jjcolebibCame across these adorable bibs on JJcole a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with the rich colors and mod designs. No cutesy light pinks or baby blues. Just artsy and whimsical designs that pop.

I ordered the larger bibs in cocoa tree and blue vine and the soft bibs in green birds and green circles. Happy to say they were every bit as good in person as they are here in the photos.  The fabric is think and seems durable, especially for the price Рwhich is only like $5-$6 each.

You can also buy matching burp cloths and muslin blankets or mix-and-match with the other prints in your color scheme.

The only problem I can find with these bibs is that the kids will wear them and mess them up. ūüôā Darn kids.

You can purchase the JJcole bibs, burps, blankets, towels and a ton more at their web site – JJColeCollections.com.

bib How hard can it be to find a good bib? As it turns out…pretty darn difficult!

Hate to break it to you but those cute little teeny tiny bibs you get at your baby shower turn out to be pretty useless when the food starts flying. And despite my many attempts to like those waterproof bibs with the pocket that catches the food, I despise them! How do you wipe food remnant off a little  face with one of those?  

Luckily, I found the perfect bib at one of my favorite online spots, baby star. These bibs are plenty big enough to take on the sticky syrup drips from Jack’s morning pancakes. Plus, like all of baby star’s stuff, you can choose from a whole array of bright, colorful and unique fabric designs with no duckies, bunnies or sassy quotes in sight. kaleid

They are also thicker than your standard bib and the back is lined with a soft courduroy which not only looks cute, but the extra weight helps keep the bib from turning into a bib-ball in the wash.

Really, the only thing stopping me from raiding their entire supply is the price – $17.99.¬†Usually, I can get about 3-4 bibs for this price but nowhere near the quality – so that’s the trade-off.

I ended up with the Kaleidoscope and Hopscotch Blue designs for the boys. Which design(s)do you like the best?
