Bebe Belay

The Bebe Belay is my new favorite piece of baby gear. We are often out-and-about in the summer during lunchtime, and in the past I found myself toting along a full-sized bib for pizza/ketchup -protection. Recently, my "diaper-bag bib" was relegated back to the bib drawer, and has been replaced in my diaper bag by this cute little clip. Each side of the Bebe Belay attaches to the side of a napkin, instantly transforming it into a bib.

I have used this with fast-food napkins, cloth napkins, and even a baby wipe (in a pinch) and it has worked like a charm. The little clasps take a little getting used to- you have to lift a piece up before they can be pinched to open, and then fold the piece down to lock the belay in place. Once you have got the hang of it, you have an instant bib on your hands.



My kids have never taken a pacifier, but I imagine that this other Bebe Belay feature would come in very handy if they did. The Belay can also be used as a pacifier clip. You string the Bebe Belay through the handle of the pacifier, and then clip it back onto a piece of ribbon that is attached to the Belay. Hurray for multi-functional baby gear!

You can find the Bebe Belay at Innovative Baby, Paisley Monkey, bestdressedkids, and a several other retail shops throughout the US. The Bebe Belay retails for around $9-12.50.

Who wants to try out a Bebe Belay?!? Three lucky citrus readers will win their very own Bebe Belay and their own Mommy Hook! Yay for free ultra-useful gear!

That's a really smart product

aprilmay said...

This is a great idea. My baby just started eating solids and who wants to put a messy bib back in the diaper back afterwards? I would love one.

Kristie said...

Great Idea, thanks for all the good things you guys find.

Brooke said...

I love the idea of not losing the pacifier. And it would save money on those disposable bibs. Sounds like a product I could definitely use.

jenna and kreed said...

Okay I really need this. I always forget bibs. Such a cute idea.

Em and Ms said...

We were just trying to use a napkin as a bib the other day--it didn't stay on too well! I also lost 3 pacifiers in one day. Please pick me to win this one!

I love it!!! I really like that it is multi- functional, and that means less items I have to tote around with me! I need a few!!

Kim and Nathan said...

Great product idea.

Holly said...

My child is always running around with food on him because I never have a bib. This is perfect! I also need the mommy hook for my jogger that doesn't have a fastener to keep it closed. Again perfect!

Julie said...

Very clever--I like it!

Dave and Mandy said...

Okay, I love this gadget! Count me in! - Mandy

Emily said...

This is great! One less bulky item in my diaper bag the better!

I have a smaller carabeener {sp??} on my purse that I use to hook my keys on when I'm out and about. It's so nice to not have to dig for keys. A big one for shopping, etc would be awesome! thanks!

Ben Cluff said...

Perfect for eating out, and very little storage. Love it!

Rachel said...

That looks great! :) I would love it!

Melissa said...

Love to win these useful items! Making sure I had a bib everywhere I went with our first little one got to be a bit tedious. Open to a new solution!

Matt and Doreen said...

Ever since I saw that mommy hook I have been thinking of how handy it would be!

Brianne said...

Very cool! I would love to win one of these!

Mama J said...

woohoo!

laurel said...

Great stuff!!!

Hiatt Family said...

Love the idea! Much less space in a diaper bag/purse and I wouldn't have to take the messy bib home...sweet! Reminds me of the dentist's office...

Ricki said...

I've been having that very problem a lot lately, not having a bib on hand and trying to magic one out of a napkin alone. Yeah, this is a great idea!

Alice-Anne said...

I could use these...esp for the ever falling out pacifer.

Dawnell said...

I'd love to ditch the bib for a small clip.

kjerstina said...

yee-haw! I need one for me!
