Does anyone have a good suggestion for a bib that stays on, is easy to clean, & keeps messes contained?

I loved this bib, until DS learned that he could pull it off, and does at every meal.

We have some of these bibs, but I they get a yucky smell after awhile - maybe I'm not washing them properly? I wash them in warm water with dish soap & air dry.

Any tips would be appreciated!
Thanks!!

We have a bunch like the second ones you linked to. I wash them in the washing machine, and dry in the dryer. I have never had a problem with stink, and some of them were handed down from my older DS.

I bought those bibs from IKEA, and any liquidy food goes right through them. I take his shirt off and use a hand towel and a clothes pin. It covers his lap under the tray for crumby/messy food. I don't know what I will do once he figures out he can pull it off his neck though!

Yeah, you can't put them in the dryer or they loose their water resistance. I seem to remember though that the directions said a quick turn with the iron will restore that property.

Bumkins makes full arm bibs - they are bit more expensive, and tie at the neck.

The IKEA bibs are the best we have found. They stay good for quite a while. I do not wash them after each use (wipe down as necessary, wash once a week or so). I am too lazy to iron them, and it took at least a year, maybe longer, for the first pair I had to be beat up enough that I bought a new set of 2.

I have found that using a small terrycloth type bib (to catch any liquid coming down the chin/neck) under a sleeved bib (bumkins or IKEA) is VERY effective.

Thanks for all the replies!

I washed the second kind of bibs (not the Bjorn) in the washing machine & the smell is gone! I used hot water & baking soda & laundry detergent & then dried in the dryer. I hope it stays away!! If not, I'll be looking into those Ikea bibs.

There are a lot of good bibs for mealtimes and every mothers have different choices/taste when it comes to their baby's bibs. For me, I have only know the good one and the best bibs in whole my life. They are that type of silicone baby bibs. I could say that they are really great because they are useful and free from those toxic materials.
