Review & Giveaway: EcoAble Long Sleeved Bib with Crumb Catcher Pocket


Having two small children (4 years and 13 months), I am no stranger to the messes that come with them. Especially when it comes to mealtimes. Purees and sauces can fly across the room, don't you know? And then there's the general drooling mess while chewing on something when teething. Shirts get soaked. Laundry is done three times a day trying to keep up. In the end, I'm exhausted and adorable outfits are stained.

Most of my bibs simply don't cover enough area to really be worth having to wash them as well after every meal. Thankfully, EcoAble's new Long Sleeved Bib with Crumb Catcher Pocket has come to my rescue.

That's right, EcoAble, the cloth diaper company that Jackie has reviewed multiple times, now offers a long sleeved bib.

But, Jessica, how is a bib long sleeved? Doesn't it just go around the neck, and cover the minimal amount of shirt? Not if you're EcoAble!



This bib is in a smock style, so it actually covers the entire front of the shirt as well as having the long sleeves, and a velcro closure in the back at the neck. It also features a nifty little pocket crumb catcher, which helps to prevent the mess from getting onto the pants. This really is a full coverage bib!

The bib is one size, fitting 6 months to 2 years. My daughter is in 18 month clothing, and this fits perfectly: some room to grow, but not drowning her in fabric.

This bib is made of PUL fabric, which, if you're not into cloth diapering, is a waterproof laminated fabric that is easy to clean. Seriously, for the most part, you can just wipe the messes off of the bib with a washcloth. For when you do need to wash it, simply put the bib in the washer on a gentle cycle and air dry (although, I'll be honest, my washing machine does not have a gentle cycle, it has a cool and a hot cycle, so I just put it in cool with the rest of my laundry, and I've had no issues).

Now, you may think that air dry means it will take all day to dry out and be usable again, but that isn't so. Even here, in rainy Washington State, it only takes an hour to dry.

My absolute favorite part of this bib, hands down, has got to be the elastic at the wrists.

This little detail creates a seal around the hands, so zero mess finds its way onto the clothes underneath.

I've seen her little hands absolutely covered in mess, certain that the clothes below the bib are going to need a wash. I should not have worried! The elastic wrists do their job well!

I love this bib so much, I've even taken to having her wear it around the house before we go out, so if she decides to snack on something, I don't have to worry about her needing to change her clothes at the very last moment.

EcoAble believes that childhood should be a celebration, and that is certainly evident in their many adorable prints! With 18 different colors and prints to choose from, you can't go wrong. I decided to go with the birds print, and I was well rewarded. While it looked super cute online, it was nothing compared to how it looks on the baby. Not gonna lie, I squeed so hard when I first put it on her.

Adorable print + adorable baby = mommy making funny noises.

You can find your very own EcoAble bib in all of the adorable prints and colors online in their store or on Amazon for 14.99. I honestly think that every parent of a messy toddler (is there any other kind?) should have at least one.
