As Alex learned to feed himself, I tried flat pocket bibs like these but the pocket didn’t catch half of the dropped food and they were a pain to clean and dry. The bibs I saw with pockets that stuck out looked a lot like these and I felt that they would be uncomfortable for Alex because they seemed extremely rigid and overly long. Then one day at Right Start, I saw these Baby Bjorn bibs. I love them! They’re pretty flexible, not too long, and super easy to clean. In fact, I love them so much that I couldn’t believe Right Start doesn’t carry them anymore. The closest thing they (and Babies R Us) had were these Kiddopotamus bibs, which I didn’t care for as much. We now have four Baby Bjorn bibs, which gets us through the day without washing since I sometimes don’t get to the dishes til the end of the day. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Incidentally, I’m not as picky about “regular” bibs, like the ones Tyler wears to soak up all his drool. But I’ve come to prefer bibs like these, which velcro on the side of the neck rather than the back. The side velcro makes them a little easier to get on and off, particularly when Tyler’s strapped into his car seat.
