My 21 month old wears a 3t already (she's giant) so we bought her the preschool size bapron and no regrets! It covers her chest, sides and lap completely so any food that falls just lands on the floor and not her pants, shirt or shoes. Yes, food still falls because there's no pocket but we found even with the pocketed bibs she'd manage to get food on the floor. This way at least her clothes are covered fully and I can always sweep the floor. I love how it fits around her chest and ties behind her back and not her neck and she enjoys putting it on. It's super easy to clean in the sink with some soap and water and cleans up great in the washing machine, as well. 10/10 highly recommend!
