How to Clean a Messy Baby After Meal Time

Can this messy baby be cleaned?

Can this messy baby be cleaned?

Step 1: Remove tray. Otherwise, baby will use newly cleaned hands to finger-paint in leftover food.

Step 2: Clean one hand while baby digs for in his bib or lap for tasty morsels that he was “saving for later.”

Step 3: Remove bib (see Step 1).

Step 4: Quickly clean other hand before baby wipes it all over clothing.

Step 5: Clean mouth, chin and neck area. Baby will now start screaming as if you are murdering him.

Step 6: Wipe down clothing and chair while baby is distracted by his own hysterics.

Step 7: Remove baby from high chair and shake gently over the dog.

Step 8: Five minutes later, notice large area of face, hands, arms or clothing you overlooked. You may safely ignore this as long as your mother or mother-in-law is not around.

    I guess this summer we’ll just hose him down on the back deck.

    But he is so cute. Sounds like you have a good routine going. Maybe some day he will just be able to wipe his hands on the dog.

    OMG – he is so adorable. I say you contact “Yes to Carrots” immediately and demand that he become the poster child for the shower gel. 🙂

    Spot on!

    Since we have no dog, i would ad a 7a: Wipe floor in the area within 1 meter from high chair (sometimes more).

    I do like dylans suggestion also, but im not sure it would work on the floors tho.
