We've tried dozens of bibs over the years and the Bumkins are our all time favorites. All of the Bumkins bibs I have tried have been easy to care for and have held up well over time. I particularly like the Junior Bib and the Short Sleeve Art Smock-they fully cover both baby's chest and baby's lap and the sleeves help keep baby from pulling the bib off.

Starter Bib: This is a nice enough bib but it's so small that it's not useful for long at least with the way my kids eat (not only do they get plenty of food on their chests but they also drop tons of food down into their lap which this bib doesn't catch even with the pocket). The bib is 8 inches across and 6.5 inches long. My kids also quickly learned how to pull this bib off by reaching back and undoing the velcro.

Super Bib: This is a bigger version of the started bib at 10 inches across and 9 inches down. It works better than the starter bib but still doesn't totally cover baby's lap and can be pulled off relatively easily.

Supersized Super Bib: This is roughly 18 inches across and 18 inches down. It does a good job of completely covering baby's lap but it's oddly shaped and tapers in in the middle which means it doesn't really cover the sides of their torso. It's also easy to pull off.

Bumkins Junior Bib: This measures 14.5 across (not counting the sleeves) and 14 inch down. It does a good job of fully covering babies/toddlers and the sleeves mean they can't just reach up and pull it off.

Bumkins Short Sleeved Art Smock: This is basically a bigger version of the junior bib. It measures 17 across and 20 inches long making it a great choice for older toddlers/preschoolers. Again the sleeves mean you can't just reach up and pull it off. It also has a tie around the waist to hold it in place.

This bib is absolutely fantastic! I've used other Bumkins bibs and have LOVED those too. However, my 14 month old daughter was able to pull them off and throw them on the floor while she was eating. This Bumkins Junior Bib gives more coverage and my daughter is unable to pull it off. This bib is a life (and clothes) saver!

As a mom of twins I only tend to like products that make my life simpler. These are my favorite bibs for three reasons:

1. No hand washing! This bib is truly machine washable and _does not_ have a plastic layer to crack and wear out like other cheaper bibs. Thus no replacement costs down the road. This make the higher investment up front well worth it. I have even accidentally put these bibs in the dryer and they are no worse for wear.

2. I love the themes! The Dr. Seuss themes are silly and my daughters can relate to them from their books. The other themes, dogs, farm, bugs, flowers are all bright and cheery. My daughters love to point to their bib and make their animal sounds.

3. They are huge! The bibs completely cover my daughters from neck to knee. (The twins are 16 months old.) This is especially handy when they are eating in their car seats on the go.

We own 3 Bumkins Waterproof Junior Bibs (Animal, Pet Parade, and another one I don't know the name of). We have used the Junior sized bib since our son was about 12 months old and we still use these bibs at 26 months. It still comes down almost to his waist at 36 inches tall. These bibs are a thin, soft plastic with arm holes, Velcro to attach it at the back of the neck, and a pocket in front to catch falling foods/liquids. The bib covers the front and sides of my skinny son's torso and his shoulders.

We have had no trouble with any of the bibs. We machine wash them after two or three days of use and just wipe off any excess in between. We used to clean with a soapy cloth when we first got them but we feel it isn't necessary now.

He does not mind putting his arms into it but he does have trouble taking it off by himself and is sometimes frustrated by it. He has started getting into his chair by himself, and if he is wearing the bib already then his knees often catch the bib and give him trouble getting into the chair. This is a recent development and was not an issue the first year we used these bibs.

Pros:
*Good coverage without being in the way.
*Water proof. We haven't thoroughly tested this thanks to sippy cups.
*Sturdy - has never torn or cracked. Velcro has held up through many washes.
*Easy to clean - wipe with a paper towel or rag, use soap if needed, machine wash. We even machine dry though it says not to on the label.
*Portable - folds easily for stuffing into purse or large pocket. It is handy to take to a restaurant and fold the dirty side into itself so food and sticky bits don't get in Mommy's purse.
*Pocket at the bottom to catch falling food.
*Difficult for child to remove on their own.
*Fun prints - encourages my kid to want to wear it and also served as an emergency distraction until he was old enough for crayons and other table toys (like my iPhone).

Cons:
*Large surface area may get in the way of climbing onto a chair/booth.
*Difficult for child to remove on their own.

Overall Mommy and I rate them 5/5 stars because of the coverage, folded size, and ease of cleaning as compared to cloth bibs.

The only complaint I have about the bib is that the pocket on the front is sewn together to create two pockets. I know this is because it is marketed as a toddler bib that can be used for arts and crafts. I carefully and sucessfully cut the thread to creat one huge pocket on the front. I wanted to use this for my 11month old as a meal time bib. The bib completely covers him and the big pocket I altered catches all the messy stuff! I no longer have to throw him in the tub after every meal. The bib also cleans up easily and is ready for the next meal without having to put it in the washing machine. I love it and will buy another one for backup!

I'm only giving this 4 stars because we never use the sleeves even though we need them. We definitely need the sleeve area of protected from food stains for our little one but it's just too much of a hassle putting the arms in. Besides that, this is the best bib i've used, and I've bought a lot of different bibs. Save your money, buy this one from the beginning. I bought cheap ones which would be hard to clean, would get stinky, the plastic would tear and scratch the baby and his clothes would still get dirty. Also, because this bib is not made of harder plastic, i can quickly slip it on my little guy before he has a chance to protest. And the patterns are so trendy! Just beware, these things are quite long. They come to my son's knees (he's 16 months old).

I bought these bibs for my twin grandchildren because their mother loved the long sleeved ones so much. With the weather so much warmer, long sleeves were sometimes too hot. We were disappointed to find these bibs have Velcro closures instead of the tie closures mentioned in the product description. (this is a quote from the description: "This full coverage bib features a catch all pocket and tie closure.") She prefers the ties because she has found that the Velcro doesn't hold as well after several washes. I hope they haven't made this a permanent change.

I wish I used these from the beginning. My daughter loves to eat and is a very messy eater. I used to have to put a burp cloth or kitchen towel in her lap and around her waist and then a bib on top of that. This bib covers her well onto her lap, her shoulder area and the pocket on the bottom catches crumbs. It's so easy to clean too. I just wipe it down after she eats and at the end of the day I quickly wash it with dish soap and hang it to dry. I only have two and it works out great. I used to have a basket full of bibs and go through about 3 or 4 a day.

I wish I'd known about these bibs when my daughter first started eating solids because I would've saved a lot of time cleaning up. They cover her shoulders and really are waterproof. She's even spilled soup down the front of her and her clothes stayed clean. I highly recommend them!

I started with the Bumkins terrycloth bibs to act as a drool-catcher for my infant. But these take the cake, so to speak. They are the best bibs ever for solids feedings. They cover baby like a smock and salvage the clothes underneath. They rinse clean and are dry by the next feeding.
