How is the Car Seat Bib better than a regular bib?

Unlike other bibs on the market, the Car Seat Bib combines an ultra absorbent layer with a waterproof layer. It quickly catches and soaks up messes while keeping children and their car seats clean. The oversized design covers the child from neck to legs and the carseat from edge-to-edge.

Will the Car Seat Bib catch spit up when my child gets car sick?

The Car Seat Bib was specifically designed with car sick kids in mind. It rests comfortably over the child’s body and most of their car seat. It’s crafted to quickly catch and absorb spit up or spills without letting them soak through. The result: Children stay clean and dry, and so do their car seats. 

Why doesn't the Car Seat Bib have a pocket?

Pockets that catch vomit are messy, gross, and hard to clean. That’s why the Car Seat Bib is pocket-free, but ultra-absorbent! Learn more.

How do I clean the Car Seat Bib?

After a messy incident, simply remove the Car Seat Bib, wipe off any solids, and toss it in the wash at home.

Is it safe?

The Car Seat Bib goes on like a traditional bib. It’s worn over car seat buckles, so that it won’t interfere with car seat functionality or safety.

Car Seat experts, called Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs), confirm that wearing a bib is safe in the car, if done correctly.

Only use the Car Seat Bib when an adult is able to monitor the child to make sure that the fabric doesn’t interfere with breathing if the child falls asleep or shifts the bib’s position. This can be done through existing mirrors in the car, by looking back to check, or sitting in the back with the child.

The Car Seat Bib is made in the USA with organic, hypo-allergenic, BPA-free, PFAS-free, PFOA-free, CPSIA certified, eco-friendly fabric from American textile mills that meets all safety standards for children’s products.

Will it stay on?

Kids can’t pull their Car Seat Bib off easily, thanks to the thick Velcro® strips that fasten it. Caregivers can easily remove it.

Can we use it outside the car?

Yes, please do! The Car Seat Bib works wonderfully as a feeding bib and as a smock during messy art projects.

My Car Seat Bib just arrived and doesn’t seem absorbent when I tested it.

Please wash the Car Seat Bib by itself using hot water in your washing machine, with or without detergent, and dry it on medium temperature. This activates the absorbent layer.
