WHAT IS IT?
A bandana bib to stop dribble wetting your baby's clothing. It is made by Skibz and the bibs can be used from birth to three years.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The bib is styled to fit tight under the chin to stop dribble or milk leaks from running down your baby's neck. It is cotton so very soft and it stops chaffing and sore skin on the neck and chin.
WHAT I THINK
I was gifted three Skibz Dribble Bibs when my daughter was born in June, they are all the same unisex design with a white background and blue and red stars. I started using them when she was six weeks old because she caught a bug and was being sick a small amount after every milk feed. I think the bib is effective against my daughters skin being protected from dribble but it is very short so does not protect the clothes if she is sick. It does do its job against dribble and this is good news now that my daughter has started teething.
I have washed them lots of times and they have not gone grey or faded on the coloured stars. The bibs haven't shrunk at all and they still feel soft to touch. I've got other bibs that I use in rotation but I like my daughter to wear these ones when we go out because I like the style and the way they look smart when my daughter is wearing her casual outfits.
My daughter is comfortable in the Skibz bibs and doesn't fuss when I put them on her, she will sleep in them and they don't trouble the skin on her neck or cheeks. The neck hole doesn't go very wide and I don't think they'd be right for 3 year old children, I don't think my daughter will be wearing them past her first birthday.

My little girl never really dribbled so it was never an issue for me but my little boy, oh wow, how different is he. He has an almost constant stream of dribble coming from his mouth and so when you go in for a cuddle or a kiss you end up with a really slobbery wet mouth and chin!! (It's still lovely though, he's gorgeous and gives the best kisses)
I first saw this dribble bibs on my friends son who is the same age as my little girl. He would wear one all the time as he dribbled quite a bit as well and I was always quite envious as I thought they were really cool looking and wish I had an excuse for my little girl to wear one. Well, I obviously wished too hard as I was blessed with a dribbly child the second time around so I could invest in some of these bibs.
I thought they would be a good idea as his shirts would always end up soaking just a few minutes after they had been on and at least with a bib I could replace it during the day and not keep on changing his whole outfit.
These bibs are really cute and funky looking. They are in a bandana style so they look like a little neckerchief that a cowboy would wear. They are made from 100% cotton and have tightly woven fabrics which ensure maximum absorbency. You can see and feel that they are quite thick without being bulky and this means they don't look like you have a big towel around your baby's neck in all honesty. According to the information from the company the bibs are lined with two layers of backing fabric and one of them has been brushed so it picks up moisture better than a flat fabric. I would definitely agree with these. These bibs really absorb my little boys dribble and I usually can leave one on most of the day and it will not soak through to his clothes, keeping them nice and clean and the bib itself will not need changing because its too wet.
The bib fastens at the back of the neck and then hangs in a triangle shape at the front, ie bandana style as I've mentioned above. It fastens with an adjustable press stud fastening. I think this is so much better than velcro fastening as its very hard for a baby to pull off their neck. My little boy is used to them now but in the beginning he did try to tug at it but could not pull it off because the stud was too tight.
These bibs wash really well, you can just stick them in the washing machine with the rest of your washing. They are apparently pre-shrunk so will not shrink but I don't put mine int he dryer anyway, I prefer to let them line dry. These bibs come in a big variety of different colours and patterns for both boys and girls. We have the black and white cow print one, my personal favourite and a red and blue stars print. The bibs are a bit costly at £10 each but if you view them as a part of an outfit that is to be worn everyday then I think you can justify that cost as they are not traditional eating in bibs to protect clothes from food.
A great stylish baby item.
When my little boy started teething he had to have a bib on permanently as otherwise he ended up drenched in his own dribble. I always found though that most bibs were huge and covered up his cute little outfits! In was just by chance when searching through the internet I found Skibz bibs!
They look like cute little bandanna's, which clip up behind there neck with press studs so they are nice and secure when they are on. They tuck right under your babies chin so it catches all there dribble keeping there clothes dry, the material is also lovely and soft so its nice and comfortable on your babies skin. They also aren't too huge that they cover all of your babies clothes but they also look quite trendy themselves!
Even though the bibs don't have a waterproof backing I never found my babies clothes got wet through it as they are quite thick and very absorbent!
The price can vary depending on the sort of pattern you want and there are loads to choose from. I tend to pay around £8 when I buy them. They can be a bit expensive compared to other bibs, so they may be best jsut to buy a couple of nice ones rather then to use them every day!
I really love these bibs and have such fun choosing designs off the website, Mine usually arrive after ordering within 2-3 working days which is great!
I would recommend these to all people with babies!
