Pepper Skye Bandana Bib Review

Disclaimer: I received this bandana bib free of charge and was not paid to review this bib. I could have been a huge jerk and never reviewed it. But I'm not. I can't do that, it's wrong.

I was recently sent a bib to review for my blog. It came from Pepper Skye. I'm going to quote the little About blurb I received with the bib:
"We make bibs, not your average bib for getting all nasty at meal times. We make bibs to keep our clothes dry while we are babbling and chewing on things. Our bibs are designed to soak up drool, slobber and slime of a busy day being babies. They are stylish, colorful, easy for mom to look after, and they keep my clothes dry!"
Something else to note about the bibs, is that from each purchase, 5% is donated to children's charities both in NH (the home state of the company) and throughout the U.S. I think that's pretty cool.

My son, Little PGS, is over a year old, so not quite the target audience for these bibs. But that didn't stop me from putting it on him as soon as it came in the mail. We were sent the "A Starry Skye" bib and I thought it was adorable. The fleece backing was so soft, even after washing it's still super soft and fun to touch. I love the light, bright blue fleece backing and the starry print is boyish without being the typical sport or car theme. A huge plus in my book.
While it's supposed to be more for drool-y, teething babies, PGS wore it to protect from spaghetti sauce at Bob Evan's. It worked great. Before that, it was just a stylish accessory to his otherwise adorable outfit.
Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of PGS in the bib that I can share on here. But I did get a few pictures of someone wearing the bib, scroll down to the end of the post to see the super cute bib in action.

In conclusion, I'd totally recommend this product. And am even planning on buying one or two for my niece!

Now for the fun part. Pictures!

12 months update!

Last night we took PGS to O'Charley's for dinner and he got the kids' shrimp dinner. That was interesting. And I learned that we really need to start having the video camera ready when we try a new food. He tried his shrimp and his reaction was too funny. He shuddered, made a disgusted face and threw the shrimp. lol Silly boy. (Btw, I hate shrimp. I've never liked it. But I thought it was a good idea to try the shrimp. I involuntarily reacted the same way PGS did. lol)

This morning, during his usual naked time to air out his nether regions after being in a night time diaper for 12 hours, he started grunting like he was gonna poo on my floor. So I put him on the toilet and he pooed in the toilet! I clapped and said, "yay!"
Then he was running around clapping and saying, "aaaaaay!"
It was adorable. ♥ It's so sad that my life has boiled down to being excited when my child takes a crap in the toilet. But hey, the sooner he figures this out, the sooner I can stop diapers. ;) Because he's not ready to start potty training, we're just passively potty training. Introducing him to the concept, but not expecting him to pick it up right away. But I do think it's time to go buy him a potty or a potty seat.

The little guy is one year old now. He had his 12 month well visit yesterday. Good news, he's not anemic! He's also started to thin out, for the first time in his life, he was not in the 90-95th percentile for weight. He's in the 75th for weight, 50th for length/height and 90th for head circumference. He's still my solid, short little guy with a big head. lol
