Zig Zag Rags Bandana Bibs + Giveaway

I have the cutest giveaway for you today! Zig Zag Rags offers the most adorable and stylish bandana and scarf bibs designed in a variety of fashionable fabrics. I've used bandana/scarf bibs in the past but these are by far my favorites.



Handmade in the US, these machine washable bibs are super soft and absorbent. In the past, the bibs I've bought were cute but always ended up soaked with drool. I had to constantly change shirts or switch bibs - not fun. To ensure a more functional bib,  depending on the bib you select, Zig Zag Rags offer either flannel, fleece or minky backing - no more unnecessary outfit changes! Their convenient plastic snap back closure offers two adjustable sizes that grow along with your child.




Now for the fun part, Zig Zag Rags is giving all Hello Jack readers the chance to win store credit to their fabulous store.

GIVEAWAY Enter for a chance to win a $20 credit and free shipping to Zig Zag Rags

Reading Corner: Where Do Baby Teeth Go?

Jack's first visit to the dentist a few months ago was a complete success. A few weeks after his first visit, with the help of a local dentist, they started learning about teeth and oral hygiene at preschool. Ever since, he's been obsessed with brushing his teeth and flossing - yes, my 4 year old loves to floss! 


Where Do Our Baby Teeth Go? was the perfect book to help him continue learning about what happens to his baby teeth as he continues to grow. Written by Vilasinee Bunnag and illustrated by Yasmin Doctor, this interactive and educational book is a modern take on tooth stories and traditions from around the world. From the US to Brazil, China to Sweden pages are filled with adorable stories to help kids understand, celebrate and document their milestone of losing baby teeth.
Each page reveals vibrant illustrations featuring a child sharing their story about losing baby teeth in their respective countries. During the interactive portion of the book, readers (with the help of their parents) are encouraged to write their own tooth story and use diagrams to track which teeth they have lost and where in the world they were when the important milestone occurred.
