|Gorgeous hand made bibs from Juju's Patch|
Auntie Juliana from Gisborne had hand sewn them specially for Kate. Juliana has a real knack for sewing and recently started Juju's Patch, which specialises in hand made items from different sorts of gorgeous fabric. The thing about hand made stuff is that everything will be unique and there is no two alike, just like Kate. :)

Bibs. They are absolute must haves for new parents. Especially when baby reaches about 4 months old and starts to grow teeth. Along with teething comes drooling, lots of drooling.
While we could get away with using facial wipes during the first 3 months, it was more practical and economical to use bibs after that. On a long day out, we would bring along at least 4 bibs to last the day. At home, we have bibs strategically stationed around the house to facilitate a quick change.
To help you, we've compiled a list of items to look out for when shopping for a bib for baby.
1. Soft Material
Because you're wiping baby's face all the time and you want it to be as smooth an experience as possible. The very same rationale why we go for 3 ply tissues over 1 ply sandpaper.
|Soft and smooth.|
2. Look Good Or Cute
The bibs should really look good or cute because the reality is that they will be covering most of what baby is wearing. When baby looks good, mummy and daddy feel good too.
3. The One That Holds It Altogether
The connector that most bibs come with are either a strip of velcro, a pair of pinned buttons or a piece of string. Our order of preference would be velcro followed by pinned buttons and then strings. In fact, we would avoid the ones with strings completely because seriously, have you ever tried tying a knot with one hand?

4. And Finally Try To Set Them Up Nice.
Unless, baby sees the lighter side of things.
