My son hit 18 months and he decided that he no longer wants to wear a bib.
He is a big boy now; which means he has evolved past the bib. This makes for a huge mess after each meal he consumes.
But he doesn’t care. Nothing or no one with make him don a bib. My mom even tried to put a dish cloth around his neck to prevent spillage; but he ripped it off of himself hastily and continued devouring his oatmeal.
The lack of bib bothers me. It means I have to do twice as much laundry and I end up having to rinse out his clothes after every meal. But he is content to have food all over himself.
