I’m a big fan of Baby Wings dummy clips and have raved about them on several occasions, but now Baby Wings have moved into the mucky world of baby bibs and the question is, do their bibs live up to the same high standards?
About the bibs
Baby Wings silicone bibs come in a pack of two including a blue bib decorated with the Baby Wings duck and a green bib decorated with a cartoon alien. The bibs are flexible and wipe clean, with a large food pocket and a button style fastening allowing the bib to be set to a wide variety of neck widths.
Each pack of bibs come with a free temperature sensing fork and spoon.
When I first started weaning Baby I thought a bib was a bib. They just have to sit there and keep food off of Baby’s clothes and there’s nothing magical about that. Except there is! The majority of bibs are too big, to small, too easy to take off, too uncomfortable, too difficult to clean… the list is endless! In fact Baby was over a year old before I got my hands on a bib that I felt worked really well, and even that wasn’t perfect, so I had my fingers crossed that the Baby Wings bibs would live up to the same standards as their baby clips.
Until I received my Baby Wings bibs, I had only ever used fabric bibs and was understandably sceptical about their ability to be both functional and comfortable. I worried that the bibs would rub Baby’s delicate neck or get in her way while she was eating. What I discovered however, was that the silicone bibs seemed to take the very best aspects of fabric and hard plastic bibs.
Because the bibs are extremely flexible, my fears of Baby being uncomfortable were unfounded. The bibs don’t bother her any more than her fabric bibs do and the flexibility also means that the bibs can easily be rolled up and stored in a nappy bag or draw, just like a fabric bib.
The fastenings on the bibs also deserve note. The Baby Wings bibs fasten with a silicone button system, but there are so many buttons and corresponding holes, that you really can get a nice snug fit. Impressively, they also hold up to Baby’s best escape attempts, which is a mammoth feat in itself.
The food pouch at the bottom of these bibs is another area that I’m really impressed with. They seems to be the perfect size to catch nearly all the food that escapes Baby’s mouth, and because the silicone always wants to pop back into shape, the pouch is always open. This has a distinct advantage over fabric bibs with similar pouches, as these only tend to catch food that falls out of Baby’s mouth, not the food that falls off the spoon on-rout! As a result, since using the Baby Wings bibs, instances of picking up Baby to find her legs and bum covered in escaped food have dropped dramatically.
The final thing worth noting about the Baby Wings bibs is that they’re wipe clean. I can’t tell you how much of a relief this is after months of washing bibs. With the help of an ever-useful baby wipe the bibs can be cleaned and re-used several times before they need to be washed in soapy water. The bibs also don’t stain in the way that fabric ones do, which is very convenient if you have a Baby who is addicted to blueberries!
I really like these Baby Wings bibs. They fit well, are comfortable, stay on, and catch most food which doesn’t make it into Baby’s tummy. Since owning them they have become my go to bib, both for their functionality and because they are so easy to keep clean with no need to put them into the laundry. They even come with some cute cutlery which is the perfect size for Baby to fling food at me with.
