Review: Baby Bee Mod's Drool Pads

Remember the beautiful Tula I purchased last fall?  First thing Nora did when I had her in it was to starting chewing and sucking on the straps.  I'm not one that likes to wash my entire carrier, because it takes time; I hate laundry and it is more wear and tear on the carrier.  So I started looking for Drool Pads.  I puttered around Etsy and kept coming back to one shop that really stuck out to me; Baby Bee Mod.

Here is how the drool pads came to me once I opened the mailer.  A cute ziploc baggie with the logo.  I opted for the corner style with loops (to hold the plastic baby links for toys or pacifier holders) on the bottom.  It made the most sense to me and is what it seem most people choose.

Here are both sides of the reversible corner drool pads with the loops.  The one on the left matches the carrier perfectly and the other side is a fun coordinate print; I haven't decided which side I like better.    

The stitching is even and the snaps line up perfectly.  They are solid and despite a few months of use show no signs of wear. The loops are holding up as well, even through the playing of an almost-toddler.  The snaps are tight and I have no fear that they will tear through the fabric at any time during use.  They are nicely absorbent, but not too thick and bulky.  

These two pictures probably show the fitting of the drool pads the best of all I have taken, mostly because I'm not taking a selfie!  It covers up the straps that Nora can reach with that oh-so-full-of-drool teething mouth all the way down to the corner of the carrier.  By the way don't you love the Darth Vader Babywearing?!

Here is the perfect reason for these drool straps!  I'm not scared to let her drink or eat in the Tula due to getting it dirty.  It keeps her happier and lets me get even more done if she can eat a snack; plus I  just can throw the drool pads in the wash when that "leak-proof" sippy cup fails.  

Baby Bee Mod also carries other Tula and baby carrier accessories, even in matching and coordinating prints for Tula!  I'll be purchasing a hood and reach straps as soon as I can make a decision on fabric! Find Baby Bee Mod on facebook for shop announcements, specials and promo codes.

The product was given to me for free for reviewing purposes, but the views and opinions are my own, not that of the company, shop or owner.
