When your other half is pregnant you spend a lot of time looking at cute little clothes that would suit an adorable little princess or a cool little dude. What you don’t think about is what those clothes will look like covered in dribble.
Once that baby arrives and dribble starts to ooze out of their mouth, especially when teething, you become an expert on bibs. You discover preferences your pre-parenting self would never have dreamt of having. Elasticated neck or poppers? Plastic backed or fleece? Either way you’ll need lots of them.
If you haven’t realised it yet, my latest product for review is a set of bibs.
I was sent a great range of dribble bibs from mummy producer Funky Giraffe.
The review got off to a great start when they arrived. My wife had several other new mums round for tea and biscuits. The bibs arrived and they were all over them!
The first thing they noticed was the choice of designs; on the website there are a wide range from simple block colours, cool stripes and funky dots to cutesy animals and geeky chic VW campers. Usually you’re stuck with a choice of overly cute or just plain boring, so it is great to find something different. Funky Giraffe has some quite fashionable, creative designs that, as my wife said, “doesn’t ruin a carefully chosen outfit” which is really important for a 6 month old. Apparently.
The cost is a massive plus, especially for new parents. I expected them to be on the slightly pricey side in comparison to Asda and Mothercare, what with them being well designed and provided by a smaller independent company. I was wrong. Very wrong. The bibs are incredibly reasonable, with large discounts for multiple items, such as 10 for £20.50 or 5 for £11 with free postage. Great value.
Using the bibs
With the designs and the price ticking all the boxes I expected them to perform poorly when they came to doing their primary function of stopping dribble. Again, I was very wrong. Very very wrong.
Usually Amelia will soak both her bib and herself, as well as anyone happening to be around her at the time. With these bibs she can dribble to her heart’s content. The Funky Giraffe bibs got so wet they felt like they needed wringing out. Amelia’s neck and top? Bone dry thanks to the fleecy lining. Ace.
These are by far the best bibs we have come across and since getting them for review we have been telling everyone who will listen (and those who try not to) how great they are. We will definitely be buying some of these in the future for Amelia and even as gifts for other babies we know; as we found out when they arrived, the mums sure like them!
