Non-toxic Baby Bibs

In the beginning newborns are fed breast milk or formula feeding. To protect their clothes, they usually need no more than burp cloths. If breastfeeding is not possible or low breast milk supply occurs, baby puree is added to the diet. Eating the first pureed table foods is a challenge for both the baby and the mother. Since the baby cannot yet coordinate its tongue and swallow optimally, a portion of the solid food often ends up on its clothes. And now, at the latest, drool bibs becomes among the most essential piece of baby cloth. It protects the top from any food or liquid spills. Like almost all baby articles, bibs are in direct contact with skin and are also quite likely to be put in the mouth. Against this background, baby bibs should be made of absorbent natural fibres and be free of harmful substances. In this way, bibs are harmless for baby‘s skin and make a big contribution to less dirty washing, laundry detergent and extend the life of outerwear. A win-win situation for parents and environment! However, fabrics used in bibs need to be easy to wash and dry. Usually, one bib per day is enough to cover the needs of the little ones.

Bibs in ecological quality

From an ecological point of view, bibs meet all the requirements placed on baby clothes. To absorb liquids and solid food, the best fabrics for bibs are soft, absorbent types, including medium to heavy organic cotton, terrycloth, flannel and pure natural fibres. Soft dual super absorptive cotton on the front to absorb drools, dribbles and spit ups, keeps the drools from soaking into baby’s clothing, thus keep the baby dry all day, pure organic cotton on the back which and the soft material will protect the teething baby free from cheek, neck and chin rash.

Cotton from certified organic farming is cultivated without pesticides and fertilisers. In organic cultivation, genetically modified substances and organisms as well as any use of chemicals, e.g. as harvesting aids, are also taboo. Harvesting is traditionally done by hand. The bibs and burp cloths are also made under eco-friendly conditions. Seals such as Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), The Green Button, OEKO-TEX® STANDARD guarantee that the organic cotton, bamboo and other natural fibres have been tested for harmful substances. Thus, organic bibs are characterised by good skin compatibility and protect the infants from toxins and allergens.

Types Of Baby Bibs

The classic newborn bib is a square piece of cloth with a round neckline to put around baby’s neck. They even come either with ribbons, nickel-free fasteners, or a Velcro fastener which are set on the neck’s side. The shape covers the chest area and thus prevents dirtying clothes while eating.

Active babies and restless toddlers sometimes tug at the bib. Long sleeved bibs with elastic cuffs keeping the mess off clothes and elastic sleeves will stop and mess from falling down the sleeves keeping the clothes underneath spotless.

Made from premium cotton, the pullover baby bibs will make the little one feel pampered and comfortable while eating and drinking. Toddlers love to move, twist, dance, and bounce in their high chairs. These burp cloths are built to move with the kid.

Baby drool bibs and children food catcher with pocket are practical, but not recommended from an ecological point of view. A maximum of feeding bibs are made using plastic materials which is petroleum-based and cannot be recycled in an environmentally friendly way.

A bandana bib is a functional, beautiful, and also stylish. They are triangles in shapes and made from certified organic cotton worn by babies to catch baby spit or can also be used as a stylish item. They are great for drool and spit up. They’re ideal to catch baby teething spits to keep the baby dry as well as prevent rash caused due to drool. They can fit many different sizes of children because they have two nickel-free snaps at the back that fit a range of ages from 3 months up to around 2 years.

Conclusion: Bibs made of organic cotton, waffle pique and organic terrycloth are soft, cuddly and absorbent

Bibs made of absorbent organic cotton are highly recommended. The natural fibres are very skin-friendly, cuddly, hard-wearing and easy to clean. Bibs made of recycled cotton are also a sustainable alternative, because natural fibres that are already in the material cycle are reused. Children's bibs are usually machine-washable at 40°C to 60°C.

Greenpicks offers sustainably produced baby bibs and burp cloth with bright colours and fun designs protecting toddler’s clothes from feeding messes. If the bib is no longer needed for eating, it can be reused for later on when the infant starts teething.
