Good, better, best: 3 of the best baby bibs you can get today

When Baby starts to teethe, Baby begins to drool. Incessantly. Like a bulldog.

In a matter of minutes, your little one may soak their clothes, their skin, and anyone who dares approach that adorably sloppy mouth. Of course, while you could keep patting, drying, and wiping that sweet and shiny face (and neck and body!), you could also invest in some quality drool bibs. They will keep your sweetheart’s clothes drool-free — and save you the trouble of multiple outfit changes. Ready to get one (or two) for your leaky-mouthed love bug? Skip the baby store; we know exactly what you need. Here are three of our favorite options.

Good: Parent’s Choice Cotton Mock-Neck Drool Baby Bib

Made with plush cotton and terry knit, this one is soft and ribbed to absorb milk spills, drool, and other mystery liquids. (Oh, the thrills of early parenthood — ain’t it glamorous?) With its high neck, it is designed to help keep Baby’s chubby neck skin folds dry, clean, and stink-free. (Seriously, have you ever smelled a baby’s neck folds?) Machine washable, this is a versatile option that is also great for messy puree eaters — outfit protection at its best!

Why we like it:

  • Great for drooling babies
  • Great for messy eaters
  • Machine washable

Scoop one up at Target; you can snag it ASAP with curbside pickup, two-day shipping, or opt for same-day delivery with your Shipt membership.
