Skibz Dribble Bib
Advantages: Good looking, mops up dribble
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.
