“ Brand: Superdrug / Type: Bibs „
One of the worst elements of child rearing has to be weaning the joy of puréed carrot that stains like mad and covers every surface including those that are in a different room!
I am not a stickler for routine and would often find myself out at around lunch time or invited to go back to a friends for lunch times like these I would discover no bib in the baby bag and again it isn't always possible to completely strip your child before feeding them !
My sister-in-law bought me a packet of disposable bibs to keep in the bag for emergency use and what an excellent idea these bibs are and at around £1.50 for a packet a great bargain as well.
I have found these to be very handy for emergency use but also these bibs are good quality up to the standard of protecting clothes from the vile baby food that never washes out and you then do not have a dirty bib that always manages to cover the spare clothes, nappy and everything else in goo!
I was also concerned on the impact that these bibs would have on the environment however I think these are actually better for the environment than traditional bibs as the boil wash required to clean them plus also the amount that I throw away in comparison would have caused a bigger carbon footprint.
This is a review on the Superdrug disposable bibs but you can buy these from Boots, Mothercare, Tesco and most leading baby stores be warned the price does vary as does the design but the principle remains the same a disposable bib with waterproof backing.
I would recommend these for convenience they are a great emergency backup and are reasonable priced and do an excellent job.
A cleaner quicker option giving more freedom.
My daughter has been eating "solids" for about 5 weeks now and I am in the process of gaining rather too much consumer knowledge of bibs for my own liking or sanity! I started off buying a standard pack of plastic backed tie at the neck bibs and whilst these are ok for some foods they don't seem to wash well and, becasue of the plastic, can't be tumble dried. My daughter's very favourite food is mashed banana - oh so cheap, of so convenient and oh so utterly disgusting and astonishing is the way it clings to cloth bibs even after washing. All the banana seems to be still be there, except it has been "cooked" by the washing machine and clearly visible are the banana fibres now a murky nappy contents brown - yeuch! We were getting so used to delving into the machine to haul out yet another loads of manky bibs that we just began to throw them away. My partner can usually be relied upon to find the easiest, gadget orientated way out of a problem and this is no different, it seems with his attitude towards baby-care. I was a bit shocked when he produced the super drug disposable bibs. "How wasteful!" I thought. But the joy of just throwing them away rather than wasting all that time in an elaborate ritual of washing cloth bibs before throwing them away anyway, is palpable. Although I still get a shiver of "its so wasteful" as I tear another bib off the pack I remind myself that it isn't as wasteful or expensive as throwing away a "proper" bib. The overwhelming benefit is the bibs' disposability, of course and I think that, whilst using them everyday and for all occassions might be a bit extravagant for the occasional (banana!) use, for travelling or when you're out and about and really can't face the thought of a manked up gloopy bib nestling beside your mobile in your handbag these really are the business. Although they are disposabel they
are thick enough not to leak through to your little darling's clothes - that is, they do the job of a bib adequately. I don't think that I'd recommend them for everyday use however. Peeling them off the stack can be a bit tricky (not really that bad but I usually end up with a double thickness and have to seperate them) and its a bit fiddly to attach. You tie two ends of curly paper and its quite hard to get a secure knot without feeling like you're going to garotte your baby.
I just bought my baby some disposable bibs. from Superdrug's. I was surprised at how cheap they were. A pack of 10 disposable bibs cost only £1.49. I am about to start weaning my daughter and was looking around for bibs. The cloth ones cost too much. I went to Mothercare and found that 3 bibs cost almost £3 which is quite expensive. I was actually looking for the pop over bibs but they were quite expensive and then there was also the fact that they would have to be washed after every feed. Disposable bibs are probably the easiest as you just throw them away after each feed.
