A bib for all occasions
Bumkins revolutionized the bib for parents and babies alike. Now there is a waterproof bib, with a Velcro closure, that has a catch all pocket. It resists most stains and odors, the durable and comfortable fabric is PVC & phthalates free. The colors last up to 200+ washes without fading. I did wash it several times and hung it dry with no complaints. Did any of that catch your attention? I sure hope so. Read on my faithful readers, read on.
The MITK test was seeing if a child could pull it off. After much trying, two hands, fussing at the neck by the closure eventually. Just pulling at it the closure was quite durable and I was pleasantly surprised that it held up through the kid test.
Waterproof & Stain resistant- spilled water, baby food, apple sauce, cottage cheese, chicken, beef, cereal, milk. All were resistant and when I also did juices (cranberry and grape) the bib withstood the juices and foods. Yes, I did rinse the bib within minutes and washed it within a day but it held up well. It’s a lighter color one I tested but it’s a functional fabric that seems to wipe clean of everything I tried.
Washing- per the instructions I hung to dry pocket inside out. Held up to several washings in my washing machine and I used an assortment of detergents as I do whenever I test any fabric. None of them faded it or ate at it. Good all around. Hanging dry as suggested and due to the fabric I don’t suggest putting it in the dryer.
If you can't find one local, order one today.
