*I received this product in exchange for a review, however all opinions are my own.
The owner and creator of Freckle Baby, Kim, contacted me recently about reviewing one of her awesome bibs and promoting Freckle Baby's Kickstarter launch, and I immediately knew I wanted to endorse this product.
Luke was the spit up king and was pretty much always wearing a bib when he was a baby. Thank goodness Ellie hasn't been too bad in the spit up department, but she still doesn't have any teeth... which means those bad boys are working extra hard to pop through soon and Ellie is constantly drooling. Bibs are awesome at absorbing all that drool. Luckily, Freckle Baby bibs still look cute covered in drool. ;)
The bibs are 100% Organic Cotton and super soft. They currently come in four different color schemes. I'm really digging the mustard color (I'm kind of obsessed with yellow!), and I love the pink color combo that Kim sent us (I'm loving pink + berry lately, too. OK, actually I really love all of the colors.).
But aside from the cute factor, what I really love most about them are their functionality. They essentially solve the "on-demand fetch routine" dilemma us parents fall victim to every day ;), by allowing you to use the "leash" to attach a toy or pacifier to the bib. You can tell that they were designed by a mom, right?! ;) As soon as I put the bib on Ellie, she immediately plopped the attached toy right into her mouth. Everything always goes right into the mouth at this age.
She was also able to crawl all over the house with her toy still attached to her and always at arms reach if she wanted it.
They are really well-made and seem like they will hold up to the test of time- and multiple washings. ;)
Oh, and they are reversible, too! See!
^I love Ellie's cute little baby hand in the top corner there. :)
Freckle Baby also makes beautiful (also 100% Organic cotton) baby blankets, hats and gift sets. These sets would make the perfect gift for an expecting or new mama (I have so many pregnant friends right now!).
All Freckle Baby items are currently available for pre-sale through the Kickstarter campaign. If you aren't familiar with it, Kickstarter is a way to help fund creative projects and new companies. Their mission is to "help bring creative projects to life". Kim's creative project is Freckle Baby and she is using Kickstarter to spread the word about Freckle Baby and get funded so she can start a larger production. The campaign must reach their funding $ goal to be able to receive the funds raised.
If you pre-order now through Kickstarter, you can get them at a huge discount! The Kickstarter campaign runs through April 7th, so hurry over and snag one (or just get them in every color). The first 100 people can pre-order 2 bibs for $20 (normally a $36 value) or get a gift set for $36 (normally a $60 value)! You can pledge a certain amount of money to help the Kickstarter campaign and receive custom products from Freckle Baby, as well!
I absolutely love supporting small businesses, especially my fellow mamas. Kim has the most adorable family ever and we also discovered I grew up in the same area that she currently resides in with said adorable family (and she's LDS like me, too!).
See how cute Kim and her family are in the Freckle Baby Kickstarter video here and checkout how awesome these bibs are! Take a moment to support this mama and get Freckle Baby launched... and solve all of your on-demand fetch routine problems. :) I totally think Kim should take Freckle Baby to Shark Tank. My husband and I love that show!

P.S. Ellie turned 9 months old last Friday, the 13th! I was out of town visiting family in California this weekend, so I am behind on her post.... I will get that up in the next few days! :)
