4 Clever Tricks for a Mess-Free Thanksgiving Day

We all know how busy Thanksgiving Day can get, especially when you are a mommy! And the last thing you want to do on a holiday is spend all of your day cleaning.

Here are some items that can help you keep your babies as mess-free as possible, not just on Thanksgiving, but any day of the year.

One of my most favorite things ever invented is the spill-proof sippy cup. And I love these adorable sippy cup options from Disney Baby, available at Walmart. This way, if your baby or toddler is anything like my KJ or Bentley, when they throw it to the ground just for fun, it won’t spill everywhere. It could actually stay sideways on the floor for an hour and be totally fine. What a help on a busy day filled with visitors and multiple things going on at once.


And don’t forget about the bib! Target has these awesome, waterproof, sleeved Disney Baby bibs by Bumkins. Whoever thought of making bibs with sleeves must be a parent. Now you won’t have to undress your baby just to feed him or her. You moms and dads know what I’m talking about.

Is it just me, or does it seem like on your busiest day, there is always a diaper that is the messiest your baby has ever had? Well, try these Snug and Dry diapers by Huggies, available at Babies”R”Us. This is a definite must if you are hoping to keep your little one as clean as possible.

And when all else fails, a good bath will clean your little one right up. Add to the fun with this super cute Nemo Bath Collection. After all, bath time is always more fun when your kiddo’s favorite friends are there to keep them warm after they wash all that food out from behind their ears.

Cheers to a very happy Thanksgiving! I hope it won’t be too messy and that you find these tips helpful. And if it does get a little messy…take pictures. :)


By the way, check out this picture of KJ from his first Thanksgiving. You can tell I was a first-time mom when I made his outfit on a WHITE bodysuit. Haha. Needless to say it lasted for the picture and that’s about it. I didn’t have a sleeved, waterproof bib for him that year.
