Westchester mom launches adorable and functional onesies with bibs.
Mamaroneck mom Carla Palmer despised the big ugly bibs her daughter, Charlie, had to wear 24/7 as a drooling teething baby. Charlie was even less of a fan. So mama took matters into her own hands. As a designer turned stay-at-home mom, Palmer honed her skills (she’s a graduate of FIT) and launched Cheekie Charlie: a collection of onesies with 100% organic interchangeable snap-on bibs. Genius.
The launch product for the brand new line is the “Bibsie”: a snap on bib and onesie set. The Bibsie includes 1 onesie with 3 adorable interchangeable bibs that are integrated into the onesie with 4 hidden snaps (without a bib, it appears to be your standard onesie!). There is no extra fabric to irritate your angel’s neck, and all the bibs are terrycloth-backed to keep babies dry. The USA-made bibs are cowled with fun and trendy prints (think Dwell studio meets Petit Bateau), so fashion meets function perfectly. The Bibsie set sells for a reasonable $38 introductory price and can be purchased at the online shop. [...]
