Baby bibs are worn around the neck to protect baby’s clothes from spilled food. Kiddos under two are famously messy eaters, whether it's spoon-fed purée or mashed potatoes. You can count on them to find a way to get their food all over, and bibs help you avoid changing their clothes after each meal.
Bibs are traditionally made of cloth, and they secure around the neck with snaps, buttons or velcro. Fabrics tend to be comfortable and are conveniently machine-washable. There are also silicone bibs, which are usually dishwasher-safe but much stiffer than their cloth counterparts.
