    kids go BONKERS for those. Legitimately the only way I can get 60% of my patients to work.

    Well sure. Kids love having Vince Carter-level hops. You know, proportionately. :lol:

    Okay party people—talk to me about double strollers. I told myself no way, kids are 3 years apart, no reason for it. Well now stroller walks are our lifeline. E loves riding in her stroller still at 2.5. I don’t think she will be strong enough to walk the whole walk by then and we don’t want to end up carrying her. When baby is itty I’m going to wear him but I don’t think I can do it for long walks as he gets bigger. Also, when I’m alone with both kids I’m thinking I will feel more comfortable if they’re locked into something.

    My friend suggested a wagon/stroller combo like this but I’m not sure.

    Anyone buy a traditional double or wagon and never use it OR get way more use than they expected?

    Is this the kind of thing I should just wait until after he’s born and see what E is like by then?

    How do these kids wear bibs properly? My kid slouches and any bib we try bunches up right at his chin.

    Not sure if the Baprons would help. They don't tie around the neck so that might help keep it down. They're also pretty long. A's sit down over her lap so that could maybe help?

    No bib can stop him from sticking food in his hair. :lol:

    Most of Fry’s pictures from his first few months of solids are of him just in a diaper. He’d eat so much and it was so messy that bibs and clothing were really just reserved for eating in public. After mealtime we’d rinse off baby, hose off booster if it was really bad. I assume we’ll do the same for Blobby (working title), but those baprons look awesome for eating out.

    We’re just going to eat on the floor for the near future. It’s where all the food ends up anyway.

    A recommendation for one of those silicone baby plates with a massive suction part that keeps child and adult from pulling it off the table, please?

    EzPz Happy Mat. A can still get the smaller one off, but it's not as easy as before. She doesn't really try with the bigger one but it sticks pretty well.

    We love ours! The big one is truly big, but I think you have the Joovy Nook highchair? So it'll fit fine.

    @MagnificentCat we also have the ezpz, I have the happy mat and the bowl one, the mini/smaller versions, and like them a lot. I’m not sure if it sticks super duper well like if he’s really determined he could probably lift it but maybe not, we used them at an older age. I used to loveeeee them for travel when we would eat in restaurants and the minis fit in a big ziplock and clean up well.

    C can lift his ezpz mat easily, but our table wood with a lot of variation/grain so not completely flat and smooth for it to stick to. It's still better for him than plates have been so far, they get sent flying immediately.

    I love the ezpz. We had a glass top table and it stuck really good. Even if it doesn’t suck on, it’s big and awkward for a kid to pick up and toss.

    Ever have days when you feel like you bought all the wrong products for your kid? Like not devastatingly so, but just “ugh, this isn’t working as well as it should, why didn’t I know to buy this other thing a year ago?”

    High chair regret here too because it's a bitch to clean. Are you buying a new one @MagnificentCat ?

    Also why did I buy a baby carrier to use it all of a handful of times?!

    fucking this. I would’ve burned it if I didn’t return it for diaper money.
