We usually use the plastic pelican style bibs as these are the only ones I have found to contain Emmy’s mess at meal times, on recieving this item I couldn’t see how it would catch all of Emmy’s left overs so began by putting it to the ultimate test – home-made Leek and Potatoe Soup. Emmy will not let anyone help her at meal times and gets very messy however all was contained with this bib, even more so than our usual bibs as this one actually fitted around her neck due to the adjustable velco at the back meaning a lovely snug fit.
She has since tested it out with rice krispies (very messy) and lasagne with usually stains our bibs, amoungst many other foods and drinks.
As it is wipe clean a quick wipe with a cloth is usually all it takes after meals, however it can be put in the washing machine too which is great for tougher stains such as tomatoe based sauces. It has washed really well and looks as good as new and hasn’t stained which is great.
At £7.99 it may have initially seemed more than I would have paid for a bib but seeing how well it cleans up I think it is great value as I can’t see us needing another bib again.
