Things to consider before buying baby bibs
Each bib material is designed for the same purpose; however, different materials have their advantages and disadvantages. Materials vary from fabric, rubber to plastic. However, most parents prefer fabric, mostly because it feels soft on your baby’s skin.
Food-grade silicone bibs are also a popular option material-wise; being waterproof they have a tray at the base to protect your baby’s cloth from messes.
When considering buying a bib of a particular material, you should pay equal attention to the front and the back part of the bib. Most manufacturers use different materials for the front and back, especially for multi-layered bibs.
Finding these types of bibs will not be a problem since most bibs in our list use toweling as the backing and organic cotton or muslin at the front part.
This is one of the minor details of a bib that can be easily ignored.
Picking a bib with a suitable fastener should be easy enough; just make sure that it will not be easy for your baby to undo it. Normally, different manufacturers come up with their innovative fasteners design. As long as it does its job, you are good to go.
- Bandana bibs
This type is mostly used during teething time to prevent drool from seeping through your baby’s skin.
- Large bibs
These bibs cover a large surface area and are preferably used during feeding time. Though they can also be used to protect your baby’s clothes from drool during teething time.
- Feeding bibs
They are mostly made of rubber and have a tray at the bottom to catch food before hitting the floor.
Easy of use
A user-friendly bib requires minimal effort for you to put on your baby and take it off. Even though it should be easy for you to take off, the fastener’s design should make it hard for the baby to take off.
A good bib should also be easy to clean, whether it is machine washable or requires you to wash it manually. After cleaning, it should dry quickly; this will make it convenient for use.
