Dd is eating lots and lots of messy finger foods. I really need a good bib. Sometimes I feel like I should just put a bucket around her neck to catch everything that falls. I got a couple "natural" oilcloth bibs but the pockets get nasty and I can't get them clean. I'm thinking of getting something like this:

Can anyone recommend a good, sturdy, food-catching bib? Thanks!

I can relate! DS loves getting his food all over the place.

I have a Tidy Turtle bib with sleeves and love it. The neck is adjustable with velcro so you get a nice fit. And it has snaps at the bottom, so you can make a pocket if you want. I wash it in the sink with my dishes if it's not too dirty and hang it to dry.

I found mine at a thrift store for $3.

I our Bumkins bibs!!!! It doesn't have an permanent open pocket but it "pooches" out enough to catch most dropped food. It dries super fast and comes in a large variety of patterns. It also has excellent reviews on Amazon. Oh and no harmful materials in it! And made in USA!

We have this one: http://www.bumkins.com/shop/pc/SuperBib-49p17.htm

Another Bumkins bib fan here! DD has used her bib for almost a year and a half. It is in really great condition, too.

I like dishtowels cut in half and gathered with quilt binding sewn on for ties. They are long enough to cover the lap and catch most foods, cheap, easy to make, and so absorbant!

Another vote for Dishtowels. We have tons of bibs but I always forget them and a dishtowel is easier to grab.

We love these bibs from Ikea. They are very similar to the bumpkins bibs, same material, same nice big pocket, same easy care, but much cheaper. We wash them with our towels or the baby's clothes.

We were on vacation last week and therefore ate out a lot. I would use the Ikea bib at lunch, quickly wash it out in the restaurant bathroom sink, hang it on the stroller or put it in the trunk and it would be clean and dry for dinner (actually it would dry in about 1 hour).

I do not like the dex bibs.

Bibs that are like a kit towel with a neck hole in it. Get them cheap at www.jiffyshirts.com

We also love the bumkins. DD has used the same bibs for years and will be able to pass them down. Great quality and really cute prints.

When we are at home I just strip lo down to a clean prefold and pop him in the sink after eating for a spray off. When we are out I got this super cheap plastic bib that is all soft plastic with a little pocket at Kroger.

We love the smock-style with sleeves from Ikea. Ordinary (sleeveless) bibs don't cut it for my messy eater. In fact, most of the time I just strip him down and let him eat naked. After breakfast, we hop in the shower together and after dinner he either goes right to the bath or gets sponged off in the kitchen sink. Luckily he loves getting wet!

Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.

I bought my favorite bib at amazon. It has a crumb catcher and yes, it works very well. It catches food and it keeps mealtime clean.
