When it comes to having a baby, there are numerous things expectant parents have to think about. Most think about the big things like cribs, car seats and diapers. But, there are many other items that can make a parents’ duty much easier. Baby bibs are one of these items. There are different types of baby bibs on the market to choose from. Bibs can be very useful from the time they are infants to toddlers. Babies can be very messy and bibs can help them stay cleaner.
Even before your baby eats solid food, they can still spit up and drool. This can lead to having to change their outfit many times. Discussed below are different varieties of baby bibs. Each will have pros and cons. It is up to the parent to determine which kind of bib they want their baby to use.
A bandana bib gets its name after how they are styled, much like a bandana which is folded in half to create a triangle. It is then tied around the neck. These types of bibs are great for babies that are teething and drooling a lot because they look more like a cute addition to an outfit rather than just a bib.
These types of baby bibs can generally absorb more drool than others because they are worn higher on the neck compared to other types of bibs. They are also harder for a baby to pull off because they are tied behind their necks. The main disadvantage of bandana style bibs is that they don’t cover the whole stomach like other bibs.
These styles of bibs are very common. They are generally made of plastic and have a small pouch at the bottom that can catch loose pieces of food that fall. These bibs are mostly used during feeding times. These are popular because they are easy to clean and can help keep mess to a minimum because of the small pouch that helps catch food. The con associated with this bib is that the baby must be old enough to sit up for these to be used.
These are great baby bibs because they provide more coverage than the other styles of bibs. They can cover the baby’s whole upper body. These bibs are plastic and look like jumpers. These work extra well for babies that are older or that already know how to feed themselves but still don’t know how to do it without making a mess. The downside to these types of bibs is that they can sometimes be uncomfortable and usually cost a little more than the other styles of baby bibs.
