I use terry cloth so it is very absorbent. My bibs are large and cover almost all of baby. My kids wear these bibs until they are 3-4, because they need it. Click on my name and it will show you what they look like from my blog. Good Luck.

Resadesign.com has some great new bibs — dribblers –

http://resadesign.com/bib_list.html

They’ve got vinyl on the back so they soak well but I LOVE the patterns and the size. Sometimes they get so gigantic you can’t even see your kid — just a gigunda bib!

I don’t like the vinyl, because it ends up yellowing and cracking. Oilcloth often makes my kids get a rash. I have had great luck using 100% cotton fabric, and quilters batting in the middle. It’s called warm and natural. It’s 100% cotton, and uses no glues or anything to hold it together. It seems thick enough to wick up whatever spills, plus I make them wide enough to go right to their shoulders (where we KNOW food gets spread.)I have some bibs that I made for my 1st, and other than being a little faded, are going strong for my 4th.

They are thick and very absorbant (baby #4 would get a rash if I used plastic or oilcloth — he required 100% cotton). That thick chenille did the trick!

We were given a few to use with my first son (now 3), and after NUMEROUS uses and washings, I am still using them with son #2 (now 8 months). They are sturdy, functional, yet lightweight enough for baby to feel comfortable wearing them. As a bonus, the patterns are so intriguing that both of my sons enjoyed playing with them when they were practicing “waiting patiently” (in the store, on a plane, whatver!).

So fun, you can make bibs or splat mats or whatever out and make it waterproof :D Have fun.

I’m also addicted to Beth’s Market Bags out of oilcloth that can be found on Ebay. They are lined inside in oilcloth as well and would make great bags for the pool, park or diapers etc.
