My daughter never was much of a bib-wearer. She actually didn’t drool a whole lot and I just preferred to change her clothes after messy meals instead of using a bib (not sure why – I think I’m just a minimalist by nature…).
That said, I know plenty of moms who have their little ones wear bibs all day long because it is easier for them.
If your little one is the bib-sporting type, this is something new to consider. Bibs & Match offers “innovative bibs that attach directly to the onesies to help prevent strangulation and suffocation.”
Molly, a mom of two and the inventor of the product, explains how she thought of the idea: “There were numerous occasions when my baby fell asleep with a bib on and I didn’t want to disturb him to unsnap or unVelcro the bib from the back of his neck. Then I’d worry about bib strangulation.” As a result of this frustration, she did what so many moms amaze me in doing – she created a solution!
Bibs and Match sets feature simple, modern, cartoon-style animal pictures and can be interchanged easily – the “heads” on the bibs match with the “body” on the onesie. Very clever! That is my favorite feature of Bibs & Match (besides the safety feature, of course).
At present, there aren’t a whole lot of designs to choose from and the ones that are available tend to be more boyish than girlish in my opinion, but the website states that they are meant to be gender-neutral.
Bibs & Match sets can be purchased online or at a retailer near you. The sets are available in the following sizes: 3-6m, 6-9m, 9-12m.
