Top 5 Baby Bibs That Actually Work

Here is a list of the Top 5 best baby bibs that we have found – all the way from newborn to toddler.  Why are bibs so important that they necessitate a “Top 5” list? Because stained baby clothes means more laundry and dressing and re-dressing your kid is a pain in the butt.    We also believe that sippy cups are equally as important (see Top 9 Sippy Cups for Babies and Toddlers for more information), and you can also read about my battle with sippy cups on the post My Battle With Sippy Cups.  For now, here are the five best baby bibs out there:

Top 5 Baby Bibs

1.  DaBib

Link:  DaBib – DaGiggles Waterproof
Ages:  0+ Months

Useful for DaBib – DaGiggles Waterproof is FANTASTIC for babies who seem to have a ‘hole in their lip’ – meaning that milk dribbles down their mouth because they can’t drink quite fast enough.   Most bibs don’t catch the milk that dribbles down baby’s cheek and under baby’s neck.  It’s a pain in the butt to constantly be washing underneath baby’s wobbly neck, and the consequence of not washing baby’s neck can end in a yeast infection.  This bib ROCKS.  It’s a tad pricey, but it’s worth every penny.  DaBib Waterproof Bib is also water-proof and it’s reversible – one side terry cloth and the other side is waterproof material (shown in the picture above).

NOTE:  Another brand with the same idea the DaBib Waterproof Bib (i.e., absorbing extra milk that flows out from your baby’s mouth) is the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Milk Feeding Bib, which also aims to catch the milk dripping down baby’s cheek.  I’ve used both bibs.  They are both fantastic.  In my opinion, the DaBib brand has a better absorbancy though, so if your baby has a “hole in its lip” (meaning that your baby dribbles A LOT when it drinks a bottle even with slow-flow nipples), then I would go with the DaBib brand and spend the extra money.  If your baby has a normal-to-medium dribbling problem, then I’d save some money and go with the  Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Milk Feeding Bib.

Bumkins Long-Sleeved Bib   

Ages: 6+Months
Useful for:  Bumkins Long-Sleeved Bibs are great for the messy meals, especially the meals in which your very uncoordinated toddler will be feeding himself with a fork or a spoon.  I use this a lot for lunches to keep my little one’s clothes clean.

3.  Bumkins SuperBib

Bumkins Waterproof SuperBib  
Ages:  6+ Months
Useful for:  The Bumkins Waterproof SuperBib bibs are experts at catching cheerios, and these are also very easy to clean (doesn’t require a washing machine after each use like other bibs). 

4.   Waterproof Terry Bibs With Snaps

Waterproof Terry Baby Bibs

Ages:  0+ Months (or for babies who do not dribble)

Useful for:  The Waterproof Baby Bibs with Snaps are affordable, and effective once baby stops dribbling during feeding time).  For dribblers, using DaBib – DaGiggles Waterproof  is your best bet. But these bibs from for bottle-feeding, and for spoon-fed babies.  You can find comparable bibs, made by Parents’ Choice, at Wal-Mart (a 5-pack is $4.99).

5.  Ikea Bibs with Sleeves

Ages: 6+Months

Useful for:  The Ikea Baby Bib Set with Sleeves is a great bib for messy eaters and it’s a fraction of the price of the Bumkins Sleeved Bibs (the perk of the Bumkins is their sturdiness).  A 2-pack costs around $8.00.  These bibs are great for art projects later on in the child’s life.  Check out our post about the Top Items for Pre-Schoolers for more on the best products for toddlers and preschoolers.
