Moderngear Baby: The best bib you can get

Dr. Penelope Leach, psychologist and author of Your Baby and Child: From Birth to Age Five (Revised Edition), said that "Loving a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop. The more you give the more you get and the more you get the more you feel like giving."

I think that almost the same thing can be said of feeding a baby, like, "Feeding a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop. The more you give the more you get (on her shirt, your face, the wall, etc.)"...the second part of the quote is where this analogy sort of breaks down ("...and the more you get the more you feel like giving.")

Everyone likes to see a happy baby eat well, but for the mess. If it was just slightly easier to clean up, that would certainly help.

How about easier to clean up AND super stylish? It's almost too good to be true, but Mally Bibs fit the bill perfectly. Where to start...well, they're easy-to-clean, that's one feature that sets these adorable bibs apart from the others. Made of leather, they're good-as-new with a quick wipe-down or a run under the tap, so you don't have to throw the bib in the wash after every messy experience.
They're durable and won't fall apart after a few wearings and washings, reversible, and perhaps the best part is that they're comfortable for baby. The magnetic clasp at the neck is brilliant on three levels:

1. It won't get tangled in in baby's hair like velcro can.
2. The neck closing is adjustable.
3. The magnets mean you can hang the bib, when not in use, on your fridge door so you'll always know where it is when you need it.

This is one of the most brilliantly designed products I have ever discovered - one that I have known about since its inception a few years ago. All of Mally Bibs are now available in both baby and toddler size, and the only issue I would ever have is deciding on what design for the front! I guess you have to decide - is the baby you're buying this for a nature lover:

a flower child
a hipster
a guitar hero
a fireman
someone who eats his veggies
or a patriot?
Mally Bibs are a Canadian product, and can be found in stores across North American and into other parts of the world as well. Baby bibs are $32.95 and toddler bibs $38.95.

Go to to find out more about the company, and undertake the incredibly difficult task of deciding which one you'd like!
