Our Analysis

These fun, safe, and highly functional bibs are exactly what every parent needs when feeding children ages 6 months to 2 years. Made of a proprietary polyester and waterproof fabric that's free of vinyl, PVC, BPA, phthalates, and lead, Bumkins soft bibs come in a variety of colors and designs, including images by Dr. Seuss and pop artist Keith Haring. The generous, catch-all pockets along with the bib's large size help to keep baby and baby's clothes clean underneath. Adjustable Velcro around the neck makes putting the bib on easy and quick. Available for purchase individually, or in packs of two or three.

What more could you ask for in a baby bib, except maybe that it clean itself and the baby at the same time?
