      When my grandchildren began weaning I bought these bibs. I did have fabric ones but I hoped that these ones would help to contain the mess that comes with the weaning process. Fabric bibs have some really good benefits, it's easy to just move it up to wipe the baby's face whilst these plastic ones can't do that but I found my grandchildren were very quick to pull the fabric bibs off and so bought these plastic ones in the hope they would stay on and help reduce mess. I bought them in blue but there was also the option of pink too. They don't use velcro to fasten but instead a press-stud type fastening and you can choose which notch to put it on so over time you may need to make the neck space wider as your baby grows. This meant that my grandson couldn't just pull it off like he is so good at doing with a fabric bib. It did seem to be comfortable for him, he didn't dislike it being on. It did catch some food and it was easy enough to clean out afterwards so that was good. It didn't 'catch all' like it says at all though, lots of food still ended up on his knees and on the floor. I didn't like how it also meant I had to have another bib or a cloth present so I could wipe his face too it seemed to just create more mess so didn't really do the job I hoped as food still went on the floor and his face had to be wiped with something else so I still needed to clean the floor, clean a plastic bib and clean a cloth too! I think they are a good idea but need adjusting a bit to make it work better.

      A great product, a time saver :)

      **What is it?** The Tommee Tippee Comfi - Neck Catch It All Bib is a bib made of a fairly hard plastic with a moulded catcher at the bottom. This is designed to catch the spills which come when feeding baby. I find that when your baby is younger (say six months and below) a soft bib is better as for me my daughter was on milk only and with teething, dribbled a lot. So whilst I don't feel it will replace any need for cloth bibs, it comes into it's own with toddler feeding. **Price and Availability** It's really easy to find the Tommee Tippee Comfi - Neck Catch It All Bib in the shops - you can get it in most supermarkets, Boots, Superdrug, John Lewis, Mothercare, Mamas and Papas and online at retailers such as Ebay and Amazon. The cost varies between £2 and £4 per bib. **Looks** The bib is made of a fairly hard feeling plastic with a strong moulded catcher to the bottom. It comes generally in the two colours, vibrant pink or turquoise blue, and has the Tommee Tippee logo in white on the front. To the back of the bib rather than velcro there is a post and hole system to keep the bib on, with four holes for variable sizes, my daughter is 18 months old and is still on the smallest size! Overall it's a nice looking bib, very vibrant. **Use** I started to use this bib when my daughter started to self feed at about 8 months, and it's been great. We use it at breakfast, and when cornflakes, milk, weetabix and banana end up in there, she can either eat from the catcher (as she often does!) or I can carefully take it off and clean up, with minimal food on her, and no cloth bib for me to clean and dry. The Tommee Tippee Comfi - Neck Catch It All Bib simply wipes clean (or, for very dirty mealtimes, it can be popped in the dishwasher - Godsend!) and is ready for use at lunch. The bib being so easy to clean and comfortable for my daugther to use means I can pop her in her highchair, put the bib on her, and put her dinner in front of her knowing that I won't come back to absolute chaos whilst I potter about cleaning (though I must add - it doesn't protect sleeves, hair...my lounge carpet...) It's been well used and saved me a lot of time - exactly what you want in a baby product. **Overall** I would give this a five out of five but to be honest the only reason I haven't is that I went into Poundland a few months back and bought a pink and purple set of two unbranded catcher bibs which are exactly the same in every single way but no Tommee Tippee logo. So they only cost me 50p each and they have been just as well used and have lasted just the same. So whilst I think the Tommee Tippee Comfi - Neck Catch It All Bibs are brilliant, I'd also suggest you pop into your local pound shop for an unbranded version as I can't really justify spending £8 on two catcher bibs when you could spend £1! Still, they are a great product and they will get well used, and I recommend you buy them to save time, mess and washing powder!

