Brunch with Messy Little Thing!

Today has been a very exciting day for little man and me, as we were invited along to have brunch with Messy Little Thing!! 

We traveled up to Fratello’s in Jesmond, Newcastle for a meal, and to test out Messy Little Thing’s full body bib. Messy Little Thing was launched by Dawn-Elizabeth Howe, after trying out so many bibs to keep her daughter clean when she was weaning, and not finding any that suited her needs or had the right material, Dawn decided to bring out the sewing machine and make one for herself! Along came Messy Little Thing.

As Dawn’s daughter has grown, so has the collection of bibs, which suits children from ages six months to five years, and include’s a Messy Mat made from the same easy washable material. The simplicity of these products makes them all the more worth it, from the way they cover kneck down to wrists and feet, completely covering your child’s clothes, to the water repellent material making it very easy to clean.

M had a great time running around the restaurant and playing, and the bib did not get in the way at all, he didn’t even seem to notice it! And for the first time since weaning him at 4 months old, we did not have to change his outfit once the dinner was done. M loves messy food, he will eat more than his fair share of pasta and sauce, so you can imagine the mess on his hands, face, hair, and clothes, not to mention my carpets in the new house! With the Messy Mat and the Long-Sleeved Weaning Bib (suitable from 6 months), I can finally start to worry less about food going everywhere and explore some very messy food with M, and the bib can be re-used for E when she comes too!! Today M ate chicken strips, peas, and broccoli, and shared some of my Fratello’s Pasta too. He did really well drinking out of a glass too, and his top stayed dry and clean the whole time.

You can find more information and grab your own bib here. With 6 different types to choose from, all for various age range, you will certainly find the right one for your little one.

  9. What a fab idea! I could have done with these when mine were small, the amount of clothes we had to throw away because a regular bib just didn’t cut it!
