The other day, my husband and I went out to lunch with our almost one-year-old. As I watched him drop macaroni and cheese into his lap (my son, not my husband – although really, that could go either way), I was really wishing that I’d thought to bring along our Perfect Bib.
The Perfect Bib, created by Toppy Toddler, is designed for kids ages 9 months to 3 years old (and older). Made in the USA, the Perfect Bib is made of an eco-friendly and waterproof PUL fabric that easily wipes clean of your little one’s biggest messes. While other bibs also wipe clean, what’s really special about this one is the design. It’s actually a two-piece bib that’s able to be snapped and/or velcroed into numerous configurations depending on what you need it to do!
The main part of the bib has a Velcro closure so baby can wear it like any other bib, but it also has snaps on both sides so it can be converted into a pocket bib. My little guy likes to transfer his snacks from his high chair tray to the pocket, and then eat the snacks out of the pocket.
The second piece of the bib is an extension piece – made of the same material and design as the bib itself, it comes with Velcro strips on the back so it can be attached to the main bib to lengthen it. This is ideal for messier meals where you want baby’s lap covered, or times when you want to protect the table surface (like when your mom breaks out the fancy holiday tablecloth for Christmas dinner and then gives your baby something that will clearly stain the expensive family heirloom draped across the table).
The Perfect Bib is designed in such a way that the extension piece can be attached to the bib whether the bib is in “normal” mode or in “pocket” mode. The extension also makes a great place mat independent from the bib (although if your kidlet is like mine, unattached placemats make GREAT projectiles and end up on the floor). It can even be used as an emergency changing table cover!
The Perfect Bib also makes a great art smock or clothing cover for water table play. And when your little one is older, it can be flipped around and worn as a superhero cape! This bib is so versatile, I recommend keeping two or three on hand – one in your purse, one in the diaper bag, one near the high chair…
There are several different Perfect Bib patterns to choose from (my son is modeling the “Little Monkey” pattern, which is fitting for him). The Perfect Bib also comes in Sassy Pink, Little Birdies, Baby Dinosaurs, and Flowers. The regular version (like my son has) retails for $11.99 (shipping is FREE!) Or, you can order the deluxe version for $19.95 (still with free shipping), which comes with a Nuby suction bowl and a built-in opening for it in the extension piece.
And keep an eye out on Toppy Toddler’s Facebook page for the 10% discount codes they post, so you can stock up when you see it! Not only is the Perfect Bib great for your own little one(s), but it makes a great gift for baby showers and birthdays!
It also comes in handy for a rousing game of peek-a-boo!