      5/5

      Weaning is a pretty big deal so before I introduced my daughter to purees etc I made sure that I had all the essentials such as eating utensils as well as a few good quality bibs that would catch any crumbs or yucky lumps of spat out food as I knew beforehand that it'd likely be a messy process! Tommee Tippee is a brand that I'm very familiar and we have heaps of bits and bobs from this brand, all of which are still in brilliant quality even after nearly seven months of use in some cases. This is why I chose these bibs as I knew that they'd be good quality and durable - plus they're incredibly good value for money. I managed to get our three bibs for around £1.80 each from Wilkinson's which considering how good quality they feel and how effective they are at minimizing mess, I think is a complete bargain! These are available from a wide range of shops including various supermarkets and websites. Prices do vary and a single bib retails from £1.00-£2.00 while a pack of two is priced at around the £3.00 mark. There are a range of bright colours to choose from ensuring that they appeal to parents with either a little boy or girl. I don't believe in the whole 'pink is for girls and blue is for boys' so rather than just grabbing three pink ones I got one in each colour - lime green, pink and blue. These were the only colours on offer in my local Wilkinson's but other colours available are red, black and purple. The bright colours ensure that any dribbles and dried bits of food shows up which is handy as I've found that porridge can stick to it and dry and be awkward to remove even after being in the dishwasher - which is why I always try to wash the bib immedietly after use rather than giving the food time to dry - this saves a lot of time in the long run. My daughter is currently in the 'bulking out' stage and doesn't have much of a neck at the minute meaning that I'm always concious of bibs around this area as I don't want the bib to be too tight/rub against her skin but I don't want it to be so loose that food and liquid can get under her chin/around her neck and cause dampness. These bibs are really handy as they can be adjusted to perfectly fit the baby - they're suitable for babies 4 months plus and my daughter who's seven months old is on the second hole fastening - there are four holes all together meaning that even as she grows we will still be able to use the bibs until she's not such a messy little piglet, lol. Luckily my daughter doesn't bat an eyelid when I put her bib on as we've used neck fastening bibs of her since she was tiny as she would just pull the velcro bibs off. For babies who aren't used to this style of bib it will likely take a little getting used to, but my daughter hasn't shown any discomfort and the bib is nice and soft around her neck. It's not heavy and doesn't press against my babies skin. As the bibs aren't too bulky and are very lightweight, I can easily fit one in my baby bag if we're going to be eating somewhere other than home. The bib fits securely and covers the whole of her front, ensuring her clothes stay as clean as possible and she is unable to remove it by herself despite a few attempts! I was a little worried that because it's made of a rubbery plastic type of material it might cause her to have an allergic reaction to the material (I'm mega paranoid!) but nope, we've had no issues at all!! Due to the material this can be washed pretty quickly - I usually just run it under a tap and dry it but if it's particullary messy I just stick it in the dishwasher and it washes well - none of ours are stained nor does the material hold smells. Erin loves her food and usually eats any crumbs etc left in the little 'compartment' (no idea what the technical term is) and as it's so wide it catches a majority of food falling from babies mouth although obviously if you have a rebel baby like I do it doesn't help much with containing the mess of food that's been thrown around the room! These bibs overall are brilliant. I really can't recommend them enough!

        A great little bib for a great little price

        Not long after we started weaning my daughter I had had enough of soggy, dirty cloth bibs lying around waiting for the next load of washing to go in. I surfed the web looking for an alternative and came across the Tommee Tippee Catch All bibs, after reading a few reviews I decided to give them ago. The bib itself is made from plastic and has a soft rim around the neck making it comfier for baby to wear. On one side of the fastening are four holes, and the other side has a produding disc which fits into the holes to secure the bib, providing you with four different sized neck holes. Whilst I'm sure some babies/toddlers can have this bib off in a second, my son is almost 2 and still hasn't figured out how to take it off - but then he quite likes wearing it so doesn't really try! The bottom of the bib curves up both at the front and the sides so that any food baby drops falls into the bib ready to be retrieved if baby wants to - if not, at least it saves you picking it all up from the floor! And as the bib is plastic, clothes underneath stay nice and dry. The bib is easily cleaned with warm soapy water, and easily dried so it can be used again immediately if necessary - or if you're out and about a quick wipe down with a baby wipe and you can pop it back into your bag! The bib is well made and lasted both our children (they had one each, not the same one!) from weaning to the stage they no longer needed a bib - or in the case of my son, it will do! He is still using it at the moment but I won't be buying another bib! I do find that the holes on the fastening tend to stretch. The hole we have always used doesn't hold the bib fastened anymore so we have had to move onto another hole. Another thing is that, although we used it from around 6 months, the bib is quite wide so it did restrict his movement a little - for example if he wanted to pass things from hand to hand it would sometimes get in his way, but not to the extent I stopped using it. You can pick these bibs up for around £2.50, they come in a range of colours and do exactly what you need them to do!

