About Us- The Mess Me Not Story
Mess Me Not is a family owned business located in Melbourne, Australia. The business started when I, Stephanie, grew to dread mealtimes and the mess that came with it. As a mother of two little girls I loathed cleaning the high chair and was so tired of their beautiful clothes being ruined by stains and spills when they started their journey to solid foods. I searched high and low for bibs or smocks and better alternatives to having to scrub the highchair and soak food stained clothes three times a day but couldn't find anything that ticked all the boxes. Everything I found was either too hard to clean, was bulky and restrictive, didn't protect the clothes enough or wasn't easy to put on or take off. Then after a meal of spaghetti bolognese and staring at the orange stained high chair tray in front of me it dawned on me.. what if it just covered the high chair tray too? From there the Mess Me Not Smock was born!
The Mess Me Not Smock keeps your baby clean from the neck down, is comfortable and allows your baby to move freely, is easy to put on, catches all food otherwise dropped in laps, protects the entire highchair tray and once the meal is finished is simply taken off, left over food emptied in the bin and then the smock is thrown into the washing machine. No cleaning the high chair tray, no cleaning the high chair seat, no changing wet and soiled clothing, no soaking and scrubbing stains out of clothes. Just take the Mess Me Not Smock off, discard the food and throw it in the machine! The entire tray is covered by the smock yet the design protects bowls and plates sitting on the tray from spilling over when your baby moves. Better yet, as the smock can be cleaned so easily and thoroughly in the wash, the need for bowls and plates isn't even necessary, especially in the early days. The beauty of this smock being so light and compact is that you can also pop it in your nappy bag when leaving the house and use it when out and about to not only keep your baby’s clothing clean but protect them from germs left behind on public highchairs. This product has changed my life and makes mealtimes so much easier. I cannot wait for it to transform your mealtimes as well.
