“ Brand: Asda / Type: Bib „
This ten pack of bibs retails for just £3 so it seems a tad churlish to complain about the performance of what is a 30p item. However, despite the pretty rainbow trim, I can't recommend them.
What's the problem? First, with a 13cm drop and 19cm width, these bibs are fairly small - too small to contain Baby Lozsters fluids at any rate. Second, although the front is a fine textured terry towelling (65% Cotton, 35% Polyester), they have a plastic (Polyetheylene Ethylene vinyl acetate) backing. Presumably this is to protect the clothing behind the bib by stopping liquid from soaking through. However, it also has the effect of reducing the absorbency. Milk brought up seems to bounce off the bib. The backing is also very loud! The first time I used one of these bibs I actually thought it was baby Lozster's joints creaking as the backing crinkled and cracked!
On the plus side, the colours are lovely and the terry is soft and a bright white. This bib wraps around the neck to fasten at the side with what is described as a 'hook and eye' fastening. This is similar to velcro but is a lot softer. It is also neatly stitched in flush with the bib rather than being stitched on top, making it less likely to scratch on your arm or baby's neck.
These can stay in my baby drawer but will only be coming out on a rainy day when I can't get my other bibs dry!
I have found that being a first time mum comes hand in hand with a huge learning curve - there are so many baby products available and knowing what to buy and how many to buy has been a bit of a trial and error process. From experience one item that I would certainly recommend stocking up on are bibs, really I have found that you need as many bibs as possible, whether you are planning on breastfeeding or bottle feeding your baby. As well as for mopping up milk, I have also found bibs are invaluable for teething or general drool. My lovely little daughter has just started teething and with teething comes drool - who knew that it could be like a tap? I was trying to mop up her chin, cheeks, neck, clothes, etc, constantly with a muslin but I found that her clothes where still getting damp and her neck creases where getting red and sore from constantly being wet. I have found that using a bib has helped to keep her clothes drier and makes for easier mop up without having to constantly hunt for the last place I put the muslin cloth down.
The Asda bibs are a bit of a case of cheap and cheerful, but they mostly do exactly what you want from a bib. The look of the bibs is very basic, they are all white with various colour borders. However, if I am honest this hasn't been a problem for me because a plain bib will match most outfits and look unfussy. The bibs are nice, but just a little generic looking.
The Asda bibs are quite a thin piece of material and are only so so at absorbing liquid. They are fine for a bottle feed but are not all that great for leaving on my daughter for longer periods as a drool catcher because they just get sodden far too easily and they need replaced often, but then you do get ten in a packet. The bibs are of course 100 percent cotton and are lovely and soft, they also retain their shape quite well even after repeated washing. A few of mine have started staining a little but at the low price I can afford to replace them when needed.
The Asda bibs fasten with a metallic popper, which I vastly prefer to Velcro because I don't have to worry about the Velcro snagging other clothes while in the wash, which was something that I learned the hard way. As unfortunately in the past I have ruined the look of a very cute hand knitted cardigan by a rogue Velcro bib.
The bibs are relatively inexpensive compared to some other well known brands as you do get ten bibs for £3 - a complete bargain. Even despite some small complained with the Asda bibs I would buy them again in the future because they are a nice, basic and useful bib that really doesn't cost the earth.
Three out of five stars. A good if not great bib.
We were bought these bibs as a gift from the girls' Nana when our second child was due. She figured we'd be ready for some new bibs and could use them on the new baby. We started using them straight away and six months later they are still as good as new, having been through the wash a few dozen times each.
Each bib is white towelling on the front with a coloured trim and thin plastic covered back. The have a velcro fastening on one shoulder and are nice and big around the neck so easily fit our two year old. The velcro has not deteriorated since we began using these.
we use these every day and they are the perfect size for catching drips. We have had all sorts of food including tomato sauce and chocolate dribbles and none of them have caused permanent staining. I wash these in a white wash and try to remove them so they are dried on a radiator rather than the dryer and they are usually dry within minutes.
These bibs are smart and the coloured trims allows you to differentiate between the bibs so if you know you have two in your bag and you've used the blue one, you can look for the green one (I hope that makes sense, it does to me!). They are the perfect size and they wash so well, our set still looks new despite being used a lot. I think these make a great gift to any parents to be and there are enough to last for a few days before you run out. They are also highly absorbent and the plastic backs protect clothing from absorbing any liquid spills.
