Best Baby Bibs

Make mealtimes way, way less messy.

If you have a baby, you need a bib. Otherwise, you’ll find way more crusty food on the floor, then fresh purees in your kid’s mouth.

Whether your baby spits up often (perhaps due to reflux) or delights in smearing the contents of his highchair tray all over himself, do yourself a favor and stock up on an assortment of bibs. These are the best baby bibs from Amazon, whether you’re looking for something lightweight, wipeable, machine-washable or all of the above. Bon appetit! 

This simple silicone bib also comes with a pocket to catch food bits before they hit the floor.

Pros: It’s easy to wipe down (or toss in the dishwasher), and the neckband adjusts as your child grows.

Cons: Some babies found the bib heavy and the necklace-style clasp uncomfortable, and parents reported that it was too easy to remove (and throw, while it was still full of food).

This kerchief-style baby bandana cotton bib set, typically used for drooling and teething, comes from Moon and Back, a new Amazon-only line from the creators of Hanna Andersson.

Pros: A baby wearing a bandana is irresistible, the cotton is organic and Hanna Andersson products are known for their serious quality and longevity.

Cons: One reviewer with an especially drooly baby said they could stand to be a bit more absorbent. At $6 a pop, they’re also a touch on the pricey side.

This lightweight bib is generously sized to cover shoulders and has a pocket for corralling crumbs.

Pros: It’s affordable, there are 25 pattern options and it can be washed in the machine. The bib closes over the back of the shoulder, so it sits more comfortable and usually resists baby’s tugging.

Cons: Because of the unstructured material, food might slide straight over the pocket, instead of into it. Despite the design, some wiley toddlers can pull them off, and parents also claimed that the water-resistant backing started to peel away after a few months.

Parents of messy eaters, take heart: When a regular bib won't cut it, there's this smock-like option to save both your little one's outfit and your sanity.

Pros: For babies who just hate bibs, this doesn’t feel like one. It’s affordable, waterproof and there’s a handy pocket that catches food and also doubles as a storage pouch. As your child grows, it can be used for art projects as well. 

Cons: There were very few negative reviews, other than the comments that it runs small, so make sure to size up.

These oversized bamboo muslin bibs can also double as burp cloths.

Pros: The bib’s cut resembles a cape, so it helps protect your baby’s outfit, and the four layers of fabric are well poised to absorb milk, formula, food and drool. It’s also machine-washable, and the fabric is soft and lightweight against baby’s tender skin.

Cons: Obviously wiping down is not an option, you’ll have to wash each time. The light-colored material may show stains easily. Some parents reported that the bib was too delicate to withstand laundering, despite following the care instructions.

This bib combines the comfort of a soft bib with a structured silicone pocket to help keep messes contained.

Pros: The bib’s soft fabric is comfortable on (most) babies’ necks but also withstands yanking, and the top part can be rolled up and secured into the pocket when you’re on the go.

Cons: Parents complained that the fabric half of the bib was prone to smells and stains, despite careful washing.
