Francesca Baby Oversized Bibs Review and Giveaway!


Handmade Oversized Bibs

Review & Giveaway


THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

CONGRATULATIONS TO JESS & THE BOYS!

TAKE A MOMENT TO STILL VISIT FRANCESCA BABY ON ETSY.COM








Have you ever been frustrated while feeding your child with food everywhere – streaming down their chest – down their legs and all in the seat of the highchair?

Don’t you wish that you had a better bib … a bigger and more durable one?

When I found Francesca Baby bibs, I was ecstatic to try them!



Want one of your own?

Keep reading to find out how you can win an Oversized bib ($10 Value), offered as a special gift from Francesca Baby to the winner of this Crazy Days giveaway.


Noah is at that stage in his life (7 months old) where bibs have become a necessity. Between the constant drooling caused by those impending teeth, to our adventure in eating each day, our household tears through bibs like we do diapers!

As Noah has gotten older …. and bigger….one of our biggest complaints has definitely been the size of the bibs – or the lack thereof. They all seem to be made for a baby with a very small neck and the bibs scoop to only mid chest – leaving plenty of room for that cereal, and our homemade baby food, to dribble down onto his legs and all over the highchair.

I was very excited when I recently found the store, Francesca Baby. Her oversized bibs are fantastic and have a multitude of great features that I must say have me thrilled! I had the privilege of trying one of her bibs with Michael Miller "Bot Camp" fabric.













The bibs come nearly down to Noah’s knees when he is sitting upright, catching much more of the trickling food than standard bibs do and will serve well as Noah grows older due to the size. The collar features a pearl snap rather than Velcro. Why is this better? Noah tugs at his bib to rip it off, and somehow the Velcro always loses. He has yet to be able to undo the snap!

At the end of each meal, I take his bib and wipe his mouth off of the major food mess. I find that most bibs don't allow me to cleanup his face very well. The Francesca bibs actually do! How? The back of each bib is lined with a soft cotton fabric that allows me to wipe his face with the front of the bib and then fold it and subsequently use the back for additional cleanup!










Outside of the functionality, the designs featured on the bibs are darling (front and back) and kept Noah a little preoccupied trying to look at it!

What a great bib! Definitely made with love and will definitely last a long time!













Those followers who would like to order a bib from Francesca Baby will receive a 10% discount when you mention that you read this review on my blog!!!

Another product I'd like to try is the strap covers (especially in the cool treats print) I think the extra padding would really feel much better for my kids and they'd enjoy the fun fabrics.
