    Questions in the title really...

    Finn seems to be a real messy baby at mealtimes and bibs just don't cut it (even the full on cover you up bibs)! We're on at least 2-3 changes per day, tops and bottoms!

    What about you lot? Xxx

    at the most 2 changes. i refuse to change dex more than that (unless his nappy has leaked or if hes been sick, both rarely happen). our washing pile is already massive, i just couldnt cope with 3 changes a day lol. dex gets his tea at about 6.30pm. and goes to bed at 8.30pm. so if he gets mucky while eating his dinner then i either change him into his jammies or let him have some naked time cause he loves that! xxx

    We're on about 2 a day here. T is awfully messy with food and will get it under her bum in the high chair and then kind of grinds it in. It's a nightmare, as are all her stained clothes. She hardly ever wears anything nice because I don't want her to eat in it, and she is ALWAYS eating! xxx

    I always give A her breakfast in her jammies, even though she doesn't have it until after her first nap so I just don't get her dressed until late morning! Then I try to give her something for lunch which isn't too messy (if that's possible!) so stuff that doesn't mush right into her clothes - but if I need to change her then, then I do. Then if dinner is really messy I will strip her naked for it and then she goes straight in the bath after! So tends to only be 2 outfits a day max unless she leaks her nappy! I really need to get some of those coverall bibs and see if they make any difference to mess!xx

    On a good day - 2 changes - 1 after his breakfast bottle out of bedtime clothes and 1 last thing at night, into bedtime clothes.

    On a bad day, with exploding poo (!) - at least 3, maybe 4 lol :shock: xx

    I keep B in his PJs for breakfast, generally have to change him after lunch if its a messy one and after dinner I just strip him ready for his bath. We also have a dressing gown which is handy for after brekkies or dinner.

    Pretty much every time he eats so we're at 3-4 changes per day!

    Sometimes I have to change him out of his decent clothes into crappy ones if we're having something super messy and then back into something else!

    I am another one that leaves bub in his PJ's until after breakkie, unless it's a super messy breakkie (aren't they all??)

    I'm gonna start doing this! Although all of his clothes are turning into shit ones cos of the food stains! If I'm quick I get them off and soak them in stain remover! I often find big lumps of food a the front of my washer when the cycle finishes!!!xx

    I have some 3-6 month PJ's which I just pop on him for half hour whilst he's eating (they are short on him but not too tight iykwim)

    Also I may buy a cheap bundle from Ebay when he needs the next size and after a wash they'll be his crappy clothes

    I know you weren't asking me, but I don't iron anything!! Ever!! Never in a million years would I iron something my messy almost 8 month old is going to wear !!

    My SIL irons all her kids clothes though (2 years and 7 months) and her bedsheets... maybe she has more time in her day than I do...

    I've tried not to i really have, but I can't not! some women are fantastic at getting clothes washed and dried and they don't need ironing but not me. All the clothes I wash look like they've been shoved in a bag for 6 months so I HAVE to iron! x

    Just pjs at night and one set of clothes in the day here! She has breakfast in her pjs and at lunch I sort of cover her in muslins and bibs haha
    Dinner time is just before her bath so she eats with just her nappy on and then gets immediately dunked! :)

    I find without clothes on though the mess get everywhere. I've found uneaten pasta in his nappy???

    I take Harry's trousers off every time he eats, then he gets a full body bib with long sleeves and if there's going to be any big chunks, he gets a pelican bib too so that helps keep him mostly clean. The dribble on the other hand, well he dribbles so much that I have to change his dribble bibs about 4 times a day and his t shirt 2-3 times a day due to dribble alone! xxx
