Reader Appreciation Giveaway: Bibbles Bibs


Speaking of kids and food, I've got a little giveaway for you. It's from an adorable company that makes bibs that play music. The couple who created Bibbles Bibs says they found themselves singing to their babies to entertain them while eating so they decided to create a bib that not only keeps your kid clean but entertains too. Good call. Because who hasn't pretty much put on a Broadway musical to keep their baby or toddler focused on taking in just one more spoonful of food?

Now, instead of you providing the entertainment, the bib will do it for you. Bibbles Bibs play music that encourages your kid to count to ten, repeat the ABC's all the good stuff to entertain and educate. But it's not just for eating. Kids drool and bibs come in handy all the time. Keep the bib on while you're on the go. Baby fussing in the back seat? Squeeze the bib for some distraction tunes.



The other good thing about Bibbles is that the bibs are waterproof and have the little pocket at the bottom of the bib to catch all the food that doesn't make it into your kid's mouth, which, if you have any experience at all feeding kids you know more food makes it onto the bib or your kid than into the mouth.

Bibbles Bibs are usually $15 but the company is offering The Girl Who readers a 15% discount if you purchase a bib using the discount code "Lancaster." Got a baby shower coming up? A three-pack of Bibbles at 15% off makes for an affordable, unique gift.

Today, I'm giving away a Baby Count To Ten bib, courtesy of Bibbles. To enter to win leave a comment (email included) telling me your baby's first word. If you don't have a baby tell me your first word, if you know it. Winner announced Thursday.

The first word for my oldest was "Brava!", that I could translate with "Good job!", while my youngest first said "pappa", in english "food". And growing up, the oldest one is always eager to get our approval, while the youngest one is always asking for more food, so I guess those words were not chosen by chance... :)

I am currently pregnant with my first, a baby girl due May 9th!

My first word was bow, as in hair bow. My Mom would put them in my hair everyday and I always loved to play with them, too. That's also how I learned to count to 10!

I adopted my husband's daughter and never actually had a "baby" until our granddaughter was born - although I'm not old our - daughter is 20. But granddaughter's first word was "bird."

I wish I could say that I was so advanced that my first word was shit, or worse. But "mama" was it. Oh, well. I'm trying to teach all my nieces the good "swears".

i'm pregnant and I hope my baby's first word will be momma. But sure it will be shit or something else that i say all the time.

My first word was dada.

My son's first word was "dada"...but he called everything dada not just his pops. Just turned a year and said "mama" clearly for the first time today...several times. Small victory. :)

My baby hasn't said his first word yet, but he's getting good at his M's, B's and D's. He loves to push buttons and make things make noise, so I'm sure he'd love this!

Hmmm, first word of first was Hodgey (cat's name), second was Papa, third was Mama and number 4 was also Mama....which is particularly entertaining because my husband keeps trying to get him to say Papa and every single time the little guy says MAMA and then laughs :)

Boring, but true. My first word was Dad.

Well, my first child's first word was dada (of course), he's too old for bibs - but his little sister should be here in 2 months...would love to win :)

My baby girl's first word, said while she was sleeping, was hey!

Recently she said pizza, it cracked us up. Maybe she wants to try that next haha?

My son hasn't said his first word yet - we're betting it's going to be Miller - our dog! Ha ha.
