These bibs have a plush cotton toweling front that is very absorbent and soft, and a waterproof backing that is soft and comfortable not stiff and crunchy like other bibs. These bibs have a two position snap closure with a unique snuggle neck leak guard that helps prevent liquids from going down the child’s neck. Snap closures last longer than hook-n-loop closures and they won’t trap hair. It is also much more difficult for the child to pull the bib off. These are very high quality bibs that will last wash after wash!
