The most common plastic bibs available are scoop bibs. These bibs are made for mealtime, as they are designed with a built-in curved tray-shaped bowl. This helps catch any stray food that may fall from the baby's mouth. Some of the bibs' designs are rigid and can be uncomfortable. There are more comfortable designs that offer more flexible plastic and give the baby a better experience when eating. Plastic bibs are waterproof, easy to wipe off, and some are dishwasher safe. The plastic bibs are thin and made of a flexible plastic material. They are easy to clean after feeding your baby.
A baby drools until about the age of two. Drooling is uncontrollable in babies because the mouth muscles are not yet developed. Drooling increases when teething, which is when teething bibs are most useful. Teething bibs are smaller than feeding bibs and their main purpose is to keep your baby's clothes clean at the front. Besides preventing neck rashes, you can use them for wiping the mouth dry from dribble. For teething babies, bibs can be purchased that have silicone tips. The baby can use the bib to absorb drool, but it can also be used as a teether to help soothe the pain. Baby teething bibs can be made of organic cotton and heavy cotton. A two-layer material is used to ensure maximum absorption.
Bibs for New Borns
Some bibs are just made for newborns up to 6 months old. Newborns can start wearing bibs when they are around 1 to 2 weeks old. Bibs are essential for a newborn, as they will spit out milk or food that they do not like to eat. They can also be used as burp cloths, as the bib can slip easily over your shoulder after feeding your baby. When buying a newborn bib, make sure they are made with a soft fabric and are absorbent. Look for two fasteners that are on the side of the neck. The materials newborn bibs can be made of include cotton, polyester, organic cotton, flannel, microfleece, and other materials. CVS offers a variety of bibs for your baby. You need to find the right fit and style that fits your baby.
