Using drool bibs for infants can be a game changer. KeaBabies has the perfect bibs for your child, made from fabric designed to last!
Let's face it: all babies drool. And while some only have a slight dribble, others seemingly have constant waterfalls dripping down their chins, leaving a strong chance of soaking baby's clothes!
When shopping for the best in baby accessories, expectant parents should stock up on drool bibs. Of course, there is an endless selection of socks, mittens, bows, headbands, swaddle blankets, hats, and onesies - but many parents forget that babies wear bibs too!
And while bibs might not be the most fun, adorable accessory to shop for, they are necessary. Infants can go through several bibs in one day, and bibs are essential for protecting baby's skin and clothes. Along with burp cloths, new parents should be sure to stock up on baby bibs before their little one's arrival - they might need them sooner than they think.

When do babies usually start needing to wear bibs?
You can use bibs as an accessory even when your baby is little, but usually, bibs come in handy when your little one begins drooling, between 2-4 months of age. Some babies prefer certain types of bibs, and bibs come in all shapes and varieties. KeaBabies has plenty of unique bib styles to choose from, from bandana bibs, to cloth bibs, to silicone bibs, and more!
Types of bibs (and choosing the right ones)
There are many styles of bibs available, all for different purposes. You'll want to use different bibs for teething and drooling than you would for starting solids. Here are some popular bib styles:
Mealtime bibs, including silicone bibs, are helpful when a baby eats solid food for the first time. These bibs are usually made of plastic, rubber, or silicone, and are easy to wipe clean! They are designed for easy washing and durability.
Burp cloths and drool bibs are ideal for bottle feeding or breastfeeding. Babies need bibs to help protect their skin from spilled milk or drool that can cause irritation and rashes.
Whether you choose a traditional bib or a bandana bib or other styles, how many bibs you'll need depends on your family's preferences and your little one's needs.
Most kids stop wearing bibs when they are toddlers.
How many baby bibs will I need?
This depends on your family's unique needs and your baby's preferences when it comes to wearing bibs. Typically, parents should stock up on at least 6-7 bibs (one for each day), and maybe even more when your baby starts solids. Many infants need drool bibs, like the KeaBabies Urban Drool Bibs, to keep them clean and dry and protect the baby's neck from rashes and irritation. Silicone bibs are helpful to wear during mealtime. Long-sleeved bibs or smock bibs are helpful for very messy eaters or to wear during art projects.
Bibs for teething or drooling:
All babies drool, due to their oral muscles not being fully developed until they are toddlers. The excess drool helps little ones to digest food when they start eating solid foods.
When they begin teething, drooling intensifies and babies may go through a couple of bibs in a day. It's a good idea to keep a few extra bibs at home or in the diaper bags. A drool bib can soak up the spit to keep babies’ clothes getting soaked (and potentially irritating the skin underneath).
Drool bibs can also be handy to wipe off moisture around their mouth, which can also cause a skin rash.
Consider your baby's age when picking out bibs.
Always check the age range that your baby's bibs are suitable for. Safety is key for little ones. Never let an infant sleep with a bib on. Although they might look cute, nothing should be around your baby's neck while they sleep.

Has your baby started solid foods? You might opt for a food-grade silicone bib, one that your baby can chew on during meal times. A silicone bib makes a great mealtime bib because it is easy to wipe clean.
