Say Goodbye to Mealtime Mess With These Silicone Bibs (and Where to Get Them in Hong Kong)
by: The Beat Asia
Now that you’ve found yourself a good high chair for your little one, next in line is to get some feeding essentials. Mealtimes are messy when babies start to learn how to eat on their own, but that’s okay! It’s part of the process. The problem, however, is the aftermath. Who’s going to clean up all that food? Not to mention, doing the laundry is extra tricky because your kid has most likely stained their bibs and clothes.
To save you from all that hassle, why not get a silicone bib? This baby essential is designed to have a pocket so no food will drop on your little one’s clothes while eating. If you want to eliminate unwanted food waste and do less laundry, you can get a good silicone bib brand from these Hong Kong stores.
Established in 1989, BEABA has revolutionised children’s nutrition with a single goal: “To help parents provide the best for their baby, stress-free.” The brand offers a wide range of feeding items, such as plates, bowls, cups, and utensils.
Their silicone bibs are made of light silicone material and have adjustable neck fasteners and a wide catch pocket. Get one for your baby in colour pink, blue green, or gray for HK$79 at mothercare or Baby Central. A pack of two is also available for HK$125 at BabyOnline. (Bonus: BEABA also offers a soft training bib that uses a cloth ribbon for the neck.)
BabyBjörn is a Swedish family-owned company founded in 1961 that specialises in manufacturing and marketing baby products. The brand has received many awards for its innovative designs, allowing them to expand worldwide, including Hong Kong.
Their silicone Baby Bibs are free of bisphenol A (BPA) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and are made of soft plastic to avoid chafing the neck. The neckband is fully adjustable, and the deep spill pocket holds its shape so it’s good to use even if your little one is being playful.
Get a Baby Bib in powder blue, green, pink, or yellow for HK$109 at mothercare, Baby Central, or BabyBjörn’s official website. If you don’t mind buying a slightly used product, you can get a cheaper piece for HK$50 at Retykle.
Snapkis is a brand dedicated to providing simple and smart solutions for parents and creating delight in everyday parenting. They offer baby care and weaning products, travel accessories and essentials, and baby car seats that meet relevant safety standards.
Their Oh-So-Soft Silicone Bibs are made of food-grade plastic, which have been checked by leading testing, inspection, and certification company SGS (Société Générale de Surveillance, or General Society of Surveillance). They’re also BPA-free, water-resistant, and top-rack dishwasher safe.
Little Caleb is owned by a California-based fashion jewelry company, which decided to expand their market in 2016 and launched a baby jewelry and accessories line. The brand offers teething products and other baby accessories made from 100% food-grade silicone rubber.
Their silicone bibs are anti-bacterial and free of BPA, PVC, lead, and phthalate. They’re also adjustable and easy to clean with warm soapy water. Get a cute design and checkout a piece for HK$100 at Baby Central or Little Caleb’s official website.