        Recommended.

        When my son was younger I had a variety of bibs for him to wear in order to protect his clothing and to cut down on the ridiculous amount of laundry a baby and toddler tends to generate. One of the bibs I had was the Tommie Tipppee Comfi-Neck Catch-All Bib which I bought from Amazon (www.amazon.co.uk) for just £2.95 (including post and packaging) and I thought that this was a really good price that I was happy to pay. You can get this bib from high street stores, but I found that Amazon offered the best price. The bib comes in three colours, namely pink, green and blue. I think the pink and the blue are nice shades, but the green is a kind of diarrhoea green and it's just not nice. I bought my son the blue version which is a nice light but bright blue shade. It has no decoration on it and so it's plain, other than the "Tommee Tippee" logo which is printed in white on the front of the bib. The bib is made in a traditional design which means that it sits flat against the chest and then has a catch tray at the bottom of the bib which is designed to catch any drips or small food spills that my son may have. The bib is made of plastic and while it is rigid it also has some flexibility which seems to make the bib fairly comfortable to wear. Because it is made of plastic it can be easily wiped over between uses with just soapy water and it cleans up easily. I like the fact that I don't have to put this through the washing machine and therefore it is always ready for use. However, because it is made of plastic, it cannot be folded up small to fit into a bag and so it was a bib that I only tended to use when I was in the house and not when I was out and about. The bib is fastened around the neck and there are little plastic pegs that need to be pushed into one of the holes to fasten it securely. Fastening it is easy and it is easy to remove also, although as my son got older it got to the point that he was able to remove the bib easily also - and this could be a messy business at times! There was a soft bit that went around the neck and therefore this aided the comfort also. Overall, this bib worked fairly well. It did protect my sons clothes well and most bits did get caught in the catch tray at the bottom of the bib. However, because it was so easy to undo, it did mean that sometimes their would be a mess created when he tried to remove the bib. I would recommend this bib for use at home although it's not really the best option for using when out and about simply because it cannot be reduced in size.

        You don't always get a better product by paying more

        These bibs have been an absolute godsend for me. My one and two year old girls use these, particularly when eating their evening meal. They are ideal as they catch the majority of food before it ends up on their clothing-or on the floor. These bibs normally cost about £2.50 each, and are available from most supermarkets and baby stores. They have ample room to fit around babies/toddlers necks, and you can fasten them on on of four holes for a good fit. These bibs also come with a white edging around the neck for added comfort. The bibs are really light, so they can be carried around in a bag with you. We have found these bibs really handy, particularly with my youngest suffering from reflux. When she was sick we were able to simply remove the bib and wash it-without the need for a change of clothes. It's saved staining many an outfit. This bib is available in blue, green or pink. As much as I think these bibs are a fantastic idea, I find that the plastic material cracks really quickly where the bib fastens up at the back-making the whole bib useless. I would recommend the Tommee Tippee catcher bibs, as before we started using these my children were forever staining tops. They can be used from when you start weaning up until they are toddlers. I'm glad I cam across these bibs, but if you have a poundland nearby then I would advise you to get their own make-you get two for a pound and the plastic lasts a lot longer.

