new mums don’t buy any bib other than . . .

. . . these ones:

Not these (not because they aren’t cute, because I could easily wear them myself on spaghetti night):

One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven and Eight.

Sure these might look cute.  And could easily be the subject of some “oh she must have that one” or “oh look it has tractors on it, he really needs to have that” or “look watermelons! she doesn’t have watermelons on a green background yet.  she’d better have that” banter in you mind as you walk through Westfield.

But keep in mind these facts: babies aren’t very coordinated; babies don’t hold still; and your aim is not that good.  They will spill it all down their front. A common sense cause and effect scientific fact that I failed to think about before purchasing 100 cute as a button fabric bibs. So unless you want to wash and dry four to six bibs a day (and no rinsing under the tap doesn’t cut it), don’t buy the cloth ones.

And I’ve found those rubber type ones pinch or rub their soft little neck skin.

So the best I’ve found are those made out of some sort of material in the middle – not rubber but not cotton.  Of course, if you are going to ignore this advice – as I am – these are some of the cutest and most cost efficient I’ve found.

Do you agree?

Can you recommend any other good ones that don’t need washing?


Got any thoughts? I'd love to hear them.
