How it works

The makers at Bumkins have developed a bib that solely keeps parents in mind. Bibs are usually made for the child wearing the bib so that they don’t stain or ruin their clothes and they can simply have their face and mouths wiped off after they are done eating. Bumkins, however, developed a bib that is advanced so that parents have the easiest job of all when it comes to feeding their child with easy clean up. Many parents who have used the Bumkins Super Bibs sing its praises as Bumkins has taken something so simple and redesigned it to be effective and worth the purchase. The bibs come in packs that are inexpensive to buy. The Bumkins line of Super Bibs come in various styles and sizes so that your child will stay clean no matter what stage of eating they are currently experiencing.

 

The Design

The Design

The Bumkins Super Bibs Dr. Suess edition comes in three different patterns. You can get the Cat In the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, or One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Each design comes on the same style bib.

The Bumkins Bib is designed to be easy to clean and maintain. The bib fastens around your child’s neck in the back with a velcro tab. The tab gives you three inches to work with so that you can adjust the bib to whatever size you need around your child’s neck. The velcro tab also has enough room so that you can fasten it away from your baby’s skin so that it doesn’t pinch them or get caught in their hair.

The bib then hangs around your child’s neck and it covers their clothes. There is a handy pocket in the front of the bib that is designed to capture crumbs, spill, and food that misses your child’s mouth.

Bumkins bibs come in a variety of styles and colors, so when shopping for the bib you will have several options to choose from.
Safety

Safety

As always, never leave your child unattended when they are eating. Especially if your child is eating solid food for the first time. Any time a child eats there is always the risk of choking or an unknown allergic reaction to pop up. Bumkins takes safety seriously, and they have developed a bib that is chemically safe for your child.

Many parents are concerned over the materials that are used to make the products that babies use the most. Many parents know that products made out of plastic or vinyl can contain chemicals that can seep into their child’s food or any other item that your child may put in their mouth causing them to get sick. Bumkins bibs are designed to be free of a lot of the harmful chemicals that could get into your child’s body. All Bumkins bibs are BPA-free, PVC-free, vinyl-free, phthalate-free and lead-free.

Parents do not have to worry about any kinds of harmful chemicals found in plastics to seep into their child’s food especially since your child will eat off of their bibs when they spill food or drink while at the dinner table. The lack of harmful chemicals also eliminates the possibility of your child having an allergic reaction to latex or vinyl that may cause you to take a trip to the emergency room.
Waterproof Fabric

Waterproof Fabric

The biggest selling point of the Bumkins Bib is that the material is completely waterproof. The back of the bib is lined with a material that prevents stains and liquids from getting through the bib. Having a waterproof fabric helps parents out tenfold as spills will not seep through the bib onto your child’s clothes. The edges of the fabric where the piping is located is also waterproof so there is no area of this bib that can get wet. As children learn to feed themselves they tend to spill everything out of their mouths, cups, and silverware onto their bibs. With the Bumkins waterproof fabric, spills and dropped food have no power. They will simply slide off the bib and into the crumb catcher pocket located on the front of the bib.

The fabric is also super light and super thin. Because the fabric is not plastic, it has more breathability so that your child doesn’t overheat or start to feel uncomfortable while they are eating. The lightness of the fabric makes it even more comfortable for your child so that they can move easier and reach for their food and drink with fewer restrictions.
Stain and Odor Free

Stain and Odor Free

The Bumkins Super Bib is virtually stain and odor free. Most bibs are made of cloth that is either cotton based or terry cloth based. These two particular fabrics have the chemical make-up and texture to trap stains and odors. As a result, these types of bibs have to be washed over and over again and soon start to come apart and get worn out. Some odors and stains do not come out, so the bibs have to be thrown away and new bibs purchased. The Bumkins bibs are made out of a material that resists stains and odors and can be washed by simply being wiped down.

