The Best Baby Bib I've Used

Thanks to Disney for sponsoring this post and giving me the Bumkins Bib for free.

Having parented small children for nearly four years now, I’ve tried more bibs than I can almost believe.

I’ve used washable bibs and terrycloth bibs. My girls have worn handmade bibs and bibs that came free with coordinating outfits. We have snap bibs and Velcro bibs.

But this Bumkins bib is hands-down the best bib I’ve ever used.

It’s extremely light and folds up really small (which makes it great for taking when you’re going out to dinner or on vacation with a little one). It’s machine washable, has a little pocket, and comes in the most darling patterns.

My one-year-old likes to rip her bibs off, but she doesn’t even seem to notice this one. She eats her dinner and then I wash her hands, take off the bib and she’s spotless. I think I need about ten of these.

You probably know that feeling where you have to leave the house with your baby and you’re covered in spit-up, plus the circles under your eyes are in danger of causing a solar eclipse.

A Pale Pink Nursery Tour

When I saw this nursery designed by Abbey Kyhl, I immediately fell in love with it.

I love the pairing of the old-fashioned with modern touches, and I really love that it looks like something I could put together too. Sometimes, I see nurseries and I feel overwhelmed. This nursery is just so real, sweet, and perfect for welcoming a new baby home.

Four Charming Disney Princess Bodysuits

I don’t think I fully appreciated how CUTE a child in costume was until I had children of my own.

Now, it delights me whenever I see a child dressed up in public – you can tell they just LOVE their Buzz Lightyear wings or that Rapunzel wig, and they want everyone to see it.

These cute bodysuits mean the dressing up can start young; they’re easy to wear, soft and comfortable, plus they feature the “grow-an-inch” snaps which means they can wear them for even longer.
