If you’re a new parent, you may well be asking yourself why you should bother with a bib in the first place. Here are a few benefits that strapping a bib around your little one’s neck can bring.
Babies have extremely sensitive skin, and that includes to their own drool! A bib helps keep them dry without having to change their clothes all the time, preventing them from developing nasty, itchy rashes.
Babies make messes. They throw their food around, spit it back up, and drool constantly while their teeth are coming in – and all that mess gets all over their clothes. Bibs help keep their clothes clean, saving you time and hassle when cleaning up the inevitable mess.
Repeated spit-up or spills can eventually ruin your child’s best clothes. Bibs prevent that from happening, saving you money in the long run – it’s far cheaper to replace bibs than entire outfits!
Popping a bib in the wash is much easier than washing your child’s entire wardrobe. Bibs with snaggy fasteners can be run through the washer in a laundry bag to prevent problems. Some plastic mealtime bibs can be run through the dishwasher – check your bib’s packaging first.
Bibs are a great way to add a pop of color or a cute pattern to baby’s outfit, even while they help keep your child clean. They can also help baby stay warm in the cold winter months by providing an extra layer of warmth.
As a fresh source of color and texture, bibs are a great way to encourage baby’s sensory perception development. On the physical side of things, teething bibs often come with a chewable corner to relieve the pain and irritation of tooth eruption.
There are bibs to help with everything from drool to teething to mealtime, and for mess sizes from small to all-encompassing (you can even buy sleeved bibs to cover baby’s entire top!).
