In my last post I discussed Esther starting solid foods and our picks for a safe high chair, sippy cup, and more. I mentioned that plastic bibs can have lead in them. Vinyl is one of the worst plastics because it often contains lead and phthalates - not something I want near my child's mouth. We got rid of all of our bibs last year and only use cloth ones that I make. We also recently got to try out aden + anais burpy bibs. These are super cool because they serve double purpose as a burp cloth and as a bib.
The shape allows the cloth to drape perfectly over my shoulder. I like that the cloths are soft and lightweight. They are made with several layers of aden + anais soft cotton muslin fabric, so they are very absorbent. There is a little snap attached on the back so you can easily fasten it around baby's neck to function as a bib.
After using bibs with snaps, I've sworn off velcro forever! Velcro gets fuzz in it, and sticks to everything in the wash, not so with these. You can see that Esther likes her new bibs. They cover her up nicely and when she reaches her arms up, the bottom of the bib kind of rolls up and makes a little pocket to catch spills. Did I mention that these come in super cute prints? ...and that I love aden + anais products? :)
