New parents get often overwhelmed with the list of “necessary” baby products and their selection on the market. Which one does the best job? Which one is safe for my baby? Which one is Eco-friendly? Which one can I afford? How can I make the right choice when I’m so sleep deprived!
And then you come across a product that fulfills all your requirements and does even more than one job. Now that’s something worth sharing with others.
And that’s how I feel about this simple, yet smart and Eco-friendly baby bib by Californian company Tiny Doe. It’s not just a bib, it’s also a pacifier or a teether holder, and babies love it. From my own experience, babies hate having anything hanging on their necks. My little one will not keep a bib unless I put it on while distracting him. But once I put a Tine Doe on, he was amused and never complained since.
And what’s the story behind the Tiny Doe?
I asked Lisa Paschke, one of the company founders.
Hi! I’m Lisa. Lauren and I are lifelong friends and have always wanted to work together. We decided to start Tiny Doe after we came up with an amazing product- a must-have if there’s a baby in your life.
Here’s how it all started. First my aunt made a cute pacifier holder for my baby, Evelyn. Then Evelyn started teething and drooling everywhere. My mom made me some drool bibs, but Evelyn still needed her pacifier to soothe her little gums. So I asked my mom to blend the two ideas and our binky bib was born! Lauren and I tried several different designs and fabrics to come up with the best combination for absorption and, of course, it had to be cute. It’s reversible, adjustable, and quiet to remove when she’s sleeping because we use snaps instead of Velcro. You can even attach small toys. Now Evelyn always has a pacifier nearby and her clothes are clean and dry! Such a lifesaver!
You can check out the bounty of these cute and funky design patterns on their website tinydoe.com.
In honor of Independence Day, we decided to give away two lovely pieces to two happy moms (or dads).
