We’ve been checking out the Tidy Tot recently, what an interesting product to be trying out.
We all hate the mess don’t we? The mess that is created when weaning a baby. Asher is currently in that stage, so this product couldn’t have come at a better time for us.
Arriving in a small package from our lovely post lady, we couldn’t wait to give it a go.
I love the green colour (I’m obsessed with Green, so this worked well for me), so bright and cheerful for Asher too!
The Tidy Tot was very easy to put together, it just kind of flipped open ready to insert onto Asher’s highchair, attaching by small suction cups to make sure that it didn’t move about – what a great idea rather than it being able to spin around.
Once the Tray is attached to the high tray the bib is then put on the baby, it was a lovely size bib with long sleeves and a Velcro attachment that attached to the tray meaning that absolutely no escapee food would be able to get onto any clothes, a miracle! Not only that, food doesn’t disappear down the side of the highchair and get squashed between baby’s legs or against the highchair anymore, meaning more food is eaten!
I love the design on the bib with the clouds and rainbows, so pretty and Asher kept trying to play with the clouds whilst he was waiting for his food, very cute 💕.
As you can see in the photo below, the tray is huge. It’s great for Asher to be able to have all this room as he likes to play around with the cutlery and dishes and having all this extra room means that if he flips the bowl over at any point, the food isn’t going to get all over the carpet as the tray just catches it. Fabulous idea.
The tray and the bib does have to be cleaned after every use but I’ve found that I’m changing Asher’s clothes less as his food doesn’t end up all over him – it’s much easier wiping down the tray and putting the bib in the wash than cleaning Asher every time that he eats something. I think it would be a good idea to purchase a spare bib as that would mean that one could be in the wash whilst you use the spare one – we will certainly be buying a spare one.
The bibs are made of a very soft fabric and are fully waterproof and wipeable, I’m not actually sure how that works but it does.
Asher is loving his new found freedom of being able to mess around with spoons full of food without daddy stressing over the mess, he’s not a fan of the messy weaning process but this is making it a little easier on him 😀.
I would definitely recommend purchasing the Tidy Tot if you want a little bit of help in keeping everything a little bit cleaner during the weaning process or when you are having messy play time! The Tidy Tot also comes with a handy little bag that it all folds back into for you to take on your travels and a perfectly easy storage solution.
I’m sure that Asher will make good use out of all this extra space as he makes his way through all the amazing foods just waiting for him to explore.
Suitable from age 6 months to 2 years.
