Let’s be honest, bibs don’t work. Sure, they’re good at slowing down the spills down the front of your kid’s cute tshirt, but at the end of every meal session you’re still having to change their pants.
Yes, there’s no apple sauce stains on the shirt, but there’s mushy peas, soggy crackers and pieces of pasta all stuck in the corners of their chair. Even if you have a bib with a pocket (we love the Kushies ones) it’s still only going to catch part of what slips off the spoon.
I’ve come up with a solution and I don’t think the product exists. If I ever had 10 minutes to sit in front of the Dragons on CBC‘s Dragon’s Den, this is what I’d pitch: The Baby Bib Spray Skirt.
Kayakers can do multiple dips and rolls without getting their hulls filled with water or soaking themselves because of the spray skirts they wear that forms a tight spill proof seal between their chest and their boat. The skirt wraps around the lip of their pod and seals them in tight.
My wife and I have had discussions about how exactly The Baby Bib Spray Skirt would work, considering the many designs and dimensions of high chairs on the market. While we haven’t quite figured out how it would work, we maintain the idea is a brilliant way stop the spread of bits and pieces from finding their way into the nooks and crannies of the high chair seat.
That’s our million dollar idea, but we don’t know what the next step should be. Do you know if this product exists? How can I sell it to someone to make my millions? What great invention idea are you sitting on?
