Question Best glue to keep your bows in one piece?

Ok so I'm really new to bow making and I'm in desperate need of your help.

Here's my problem: My 9 months old has hair that is finally starting to grow out but it's also still very thin. I put a pair of my new, cute little bows in her hair. I got many compliments while we were out. When we got home it was nap time. I layed her in her crib for her nap. When I peeped in to check on her an hour later, she was awake and playing by herself in her crib. To my horror, one of the clips came off while she was sleeping and she had one in her mouth ! The tiny bow was missing! Luckily I found it in her crib. I don't know how to keep those cute, choke hazard, little suckers to stay attached to the clips. The way I attached it to my partially lined clippie was just good ole hot glue. Apparently, it's not enough to withstand baby slobber.

Do I just need to use a different kind of glue? If so, which kind works best? Any advice anyone? I wanna keep using them but not at the risk of hurting my baby.

I'm attaching a photo in case you need a visual... Sorry it's kinda big

I use hot glue, but I also glue the middle knot of the bow, on the underside of an alligator clip.

Is that satin ribbon that your using to line your clippies? When you are doing your centers, glue it on the inside the clippies. Then this way it will also be harder to pull off for her.

DUH... I feel so dumb! LOL I don't know why I didn't think of that. I've seen it many times but I guess I just had a brain fart! I'll try that and keep you posted. Thanks ladies!

Oh and yes, I used satin to line the clips. I needed white ribbon to line the clips but satin was all I had. Is that another thing I did wrong?

Satin isn't "wrong" but grosgrain is more the norm. And IMO it helps grip in thin hair better than satin.