I believe these bibs cost just £3 for 10 which is great value for money.
These are definitely worth buying if you need some bibs. The quality is great and their performance is reliable. Our daughter can remove these by tugging them, which may be a slight downside but she is pretty good and only does this when she is finished in her high chair (then she drops it on the floor!).
My son was sick... a lot! Until he was around six months, he would bring up some of each milk feed.
I was given this pack of bibs in a hamper with some other bits like this when I left work to go on maternity leave. I wasn't too keen on them at first, and I had already bought lots of cotton bibs with cute designs on them, but thought these would be ok as spares.
Once I realised how quickly the sick was soaking through his cottony bibs and staining all his outfits, I decided to give the plastic backed bibs a go! They really were a lifesaver, and saved on so much washing!
One great feature of these bibs is the side fastening. It means if your baby falls asleep while wearing it, you can remove it (or at the least undo it) without having to move your baby's head.
They came in very handy when I started weaning my son too. They have quite a large surface area, so his clothes were protected from all those orange and green purees he was eating!
You can buy them from Asda George for £3 for a pack of 10!
I bought these bibs from Asda in the later part of my pregnancy.
These bibs come in a pack of ten for £3 which is great value. They come in a clear plastic bag with a resealable opening, so you can see all the various colours and use the bag for storing them as well, which is great because if you use them quite often they are bound to get scattered. The trims come in a few colours like blue, orange, red, green etc which is good for identifying which ones you have used.
These bibs are made of a towel like material which is 65% cotton and 35% polyester as per the packaging. They have a plastic backing made of PEV acetate which is supposedly non irritant. The hook part of the bib loops around the baby's neck and comes to lie on the side. A great feature is that it has velcro fastening at the tip, which keeps it in place. The hook part folds backwards on to the baby's shoulders so it is quite comfortable and there are no annoying bits rubbing on the neck.
The size seems perfect for my baby, he is nearly five months now. It does go pretty close to his neck, so I have never had food or milk dribbling onto his neck either. I have been using it for bottle feeds and I have also just started giving him baby cereal. It has been great, especially now that I am feeding him soft food, otherwise I might have had to change his clothes after every feed.
The thing I like best about this bib is that it is machine washable and the ones I use seem to be in excellent condition even after multiple washes, which was not something I expected considering the price. Also the plastic backing means that the wetness stays on the bib and doesn't go to the baby's clothes.
All in all I think its a great product for the price and I would definitely recommend it for an infant, although it may not be suitable for older kids.
I bought these bibs from the George section of Asda whilst doing my weekly shop when I was pregnant. I used both Asda and Tesco items with my first child and was confident buying more of their products with my second daughter.
The George trim bibs come in packs of 10 for £3 a pack which makes them 30p each which I think is brilliant value, you can buy the coloured trim pack or you can buy a pack which have a white trim. The bibs came packaged in a plastic sleeve which was see through and allowed you to see the bibs and their trim inside, you got a great range of colours including yellow, orange, yellow, a couple of blues, a couple of greens and a few more that I can't remember.
The bibs are made of a main white towelling part which is then trimmed with the colour around the edges, the bib fastens with Velcro on the side just below babies shoulder which I think is a great place as it makes it easy to undo the bib if your baby falls asleep with their feed. The bibs have a plastic backing to make sure spills and dribbles don't soak into babies clothing.
These bibs are soft and unisex which is great for people who don't know what they're having or like me started buying little things quite early on. The bibs wash well although you cannot put them through a dryer due to the plastic on the back. The bibs do become stained once you get to baby food due to most of it being orange in colour.
These bibs are great value, easy to use and are suitable from birth by the packaging however really they are not. The neck of the bib is too big for new born babies and I would say that these are suited to babies about 3 months and up as they fit better by this age. We still have a couple of these bibs left after nearly 2 years although we don't use them now it seems a shame to just put them in the bin.
I was bought these bibs when I was expecting my first child as we were trying to stock up on a few baby things but we didn't want to find out the sex of the baby so had to be careful to buy unisex items. At first I wasn't very keen on the bibs as they seemed so stiff on my newborn because of the plastic backs but as soon as she was a couple of months old and starting to drink a lot more milk (and spit a lot more out) they became very useful.
