  • how old is she? sounds like she's teething. they sell bibs everywhere that are different and thicker even, you just need to go to shopping to find ones you think will work. GL

  • All babies druel like crazy, especially when teething. Oxy worked wonders for me on colored clothes & I always would bleach the white stuff. Buy white bibs so that you can bleach them. OR, go to a thrift store & buy some used stuff that you won't mind ruining or throwing away. I had my DD wear lots of white, just so that i could bleach it & not ruin it. I would save nicer/colorful clothes for when we went out. BUT, whites can still stain. But, i did not care after a while. I just wanted to be able to use bleach! LOL! But, if you don't want to do that, use oxy clean. Clean in hot water & rinse in warm water.

     BUT, don't combine oxy with bleach! Oxy has oxygen in it & bleach neutralizes oxygen which just makes it turn to water. So, never combine them.

  • i found some nice thick ones at wal-mart! and i changed her bibs about once every few hours. but we had like 100 so no big deal! buy some cheap ones and just keep changing them out and as for the smell try a stain remover. good luck!

  • I never used bibs.  My kids just always had wet clothes, lol.  Bibs seemed pointless to me.  The kids always pulled them off or pushed them to their backs.  My 3mo drools like crazy (I guess he's teething already) and he HATES being in wet clothes so between his drooling and his spitting up I have to change his clothes like 5 times a day otherwise he throws a fit.  I'm thinking of knitting some bibs out of thick cotton for him.  That way I can make them as big as I need.

  • THe bibs with the waterproof backing are better. (I got mine at Target) The cloth ones just get wet.
