If you have a highchair with a metal "stand" or other metal parts, you can simply wipe off your bib and hang it/stick it on the high chair until the next meal. This also works for our toddler whose booster seat is on one of our dining chairs with a metal back. Very convenient, and sometimes even closer than the fridge!

This was my favourite gift at my baby shewor. The bibs are so easy to wipe clean, I never have to put any bibs through the washing machine. I have saved so much water! Cute designs too.

As someone who works in a small, family-run business in Canada (with leather products too so I can see the point of #80!), I fully support your efforts and applaud your success! Another reason for why Mally bibs? Support Canadian businesses!

Can't believe Beth an Miriam are 6months adleary! We too had been having some fun with solids. We started about 6 weeks ago, and so far the transition had been good. Some of our first tries were rice, sweet potato, butternut squash, zucchini, avocado, and spinach. I even ventured in at giving her some boiled egg yolk at my mom's insistent. Overall, Beth seemed to like everything except avocado. I guess she prefer something with more taste to it. We had not tried any other fruit yet, but I adleary have banana, apple, and peaches on our future menu. The bibs are all so adorable. My favorite will have to be Ode to Roses/Houndtooths just like the one Miriam is wearing

From Our Blog

We're retiring from shows plus, a shipping update

The title says it all, and it's true. It's time, and it feels right. After 14 seasons, we have decided it's time to wrap up the Craft Show and Christmas Market chapter in our lives and really start to enjoy the holidays. Our kids are getting older and through the years we have loved doing these shows, but the only downside it that it has also meant being away from our kids for a few weeks and for a very fast paced December served with a side of exhaustion for us all.
