Baby led weaning is something a lot of parents shy away from.
Baby led weaning means a lot of gagging, mess and anxiety.
I remember when I was first reading up on BLW and came across the gagging section I just brushed it off. But MAN! When I actually heard the gagging for the first time my stomach fell to the floor!
OMG WHAT DO I DO???
Thankfully, everything I had read previously was right. They coughed the melon right back up and all was good with the world.
But aside from the anxiety that the all too frequent gagging brings on with baby led weaning, there’s the mess.
Especially with TWO babies learning to eat.
Food was everywhere!
That is why I am so thankful that I have partnered with Nuby as they gifted Twins and Coffee two of their Sure Grip Miracle Mats as well as two of their (adorable) 3D Silicone Bibs to try out!
Why am I so thankful?
Because the products have made the baby led weaning process SO much easier. Clean up is seriously a breeze.
First off- the Sure Grip mats are killer.
I don’t know about you, but my kids seem to have some sort of super human strength and any “suction” cups end up thrown on the ground. But not these bad boys!
Not only are mats incredibly grippy- but they’re free of the BPA/PVC crap as well! So you can feel good about your baby eating their new foods off of it. Much better than when they eat cheerios off of the hardwood!
I also love that the mats are sectioned so I can easily separate different foods!
Then we have the 3D silicone bibs. Which HELLO?? Are they not the most adorable bibs you’ve ever seen?
Aside from the cuteness factor, they are my favorite for two reasons; the snap closure and the pocket.
The snap closure is the best because the bib actually stays on baby.
Caeden and Kendall are constantly trying to pull off their bibs while eating and most of the time they end up on the floor right along with the old suction cups! But the silicone snaps secure the bibs very well and so far- the twins haven’t been able to rip them off!
Then the bib’s pockets quickly made the bibs become a favorite once the babies were really chowing down.
I am not sure how, but nearly every piece of food dropped right into their pockets. Meaning, little to no treats for the dogs! And since we were eating watermelon and banana, I am thankful the pieces didn’t drop all over the floor. That would have been a huge sticky mess to clean up!
Now what about the one thing I love about BOTH products??
They are super easy to clean! Perfect for on the go!
All it took were some baby wipes and the silicone Nuby products were spotless! No stains, no mess.
Don’t want to waste the wipes? I get it. Us twin mommas do go through a lot of wipes!
Then stick the Sure Grip mats in the dishwasher! Yep. They are dishwasher AND microwave safe.
I have completely sold you on these products, right?? Can’t wait to get your hands on them?
Then go ahead and snag the Sure Grip mats from Walmart here, and the 3D bibs from Amazon here!

I received the above mentioned Nuby products for a review, but all opinions are my own honest opinions.

Your kids are so cute! I remember using bibs like that when my kids were younger. They’re really great for catching flyaway food
The SureGrip Mats look awesome!
We do baby led weaning too, it can definitely get messy lol.
Oh that bib sounds amazing. I swear half my 1 year olds food ends up in her high chair and these would sure help!
That is what was happening to us too! Now at least the pocket catches it all for easy clean up!
They really are! And the mess can get overwhelming lol!
Thank you! They are great for those chunks that seem to never end up in baby mouths!

I loved shopping for feeding essentials! Those grip bowls were the best. I miss the days when my kiddo wasn’t like the hulk and can now throw anything across the room!

Loved BLW with both my girls – I’ll definitely be passing this on and all the great tips to my mom friends 🙂
I hope everyone finds some great tips! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Thank you! I hope you find success in BLW!
Lol! They are for sure great for now! But I am sure one day they will end up on the floor too just like you!
