best baby bibs

Having a good stash of bibs for your baby is essential from day dot. When your baby is a newborn, you'll go through plenty for spit-up from milk feeds, then there will be dribble from teething and finally solid food as they begin weaning.

They'll be a parenting must-have well into toddlerhood, so it's a good idea to invest in some good quality ones that will last you.

You can get all sorts of different bibs suited to your baby's needs, from silicone pockets to soft fabrics and adjustable neck ties. To make your life easier, we've rounded up some of our top picks for your baby.

These cute bibs are one of the highest rated on Amazon and the reviews are positively glowing. The attached teething chew means you'll never lose a teething toy again, and you can wipe up any dribble with the super absorbent cloth bib.

Another great long sleeved option, these bibs from Baby Mori have cute woodland designs and are made from 100% PU with polyester backing. They're machine washable and have comfortable elasticated cuffs to protect your little one's clothes from stains.

This Cheeky Chompers teething bib is great for babies who might not have the range of motion to hold a teething toy, as it has an integrated plastic teether as part of the bib. The adjustable poppers mean the bib will grow with your baby and they're reversable too.

Sophie Knight, mum to Eli, said: "I love this bib and found it really useful when Eli was teething. Not only was it great for mopping up dribble and milk, but he liked chewing on the silicone corner. I love any product that does two things at once!" 

aden + anais have a huge range of gorgeous baby bits, including these baby bibs. They're made from three layers of 100% organic cotton which stays soft wash after wash. The adjustable popper neck tie grows with your baby and there's a selection of patterns and colours available.

These beautiful bibs are made from 100% organic cotton and come in a selection of animal-themed designs. They're suitable for babies 0-12 months and probably not as good as a silicone bib for baby-led weaning.

These easy-to-clean silicone bibs are great for weaning babies and have a special non-chafing neck band to keep your baby comfortable at meal times. The deep pocket catches any mess and they come in a range of gorgeous colours.

Waterproof, stain resistant and high-chair adaptable, this weaning bib is a messy toddler hero. It comes in a range of cute colours and (hopefully) will help your cleanup operation become a thing of the past.

Silicone bibs are a great choice if you're weaning because the stiff lip at the bottom will catch any dribbles or chunks of food. These ones are safe for teething babies to chomp on too. 

Long sleeved baby bibs are a godsend for busy mums - covering your baby from neck to wrist while they're experimenting with food will save you time wiping and changing outifts. These ones are some of the top-rated long sleeved bibs on Amazon, and they come in a range of sweet colours and patterns.

These weaning bibs from NatureBond are great for eating on the go, as they come with a special waterproof pouch designed for outdoor use.
