Tommee Tippee Explora Bibs have become my very favorite bib. They are plastic and nothing else – no felt backing that can get mildew on it and collect food. They aren’t nice and soft like the bibs that do have fabric on them, and I’ve found my kids have had to get used to them. Now they accept them as part of eating routine. They were too big (wide across the chest) when Grayson was 4-6 months old, though, so, I used fabric ones when he started eating solid food. They are so easy to clean and dry with just a wipe of a dishcloth. You can even throw them in the dishwasher!
You can buy a pack of two at Babies R Us for $6.99, and if you wait for the coupon in the mail, you can get 20% off. Not bad.
I also use their bowls and plates as well and have been very happy with them. The plates are two for $5.99, but are on sale this week at Babies R Us for $4.48! The plates are really neat because they are sectioned off, so you can separate food for picky eaters like mine who doesn’t like his food to mix.
The bowls have a little part that comes out off the top so the child can grab it more easily, and a lid where you can store the spoon! Smart. And they all come in fun, vibrant colors!
