One of the most common signs of teething for babies is drooling. Both of my kids started drooling as early as 3 months. While my daughter stopped drooling after her first set of teeth popped out when she was 7 months old; my son didn’t stop drooling at all! He’s been having a drooling fest even after he’s had his 6th tooth. He’d probably get 4-5 bibs soaked in a day; and I would always find myself using his burp cloths as bibs because he already used them all up. Although he’s no longer drooling as much as before these days.
My son started wearing bibs when he started teething and still has been wearing them today. The problem I have with bibs is they don’t look good at all. I know, they look cute with those adorable text clothing companies had written on them but they’re just not stylish. Why would I need stylish bibs?
Well, because I love taking pictures of my kids doing just about anything. Yeah, my phone is filled with photos of my kids sitting, playing, smiling, eating, anything. And if they’re wearing bibs, I have to remove the bib first so I could get a really cute picture of them; and then the moment’s gone because they got distracted. Or, if we’re all dressed up wearing coordinating outfits and having our family picture taken; the picture would look perfect because everyone’s looking or at least one of the kids is smiling (you probably know how rare you can get those kinds of photos). EXCEPT… I’d notice that my son has his bib on and I couldn’t really see what he’s wearing except the bib soaked in his drool. We’d then try to take some more photos without the bib but the kids are no longer in the mood for photos. What a bummer, right? So today, I’ve partnered with Bazzle Baby to give you the most stylish bibs I’ve ever seen.

About The Bibs
I was provided with Bitsy Bib in houndstooth, Banda Bib in teal & grey feathers, and BandO Bib in teal circles & lines.
The Bitsy Bib is designed for the littlest eaters that need coverage and demand style! Super absorbent and soft, babies will want to wear them for more than just meal time! You can shop this bib here.
The Banda Bib works like a bib, by drawing moisture away from clothes and skin, but looks really fashionable, actually part of the outfit. You can shop this bib here.
The BandO Bib is an infinity scarf-style bib that catches every dribble and is a fashionable accessory for every outfit! The stretchy fabric lets the BandO Bib slip right over your little one’s head and sit comfortably all day. You can shop this bib here.
Using The Bibs
I am absolutely in love with how soft the fleece backing is for both Bitsy and Banda bibs; I actually find myself wanting to touch them over and over! I love that both of these bibs are adjustable so they fit my son perfectly; they have 2-3 snaps which means my son can grow into it. And the snap closure really comes in handy because my son can easily pull off those bibs with velcro closure; but he’s unable to do that with these.
I like that the Bitsy Bib is big enough and covers most of the upper body which is perfect for feeding your baby; because that always end up messy no matter what you do. While I usually don’t let my kids use bibs at home when eating (I let them be messy when at home), I found this particularly useful when dining out with them. They normally wear really cute clothes whenever we go out and I’d hate for food stains to ruin a really cute outfit. No, I’m not the type to go crazy over food stains on clothes but I just find that I am unable to remove most food stains if we’re dining out; because the stains sets in since I am unable to soak it in soap and liquid right after our meal as compared to when we’re at home.
I love the idea behind the Banda Bib – it works like a bib; making sure that my son’s clothes are protected from his drool or any snack he consumes throughout the day; while looking like it’s part of his outfit. It is smaller than the Bitsy Bib though so it won’t cover as much of his clothes while eating; which the Bitsy Bib does a great job in. This is perfect to catch his drool on those days when we want to have an entire day at home doing nothing but relaxing; or for when we’re in an indoor playground or the mall. I can also see him wearing this outdoors during the warmer months (that’s if he’s still drooling).
Of the 3 bibs, the BandO Bib is probably my favorite. It is very stretchy so I didn’t have to struggle putting it on my son’s neck. The fabric is thick enough to protect him when it’s a little bit cold outside while still making sure that he doesn’t drool over his clothes. But it’s not too thick so I don’t think it will be enough to keep him warm when it gets freezing. Since my kids love the outdoors, this will be perfect during our morning and afternoon walks.
I have been looking for scarves for kids but haven’t found one; so I’ve always let my kids use mine whenever we go out during the colder months. I usually have to wrap it around their necks 2-3 times which makes it uncomfortable for them; which is why I’m happy I got to know about BandO Bib. They’ll get to use their own scarves and they’d be comfortable in it!!!
PLUS… Don’t you just love how all these bibs complement his outfits? I know I do!
My children’s skin easily turn red whenever they come in contact with anything rough, especially my son’s; but his skin didn’t react when I use these bibs to wipe his face. So that makes me think that the materials used for these bibs are gentle and soft enough for those with sensitive skin like my kids.
Since my son’s drooling has significantly lessened, we weren’t able to test how absorbent these bibs are if you have a baby who drools a lot the entire day as compared to the traditional bibs that we’ve used. However, my daughter did use the Bitsy bib once while eating noodle soup and I was surprised with how dry her clothes are after eating. Usually whenever she eats noodle soup, her top would always be soaking wet and there will be noodles all over her body. Let me just say that I didn’t have to change her clothes after she ate when she used the Bitsy Bib which was really great!
I especially adore how stylish these bibs are which means I don’t have to remove it before trying to take a picture of my kids (and with them) and risk the moment being gone! I can just take pictures of my son (or with his sister) whenever I want, even when he’s wearing a bib because it looks like it’s part of his outfit.
Since the price of these bibs is pretty much very similar to the traditional ones, I’d probably get these instead if I’m going to have another baby; because they look so much better than those. I would definitely recommend these to other moms who have drooling kids but want them to look stylish all the time.
