Cotton jersey baby bib with modern guitar patternIt’s still a little depressing to put a really ugly bib over a really cute outfit, if not as depressing as staining the really cute outfit with carrots. Problem solved: b amici’s beautiful cotton bibs are like wee accessories themselves.

Made of soft cotton jersey with cool print accents, they are both subtle and funky. The fabric is just beautiful, even if you can’t entirely tell from the pictures on the site; the guitar bib pictured here is a designer Michael Miller fabric, while the rest of the line features Liberty of London prints (including a super cute car print).

I love the thoughtful design too; each bib secures with Velcro, although they are styled to look like they button on.

These aren’t necessarily everyday bibs — after all, they’re light colored, which is always dangerous — but the designers do say they hold up to laundering and stain removers. Still, they’re a nice alternative for meals where you know someone will have a camera out. Or baby showers. Where you know everyone will have a camera out. -Susan
