Skibz / Dribble bibs

Any clues about what brand are the best? My three month old DD is starting to dribble massively and soak through her clothes. I've heard of Skibz but what are other brands like and how do they compare? Advice, ideas and even links to good sites to buy from would be very welcome!

Thank you :)

I have a very dribbly (sp?) 10-month old and bought him 1 Skibz, 1 Bipi Stuff, 1 My Little Patch and 1 Dribble On (for testing / comparisons sake :)

My favourite was the Bipi Stuff. Second favourite was Dribble On. Both soft and absorbent, nice shape, not too stiff. They were also the cheapest of the 4 that I bought!

Thank you! I think I need to do some testing of different brands - nice excuse for online shopping! I'll have a look at all those brands.

I have loads of bibbles, they are good value but don't wash so well and don't look very smart. I have bought quite a few from here as the fabrics are lovely as well as being functional

The dribbling got to an all time high today and as we were passing Mothercare anyway we dropped in and got a two set of towelling backed ones for now but when she naps tomorrow I'm going to have a good look online and buy some.

Anyone used Funky Giraffe?

Meant to say I got mine at www.easynappies.co.uk/ some of the prices are pretty good and they delivered really quickly.

Right, the Mothercare little triangular bibs are crap but their towel backed ones are good. I've ordered a Bubba, a Babble, a DribbleOn and a HipHipBaby from easynappies, and I've also ordered a batch of Bibbles to get the discount and a batch of Funky Giraffe (who are the cheapest and were recommended by a friend). So far Bibbles and Funky Giraffe are the best value but it remains to be seen when they all arrive which will be the best at handling the drool!

I'd suggest having a look at Big Birds Boutique bigbirdsboutique.co.uk they have great bibs with great fabrics at cheap prices.

when I had my son a year ago, I bought some dribble bibs in mothercare, which were fine, but then looking at them thought "I can make these" So I did, I now sell them along with lots of other things, www.facebook.com/#!/groups/216352025856/

I use Funky Giraffe, they are great! The best, in my opinion, are these for quality but are quite expensive. I've got 2, been using them for over a year and are still in good condition.
