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 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.
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.
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
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.
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
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 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.