I used these bibs a lot when we began weaning as there so cheap I really didn't mind if they were stained (with orange baby food). I even took these bibs abroad with me on the basis that if they really got that dirty then I wouldn't mind throwing them away and buying replacements when we got home. Having said that these bibs are so easy to wash and come up really clean every time. My only small gripe with them is there not a very big fit around the neck which means that my daughter is now six months old and with her eating habits I would very much like her to still be wearing the bibs but she has just about out grown them.
The bibs are Velcro fastening with the fastening at the side rather than the back, they seem to stay on very well as my daughter loves to try and make it her mission to pull her bibs off but she hasn't managed to do so yet with these bibs. In summary these are great value for money although they don't look the most attractive and I just wish they did them in a bigger fit.
When I had my 20 week scan I was determined that I would still buy unisex clothes for my baby even though I knew I was having a little girl. I went to ASDA to do my weekly food shop and couldn't resist popping into the George section to look at all the baby clothes. I started off very well behaved picking up these bibs and white baby grows. However the trip was an epic failure as I ended the trip spending £56 on a bag full of pink clothes.
These bibs came in a clear plastic cover; there were 10 bibs in the pack of different colours. The bibs are white with a coloured edge. They have waterproof backs which make them perfect for catching all spills and not letting the food/drink soak threw onto the babies clothes.
At 30p a bib they are an absolute bargain. They are safe to put in the washing machine and if you add a little vanish powder to each wash the bibs maintain their nice bright white colour. My plan was to put the bibs aside after my daughter has grown out of them for my next child. But based on the price and the fact my daughter makes such a mess eating I will probably just buy a fresh pack of bibs for baby number 2.
The bibs are easy to put on the baby with minimum fuss as they do up at the side rather then the back. This means i can sneak the bib off when she fall asleep without disturbing her and it also means we don't have any upsetting moments where i may possibly catch her hair. I have found with some bibs that my daughter pulls them off as she hates them, I don't understand why she refuses to wear certain bibs but she has never made a fuss with these bibs. The material still feels soft after 6 months of use and they are all still looking in good shape.
I would recommend these bibs to any new mums and dads out there; they do exactly what they should. Easy to put on and take off baby and they are also hard wearing. At such a cheap price they are well worth the money.
I didn't know whether I was having a boy or girl before my baby daughter was born, but I needed to be prepared with some essential baby items before she arrived, and so I bought a mixture of cloth and plastic backed bibs. I wasn't particularly keen on the plastic backed bibs, as obviously the cloth ones are a lot prettier, however it was my Mum who advised me at the time to pick up a pack of plastic backs, so if I ended up with a baby that brought up a lot of milk etc then this would protect their clothes, and mean they didn't need a whole new outfit at each feed!
So, when in Asda, I noticed that they had a pack of 10 plastic bibs, for a very reasonable £3. There is great range of colours within the pack, making it perfect when you don't know in advance the sex of your baby. The colour itself is only on the fabric that goes around the edge of each bib, as the main part of each bib is white. Colours range from yellow, red, green to blue.
These bibs are made from 65% cotton, and are machine washable, which is obviously essential when the likes of milk spilling on these during a feed. These bibs are secured around a baby's neck at the side, with a 'hook and loop tape fabric' (according to the manufacturer!) which is supposed to be non scratchy and super soft. I like the fact that the fastening for these bibs is a the side, making it much easier to remove and put on, especially with a wriggly baby, or if a baby has fallen asleep and you want to remove the bib without disturbing them. I have a few bibs that fasten at the back and they are much more difficult to get on and off my daughter, plus they can catch the back of her hair. This does not happen with these bibs.
I have a baby that is an extremely messy feeder, plus she tends to bring up mouthfuls of milk during and after a feed when being winded, and so these plastic backed bibs are essential to protect her clothing underneath. I find that they bibs do absorb the milk that does come out of her mouth very well, meaning that I at least get a couple of feeds out of each bib before it has to be thrown in the washing machine. I have learnt that with then exception of dribbling, cloth bibs are of no use to my daughter, as her clothing would simply be soaking wet after each feed, and so plastic backed bibs are essential. At £3, this pack of 10 bibs from Asda is great value, the bibs wash really well without losing their absorbency or ability to fasten securely. These are the only bibs that I use with my daughter and they work great!