The thinness of the material that is not like cotton or terry cloth prevents stains and odors from getting trapped between multiple layers of fabric. With one thin line of fabric, there is no place for anything to get caught. The fabric is easily wiped off, so as soon as a spill happens it can be wiped off with virtually no effort and your child can resume eating and drinking.
The Pocket

The Pocket

All Bumkins Bibs come with a crumb catcher pocket in the front of the bib that has been the biggest praise by parents.

As your child eats, they will constantly spill food out of their mouths or drop food as they try and put it in their mouths. The pocket catches all of the dropped food so that it doesn’t get onto your child’s lap and stains their pants. If your child is eating cookies or fruit and something gets dropped, it will fall into the pocket where your child can reach in and grab the food out. By having the pocket catch the food, nothing gets wasted and your child can resume eating. The pocket is also great for catching all crumbs that would normally get onto the high chair or onto your child. The pocket adds yet another layer of protection to your child while they are eating sparing their clothes off any more wear and tear.

The pocket of the bib is sewn together in the center of the bib that causes the pocket to bulge out slightly so that it is always open. Parents do not have to worry about propping the pocket open or finding a way to ensure that spilled food and crumbs will be caught. The design of the pocket keeps it open at all times and ready to catch all the mess.
Cleaning the Bib

Cleaning the Bib

The greatest compliment given to the Bumkins Bib is that it is easy to clean and takes virtually no time at all to keep in good condition. The bib’s fabric prevents anything from seeping into the bib so any spills will be beaded up on the surface of the bib. When your child is done eating remove the bib and put it in the sink. Turn the pocket inside out and dump out any crumbs or fallen food so that the pocket is completely empty. Run the entire bib under warm water. If you want, fill up the pocket with a little bit of water in order to flush out any crumbs that may be caught in the corners of the pocket. Dump the water out. Take a dry cloth or paper towel and wipe off the excess water and then simply hang the bib out to dry. As soon as it is dry, you can use it again and again and clean it in the same way.

If you want, the bib can also be put into the washing machine with your clothes or other soiled baby items. When the bib is done washing, do not put it in the dryer, instead, hang it up as you would if you hand-washed the bib and let it air dry so that the heat from the clothes dryer does not damage the fabric and cause it to rip or crack.
The Velcro Tab

The Velcro Tab

The bib is fastened around your child’s neck with a velcro tab. The tab gives you a few inches of the working room so that you can ensure that the bib will fit nicely around your child’s neck without irritating their skin or getting caught in their hair. The extra wiggle room also allows the bib to hang a bit lower fully covering your child’s clothes. As your child gets older the bib will grow with them. The manufacturer recommends using this bib on children up to two and a half years old. Bumkins offers bigger bibs and sleeved bibs for older children. The velcro tab will still fit around your child’s neck as they become a toddler.

The one thing that parents need to watch out for is their child figuring out how to take the bib off themselves. Younger babies tend to pull on their bib, which causes it to be ripped off. The velcro tab of the Bumkins bib should be sturdy enough to prevent that from happening. Toddlers have the dexterity to reach around and pull the bib off by pulling on the velcro tab directly, so keep a watchful eye on your child while they are eating so that you can prevent the bib from coming off and your child’s clothes getting stained from spilled food.
Price

Price

The Bumkins Bibs are very inexpensive and several can be bought at once. Although the bib does not sustain a lot of wear and tear you can buy several patterns and colors and change them out as you see fit. Bumkins makes patterns modeled after the work of Keith Haring and the artwork from the popular books of Dr. Suess. No matter the color or pattern, the price is still affordable for any parent and can fit into the budget of anyone who is buying this product. The bibs are a great gift for baby showers or any other baby gift exchanges and they can be bought in packs of three or more and are always great to have in the diaper bag, near the high chair, or in any travel bag. For the low price that you pay for the bibs, you can have the stored and stashed anywhere.

Conclusion

The Bumkins Super Bibs - Dr. Suess Edition are fun bibs that make feeding time easy for Mom and Dad. The material does not trap stains or odors, and cleaning the bib can be done with a single wipe. All the materials of the bibs are free of any chemical poisons that can harm your child or cause an allergic reaction.
