My kids drooled SO MUCH! We went threw the 8+ bibs a day but with all the blankets and clothes I was doing a load of baby laundry every 2-3 days We had about 40ish bibs and we had to replace a few because the velcro or stains but we used them until shortly after 1st birthdays!

My DD is 3 months old, and on a good day we only go through one, bu ton a bad day we have gone through up to 5.  We also keep a burp cloth handy so we have gone through 1-2 of those a day.  My DD is a spitter though so sometimes one big spit up can ruin a bib.  My friend’s daughter never used bibs, and never really spit up and drooled, so all baby’s are different.

Once they’re a bit older and into feeding themselves, I reccomend getting one of the plastic ones. Something like this. They’re really amazing because they catch all of the food that LO drops AND all you have to do is rinse them off when you’re done with them so you really only need one. Two tops. Plus it’s one less thing to put in the laundry ; )

We never really used cloth bibs, so I actually had a couple unopened packages of bibs I regifted to a friend when DD was about a year old.  🙂

Do you have a lot of friends/family/co-workers that you think will be buying you baby presents?  I found that a lot of people give bibs and those layette sets that come with a matching bib as new baby presentes and shower gifts.  I think I maybe bought 6 cloth bibs before I had my daughter, and we ended up with like 40 in the end because people kept gifting them to us.

My muchkin is almost 3 months and we rarely use bibs yet. I really don’t see a need for them yet.  The only time we do use them is if know going somewhere where the clothes he has on need to be spit up free. Other wise I just use a diaper wipe to wipe up the spit up when he spits up on his clothes. We use a lot of burb clothes though.

If you can find or knit your own bibs, that’s best.  They are so much more absorbent than other types of bibs, and maybe this is gross, but I find that if I let it dry, I can use it again before washing it.  Plus, they’re way cute.

If toddlers drool so much, then you need more than 4 bibs but if not 3 bibs will do. Babies are extremely a drool monster and they need to change their baby bibs if it gets wet totally to keep the cloths dry. That’s the main purpose of using baby bibs, right? 3 or more bibs for all the mealtime and the extra bib is for the drool.
