Top 7 Baby Bibs

By

Bibs are a necessary part of your baby or toddler's wardrobe! There's a huge variety of bibs available today - from basic snap on types to sculpted full-coverage styles. Here are some great bibs that will keep baby's clothes clean and look going doing it.

1. Silly Billyz Long-Sleeved Bibs

The long-sleeved bib from Silly Billyz solves two common mealtime problems. First, it covers baby's arms, so the sleeves of baby's shirt don't end up covered in mashed carrots. Second, the fleece front helps keep food from rolling down into baby's lap, while the nylon backing means that liquid won't soak through onto baby's shirt. This bib is really well thought out and is perfect for babies who are learning to feed themselves. It comes in nine colors and two sizes to fit ages 6 months to 4 years. Velcro closure at the back. Machine-washable.

Mally leather baby bibs are as stylish as they are functional. The leather is really durable and wipes clean in a hurry. These bibs are reversible, with an adorable leather applique graphic on one side and a practical, food-catching pocket on the other. At the neck magnets are sewn into the leather so the bibs are easy to take on and off. The company suggests using the magnets to hang the bib on the fridge when you're not using it, so it's always easy to find. Available in 16 colors and tons of designs, you can choose a size small for ages 6-36 months or a large for 1-4 years.

The pocket on Goo-Goo Baby's Perfect Pocket Bib is not just for show! This wide pocket stays open so that it really catches messes well. Unlike many pocket bibs, though, you can unsnap the pocket so you can clean the bib really well. The manufacturer says the pocket will hold up to 1/2 cup of liquid! Food will not end up stuck in the pocket corners. These bibs are made from a waterproof, plastic-type material, but are free of lead, PVC, phthalates and formaldehyde. Goo-Goo Baby Perfect Pocket Bibs come in more than ten patterns. The size is adjustable at the neck, and two bib sizes are available - 6-24 months and 2-4 years.

4. Baby Star Bibs

The texture on the corduroy can help catch more food and spills, too. Available in several patterns for girls and boys. One size only.

The details on 2 Red Hens bibs makes them stand out from the crowd. From the silky soft fabrics in rich colors and patterns, to the coordinating trim at the edges and the button-closure, these bibs have a hand-made by grandma feel to them. The neck closure is offset so it's easier to reach when you're facing baby. A clear pocket on the front helps keep food from sliding into baby's lap. 2 Red Hens bibs come with a coordinating burp cloth for extra mess control.
