As anyone who has a newborn knows they feed a lot and they are forever dribbling milk and being sick, so a stockpile of bibs is a must. I bought loads of bibs for Jacob before he was born but they are fairly thin and the milk/ sick just seeps through them onto his clothing.
Recently I was sent a FirstBib for Jacob to try out from Zippy Suit. I had not even heard of Zippy suit until I recently, they were set up by founder Nicole Graham when she got frustrated trying to match up the poppers on her daughters babygrows (I am always getting in a muddle when popping babygrows up, even after three children) so she decided to make a babygrow with zips, and so zippy suits were born and its where the name comes from. But they don't just make babygrows they also make bibs they have the FirstBib, Fun bandana bibs and Absorbent bandana bibs.
Obviously, as Jacob is still a small baby we were sent a FirstBib which is size 0-3 month's, it is designed like a traditional flat bib but is gathered around the neck so that it stretches and catches milk so that milk does not get into all them little creases tiny baby's have around there necks. When the bib arrived I was impressed with just how soft it felt, it was thicker then other bibs I have purchased too as it has a cotton fleece backing which makes it extra absorbent. The best thing is it has poppers on the back instead of dreaded velcro that most bibs have that get caught on everything.
Now Jacob is quite a little chunky monkey with squishy, chubby cheeks and I was worried that the bib might be a bit small, but I need not have worried as it fitted him perfectly. There is two poppers on the back so you can adjust the bib and either have it on a small or bigger fastener, we had it on the bigger fastener. The front of the bib is stretchy so it fitted around his neck perfectly and we had no dribbles of milk escaping into his creases like happens with his normal bibs. Even when he was sick his clothes did not get wet as the bib absorbed it and stopped it soaking through to his clothes.
I really liked this bib as it is perfect for newborns, it is so absorbent and soft and fits nice and snug around little necks without being restrictive or tight. I also like the fact that you can have the poppers on different fastenings so that it fits your child better. And it even washes really well, I have washed this bib a few times now and it still looks like new, no fading or bobbling and it has kept its shape.
This bib gets a big thumbs up from us as it is perfect for newborn babies. We were sent this bib in pale mint but it also comes in a range of different colours and they even do preemie sizes for tiny, tiny babies. all the FirstBibs are priced at £2.50 which I think is great value. You can buy them online from www.zippysuit.com so why not pop on over and have a look at the lovely range of bibs and zippy suits that they sell.
