Perfect Size For Little Necks
A bib needs to fit properly so that food doesn't go in places that you don't want it to. The neck is an especially vulnerable area for food to catch if a bib doesn't fit tight enough. The Bumkins Waterproof Starter Bib 2 Pack had good reviews for fit. Here is one of those comments,
"We had the regular size for our daughter and used 4 bibs for 2 years without any tears. They have been slightly stained by food, that's just what happens naturally (carrots grrr). So we got these tiny ones for our 6 month old and they are perfect bc they're small enough to fit tightly around the neck and doesn't have excess material to bunch up around feeding table."
Velcro Closure Is Easy For Baby To Take Off
There were mixed reviews for the velcro neck closure. Here is one of the concerns left by a customer,
"The only thing I don't like about these bibs is the velcro closure. It's ridiculously easy for a little baby to yank it off. I like these bibs enough though that if the velcro continues to be a problem I'm going to sew snap closures on them myself."
Waterproof Is a Hit With Parents
Let's face it, if you have a baby, you will be doing a lot of laundry. Cloth bibs will need laundered after every use. Most parents like that these bibs don't retain water, but instead can be easily washed off. Here is one of the comments,
"I wish I heard about these sooner! I was washing cloth bibs non-stop until a friend recommended these waterproof ones to me! They are great because they fit my 6 month old until she was 9 months old and then we upgraded to the next size! They did an awesome job at protecting her clothing, and mostly catching all the food she dropped by accident in the pocket. When she finished, we would just wash it off with soapy water in the sink and it would be dry and ready for the next meal. Saves moms money and time because you really only need one or two if you want a back up. The top part did stain a little bit after lots of use, but can be thrown through the laundry."
Pockets Catch Dropped Food
The pockets on these bibs do well with catching food that babies drop. A parent explains,
"They did an awesome job at protecting her clothing, and mostly catching all the food she dropped by accident in the pocket."
