Bringing fun and style to baby bibs
My son is currently 9 months old and over the last few months he has been popping out teeth at a remarkably fast pace. He is currently working on his eighth one and recently the dribble that has become a permanent fixture to his face has been relentless and more difficult to contain. We were in need of some bibs that would be robust enough to protect his clothing but also be fun and stylish.
Over time we have had a number of bibs and bandana bibs from a wide range of companies and as some have been great others have not lasted well at all. I started my research on the web and I was recommended Beauty and the Bib by An Essex Wife who had highly rated them. I had a quick look on their website www.beautyandthebib.com and instantly I knew this was going to be a company that I would like. Their website was professional, bright, fun, easy to navigate and had a number of bibs that I loved the look of.
Before I took my research any further I was approached by Beauty and the Bib to write a review for them which I was excited about and my Wife even more so, once she realised we were being sent two of their amazing bibs. The two bibs that we were sent were a navy star shaped Pirate bib and a blue bee jersey bandana bib both of which I had highlighted as my favourites when I first visited their site.
The first thing I noticed when removing the bibs from the well protected packaging was that they came in their own ribbon tied organza gift bag which looked great and was an unexpected nice touch. This may be something that you wouldn’t be too bothered with but if you are buying one of their bibs as a present it makes a lovely touch and is reflective of the quality of their service.
The quality of both bibs is fantastic as they are made with a good thickness of material that looks as though it could soak up a tsunami of dribble. The image design on each bib is embroidered and not printed so there is no chance of the image disappearing, which had happened on some of our more value bibs. The fastening of the bib is made from Velcro rather than poppers which nicely allows for various neck sizes. At first I thought my son would be able to easily remove the bib as it was Velcro but this wasn’t the case as the quality of the Velcro ensures that the bib isn’t going anywhere.
My personal favourite of the two bibs was the star shaped pirate one as my son and I often play a pirate game that involves me being ‘Peg Leg Pirate Daddy’ and him being ‘Captain Rocco’. It doesn’t need to be pointed out that this game is more for me than him and that he probably couldn’t care less. Anyway, the bib makes a fantastic addition to our other props, which includes a wrapping paper tube telescope that I use to spot any inbound scallywags!
Both the Pirate bib and the blue Bee bandana bib are priced at £8 each which is towards the higher end price bracket but once you receive your bib[s] and experience the quality first-hand the price becomes easily justified. Personally I wouldn’t use these bibs for messy meal times but instead as a practical fashion accessory that both compliments an outfit and protects it at the same time.
Thanks again to Beauty and the Bib for the two brilliant bibs and if you get a spare minute please do check out their website as I am sure you will be equally as impressed as I was and they don’t just do bibs either.
