An Overview On Baby Bibs
Everything is new for your little one. From food to coloring and painting, you will need a little help with damage control after they learn all about these new things. When introducing your baby to all these awesome things, you’ll really want a good bib to preserve their clothing from stains and unavoidable messes. With so many options on the market, how do you choose? You can always find help from reviews from other parents who have been through this and have rated the best bibs for the job. Be sure to check out all your options and choose the one that best fits your budget and baby.
You wouldn’t think that there are more than just a couple types of bibs, but there are about six different kinds you can use. The market has a myriad of options, each for a specific activity and age range so you can really prevent those stains from hitting their cute outfits.
For the newest little bundles, the traditional bib is suggested. It is made with cotton or terry cloth for the utmost absorption. You usually use these in the early stages for drooling, teething babies or bottle-fed babies during their feeding times. Some bibs are made using an absorbent double-sided terry cloth. If you purchase a set in white, you can use them for either gender. They are also easy to wash with a whitening agent.
The bandana bib is the latest trend for babies that are starting to eat real food. They can be used for teething babies as well, so that pesky drool doesn’t destroy their outfits. These are a triangle design, created so it doesn’t get caught on the baby’s arms as they flail around or try to feed themselves later on. You’ll find this style is available in the cutest designs and the softest cotton. These are often packaged in a sets, which are cheaper than purchasing the bibs individually.
There are bibs designed specifically for eating. These bibs have some sort of liquid-proofing on them to keep the mess off their clothes. The most popular in this category are entirely silicone with a pocket along the bottom to catch any spills from baby’s mouth. They come in several color combinations and are easy to spray out in the sink or wipe clean for smaller messes.
Custom bibs are an additional option. These usually consist of a special material and offer personalization for baby. Sometimes, they have a creative design feature. Many of these bibs offer the utmost absorbance by utilizing quilted fabric and extending the length of the front and back of the bib. Some even come with a simple ribbon tie in the back of the neck. Others use coordinating fabric on either side to make the bib reversible and easy to use. In addition, these bibs are machine washable, so cleanup can’t get much easier.
In addition to the mentioned types of bibs, you can also explore poncho bibs and sleeved bibs. These bibs are best used for kids’ craft times, such as painting, playing with clay and egg dying. It isn’t a bad idea to have full coverage when letting your kids explore that kind of fun.
DWYM Fun Fact
- Bibs were not always just for babies. In Europe in the 1600s, the prim and proper used to bring their own bibs to put on for the first course at dinner parties.
- The expression “making ends meet” comes from the times when a gentleman used to have a tough time tucking his bib into his shirt, and it would fall out. It then became a reference to not having enough money to eat.
- Now, designers use snaps and ribbons as closures that “make the ends meet.”
- Some other words for a bib over the years: tucker, chin-wiper, apron and dickey.
The Baby Bib Buying Guide
- When buying bibs, be sure to purchase a set that has multiple size settings or a tie closure. Since they all run different in sizing, it’s important to have something that can adjust comfortably to your little one.
- Choose the right bib for the right age. As your child grows and wants to feed themselves, it will be less aggravating for them to have something that doesn’t hang too close to their arms. This can frustrate them and deter them from wanting to feed themselves.
- If your baby rejects a bib at first, make it part of your routine by letting them pick out their favorite color or design, or perhaps even letting them put it on their stuffed animal so they feel more comfortable about it.
- If you like organization, there are bibs on the market with each day of the week on them, so you can keep them all in order.
- Parents of multiples might want to consider getting personalized bibs to prevent fighting when they reach that age.
