What better way to show love for a little one than a bib filled up with hearts? And this bib’s smaller size makes it great for catching both food spills and teething-induced drool! 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. And it fits on over baby’s head, so it’s hard for wee ones to take off by themselves!
