Extending the Life of Baby Bibs

As a bib maker, I’ve become acquainted with all sorts of bibs.  And I still prefer to use the simplest forms.  A tiny bib for the bottle and extra drooly days, a decent sized bib for the infant to early toddler days, and a giant bib for older toddlers or especially messy meals.

If you’re like me, you have a ton of infant sized bibs lying around.  And lots of burp cloths you probably rarely use unless you have a baby who spits up alot.  So, instead of making a ton of really large bibs for my own children, I make a few and then use the infant bibs the majority of the time.

To get more life out of those bibs that are wide enough, but not long enough, add your rarely used burp cloths!  Place the bib on baby as normal, then turn the burp cloth lengthwise, tuck it under the bib and around your child’s waist.  Wa-la.  No need to pack up the bibs and burpies, you can get life out of them well into toddler hood.  You know, until your child proclaims himself too big for a bib.  Like my two-year old 😉

Tuck the burp cloth under the bib and around your child.

One thought on “Extending the Life of Baby Bibs

  1. Using baby bibs and some old burp cloths of your newborns are the simplest way
    to do especially in mealtime and it is very helpful. A lot of baby bibs to clean by the end of the day makes it hard and tired, so why would you still use a lot of bibs the whole time if you can have the burp cloths together with your baby bibs. Today, there are baby bibs with pockets that can be clean easily but if you are still a fan of using regular bibs then these particular thing ( burp cloths and baby bibs) will surely help you. Just try the alternative way, it will less the mess as well.
