shop, are cute enough to be considered clothing.
If you’ve got young children or grandchildren, I urge you to make a habit of tying on a bib at mealtimes. You’ll be surprised how much better your child will look and feel with clothes that are clean and dry! You’ll feel better, too!
