FAQs

What's so good about a Messy Mealtime Smock?

Parents love the unique, all-round cover and the instant wipeability of the waterproof fabric.

Babies love the freedom to have fun with food and hone their self-feeding skills.

Both love the fast clean-up and easy transition from happy-mealtimes to happy-playtimes!

What's it made of and is it safe?

The Messy Mealtime Smock is made of Polyester with a thin Polyurethane coating on the outside.

The fabric is buttery-soft and comfortable for your baby. The thin laminate on the outside provides a wipeable, waterproof barrier while the fabric inner is soft against your baby's skin.

We are proud of our safety testing. The Messy Mealtime Smock is independently certified to be free of BPA, PVC, Azo Dyes, Lead and Phthalates. 

How many smocks do I need?

Our Messy Mealtime Smocks are wipeable for an instant clean-up and machine-washable.

Some people like to machine-wash their smocks a couple of times a week while others like to machine wash daily. 

During a machine wash, the fabric side of your smock will get wet and therefore need time to dry. We recommend using a fast spin cycle and hanging to dry inside-out.

Drying time will depend on the climate and conditions but 2+ smocks will likely help with a wash/dry rotation. 

How do I keep my Messy Mealtime Smock fresh?

We recommend:
  • A wipe with a damp cloth
  • A machine wash when needed (max 40 degrees C) with a fast spin cycle and hanging to dry inside-out in a warm position. Note: waterproof fabrics can take longer to dry than regular fabrics.
  • Avoid bleaching, tumble drying and hand washing/rinsing under a tap. 
Turmeric/curry powder can cause light staining, which usually shifts with a few soapy washes. 

    Where can I purchase a Messy Mealtime Smock?

    Note; due to increasing and unsustainable freight costs we no longer dispatch to North America or New Zealand.
