Feeding time can be such a challenge with a smaller child or toddler, especially when their bib doesn't fit/work right. I have gone through so many bibs in my 10+ years of parenting, and I would have to say I have a few stipulations in regard to investing in bibs.
1) They have to be long enough to cover your child's chest.
2) They have to fit snugly around their neck (so food doesn't get in between the bib and your child's clothes/body).
3) They have to be made with materials that won't crack when washed~ I hate that!
4) They must be absorbent to liquids and not just drip down the front of the bib~ another pet peeve.
5) And, if possible, made with a pouch to catch stray food that has missed the mouth!
I was just recently able to review DaBib from Chez Shea Baby, LLC~ and I have to say that this Bib is top of the line! It meets all of my "musts" for bibs! Not only is the bib very attractive in looks, it is super functional! Keeping my toddler clean through a whole meal using DaBib, convinced me that it is quality made! The special "scrunch collar" fits any size neck (even my newborn) and keeps unwanted food mess off of your child! I love how easy this bib is to put on and take off! The strap wraps around to the front. I am not a huge fan of Velcro straps, and that would be my only recommendation to the bib~ with maybe a button. DaBib is very absorbent to and soaks up milk, juice, and water instantly - without soaking my daughter's shirt, too! The back of DaBib is waterproof, and there is a pocket in the back that flips open in the front of the bib to catch dropping food. This is a genius idea that the designer, a busy working mom, thought of. When your child is done using the bib, simply dump out the pocket, and flip it back to the back. When you wash, there won't be any left behind crumbs or stains, because the pocket's seam is on the outside! Isn't that creative and smart thinking? I love that feature! Another big bonus to DaBib, is it is non-toxic and lead free! Da Bib comes in two styles: DaHug and DaGiggles. Plus, there are a few choices of colors and patterns to chose from! For only $12.99, this bib is a great value and one to last! Right now, DaBib is offering free shipping with the purchase of three or more bibs, and 20% off your order!
