Baby’s Mealtime Bib: Silicone
When it comes to mealtime, silicone bibs often triumph as parents go-to choice, but the preference for a fabric or silicone is up for debate.
Many families prefer silicone bibs because they are designed to catch food and can be easily wiped down or tossed in the dishwasher for the next meal. Again, the Loulou Lollipop Silicone Bib, a customer favourite among parents in Prince George, BC, stands out for its unique design that keeps the pouch open, making mealtime cleanup a breeze.
The Hybrid Bibs: Absorbent & Water Resistant

This is great for parents who are looking for a bib that will grow with the child, or if they have a heavy drooler and want more water resistance to keep clothing dry (because bandana bibs do a great job at catching small amounts but can get saturated and wet clothes).
