One of the most surprising things you’ll learn when you have a baby is how many different types of bibs there are — and how many you’ll end up using! Whether drinking from bottles, eating solids, blowing raspberries, or teething, babies are constantly making messes that require outfit changes if they’re not wearing bibs.

There are different types of baby bib fabrics depending on what you’re using them for. Milk and drool bibs are usually made of cotton or other absorbent materials to soak up liquid, while food bibs are made of silicone or synthetic materials so they can be easily wiped clean. You’ll want to buy bibs that can protect skin and clothing underneath, are easy to clean, and feel comfy for your baby to wear. Not to mention, they should be cute for taking photos of your baby!

The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab reviews baby products of all kinds, including burp cloths, diapers, diaper bags, sleep sacks, and more. These bibs are the ones our experts use at home and have top-rated feedback from users, innovative features, and adorable designs. Read on to learn more about our favorite bibs, but to summarize, the best baby bibs you can buy are:

This waterproof bib is made of fabric (not plastic), but still works wonders: It easily wipes clean after meals, is machine washable and air-dries quickly, and is lightweight and easy to carry. There's a velcro closure in the back and the bib itself covers baby's entire chest and shoulders. This style's designed for babies 6-24 months old, but there's a Starter Bib for younger infants if you need it before then. Plus, our pros have used this one on their own kids well after they turned two years old. It comes in lots of fun designs, including Disney Princess and Superhero prints.

You know you'll go through lots of bibs, so do yourself a favor and stock up. With this 10-pack, you get each bib for under two bucks. There's an absorbent towel-like fabric to catch liquid on the outside and a waterproof layer inside so the fluid won't seep through, making it perfect for both milk dribble and everyday drool. It comes in this rainbow assortment as well as all white or girl- and boy-specific colors. It's machine washable and specifically made for babies that are 3-12 months old.

If your baby is constantly drooling, a bandana bib is the stylish solution to leave on during playtime and outings. Not only does a bandana look cute, it can also be used to wipe away excess droll from baby's chin. This one has a cotton fabric on the front with poly fleece on the back that feels super soft. There's an adjustable-size snap closure so it'll fit properly and stay on well. It's also machine washable and comes in different colors or prints as a pack of four.

While most bibs are made for slightly older infants, this one is designed to be used from birth onwards. There's a padded collar that catches milk dribble, preventing those pesky rashes in baby's neck that form before he can hold his own head up. A velcro fastening makes for easy closure and it comes as a set of two in a few different colors with reversible designs.

Consider this your mealtime bib: It's made entirely of food-grade silicone — i.e. no fabric — so food and liquid doesn't get absorbed and it's easier to wipe clean. It's also dishwasher safe, so you can toss it in with baby's bowls and spoons. Just keep in mind that it's bulkier than other bibs, so it's not one you'll want your baby to wear all the time. It's sold as a pair and there's an adjustable snap closure in the back that's designed for six-month-old babies through 6-year-old kids.

Teething babies drool a lot and are always in search of something to chew on. These bibs help with both: The cotton muslin fabric absorbs the drool, while the built-in teether is there for babies to chomp on when their gums are feeling sore. It's sold as a set of three with a variety of reversible designs and has a velcro closure in the back. They're also machine washable.

If you're on the go and can't deal with cleaning up the mess, this hassle-free bib can be thrown out after you use it. It's made with three layers: a cloth-like top, an absorbent middle, and BPA-free plastic on the bottom to make it leak-proof. You may even want to leave a few in your diaper bag just so you're never stuck without a bib!

When your baby’s learning to feed herself, things get really, really messy. This bib covers more surface area so you don’t have to end every meal with a bath. It's the same brand and waterproof material as our best overall pick, but this one has the sleeves and a tie-closure in the back. As your baby gets older, it'll also double as a smock for art time.

This two-in-one design can be worn like a bib or used as a burp cloth. There's a snap closure in the back and it has great coverage to catch dribble during bottle feedings, even covering the shoulders and tops of arms. It's made of cotton muslin, which this brand is best known for with its popular swaddle blankets. The two-pack designs are reversible and there are tons of prints available.

These bibs are made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton, meaning the entire manufacturing process (not just the growing of the cotton) follows strict standards. Another cool factor is that the bibs stretch to go overhead like a onesie – i.e. there's no closure for baby to tug at in the back. It comes as a set of four and though it may not be your best bet for big messes, it's a good choice for drool and lighter spills.

This bib serves two purposes: It protects against drool and dribble and it makes your little guy look like the cutest thing ever. It comes as a four pack with different variations and it's designed to be absorbent and prevent leaking thanks to its thick fabric. Trust us, you'll want to have your camera ready when this bib goes on.

These adorable bibs are perfect for a mini-fashionista. They're also made of food-grade silicone so they're waterproof and ideal for meals. It comes in a three-pack and has a push tab closure that's adjustable to fit sizes six months to three years. So cute, you won't even care that your little lady is making a mess.
