Testing Bibisili Bibs from Piccolo Bambino…Great Fun!

When I was pregnant we looked for local baby retailers and particularly wanted to find someone who stocked SkipHop products amongst others. We came across Piccolo Bambino just down the road in Northumberland. When we saw that PB were looking for product testers for the Bibisili bibs they stock we contacted Emily and she sent us Poppy Pig to test.


Why do we like them? Well as well as being funky and fun for toddler mealtimes they’re eco friendly, a must in this household! Made of 100% food grade silicone and lead, BPA and phthalates free they’re eco friendly, non toxic, odourless, flexible and harmless to baba’s skin.


We are big fans of the crumb catcher design, helping keep clothes clean but also making a handy pouch for dropped chunks of food, perfect for a messy tot!



We’ve used this for a week now, it’s seen some stubborn weetabix, messy sauce and plenty of crumbs but cleaned really well and a quick wipe between meals on the go means it’s portable too, no stains as yet and we eat a lot of tomato based sauces!

We like the adjustable neck, it’s a great design actually, others on the market are chunky for wee necks (some remind me of a neck brace, haha!!) and the adjustable hook and eye design keeps the bib in place preventing tugging hands from removing it, whilst giving room to move.

With loads of cool designs including Deano Dino and Sammy Seal you’re sure to find one (or two, or three!) for your little ones!

We’re famous….again!

We're famous....again!

I love magazines with a passion, glossy pages, snippets to dip into, I love to read blogs and I know paper is terribly bad for the environment, but I do share them with friends and make collages and recycle them after reading! We wrote into Prima Baby and they asked us to answer one of their Mum SOS questions, and here we are in print! Not my first foray into media but lovely to see our Jossy’s smiling wee face in the press!

Love Necessity Review

Love Necessity sells cloth nappies, and you know how much we like nappies! When I saw that LN were sewing up a storm and looking for testers for their baby and toddler wear I stepped in line to test a toddler dress with Jossy.

When the dress arrived I was delighted with the print, if you check them out on Facebook at #/LoveNecessityNappies?fref=ts I think you’ll agree that Andrea, the mama behind LN has a lovely eye for fabrics.


I often find that clothing for babies and toddlers in the shops is just too grown up, instead Andrea has chosen fun, colourful fabrics that are playful and well co-ordinated. As party dresses go, we tend not to go for the big and bulky but pared down and well made, the ruffles give it a party feel without being OTT. It more than accommodated Joss’ big big boosted nappies! The fabric itself is a lovely lightweight cotton, it washed and dried brilliantly – it’s been through the tumbler just fine, and is a lovely cool dress for these hot days we’ve been having, perfect stitching work and ruching to boot, it’s a lovely dress and has got lots of compliments at our Baby Social group!

Thanks Love Necessity for a really gorgeous dress!
