About Sip and Savour

The inception of Sip and Savour arose from numpfer founder Sarah Robbin’s desire to give back to the BC Women’s Newborn ICU. Sarah’s own baby daughter, Charlotte, spent her first three days of life here – the longest three days of Sarah’s life.

Sarah’s experience at BC Women’s Newborn ICU led to another gift. Sarah observed that the design of the absorbent washcloths the nurses used as bibs could be improved to enhance babies’ comfort. “The market did not supply bibs that provided full coverage, resulting in a very wet outfit. Once home I couldn’t find the functional, absorbent, soft yet stylish bib I was searching for – and so I created multi use super soft bibs to enhance the babies comfort - and numpfer™ was born.”