        A poor bib from a good company

        Since I purchased my Bibetta bibs for my daughter I have used no other bib except for a cheapy one from Ikea that I keep in my changing bag for feeding whilst on the go. However, my sister was clearing out her cupboards a month or so ago and getting rid of all her baby feeding stuff and passed on this bib - the Tommee Tippee Catch all Neck Bib to me, in the same colour as shown in the picture above. My immediate thought would be that I would replace the cheap Ikea bib that I had with this bib, since my Ikea one didn't have a catch part at the bottom, meaning that if my daughter dropped any of her food or snack, they would land on the floor. This particular bib can be purchased online and varies in price. This bib has been designed to be a comfortable neck bib for a baby to wear and with its scoop at the bottom, is should collect all food or liquid that has been dropped or missed the mouth. Tommee Tippee also maintains that this bib is very easy to clean, by just putting it under a tap. This bib has a number of button at the neck to secure it around baby's neck and this is where the first problem arises. Firstly, I find that it doesn't clip in well, and trying to get it secure when you have a very hungry child isn't easy, and when you do get it clipped in, it just doesn't seem to hold very securely. Every time I have worn this bib on my daughter I have had to fix the neck fastener. The other issue that I have with this bib is that is just so hard. My daughter doesn't seem to be very fond of wearing it, and to be honest she doesn't look that comfortable in it either. Compared to her lovely comfortable bibetta bibs, this bib just hangs around her neck and if she tuns her head, it just doesn't move with her and gets in the way. This bib is easy to clean as is claimed which is a plus point, and it doesn't matter what is dropped it can be wiped clean, although again my Bibetta bibs can be thrown in the washing machine to really clean them thoroughly and that is a feature that obviously can't be done with this bib. In regards to catching food and liquid, well it does a good enough job at that which is obviously an important part of a bib, but I do think the negatives of this bib outweigh the positives and to be honest I have now stopped using it, and had went back to my cheapy Ikea bibs, as at least my daughter was comfortable in them! Not a good Tommee Tippee bib in my opinion and would be my last resort when it comes to purchasing or using a bib around my daughter.

        Minimal fuss bib for minimal mess! Yay!

        Oh my goodness, I could not rave about this genius creation by Tommee Tippee any more! Babies are messy little things, Meal times with my little girl were fast becoming a nightmare, with crumbs going everywhere. I popped to my local Mothercare to browse their selection of bibs and came across these. They had lots of different colours, including blue, pink, green and yellow. I think I paid approximately £4.00 for this one. they have a couple of different style of these 'catcher bibs'; I am reviewing the 'Roll N Go' which I believe is the one pictured. These bibs are super soft, and made from a rubbery substance. They are not harsh on baby's skin as they are so soft. The poppers are really easy to do up, and the bib is simple to wipe clean. They are also dishwasher safe. The bib rolls up for easy storage. Finally, do they work? Oh yes, they certainly do! No more mess, no more fuss! The only con I will mention with these bibs is that they do tend to catch long hair, so be careful when popping up and un- popping. Other than that, a good priced product that is effective and minimises mess!

        The original catch-all bib's been updated (but not by much)

