Traditional Classic Bib

Like the bandana dribble bib, the classic bib is used to catch any drops of drool or milk whilst feeding. These bibs are a half moon shape, usually a cloth or towel like material.

Turn up feeding bibs

Waterproof turn up feeding bibs are also useful as their turn up bottom section catches bits and pieces your little one may drop during feeding time. These bibs are made of plastic, rubber or silicone making them easy to clean whilst keeping baby dry.

Disposable Bibs

Disposable bibs are not ideal for everyday use, but they do come in handy when you’re out and about and need an emergency fresh bib, especially when you know you won’t be home for a while to clean or spot treat your material bibs. They’re a great option to keep in your baby bag as a back up bib when emergency strikes.
