Very cute, simple, gender non-specific protection for Ergo 360°

I received the Drool & Teething Pad for Ergobaby Four Position 360 Baby Carrier, 3 Piece Set for free, and this is my honest review of the product. My opinions are unbiased and 100% my own.

My first impression when I saw the drool pads and bib was, "Aw! How cute!" Seriously, I love the little bird pattern. I'm such a fan of classic, simple, non-gender-specific patterns and colors, and the ivory background and simple navy birds combination really hits that mark! I also love how simple the wash instructions are: "Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low. Do not iron the back."

The snaps and rounded rectangles made it pretty clear how to attach the drool pads to the carrier, but I had to look at the instructions to figure out how to attach the top, or bib piece. I think that is likely since the drool pads and bib are designed for the Ergobaby Four Position 360 Baby Carrier Grey, which has buttons, but I have a semi-custom carrier from Ethos Babywearing--the Ethos ConvertiBu­­™ in charcoal twill--which does not, and the bib portion did not attach properly; however, the drool pads fit great. I don't mind not having the bib portion, though. Having Baby Sister forward facing in the front hurts my back, so I wouldn't ever use that feature, and thus wouldn't necessarily need the bib. When I noticed the recommendation for the Ergo 360°, I had planned on checking one out from my local lending library, but I've been unable to contact them since Hurricane Hermine hit the area. I'll definitely update if/when I get my hands on a 360°! But I don't think it would change my review much.

Pros:
-cute, simple, gender non-specific pattern
-easily attaches to the straps of most standard baby carriers (including my semi-custom carrier)
-Baby liked the texture
-elastic loops to attach teething toys to

Cons:
Really the only con I can think of is that I had the extra bib piece that didn't attach to the carrier, but it's not the company's fault I didn't pay attention to the recommended carrier. I'm especially hesitant to list it since Baby liked cuddling with the extra piece, and drool pads fit the straps fit perfectly, even though my carrier is a semi-custom. Since I wasn't able to try attaching the bib, that may be difficult as well, but I doubt it: the button holes are clear, and the shape easily folds over the top of the carrier, to protect both inside and outside.

Overall, I would recommend the Drool and Teething Pads and bib for anyone who wants to protect an Ergo 360°. I also think the drool/suck pad portion will fit over almost any standard SSC (soft-structured/buckle carrier), and possibly over some Mei Tais.

Plus, Baby loves it (just don't be fooled by the photo, she was fighting a nap.)
