Our baby dislikes spoons and being fed. She loves getting down to it on her own and smash the food in her hands, hence the kitchen looks like a food fight zone after every meal. We've tried several different bibs, amongst which the foldable tommee tippee, the sleeveless and the sleeved bibetta, and this babybjorn one is our favourite.
Easy to clean (and therefore always ready to use again) and does not stain or discolour, easy to put on but not easy for our baby to take off (she has managed that with the bibetta's), keeps her dry because it is made of plastic and the neck is adjustable and it catches the biggest chuncks that fall from her hands or the spoon.
Negatives> it's not as portable as the others as it cannot be folded. Sleeveless. A little bit stiff and therefore gets a bit in the way when it bangs against the high chair seat.
In comparation: the tommee tippee one that comes with the explorer set got permanently stained with tomato sauce the first time we used it. The plastic is so soft it moves too much around and she ends up pulling on it and trying to get it off nearly imediately. She's not a fan, prefers to bite it.
The bibetta ones are very good, and we prefer the sleeved one because it helps keeping her clothes clean a bit longer, but they do need to be washed very frequently (they wash quite well, and have not lost shape yet) so they are just not as practical for us. We do take the sleeveless one out on tour everytime though. It is the very best when it comes to 'portable' bibs. Lastly the sleeved one makes her pull on the sleeves and grab her arms. Just doesn't seem to fit and be as comfy as a sweater.
The babybjorn colours and design are also beautiful. If you like that extra quality, it is likely the thing for you.
