Zombies and babies have one thing in common – they are very messy eaters! Whether the cause of your personal laundry apocalypse is pablum or brains, a good bib can make all the difference. And this one has a lot of advantages. It’s reversible, so you can flip it for the next feeding if the first side gets messy. It’s double-thick, so it’s extra-absorbent. It fits on over baby’s head, so it’s hard for wee ones to take off by themselves – even the crawling dead! And if your ravenous little monster is still hungry after their meal, the bib even has a finger for them to suck…or gnaw on, depending on their preference, of course.

(In lieu of actual brains, try blobs of tomato sauce for that lovely gory look!)