        While fabric bibs are brilliant when baby is only drinking milk and perfectly adequate for the first stage of weaning, there comes a point when baby starts feeding himself and a little more coverage is required. As a mum of five I've tried plenty of different types of bib out and the one I keep coming back to is the Tommee Tippee Catch All Bib. The design of the catch all bib has changed very little in the last twenty years, with the only slight tweak being that the words comfi-neck have been added into it's name. Available in three colours, rather than being made of fabric the Catch All bib is made from semi rigid plastic. Completely free from BPA the bib has an adjustable neck fastening, but the real selling point of this bib is the 'drip tray' at the bottom. Although the standard selling price for this bib is £2.29, I managed to pick a couple up at the local pound shop at just £1 each which is a complete bargain, if you ask me. We've been using these bibs in conjunction with a Boots roll-up catch all bib (that cost a smidge over £2) for the last four months now, so this review will not only reflect our experiences of using these bibs but will also compare it with the Boots one. The Tommee Tippee bib is available in three different colours, pink, blue and green. As my baby is a boy and only the blue and pink bibs were available in the pound shop, I obviously bought the blue. From memory the Boots bibs were only available in blue and pink so, so far one up to Tommee Tippee for an ever so slightly larger range of colours. The Tommee Tippee bib is made of fairly rigid plastic and fastens behind the neck using a peg and hole style system, there are four different holes which give a fairly good range of fits, fitting children from about six to eighteen months. While the bib will fit the majority of babies, those at the very lowest edge of the spectrum may find it a little loose. Something that has appeared over the years is a softer edge around the neck, that I'm assuming gives the bib it's new comfi-neck moniker. Now I'm not absolutely convinced as to how much more comfortable this edging makes the bib, but it does completely eliminate any sharp edges that may chaff a baby's neck. While being BPA-free the plastic this bib is made of is fairly stiff especially when compared to the bib from Boots. This does mean that there are times when my Little Man does look just a touch uncomfortable, especially as the bib is just slightly too long and doesn't quite hang freely between the Little Man's neck and his highchair tray. Oh and at nearly a year and on the 75th centile for height, the Little Man is no shrimp (unlike his Mum), so I would imagine that this would be far more of a problem with shorter than average babies. It's when babies are start feeding themselves that these bibs really come into their own. As any parent will tell you, feeding yourself is an art that can take a while to master, first the baby needs to learn to pick food up (whether it's with hands or a spoon) and then transfer that food to their mouth. My Little Man definitely prefers to use his hands, no matter what he's eating, and there are plenty of times that he doesn't quite manage to find his mouth in time. While wearing these bibs any food he drops falls straight into the fairly large drip tray, meaning that it doesn't end up all over the floor (well not as much does). This not only protects the Little Man's clothes and the floor but also gives him a chance to have a delve into the tray to have another try at eating anything he's dropped. This means there's actually a little less food wasted at each meal time, and that he's a little less frustrated. While this works brilliantly for fairly solid food, it can mean that when eating foods such as baked beans there's actually a little more mess as he gets his hands covered in bean juice. While these bibs are fantastic for protecting the front of Little Man's clothes while eating, they do have a few drawbacks. The first of these is that they're not the most practical of bibs for the messy drinker (of which category my little man definitely fits). Any dribbled fluids will quickly fill the drip tray which then leaves the risk of juice going everywhere. Being an experienced parent who had already experienced this problem, I was fully prepared. And I would recommend everyone to do as I do and be ready with some kitchen roll to mop up the liquid in the bib before it starts leaking and definitely before removing the bib. Another slight drawback is that this is not a coverall bib, meaning that Little Man's arms are not covered and his sleeves can still get messy. Again this doesn't actually bother me too much, I simply roll his sleeves up, but it is something to be aware of. My final gripe is that this bib simply takes up a lot of space in the changing bag. As it's semi-rigid it doesn't roll up, and as we do like to take little man out to eat, this bib just isn't really as suitable as it could be (unlike the Boots bib that does roll up). Once meal time is over the bib is very easy to clean, being made of plastic, it's just a case of removing it from the child, emptying any collected food and then washing it. Not having a dishwasher, I can't comment on whether it's dishwasher safe (but I would imagine it is), but I have sterilised one on occasion (using cold water sterilisation) without it coming to any harm. Being made of plastic this bib is virtually impossible to stain, I won't say impossible, but so far ours haven't picked up the colour of any of the brightly coloured foods Little Man has eaten, including carrot and baked beans. Although the colour has slightly faded and the Tommee Tippee worn a little, the bibs look virtually as good as new even after being used (and washed up) three times a day for the last few months. But this is exactly as I expected, having previously used these bibs with my older children and having those bibs last from the start of independent feeding up to about eighteen months of age. If any parent of a baby who was starting to feed themselves were to ask advice on which bibs to get, I'd still have no hesitation in recommending that they buy one or more of these for use at home. While they're still perfectly suitable for use while out and about, they're not actually the best for this purpose, so I would also recommend getting a roll-up catch all bib for trips. But even after twenty years, I do think these are the best bibs for learner feeders, they are durable, do not stain or absorb liquid, are easy to clean and allow the child a second chance when they drop the food. But as I've said they are not perfect, if you're worried that your child is going to ruin their £100 designer outfit, then this isn't the bib for you (get a coverall bib or cheaper clothes). There's also not the best bibs for liquids, (but a bit of kitchen does mop up juice very easily) and they're not particularly easy to pack in the changing bag. But all things considered, I am going to give these bibs four stars out of five, because they are the original and best catch-all bib.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          depends on the individual

