This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Bethany who said, “I love the mint chocolate towel; it would be a gift for my sister who is expecting a baby soon! I have a nursing cover, and do love it!” for winning the Bebe au Lait hooded towel.
A few months before Isabella was born I asked some of my friends about their favorite, can’t live without baby/mommy products. Bebe au Lait was one of the top recommendations.
Bebe au Lait is probably best know for their classy nursing covers (now that I’ve seen the quality of their other things I would love to have one of these), but they also offer high quality burp cloths, hooded towels, bibs and more.
Bebe au Lait sent me a pack of burp cloths and a hooded towel. Can you say luxury? I’ve burped and bathed nine babies before Isabella and have used a lot of burp cloths and baby towels but I’ve never had any of this quality before. These are not only beautiful (I always make sure that I have these burp cloths when I go out) they are also delightful to use and make me feel quite spoiled
Both are made of thick 100% cotton terry cloth and are embellished with Bebe au Lait’s signature 100% cotton fabrics. I love the lovely, classy fabric selection. The burp cloths and hood of the towel are made of a double layer of terry cloth for super absorbency where it’s really needed.
The burp cloths are a smaller than what I’ve typically used (16′” x 6″ after several washes) and when I first saw them I wondered if they would be adequate to catch all that a big spitter has to offer, but we’ve had no problems. I think the key is that these burp cloths are more absorbent and so rather than the spit-up rolling down the cloth and onto the floor (isn’t that what happens with the burp cloths you use?), the Bebe au Lait cloths absorb it.
The towel is sized generously enough to accommodate toddlers. It’s large enough for our tall 3 (nearly 4) year old to use comfortably.The quality materials, lovely trim and nice ‘extras’, like an inside loop for hanging, make me love this towel.
If you’ve read Raising Olives for long you know that I’m going to be honest with you and here it is. While I absolutely adore the burp cloths and the towel and was surprised at the quality and attention to detail, I am too cheap frugal and would not have paid the Bebe au Lait prices to purchase them for myself.
However, now that I’ve had the opportunity to use and enjoy these products and seen the quality first hand, I am purchasing them to use as baby gifts. The fabrics are classy and beautiful and most will work for either a boy or a girl. Bebe au Lait products offer just the right amount of ‘spoilage’ for a new mom and baby. The burp cloths are probably my favorites, I know that I would love to have another set!
While we’re talking about honesty. The above picture of sweet Bella apparently fresh from the bath and wrapped in the luxurious Bebe au Lait towel? Completely staged. Since Bella enjoys baths just as much as she enjoys daddy time, visitors or anything other than nursing and I didn’t think you wanted to look at this faceI nursed Isabella, stripped the sleeper off of her shoulders and quickly staged the happy not crying pictures (yes all of them) before she had time to realize that she wasn’t eating. Complete honesty? You’ll get it here.
Have a new baby arriving? A baby shower that you need a gift for? Want something special for a new baby and mom? Take a look at Bebe au Lait. They have this lovely gift set with a nursing cover and set of three burp cloths for $50, hooded towels for $40 and burp cloths 3 for $20.
You know that I’m not going to leave you without an opportunity to win some Bebe au Lait. One Raising Olives reader will win a hooded towel with your choice of trim fabric from Bebe au Lait.
