There is such a bib – and it took a frustrated mum to come up with it. Perth businesswoman Justine Barsley knew there was a better solution than boring bibs that didn’t do the job.
“My eldest daughter was a constant dribbler and I found the bibs available just weren’t good enough to cope. After speaking with other mums I found they were disappointed with the bibs they had too,” Ms Barsley said.
“My friends said they wanted a bib that was absorbent, wasn’t thin and flimsy and didn’t have the usual cartoonish pictures. They also needed bibs that weren’t secured with Velcro, because babies can pull them off easily and they snagged in the wash.
“After a lot of research I created an attractive bib to solve these problems,” she said.
Oli B Designs’ bibs are:
• Come in lots of funky prints, such as Cupcakes and Blue and Pink Sea Theme
• Made from pure, washable cotton
• Secured by threading a knot through a buttonhole – easy for mums to get on and off, but hard for bubs
• Backed with super-absorbent towelling.
“Mums say they love the designs and can feel the bibs are good quality because they are so thick and soft. Many love them so much they buy them as gifts for friends’ and relatives’ children,” Ms Barsley said.
Oli B bibs retail for $14.95 and are available online at www.olibdesigns.com.au, or sold at Perth Upmarket and selected retailers.
