I was fortunate enough recently to be offered a chance to try out something lovely by the very trendy people over at Funky Giraffe Bibs.
I never tried bandana bibs with Moo, when I saw other children in them at playgroups, I thought they looked large, awkward and stiff! This was three years ago and while their popularity as a must-have baby accessory has grown, so has the design!
Funky Giraffe bandana bibs are cute, sleekly-shaped and well-made. They're such a good size that even on my newborn, they don't look too-large for his little body (the multiple poppers make for easy re-adjusting too)! Bear has been living in his pretty much since he came home as he's such a hungry hippo and is a bit of a dribbler (no shame son, no shame) and I love them! He looks super cute in them and they whip away the dribble and that awful, watery, newborn milk sick really quickly without getting saturated (I hate hate HATE a soggy bib). The frontage is cotton and the back polyester so it absorbs the moisture really well so that baby's neck and chin don't get sore.
He's had quite a few compliments on them too, ranging from 'this is nice' to 'he looks such a dude'...which he is. The bibs are designed in such a way that they stand out without being garish and come in a huge variety of prints such as stars, stripes and little motifs, you can also get holiday themed ones!
Since I've started using the bandana bibs, I've been reluctant to use any other kind and so now I have to buy more (oh, the horror but three simply won't suffice)! Here are my pros and cons...
- Printed rather an embroidered. I HATE embroidered bibs for one very simply reason; they're useless. You cannot mop up milk, vomit, dribble or spit with a bib that has a gigantic Donald Duck stitched on it, all you do is slap your baby in the face with a very hard, course image of a cartoon character.
- Fabric-backed as opposed to plastic. See the above...plastic backed bibs are equally rubbish for mopping up fluids.
- Very attractive and stylish.
- Slim-fitting, even on a newborn.
- Adjustable to suit a wide-range of neck sizes.
- Wash very well (at 30 which is the recommended highest temperature) and dry very quickly too (my tumble dryer and I don't have a lot of contact but I know he's there if ever I'm in a jam).
- I don't have any cons for the bibs themselves, I think they're fab, however the website can be a little tricky to navigate on my tablet.
They've got some fantastic pricing on the website at the moment such as five bibs for £11 (bargain) or why not personalise your own bib (£5 each or 3 for £12).
Funky Giraffe also have a range of other products such as moccasins, burp cloths and hats.
Please note these bibs were sent to me for the purpose of review, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
