Tommee Tippee Roll 'n' Go Bib
Advantages: Easy to clean, catches food so less mess and easy to travel out and about with.
Disadvantages: Costs more than a material one but lasts for longer
At around the 6 month mark your baby will be ready to start trying solids. Up to this point you may have thought that a baby could be messy but you haven't seen anything yet! Fortunately when my little boy was born we were given quite a few bibs as presents. Great I thought they will help with the mess but the cloth ones soon became badly stained. Mango and sweet potato being the main culprits. These however were better than the one with material on the front and plastic backing which got put into our general wash which includes a drying cycle. Melted plastic anyone?
My mission was to find a bib that could cope with the mess, be cleaned and could be taken out and about. The solution for me was the Tommee Tippee explora bib.
The bib is made from soft plastic which is BPA free which makes it suitable for babies. It has a handy crumb catcher at the base which I find does a good job of catching bits that are dropped or spat out. It has three neck holes so is easy to fit your baby's neck in comfort. This is useful as some of my material bibs felt a bit tight around my baby's neck. It comes in a range of colours for fashion conscious babies and parents. My one is a nice bright turquiose which may be a bit bright for some but means I can find it easily in my changing bag. This is good if like me your bag could rival what Mary Poppins had in hers!
I would recommend this bib as it is easy to wipe clean after your baby has been experimenting spreading food everywhere. You can either wipe it clean for small amounts of mess or it my case of extreme mess warm it in warm water and washing liquid. It has survived the mango and sweet potato test. The crumb catcher manages to catch most of the food that is dropped meaning that you have less washing of clothes and floor. It has caught bits of spat out banana and quite a lot of porridge. Although made of plastic it does roll up well so doesn't take up too much space in my changing bag and is easy to find being quite bright. If it is messy after an outing I give it a quick wipe and put it i to a clean nappy bag until i can get home to wash it. I got my bib from Tesco so they are readily available and good value at around the £3.50 mark.
