I’m home for the holidays and want to take advantage of all the deals. I’ve read that some babies can go through around 8 bibs per day!? How many does your little one go through? How many bibs do you own? Did you find yourself buying more bibs as your baby got older?
On the flip-side, do you have too many bibs? Are some left unused?

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 live in Sweden so the BabyBjörn bibs are really common. But I want to stock up on the normal bibs because it’s just sooo much cheaper here. For instance, I found a pack of 3 Carter’s teething bibs for $6.99 at Ross. I’m not even sure if I can find Carter’s stuff there and if so, I’d be paying over retail because of the added taxes.
So I went a little crazy on bibs. I have:
12 Carter’s teething bibs
6 Lamze infant bibs (nice and thick)
5 pack of Timberland bibs (I only bough them because they were on super sale)
and a few misc bibs that come with outfits
My Mom thinks I went overboard and I’m thinking about returning the thin Timerland bibs and a pack of the Carter’s teething bibs (which would leave us 9 teething bibs total).
It sounds a little crazy to try to buy all I can now but it’ll just save us so much money! And we live outside a large city so it’ll be such a pain to have to make a special trip for it. My other option would be Amazon.uk but the prices are still high compared to here.
Can one have too many bibs?

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.

All my friends and family live in the States and I don’t really know many people in Sweden. I’m not even sure if they even do baby showers like we do here — they’re not into showers at all, actually. For instance, there’s no such thing as a wedding registry there! And I haven’t seen anything about baby registries at all. Plus, I work from home.
I’m also still early into my pregnancy, so I haven’t announced it yet and it’ll be safe to announce once we leave back to Sweden I’ve told a few close friends and family and have already gotten some clothes from them, but I doubt I’ll have a real baby shower since I’m so early on. It would be different if I visited during the end of my 2nd trimester instead of during my 1st.
I know it might seem odd to buy so much baby stuff so early on, but we’re fine with it regardless.
I think I will return some of the bibs though and maybe get some blankets instead.

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.
