When I first saw a dribble bib, otherwise known as a bandana bib, I thought oh how cute, but failed to see the practicality of them. Surely such bibs wouldn't catch food remnants when bubs eats a meal or snack?
When my second son arrived, I received two gifted dribble bibs, and wouldn't you know it, they have become the unexpected necessity.
The name should be self explanatory, because dribble bibs.. well they catch dribble of course. When baby no.2 completely saturates his bib, particularly during times of teething, I simply replace one dribble bib with another, without changing an entire wet outfit. Did I also mention dribble bibs look cool too?
If you can sew and you have the time, dribble bibs are really easy to make. You can find a whole stack of bib patterns for free via pinterest. Otherwise, there are plenty of dribble bibs available to buy, most are which are reasonably priced and often made by stay at home/work at home Mums, so you are supporting small businesses when you buy.
