Our Story

My name is Maclean and I am a father of 3 young boys from Surrey BC, Canada. TidyBaby was born out of my own experience as a parent. My middle son was learning to feed himself and one day he was eating one of his favorite meals—oatmeal. A 14-month-old teaching himself to eat oatmeal is likely one of the messiest challenges a parent can face. 

If you have kids you know it's important to let them learn to feed themselves (and you know kids can be stubborn about doing things themselves as they learn). 

My son was wearing a regular bib but nothing we had (or anything I could find on the market) really, actually, worked and stopped the food from getting all over his clothes, the chair, and the floor. So I duct taped the bottom edge of his bib up onto the tray of the highchair. It worked great—it created a barrier that kept all the food from falling down below onto his lap. TidyBaby was born!

Me and my boys, the youngest is always the craziest!

Since the early days the TidyBaby bib has grown and evolved. In 2022 we launched the TidyBaby Pro!  An all new, completely waterproof and stain resistant version that easily wipes clean between meals.  Our customers have always loved the time saving, mess stopping greatness of our bibs.  We asked for feedback to make them even better and the number one suggestion was always "please make a wipe clean version".  So that's what we did!

Baby led weaning is a relatively new term but the developmental process of a child learning to feed themself is as old as human history.  This is a crucial step in baby’s development where they learn; hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, texture recognition, hot and cold, self regulation and even proper nutritional preference. 
Our bibs make this messy process so much easier for busy parents that now there’s no excuse to skip it.