There is a huge craze at the moment and it's called Bandana Bibs. There are all sorts of bandana bibs on the market at the moment, 'It's a Bibble,' 'Funky Giraffe Bibs' and 'Skibz' are just to name a few. I have tested and tried these three types,and concluded that I like the Skibz ones best. Here is my review...
Skibz bibs are easily available online (skibz.co.uk) and cost between £7.00 and £10.00 depending on what design you go for. they come in three different types; organic, large or standard. I personally prefer the large ones, as I have a particularly sicky baby and I find these cover most of his top, therefore protecting his clothes from getting wet or discoloured.
The idea of the Skibz bibs is that they protect your baby's tops from becoming wet with dribble and/or sick. They are also there to protect underneath their chin from becoming too wet, thus resulting in a sore, red or rashy chin. The bandana idea is so that they look funky- simple as that! Bandana bibs have two fastenings; a tie back or poppers/studs. Skibz have chosen the stud style and are adjustable to fit your growing child. The backing of the bibs is made from a highly absorbent fleecy type material, and allows no liquid through to your baby's top. They tuck up right under your baby's chin too, but the material is super soft so doesn't chafe the delicate skin.
I own about ten Skibz bibs and love them all. They wash superbly at 60 degrees and tumble dry quickly; within two hours at the most. They are so many different designs you are spilt for choice. There are types suitable for either a girl or boy, and unisex too. I have a cow print bib, a stars and stripes bib and a plain blue bib to name a few. There are bibs for every occasion. They are pricey at £7.00 to £10 each, but they really do work. My baby has had no redness or soreness under his chin or down his neck, and his tops have staid dry and stain free. And he is a dribbler and is particularly sicky, let me tell you! I find the stud fastenings very easy to use, and it's great that they are adjustable.
According to their website, Skibz are used by celebrities such as Matt Willis, Natasha McElhone and Kate Garraway. If they're good enough for them, they're good enough for me!
I love this product - it's great. My baby is very dribbly when teething and I got fed up with constantly having to change her bibs as they were wet through. I found she kept getting a rash under her chin when she was wet all the time - not good. Someone mentioned dribble bibs to me and I found these. I bought one to try (as they are a bit costly) but was instantly hooked. They have loads of great designs to choose from and my collection now has about 5 styles. My baby looks really cute in them and I've also bought them for friends who also think that they are great. They wash well and don't seem to fade too much even though they are used all the time. They also have 2 poppers so they grow with baby as well. I would recommend these to anyone.
For the past two months my daughter has been constantly dribbling. This has become worse since she has started teething. Her clothes were constantly soaked right through to her vest. I was worried that this would make her feel uncomfortable and maybe even cold. I tried various bibs but the problem was that bibs for younger babys tend to be decorative and have lots of designs sewn on or bibs for older babies have a plastic backing which my daughter hated and cried when I tried to use.
These were recommended to me on Amazon on my recommendations list. The Skibz come in several different plain colours and also several different patterns. They cost around £7 for one.
When the Skibz arrived it was triangular shaped. It has two poppers on the back to allow you to ajust it to fit your baby. It stated on the packaging that it has a double layer backing system to allow it to absorb moisture quickly, it also says that these fit newborn to 3 years old.
The Skibz is made from a really soft material, it felt a lot softer than a bib. I was unsure of how it would look on my daughter at first but as soon as I fastened it, it looked like a scarf an adult would wear. As per usual my daughter dribbled like crazy for most of the time she wore it. I noticed that unlike some bibs I had used you couldn't see the wet patch on the Skibz. I also noticed how quick the material dried rather than just continually soaking up the dribble it was evaporating rather quickly. The Skibz also matched my daughters outfit so it wasn't 'spoiled' by wearing a bulky awkward bib. My daughter didn't seem bothered by wearing it, and as the material was so soft she even fell asleep wearing it.
The Skibz can be machine washed and after washing they came out really well, there was no shrinkage.
I have since gone on to purchase several of these as they are so good my daughter uses one most days. I would recommend these to all parents with a baby who likes to dribble as it keeps them dry and comfortable. There are so many varieties to choose from that you can choose them to match your baby's outfit. They are definately worth paying that little extra for.
My little one is now 4 months old and for some reason has been teething now for quite a while. He is a a huge dribbler and as many babies do has a huge pile of dribble down his front at most times. Up until now the way of dealing with this is to put a normal bib around his neck to catch the dribble. However, these quickly get soaked and end up with a wet bib and a wet baby!
