Just curious but H wears a bib everyday. He can sometimes be sick (although he isn't what I'd class as a sicky baby) but does dribble a bit and likes to eat his bib! I thought it was the norm for babies but noticed he seems to be one of the only ones wearing them. I'm just not sure what others do - do some babies not dribble or sick??

J hardly wore bibs, even when weaning. He wasn't a dribbly/sickly baby.
He'd pull his bibs off, so gave up with them.

E won't tolerate anything round her neck so the hundreds of bibs I've got are a waste. She's very dribble monster atm but I keep just wiping with a muslin.

No neither of mine did. If they were out or at the cm they'd wear long sleeves ones for lunch but otherwise no. They weren't sickly babies thiugh

A does as he needs one for feeding (he dribbles a lot) and then he usually keeps it on as he can be sick watery milk an hour later.

Zoe had a muslin tied around her neck pretty much constantly as she had reflux so was sick a lot, would add a bib when she was feeding. Once we started weaning at 6 mths this eased up and then she would only wear a bib when actually feeding.
I think if I have another refluxy baby then I was buy some of the dribble bandanas as think they look cute.

A wears a bib constantly as he is so dribbly. Usually they get changed every few hours too, if we don't then it soaks through to his vest and skin.
I'd like more dribble bibs but I think they're a horrendous amount of money for a tiny triangle of fabric! My best friend has bought us a few of the large ones that you stretch over the head which are great but not very 'fashionable' haha. The velcro ones are useless as the velcro goes very quickly.

Nope. I used muslins for everything! When he was about one I got some of those skibs things as he was really dribbley at that point.

I never used bibs on A until we started weaning but J was very dribbly so I had to use the bandana bibs on him cos he was constantly soaking.

Glad it's not just me who needs bibs for their lo! Saisi we have the same problem if wet bibs, it's q horrible!
N didn't tend to wear bibs, but we did put the bandana style ones on him when he was exceptionally dribbley with teething. That was rare though.

E had dribble bibs (like bandanas) when first teething, when she's eating she has a Baby Bjorn Smock x

Dribzz here too with #1, nothing on #2 as yet but she is swathed in muslins when she feeds.
I am not a fan of traditional bibs and got bought loads with I.

Sometimes when feeding him in the early days, say up to 12 weeks, but rarely after that. I used the long sleeved bibs when weaning him and sometimes the bandana style bibs - but that was more to jazz up a plain top than for functional use.
Now at 2, although he wears one at nursery when eating, I can not get him to put it on or keep it on. He's not that messy now though so it doesn't really matter.
