How To Use
Babies are wriggly little things – especially when they’re hungry! We recommend setting your Tidy Tot Bib and Tray kit up first before fitting the bib to your baby. Here’s how to do it!
Carefully allow the Tidy Tot tray to pop open and place it on top of your highchair or dining table.
Use the suction cups on the underside of the tray to stick it down firmly.
Attach the bib to the front of the tray using the hook and loop fastening to eliminate the gap between baby and highchair.
Unfortunately, suction cups won’t stick to textured surfaces (just yet – we’re working on this!). They also work much better if you refresh them periodically in boiling water – take a look at our video to show you how here. If you have ANY problems at all with your suction cups do let us know and we’ll help you out – they can be pesky little things!
Suction cups on your Tidy Tot tray look misshapen, or just don’t stick well? Well here’s how to fix it!
Tidy Tot Bib: Our new and improved bibs are now fully waterproof and made from beautifully soft fabric which is easier to wash and more comfortable to wear.
Machine wash at 30 degrees. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron. Do not wash with delicate items or items that pull easily. We provide a wash strip to close the hook and loop fastening at the bottom of the bib before washing to prevent damage to other items.
Tidy Tot Tray: Wash in hot, soapy water before using for the first time and after each use. Allow to air dry and store in a dry place.
Do not machine wash. Do not place in dishwasher. Do not iron. Do not tumble dry. Some staining may occur as a result of contact with some foodstuffs but this will fade over time.
We recommend periodically refreshing the suction cups on the underside of your Tidy Tot Tray in boiling water to keep them at their best. Check out our video to show you how!
Will the Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit work with my highchair?
The Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit has been designed to work with most highchairs and booster seats available on the market, including Stokke Tripp Trapp, the Ikea Antelop and Joie Mimzy.
However, with so many different highchairs out there, there are inevitably one or two which do not work optimally with our kit.
The Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit is not compatible with the following highchairs: Baby Bjorn, Mama’s & Papa’s Bop, Keter 3 in 1, Phil & Teds Pod, Concord Spin and the Nomi Highchair.
The kit works well on highchairs which have an integrated tray and those that do not (in which case the Tidy Tot Tray is then attached to a table surface)
My highchair does not have its own tray. Can I still use the Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit?
Yes! The Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit will fit on most highchairs and booster seats, including highchairs without an integrated tray.
What is the Small Highchair Adapter for?
This handy adapter has been designed for use with smaller framed highchairs such as the Ikea Antilop. It provides extra support to prevent the Tidy Tot Tray from dropping down at the back and sides, ensuring the tray remains stable.
Can I buy extra bibs?
A lot of our customers find it useful to have one or two (or even more!) spare bibs to cover lots of messy mealtimes. You can purchase bibs individually in our shop
Will the suction cups stick to any surface?
The suction cups stick best to smooth, flat surfaces, but will not stick optimally to textured surfaces such as wood.
My suction cups are not sticking well, what can I do?
Sometimes the suction cups can become misshapen during storage and transit. If you are trying to stick your suction cups to a smooth, flat surface and find that they are not sticking well simply fully immerse the suction cups into boiling water for 30 seconds to one minute.
You will notice that any kinks or irregularities in the cup will disappear and it will return to its original round shape. Optimal suction performance should then be resumed!
How should I clean my Tidy Tot Tray?
The Tidy Tot Tray is very easy to wipe clean, but as with anything, it does stay looking it’s best after a proper wash. We recommend you fully immerse your Tidy Tot Tray in warm soapy water after every use and use a brush or cloth to clean it, paying particular attention to the hook and loop fastening strip. Allow to air dry and store in a warm dry place. Do not put in the washing machine or dishwasher or iron or tumble dry. Please note that some staining may occur as a result of contact with food stuffs but that this will fade over time.
How can I wash my Tidy Tot Bibs?
The new and improved Tidy Tot Bib is now made from a softer fabric which is easier to wash and more comfortable to wear than ever before. Simply machine wash at 30 degrees after mealtimes. Do not tumble dry or iron your bibs as this will affect the unique waterproof qualities.
We recommend using the wash strip (provided in every pack) to close the hook and loop fastening on the bottom of the bib before washing to prevent damage to other, more delicate items that may pull easily.
Is there anything I can do to get rid of the creases on my Tidy Tot Tray?
Due to time spent in storage and transit, some Tidy Tot Trays may appear creased when you first take them out of the packaging, but do not fret as we have a handy hack for you!
To restore your tray to its original, smooth splendour, simply boil a kettle without the lid on and place your tray above the steam, moving it around until the steam has been applied to all sections of the tray.
The steam will quickly iron out any creases leaving you with a beautifully smooth tray!
My Tidy Tot Tray has stained from food. How can I clean it?
We recommend cleaning your Tidy Tot Tray immediately after mealtimes to avoid staining. However, some staining from certain food stuffs can be unavoidable.
We have found that placing the tray in direct sunlight for a few hours can help to fade stains so if the stain is really bothering you then it is certainly worth a try!
What age is the Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit recommended for?
The Tidy Tot Bib has been designed with an adjustable neck fastening and elasticated sleeves to allow for a snug and comfortable fit for babies aged from 6 months to 2 years.
Lots of parents find the kit absolutely indispensable for at least the first year of their weaning journey, and beyond this for messy toddler meals and even a spot of messy play! So we’re sure you will find that you get an awful lot of use from the kit during its lifetime!
How do I fold my Tidy Tot Tray for storage?
Folding your Tidy Tot Tray is easy enough, but there is a certain knack to it so we recommend watching our YouTube video below for guidance.
We also provide clear instructions within our packaging and of course a handy travel bag to store your Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit in!
