Snap a bib over the park baby swing for a clean(er) teething surface

Janette's got a great playground hack:

While in the baby swings at the park, my 7 month-old (teething) daughter kept chewing on the edge of the swing. I snapped a bib over the edge and through the leg holes and she happily chewed on her bib while swinging. It moved around a little bit, but it was definitely better than the filthy black rubber. This could work for teething babies in grocery carts, too.

Great hack! I have a 10 month old. I wonder whan babies stop putting everything in their mouth!

Thanks for this great hack! My 9 mo. old is always sucking on that strap in the middle of the restaurant high chairs. I'm sure she's not the only one! Yuck!

Has anyone ever tried a floppy seat in a swing? I feel like that would work well also, but I've never tried.