The skibz appears to be the answer to this problem. It is a bib in the shape of a bandana which is designed to be worn around the neck with the babies clothes. It is thick cotton with a cotton lining. It has a popper on each end to allow it to be fastened easily.
The thick cotton soaks up the babies dribble and this is then kept away from the babies clothes using the cotton lining. So far we have had fantastic success with these bibs and they have done the job and kept him dry. They also look very funky as they come in a few different designs, such as stars and spots and even a cow print!
The problem with the bib is its price! They are £10 each which I believe is extortion! There are other versions on the market which I have tried however these aren't as good quality and dont do the job nearly as well. So maybe this is the price you have to pay for quality?
My latest little bundle is a real slobber chops, he dribbles constantly as well as being quite sicky. To avoid changing his clothes too many times in one day I have to use bibs. I really don't like bibs however, I just think they look pretty ugly and can cover up some gorgeous outifts. I spotted one of these bandana style bibs on a friends little girl and was really impressed by how much better they looked.
They stocked these Skibz in a lovely independant children's shop in my local town so I headed straight there when I next popped in. There was a lovely range of bibs in some great colours. The price however knocked me for six.... they cost a whopping £7.95 each. As I said this was an independant shop so you may find them cheaper elsewhere, but this is an extremely high price for one bib. Nevertheless I felt like my little boy 'needed' one so I parted with my pennies and went skipping off with a lovely red number.
The bib fastens aroun the back of the next with a single press stud and it hangs down in a point. The first thing that struck me was that the bib felt quite stiff and didn't sit all that well on his front. It did look gorgeous though and so much better than a regular style bib.
It served the purpose really well, it absorbed all the dribble and prevented his top and skin from getting wet. I loved the concept but my boy gets through stacks of bibs daily and there was no way I could afford to pay this price. I set about serching good old ebay and found some fab bibs, pretty much the same thing and I paid £10 for 5.
I have to say I do love these bibs for dribbly babies but I do think they are way too expensive... have a hunt on ebay for a cheaper alternative
Skibz dribble bibs are bibs which are designed to go around a baby and can be worn pretty much as a piece of clothing. They are best for children teething and for those just starting solid food, as they come in a variety of colours, patterns and designs they are more like a fashion item rather than an essential clothes protector.
Skibz bibs are havana style bibs which have one studded clip at the back, they tail to a point at the front. They come in bright engaging colours and made of clothe making them easy to wash and to use repeatedly.
It would be fair to say that these bibs are more of a fashion statement then a serious piece of clothing protection. They have become popular with more well off parents wanting to show of little johnny or little lucy that they are hip and trendy parents. As with most things which are bought by the parents as a look rather than as a piece of important equipment they are well not the most useful.
Firstly they aren't the biggest and only protect the neck region so aren't a lot of use if your baby is having regular solid food. They don't protect clothing from food spoilage so as a cause of their existence they aren't the best. They taper to a point meaning that food from the side of the mouth tend to go on the clothes. They are small and easy to lose, and are quite expensive per bib.
On the plus side, they are very easy to get on as they only have one stud, they do collect dribbles from teething pre-crawling babies. They are also brightly coloured so food on them doesn't show up immediately, thats important when everything a baby eats seems to be orange coloured.
These are nice to look at but have limited use outside teething drooling babies but as a fashion item they are great.
I bought this bib for my little one in a moment of impulsivity, then thought "YIKES! I've just spent nearly a tenner on 1 bib". However, when the bib arrived I realised that I hadn't been so silly after all.
The bib I purchased has a lovely floral pattern which goes with many of my daughter's outfits, and comes in a wide range of colours and patterns. It consists of a double layer of soft material, and fastens around the neck with a simple popper.
The design of the bib is such that when your baby dribbles, it is prevented from running down the neck, and I have to say it does exactly what it says on the tin. My daughter has started teething and is dribbling like crazy. This bib keeps her neck and chest dry, which other bibs have failed to do. I don't use this bib for feeding as I find muslin cloths better for that purpose.
I have found that the bib washes and drys well without any shrinkage or fading (so far). It needs no special treatment to keep it in good shape.
The only downside with this bib is the price. When people admire her bib (and they always do) I find it hard to look them in the eye when mumbling the price. But I always say that it is worth it to keep her from getting dribble rash whilst still looking like the princess that she is!
