My Soap Box

I believe it is a conspiracy.

I have a 10 month old infant who happens to require a bib while he eats. Now, I am all for technological advancement, although I have to say some of it does scare me, but are there no bibs that still snap instead of velcro?

I'm talking about a good old fashioned metal snap. Not those new plastic wannabe snaps. I have gone through what I think is every bib out there that I can get locally. If it has velcro then my son can pull it off. If it has a tie he will pull it off. If it has those plastic snaps then he will pull it off. I have even tried to use a kitchen towel clipped together with a clothespin. No. To him that is pure enjoyment. He pulls it off and then has the clothespin to play with. Until he pinches himself with it then its not fun anymore.

How is velcro actually faster then a snap anyway? After velcro is used for awhile it isn't as secure anymore because it usually gets covered in random strings and dryer lint. Not to mention the fact that when you wash and dry them they become one big tangled mess since they all stick to each other!

Anyone out there have any big ideas for me? Names, Places, websites? And don't forget I'm frugal.

I am in total agreement with you. I was lucky enough to find snap bibs at WalMart last year for my now 19 month old. I am not sure if they still carry them, but that is where I was able to purchase them.

Will he take off the ones that you pull over his head? The ones that don't snap, velcro or anything else? I say just take his shirt off and give him a good scrubbin' after he's done eating! :)
