Bummis Best-Ever Bib Review + Giveaway

logo_bummis_enKids need clothes. Kids need food. Kids tend to ruin their clothes when they eat food. I confess to making my toddler eat spaghetti in the nude on more than one occasion because I didn’t want her outfit trashed.

Naked spaghetti night wouldn’t be such a big deal if it only happened at home – but food happens everywhere, multiple times a day. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, bedtime snack…I can’t have two naked kids for all those eating times – and I can’t just stay home or refuse to let them eat blueberries or tomato products whenever we go out to eat!

I was therefore ready to test the heck out of the new Bummis Best-Ever Bib. Bummis is one of the premiere cloth diaper manufacturers and is known for excellent quality, so I had high hopes for this bib. After all, a good cloth diaper is waterproof and releases stains – qualities I’d like in a bib, also!

For the first bib-test, I gave my 7-month old son two mesh teethers worth of banana-chunks. This is the bib when it was still clean:

Cute pattern, isn’t it? I loved the bright colors of the animals. It felt like the fabric on an outer shell of a cloth diaper (which seemed very appropriate, given who made the bib).

And, this is the bib a few minutes later… there was a decent goo-layer on there:

I’m not sure my camera picked up just how much banana is on there. I KNOW my camera didn’t pick up just how pukey and obnoxious the SMELL of bananas are (I didn’t always think that – but I didn’t always have messy, banana-loving kids).

Following this feeding, I just rinsed the bib in the sink. Yes, it’s washer and dryer friendly, but I prefer bibs I can use more than once before washing. Score! All the banana-goo rinsed right off, and I was able to just dry it on my dish rack until the next meal.

I next allowed my toddler to attempt to destroy it. I think she got close – she had a smoothie containing some cocoa powder with her lunch.

She’s still working on her spoon-skills.

There was plenty of discoloration from the chocolate on the bib when the meal was over. I again rinsed it in hot water, and most of it came out. Some faint cocoa-spots lingered, but I was able to scrub those out with a bottle brush in just a few seconds.

I really appreciated the pocket on the bib. It caught the chocolate drips that otherwise would have meant she needed to change her pants.

This bib worked great – durably constructed, easy to clean, and designed to keep kids cleaner!
