*Celebrate Baby* Bamboobino Review & Giveaway [Ends 3/24]


Bamboobino is a mom-owned Vancouver, BC (yay!) based company. Sharon, the owner, has been using bamboo products in her household for years and wanted to share this wonderful fabric with the rest of us. Bamboobino's products are actually made with USDA-certified organic bamboo, which makes it that much better!

Bamboobino product line is best suited for very little ones and nursing mothers. From bamboo crib sheets to no-scratch mittens and baby washcloths, they have everything babies need in the first year and after.

I personally only recently discovered that clothes can be made out of bamboo and it actually makes for a very thick and soft material. I have a couple of bamboo receiving blankets in my collection and I've used them way more than the cotton ones. Because of their softness, I used them to make the crib softer and more comfortable for my little guy when he was just a tiny baby.



For my review, I received a blue pocket bib. These bamboo bibs come in three colors and are absorbent and reversible. This bib is fairly big in size, it's definitely a bib for feeding, not just drooling :) It's very soft and has a towel-like feel/texture to it. Front has a pocket/crumb-catcher at the bottom. Back has a cute Bamboonino logo. What I love about this bib is that it closes with a button not a Velcro strip. I rarely use bibs these days, because it takes the little guy a second to rip them off. This one will stay on for good. It fits comfortably and covers the chest and the tummy well.

The pocket bib retails for $18 which is a bit more expensive than I would usually pay for a bib. But I realize that I would be paying for organic bamboo material and not a mass-produced item, but an item in which the creator has put a lot of love. Bamboo material actually lasts longer than cotton thus it doesn't have to be replaced as often.

Bib came with a tag which taught me some information about why bamboo is good. I found it very interesting and decided to share it so you can learn too.

Why Choose Bamboo?
  • It's more absorbent than cotton
  • It's hypoallergenic - great for sensitive skin
  • Its cashmere-like softness is great for babies
  • It comfortably wicks moisture away from skin
  • It's easy to care for - just machine wash and tumble dry
  • The bamboo plant is a highly renewable resource that grows without pesticides or fertilizers
  • Bamboo is a grass that possesses a property called "bamboo kun" which is naturally anti-bacterial

Shipping to Canada is $9.95 and if you are shopping from US, you can use their US website.

One lucky winner will receive a pocket bib of their choice (RV $18)

The baby gift basket would be just lovely to send to some faraway friends who are expecting (maybe with the stuffed panda for the older bro!).

Thanks for the chance for win!

I would have to say I like the hooded enclosed wrap. I just think wraps make babies feel so safe and secure and I love the hood included in it.
