LOL!! Ok- the mess is a big issue!! We feed him in the kitchen usually so there;s lino on the floor. I found cleaning the plastic sheet i had a PITA.... so i just clean the floor... but if i;m on the carpet i lay out an old towel... not ideal..

We started in summer which is nice so he's been stripped off!!

We have these sillicon bibs with little catcher bits that are great and they can be washed in the sink- but the catcher can- well- catch stuff! I have tried using a cloth on his lap so that stuff doesn;t fall through... but i found that i have to wash it anyway and it's really gross...

Great to hear she's going so well!!

Anna - we use the long sleeved bibs from Sainsburys TU which are about 3 each, they're made of towelling type material. At lunch time I use it inside out so the plasticy backing is facing outwards so I can just wipe it after a meal, then for dinner I can turn it the right way and she is covered again. Then just either rinse it if it's not too covered, or put it in the wash, and use a different one the next day. I've got 3 of them, so used in rotation I don't have to do anymore washing than usual and always have one on hand...

Funnily enough we often use the long sleeved bibs with the silicone catcher over the top.

The catcher is good for both covering clothes and stopping the floor being so messy... i love the double bib approach!! IT does get neater though..
