So keeping on the “My kid now spits out chewed food and makes a mess” theme, I have been exploring ways to help contain said mess. The mat below the high chair really helps, but it can’t stop the food from covering her and the high chair itself. I decided to try some new feeding items to hopefully make things easier at mealtimes and here are my favorites!
Happy Healthy Silicone Bibs
I thought a silicone bib might help us contain the mess at home. On Amazon there were an incredible amount of choices, so I got three different kinds: A Dear ($7.47), Happy Healthy Parent ($18.97), and Sommo ($10.49). All three came in a two pack, but I wondered if the extra money spent on the Happy Healthy Parent bibs would be really worth it. It was nearly 2x the price of the others.
Features they all shared:
Easy to clean with either soap and water
Dishwasher safe (top rack)
Pocket to catch food
Cute design on the bib
Overall Winner: Happy Healthy Parent Silicone Bib
Reasons I prefer the Happy Healthy Parent Bib:
Better formed silicone: The Happy Healthy Parent bib held its shape much better than the other two.
Smelled better: All three bibs had that chemically smell, but the Happy Healthy Parent bib smelled the least, and the smell was completely gone after sticking it in the dishwasher.
Adjustable neckband: My daughter likes to dramatically rip bibs her neck, and she had the hardest time getting the Happy Healthy Silicone off.
Overall, the extra money spent was well worth the longevity and overall quality of the Happy Healthy Parent Silicone Bib.