          It is always handy to have bibs around the house, and the cloth ones are forever staining especially with the dreaded tomato and cheese flavoured items. In addition when a toddler is 'exploring' their food, mess everywhere is the result. I tried to adopt the 'independance' approach for my son when he was learning to eat properly (which seems to have worked, not quite 3 and using a knife and fork), which meant his hands, face, clothes and the furniture surrounding him being splattered with food and sauces!! This approach became costly to be fair,as i was forever buying new bibs and tops as i could never get the stains out!! Asda often have baby events in store throughout the year, a chance to buy baby products, and often branded ones, at a reduced price. I saw this Bib on offer at £1.99 and thought i would give it a go. This bib is widely available both on the internet and in the pharmacies such as boots and the supermarkets, and i bought mine from asda. Mine was blue, for a boy of course and as you can see from the picture above is plastic in material with the Tommee tippee logo in the middle. This bib has a softer edge that lines the neck, engineered for comfort and is done up at the back of the neck. One side has punched holes and the other, a disc shaped 'lump' in which you place through the hole most appropriate to fit the child. The base of the bib is almost pelican like and flicks up collecting lots of goodies 'to have later'. it will hold both solids and liquids as the plastic is waterproof and when my son is wearing it, it comes to approx his belly button. Now the problem i have with this bib, is not the price or comfort around the neck, which my son doesnt seem to mind, but it is the stiffness of the product, it doesnt roll like newer products and if the bib does not undo easily, you may lose the contents of the bib 'collector' over your child or the table, and depending on what has been eaten, this is not particularly pleasent! The bib, is however easy to clean and due to the 'pelican' bottom, it does seem to cover a larger area than most bibs. At £1.99, a bargain too!! I think that there are better products on the market to be honest, and with my next child i think i will go for the softer material bib. 3/5 for me!

          As our son got older I didn't like the white cloth bibs that we had because of stains and the bib being too small. He could also take them off because they were fastened with Velcro. This bib we have is blue and has a crumb catcher that he likes to eat the leftovers from the meal when he is finished. It has 4 holes around the neck of the bib that you use to secure it around there neck choosing what hole to fasten it with depends how big or little your baby's neck is. It is easy washable just put it in the dishwasher or wipe clean because it has a plastic rubbery material sort of feel to it. When my son was very little the bib was to big for him so I think this is for an older baby but still good the neck part of his clothes just got dirty thats all but at 6 months I changed his top about 3 times a day anyway so dosn't matter. We bought them 6 months ago costing £3.50 each from boots I don't know where you could get them now or how much because we still have the same bibs we bought back then so they are very durable I thought that the crumb catcher would break but it hasn't. I am very pleased with this product and would recommend them to every parent because they are so easy to wash and last a long time.

          Doesnt catch anything in practice

          I was instantly attracted to this bib in the supermarket at the time that my daughter was 6 months old. She had just started to eat solids and I was beginning the cycle of never ending dirty bibs. I thought this was a good idea and thought at 5 euro I would give it a go and see if it worked for us and even save us a bit on washing! I got mine in pink for my daughter but I think they have them in a blue colour if you have a boy. The bib itself has a rubbery texture that rolls up for easy storage. There are holes on the strap that you push a rubber tip into to secure them in place. They can be a bit fiddly but its excellent for keeping the bib on the child. As my daughter got older she loved to rip hers off and throw it on the ground but she couldnt with this. There is an upturn in the end of the bib that is designed to catch any food that may usually fall on clothes. Its texture also makes it easy to wipe clean but it can stain for food such as spaghetti bolognese. It is small enough to be thrown in the handbag if your going out to dinner. To be honest I didnt get much use out of it because after putting it on my daughter a few times it wouldnt sit right and the tip of the collar was sagging down so her collar would still get filthy with food even though the rest was protected. This was even on the smallest size neck. I eventually had to put a bib on under this bib in order for her neck to stay clean. It wasnt worth the hassle in the end and I stopped using it. My daughter is two years old now so there is no need for her to use this anymore but I wish I had kept my money in my pocket because for me this product didnt catch much at all.

