    Thanks I always thought that they'd irritate the poor lil mite's neck suppose they'd be better for saving his clothes but don't wanna irritate him

    We didn't use plastic backed ones until he was 6 months old and weaning and tbh even then it was easier to just strip him down! Lol x I know a few mums who love bandana bibs.

    I would wait till later, get the little velcro or popper ones, or I found esp when breastfeeding the long cloths not muslins, but Toysrus do them, like long over the shoulder things made of terry type fabric, good for burping to pretect your clothes too, and no poppers or velco to undo , when they have gone to sleep while feeding, you can just whisk it of the front of baby where you rested it under chin

    I was the same as a tiny baby I used muslin and then towelling bibs, bandana were perfect for teething and when he liked to hold the bottle himself and plastic backed were the best for weaning!!! It's all down to personal preference though!!

    My baby has serious vomitting issues so only the plastic ones will do for me. I don't put them on him at night though, we have a mountain of bibs I'd say keep them all, you never know!
