baby product review: tommee tippee = best bib ever

If you've read many of the posts about my almost-2-year-old son, you know that he loves to eat. And eating is very much a hands-on experience. I realize this is partly my fault for preferring to let him eat, say, bowls of mushy oatmeal on his own instead of spoon-feeding him. But really, when else am I going to eat my oatmeal, people?

Needless to say, we went through several bib options to find something that 1) contained the mess, 2) held up to heavy use, 3) was easy to clean - over and over again, and 4) could easily travel with us and to the babysitters'.

We found the perfect solution: Tommee Tippee Explora Bibs. I cannot say enough good things about these bibs. I bought a 2-pack about a year ago, and we use them 3-5 times a day. They provide good overall coverage, have a catch pouch, and use an easy snap in back that my son can't remove. They are really easy to wash - just a few seconds with a washcloth or sponge gets them clean. They still feel very clean and fresh after hundreds of uses. I keep waiting for the time when I'll have to replace them, but we're not even close yet.

Bonus: they are very reasonably priced.

Honestly, I won't ever think about getting a different kind of bib. These are perfect. Don't you love it when that happens?

I'm glad you wrote about these. Ike likes to pull his bibs off, even the ones with snaps. I've been wanting to get him some kind with the pockets on the bottom but the only ones I've seen use Velcro in the back, and I have wised up and sworn off Velcro forever. (I hate how it catches on everything in the dryer.) Anyway, will try these bibs.

I love those types of bibs too. They really help me in cleaning up faster. Wouldn't know what I would do without it.
