Snug Silicone Baby Bibs Review #sponsored

I received free product in exchange for my honest opinions. Affiliate links included.

I have a love-hate relationship with bibs. As much as I want to protect my children’s clothing, the cloth ones do no good. Messy foods soak through them and end up ruining the clothing anyway. My youngest has a hate-hate relationship with bibs. She learned how to jerk them off the second I put them on before she could eat solids, and I’ve struggled to find a bib that would both protect her clothes and be impossible to remove.

We’ve been using the Snug Silicone Baby Bibs for a few days now, and I have to say these are some of the best bibs we have tried. The multipack features 3 bibs available in either “boy” or “girl” colors. Of course, we chose the girl colors, and we received one each in pink, purple, and light green.

Snug bibs are made from waterproof silicone that protects clothing and is super easy to clean by rinsing or wiping clean. Each bib features an adjustable neck strap in a pearl bead design, and a pocket to catch falling food. Even my daughter, the bib hater, is loving this bib. She thinks the pearl neck strap looks like a necklace, and she tells everyone she’s wearing her new necklace. We’ve also discovered the food pocket does more than catch snacks. It’s sturdy enough to hold crackers and snacks, and she gets a kick out of wearing it as a snack cup.

I only have one complaint about the Snug silicone bib. The neck strap is attached to the bib with a connector that can come off very easily if the child is big enough to tug on it. The packaging even states to push the connector back into the bib and twist to secure if it falls off, but twisting does NOT make it secure.

The connector is about the size of a penny making it the perfect size for a choking hazard, especially with my 2 year old who loves to put anything she can get her hands on in her mouth! I have to keep a super close eye on her to make sure she doesn’t pop the thing off and swallow it.

With a redesign of the connector to make it more secure, this would be the perfect bib as the connector issue is the only thing holding me back from completely loving it.

Baby More Co. Baby Wrap Review

I received a free Baby More Co. Baby Wrap in exchange for my honest opinions of the product.

When Aubrey came along I tried a conventional baby carrier, and she screamed every single time I put her in it. I gave up on the baby carrier and donated it. For the most part life without a baby carrier has been okay, but as Aubrey has gotten bigger I’ve started to have a lot of back pain after carrying her long distances. Most days she wants to run or walk beside me, but I carry her a lot if she tires out on a long walk or if we are in a crowded place where I don’t want to risk her running off. Strollers aren’t an option because she’s already figured out how to undo the belt. My super speedy toddler can wrangle herself out of the stroller and take off running so fast I’m playing catch up to stop her.

When I was offered the opportunity to test out a Baby More Co. Baby Wrap I decided this might just be my answer to my problems.

Aubrey has always been on the small side, and at 23 months she weighs the same as my friend’s 7 month old, not quite 24lbs. She’s no where near the weight limit for the baby wrap, so it might just work.

The Verdict

I tried the Baby Wrap on one of my oldest daughter’s dolls for practice until I was comfortable using it, and I chose a doll that was actually a tad bit larger than either of my girls were as newborns (we have photos of each girl with the doll to prove it!). The included instructions were great, but it took me a few tries to get the technique down.

Once I was satisfied that I could properly tie the wrap to securely hold the baby, I asked my friend to join me for a walk to try out the Baby Wrap with her 7 month old.  I carried the 7 month old (who weighs the same as my toddler) around for an hour with no problems. She was tucked safely and securely against my chest while we went for a walk around the local park, and she even fell asleep snugly tucked into the Baby Wrap.  We were both happy with the results, and my friend was sold on buying one of her own. In my opinion the Baby Wrap is a great way to keep your baby safe, secure, and provide the nurturing that comes with carrying your baby so close.

Unfortunately my experience with Aubrey and the Baby Wrap wasn’t so enjoyable. She may weigh the same as the 7 month old, but the experience was completely different.

First, I had trouble getting a squirming toddler properly situated inside the wrap. After a few tries we made it happen, and things only went downhill from there. Aubrey’s constant squirming continued to loosen the wrap no matter how tightly I wrapped it and tied it around my waist. Within a few minutes she was riding dangerously low, in my opinion, practically sitting on my hips.  I attempted to use the wrap two more time with Aubrey, and each time ended with the same results. I eventually gave up and decided the Baby Wrap doesn’t work with a squirming toddler, at least not mine!

If you’re looking for a great, comfortable wrap to use with a smaller baby I would definitely recommend the Baby More Co. Baby Wrap. But, if you’re looking for a wrap to use with toddler like mine who likes to squirm, I would have to say look elsewhere.
