Tartan patterns are wonderful for babies – you can go with subtle, soft colours for a delicate look; bright, vibrant colours for a cheerful look; or mix and match! No matter what your colour choices end up being, this bib is wonderful for mealtimes. 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!