          When I started my daughter on solid foods, not baby rice actual food, she just loved to feed herself which meant more mess than when I would feed her and with a few of the baby foods being that bright orange colour I was worried about her clothes. Normally I put the over the head bibs on my daughter but they didn't completely cover her clothes so I realised I needed another option. It was suggested to me that I pick up one of the Tomme Tippee Comfi-neck catch it all bib so when I was next at Tesco I decided to buy one to try. On the shelf there was a choice of two of the bibs, a pink or a blue one so I picked up the pink one. The bib is made out of a durable plastic and curves at the bottom to make a bowl effect in which to catch any food that may drop down. It is easy to put the bib onto your baby, there is a stud on the back and four holes in which you can attach it. When you look at the bib it looks as though it would be quite stiff but it is surprisingly flexible which I think is very important for a baby to wear. When using this bib I would still put a normal bib underneath, I was so worried about my daughters clothes being spoiled with those dreadful bright orange stains and it didn't help that I almost always dressed her in white when she was small!! My daughter never seemed to be feeling comfortable when wearing this bib, it appeared as though it was weighing her down a little even though it isn't overly heavy. It always seemed to be in the way for her when she was sitting in her high chair also, she would struggle in being right up to the tray and this would result in her just pulling it off most of the time! This bib is very easy to clean, simply wipe clean when finished with or wash it with the washing up as we always did. It is also extremely easy for a baby to remove this bib which I don't think is such a good thing. The cost of these bibs is around £2.50 depending on where you get it from, which isn't a bad price if you find it works for you. I don't think these bibs are all that great, I found that food still found its way onto my daughters clothes or the carpet as of course babies don't always just drop food straight down their fronts do they!?! While I agree it was good when food was dropped down the front, I don't think it is much better than a standard bib and its something I could have definately coped without and not something I would buy again should I ever have another baby. My personal opinion is that these are quite unnecessary and just another thing for us mums to buy when not really needed! I think I will give these bibs two out of five stars as they really aren't anything special I don't think. Thank you for reading my review :)

            My daughter is very small as she has Down's Syndrome and this bib is just to baggy on her and we end up putting a cloth bib underneath as lots of teh food comes through the top gap.We've just this week received 2 fab new bibs from ZPM. I've just suggested them to dooyoo so watch my profile for an update on these fab things - they are the best!

            A good buy but not an everyday essential

            Most bibs tend to be fabric with velcro fasteners. I have a good many of these and they do have their benefits - easy to store, cheap, can be used to wipe baby's face after eating and simply bunged in the washing machine. Of course they also have their disadvantages - older toddlers can probably remove them themselves quite easily, you can't generally adjust the size, they don't catch food and some stains just don't come out! They also provide too little coverage I find, as MissD manages to get food all over her bib ... and below it ... and to the sides .... But these plastic bibs are something completely different. Available in blue, green and pink, and priced at about £2.29, these are sturdy plastic bibs with a curved bottom to catch bits and pieces in! They have four holes around the neck so the size is completely adjustable. They are very easy to clean - any bits caught can be binned and the bib itself simply wiped clean. I tend to use these bibs when MissD is eating something where there is likely to be 'fall-out' such as small pasta shapes or beans! Sometimes the amount of food caught in the bib is enough for another meal... I do find one big disadvantage to using these bibs - as they are big, I find the bottom of the bib can get in the way of MissD's highchair table. This makes it quite awkward for her to sit comfortably - and I do admit this puts me off using them. But I do think they will be good when she is sitting on actual chairs that don't have a table attached (and in fact in her nursery they have small chairs with no table, and they all wear these types of bib). Overall, I would recommend that parents consider buying one of these handy bibs - but not necessarily as a permanent replacement to the fabric ones. The bibs are suitable from six months, and are free from the plastic chemical BPA (bisphenol A), which some studies have found are not good for children.
