What Are Baby Bibs Used For?
A baby bib is a garment worn by newborns or toddlers to protect their delicate skin and clothes from food, spit-up and drool. Every baby at some point will need to wear a bib. It could start right after they are born or later when parents begin weaning their baby. At some point, we all realize the universal truth that babies are not just cute but very messy. This is where a good durable baby bib comes in. A good bib should be absorbent, fit comfortably on your baby (not tight around the neck) and be able to withstand constant washing.
Did you know that almost fifty percent of babies’ spit-up regularly? Though this form of reflux is quite normal for infants, not having the proper garments can be devastating for both mom and baby. Wearing a baby bib can relieve a lot of that stress and make it easier to travel. If we are going to talk about spitting up milk, we also can’t forget to mention drooling and teething. Babies will drool constantly starting at birth, so having a bib quickly on hand is a plus. Depending on how much your baby drools, you could go through 5 bibs in a week or 5 in a day. It’s always better to be prepared.
Another great thing about baby bibs is that they are much easier to clean then an entire outfit. As soon as one gets messy you can toss it in the wash and grab another one. Our handmade baby bibs are machine washable and dryer safe. If you’re a fashionista, you can also match your baby’s outfit with their bib. We must point out that babies should never fall asleep with a bib on. Sleeping in bibs poses a serious risk for choking or suffocation. As soon as they have finished feeding delicately remove the bib. As you now know, there are so many advantages to using baby bibs.
