Advantages: easy to clean
Disadvantages: uncomfortable, big, don't catch everything
When I started my daughter on solid foods, not baby rice actual food, she just loved to feed herself which meant more mess than when I would feed her and with a few of the baby foods being that bright orange colour I was worried about her clothes. Normally I put the over the head bibs on my daughter but they didn't completely cover her clothes so I realised I needed another option.
It was suggested to me that I pick up one of the Tomme Tippee Comfi-neck catch it all bib so when I was next at Tesco I decided to buy one to try. On the shelf there was a choice of two of the bibs, a pink or a blue one so I picked up the pink one. The bib is made out of a durable plastic and curves at the bottom to make a bowl effect in which to catch any food that may drop down. It is easy to put the bib onto your baby, there is a stud on the back and four holes in which you can attach it. When you look at the bib it looks as though it would be quite stiff but it is surprisingly flexible which I think is very important for a baby to wear.
When using this bib I would still put a normal bib underneath, I was so worried about my daughters clothes being spoiled with those dreadful bright orange stains and it didn't help that I almost always dressed her in white when she was small!! My daughter never seemed to be feeling comfortable when wearing this bib, it appeared as though it was weighing her down a little even though it isn't overly heavy. It always seemed to be in the way for her when she was sitting in her high chair also, she would struggle in being right up to the tray and this would result in her just pulling it off most of the time!
This bib is very easy to clean, simply wipe clean when finished with or wash it with the washing up as we always did. It is also extremely easy for a baby to remove this bib which I don't think is such a good thing.
The cost of these bibs is around £2.50 depending on where you get it from, which isn't a bad price if you find it works for you.
I don't think these bibs are all that great, I found that food still found its way onto my daughters clothes or the carpet as of course babies don't always just drop food straight down their fronts do they!?! While I agree it was good when food was dropped down the front, I don't think it is much better than a standard bib and its something I could have definately coped without and not something I would buy again should I ever have another baby.
My personal opinion is that these are quite unnecessary and just another thing for us mums to buy when not really needed!
I think I will give these bibs two out of five stars as they really aren't anything special I don't think.
Thank you for reading my review :)
