Full Coverage...and Comfort
As most moms and dads will tell you, many babies manage to get more food slopped across their clothes than actually in their bellies. What makes Baggino Learner's Bibs unique is that they feature long sleeves and an extra long front-just where babies tend to make the biggest mess. The Velcro closure and elasticized cuffs help secure the sleeves.
Best Feature: Babies stay comfy and moms don't have to worry about spills during mealtime.
