Bebe au Lait: Review & Giveaway

I am so excited to introduce you to one company that I love.  When both my girls were still in the nursing stage, I had the privilege to use the beautiful nursing covers from Bebe au Lait. They were not only beautiful but so practical. I was not a mom who was ever comfortable nursing in public so their nursing covers really helped me to stay within my comfort zone. Now that my girls are older and no longer nursing, I was very excited when I was able to do a product review with Bebe au Lait. 




Not only is Bebe au Lait known for nursing covers (both their Hooter Hiders and the Original Nursing Cover) that are chic and modern, but they also carry burp clothes, Double Reversible Bibs and Hooded Towels.


I was so excited when I found out that I would be reviewing both the Hooded Towel and the Double Reversible Bib.


About Bebe au Lait:


This family-owned, California USA-based company is known around the globe for their patented nursing covers for chic mothers. They’ve applied the same winning formula of pairing exceptionally beautiful prints with hard-working fabrics that are fashioned into products to meet the needs of modern, active parents by launching exclusive prints, the Double Bib, and the Ultimate Hooded Towels, one for babies and one for toddlers. Their worldwide and celebrity fan base continues to grow and they have become a reliable source for chic innovations.

Bébé au Lait. Style is Born.


About The Hooded Towel:



True to the Bébé au Lait signature of form-meets-function style, they have created the Ultimate Hooded Towel for infants. Bébé au Lait’s new Ultimate Hooded Towel for infants is an innovatively chic twist on a hard-working standard. Crafted in thirsty, 100% cotton terry, they are durable and machine washable so parents can use them at home after a bath, at the pool, or even at the beach time and time again.

“We wanted something that worked well for parents and was fully functional for the child as well--and it had to be beautiful. We started with some of our most popular prints and then tested many, many prototypes of towel designs to get the right balance. I feel that our Ultimate Hooded Towels have achieved our careful balance of quality, design and utility.” Claire Ekelund, Sr. VP of Product Development at Bébé au Lait.

Parents love them because they are generously sized so Baby can be dried off and swaddled to warm them up quickly, soothing the post-bath or pool transition. Smooth edges and luxurious cotton terrycloth combine to create the perfect hooded towel. Each lush, cozy towel is edged in one of ten exclusive Bébé au Lait prints.

About The Double Reversible Bib:

The two-sided, reversible Double Bib features Bébé au Lait’s exclusive, chic prints on one side and thick, luxurious terry cloth on the other solving three fundamental problems with most other bibs available:

(1)    The caregiver doesn’t need to fumble with cumbersome closures since the Double Bib has safely hidden magnets that seamlessly and securely close the bib quickly, even one-handed.
(2)    It looks great and works better exactly four times longer than most other bibs since it is both
two-sided and reversible by way of the ingenious design.
(3)    Its generous size and quality craftsmanship equates to full coverage of the Baby’s chest and neck so as to fully protect their clothes and not irritate their skin.

Totally reversible, this innovative new bib allows for super clean feeding every time – even when busy parents haven’t yet had a chance to wash it (and yes, it’s 100% machine washable).

Available in ten exclusive prints.

My Review:

I received the Baby Hooded Towel in Chocolate, which you can see here. The first thing that I noticed about the towel was how extremely soft it was. It felt just like one of those adult sized cotton terry robes you wear at the spa. I also LOVED the Chocolate print! So vibrant and fun, perfect for my toddler daughter! The quality of the towel is superb and it washes like a dream! You can get the hooded towel in   Baby sized, as I did, but also in Toddler Size. The Baby size is quite generous and works well with both my two year old and my 3.5 year old. Now, I just need to get another one, so there is not a fight at each bath time over who gets the "hoody towel".

I also received the Double Reversible Bib in Chocolate, seen here. I love that this bib is 4-in-1, as I have a 2 year old who has the tendency to eat very messy at times (especially with spaghetti). This bib is large enough to cover her whole front, and I love that my bib-despising two year old cannot rip it off! It washes fantastically and the quality in the workmanship is very good.

Both items come in attractive packaging that is made from recycled materials, which shows that Bebe au Lait not only care for the well-being of children but also of the world around them. I was very impressed also with the shipping turnaround time. I received the products within two weeks of being told they were sent out.


Both the Baby Hooded Towel and Double Reversible Bib would make spectacular baby shower, or new baby gifts and I highly recommend both products. 

BUY IT: You can head over to Bebe au Lait to shop online or check out the store locator to find a retail nearest you.

WIN IT: One (1) reader will win their choice of either the Baby Hooded Towel (retail value of $40) or the Double Reversible Bib ($16) in the pattern of your choice.