I recommend buying up to 5 of these bibs and keeping them for when baby is out and about, rather than for everyday feeding. I have since found them for sale on eBay for £7.49 including postage, which is somewhat better.
i had these recommended to me from a friend. her little one was teething and was drooling like nothing on earth! bless him.
i was looking for a bib that i could have on but it not look like a bib if that makes sense? i like having a bib on just in case there is a little accident and saves having to change her more than needed.
if that's what you are looking for then skibz are just what you need! they come in a variety of colours suitable for both boys and girls. the fabric in which they are made from is very absorbent so all that drool gets soaked in no problem! no leaking onto the little ones clothes and having big wet patches around their neckline. the bib itself fastens with a popper and when on it looks like a cute neck tie! my personal favourite is the pink polka-dot colour.
Skibz also make a newborn range too which are made from a super soft fluffy fabric which is nice and gentle against your newborns skin. Newborn bibs only come in vanilla, pink and blue though so not as big a choice as the regular skibz.
the price of skibz varies from place to place. I have seen them ranging from £4 to £10 depending on what style you want to go for. for this particular bib i wouldn't recommend buying a lot of these - maybe one for the change bag and one to wear.
overall i love these - they look good and don't look like bibs at a first glance. They are very absorbent and soak up twice as much as a normal bib would.
Well before you shoot me down for spending a ridiculous amount of money on what's essentially just a bib, I think we can all admit to a bit of impulse buying a times, especially when it comes to something quirky and different.
I came across skibz quite recently when I visited the baby show with my sister, whom is pregnant and although my babies have grown up a bit now (6yrs & 3 yrs) I went along with my sister to give her support and advice when purchasing the things she needs for my little nephew who is due in August.
Well throughout the day I was telling her to not waste money, and that babies really do not need six pairs of trainers or designer dummies and bottles etc, and then we came to a store that I'm afraid I could not resist.
Skibz are a bandana style bib, in a fantastic range of colours and patterns, such as ginghams, camouflage, animal prints, spots, strips, stars, floral and many more. They are so funky and will be a great addition to your little ones wardrobe.
They were designed by a mum from Somerset whom designed these bibs due to be unable to find a fashionable enough bib for her child to wear all day long. I don't know if I'd go that far, but I can understand that there is a gap in the market for more fashionable bibs, as they are normally pretty standard.
The reason I liked them so much, is that I have numerous pictures of my children at parties, weddings, christenings etc, where they are wearing the most gorgeous outfits and then a plastic bib on the top, which obviously was really practical and I would rather that then they ruin their clothes, but theses bibs, really add to the outfit, and although I may not of brought them on a regular basis maybe to accompany an outfit on a special occasion, I think I would have been tempted.
Now my first thought when I saw them is that although Ok they are really gorgeous and very quirky, but I expected that the quality and performance would not be up to scratch and that these were probably a waste of money.
But after reading the information given to us from the stall owner, these problems apparently were not there. The information provided by the company and their website advises that;
* Skibz are extremely soft and comfortable, fitting snugly around the child's neck to prevent moisture from dribbles or food spillages getting onto the clothes or skin.
* They're highly absorbent. We insist that Skibz not only look great - they actually work, too. Their unique double-layered backing system literally draws moisture away from the skin, eliminating soreness and chaffing under the skin.
*Skibz are made to the highest quality, with traditional rolled edge seams and an adjustable quick fastening.
Now again I'm quite sceptical and when told the price of each bib, I nearly died, a tenner per bib!!!!!! I kept thinking how many bibs I could get from Asda for that price!!!!! But I had wanted to get my sister a little present and also a friend of mine, who is very into her designer labels etc and I knew she'd love one of these....so I stood by the store humming and arghhing for ages, and then the stall owner offered me a two for 15 pounds deal, so I thought id try them out. I love a bargain.
I picked a blue gingham one for my sister's baby, and a floral one for my friend's daughter.
Now although my sister's baby has not been born yet so I have not seen hers in action, I have seen my friends daughters wear hers many a time.
My friend loves them, she advises me that not only do they keep her daughter really well protected from all her dribble and milk etc, she also said that they look fantastic with her outfits and that everyone comments on how beautiful they are, she has since brought quite a few others and she advises me that her best deals have been on eBay.
Another friend of mine, attempted to make her own version of these, and although still very cute, they were not as absorbent as the Skibz brand.
So although like other mums would think, it is a very expensive bib, I think as an impulse buy, or a gift, or for a bib for a special occasion like a wedding, Anyway in my opinion it's a great item that many mums will love.
Price range from 10 pounds and can be brought from thier online shop, or from numerous stockists throughout the UK (see thier website for details)
Skibz resemble an item of clothing as opposed to a bib therefore they can be worn all day, making them ideal for dribblers, teething babies or purely as a fashion statement. Skibz works like a bib and looks like a scarf. Its design was driven by a need for high absorbency combined with comfort and style. Skibz are here to enhance the appe
