Having been fine until now (2-3 weeks ago), my 21 month old has just started refusing to wear a bib. I've bought different types of bibs, changed his high chair so he now eats at the table, tried being firm, tried pretending to be casual etc. Ultimately I want him to eat, though, which doesn't happen if he gets upset and rips it off. Any thoughts?
dd1 stopped wearing one about the same age (I'd just change her top if it was really bad, but my standards were pretty low by then!), but now (2.7)she asks to put one on if she is eating something messy.
oh I remember that phase! I used to have velcro bibs which i replaced with the ones that tie behind the neck, which just infuriated my DC more as then they could't get them off so just used to pull them so hard they almost strangled themselves, and then they learnt to undo the bows I bought some of those bibs that are like painting aprons with arms like this I got some in Sainsburys, and then also used to use the tabard ones too like this but I think I got them in our local garden centre quite reasonably! If all else fails, but on a t-shirt of jumper you don't care about and let him go for it!
