How to choose a bib?
While choosing a bib depends upon the size and age of your baby, the type of bib is perhaps most important.
Bandanna drool bibs are perfect for busy parents. This stylish accessory is the perfect addition to any outfit, as you can put it on in the morning and leave it on throughout the day. Many are made with a cotton front and moisture resistant material on the back, ensuring you stop any liquids from seeping through to your baby's clothes. The adjustable snap fittings are not only safety inclined, coming loose when pressure is applied, but also enable you to make the bibs bigger as your baby grows.
The silicone bib, primarily designed for meal times, is easily wiped clean and is incredibly durable. They are ideal for keeping washing loads down, saving you both hassle and time – something which comes at a premium when you have a new arrival in the family. The lipped bottom also catches any dropped food, saving you the time and stress of cleaning up. The silicone material is also cost-efficient, as the bibs do not need to be regularly replaced.
The long-sleeved bib is an excellent choice if you're taking your new arrival out for the day or to a special event. The water resistant top slips over your baby's outfit, protecting it from food, drinks, and other spillages. It's ideal for keeping the entire outfit clean. The Velcro fasteners and elasticated cuffs mean that the bib can grow along with your baby, and the unisex designs make the product suitable for all. Many even come with a handy travel bag, so you can put it on when required and pop it back in the bag when meal time is over.
Disposable bibs, which you can wear and throw away, are great for travelling and holidays, or if you're simply out and about a lot at meal times. Both waterproof and strong, it’s a good idea to keep a pack stored in your baby bag for bib-related emergencies.
