At what age did your child stop wearing a bib?

*A bib at mealtime, not for drooling*

Re: At what age did your child stop wearing a bib?

I think it depends a lot on the kid! My eldest just stopped wearing a bib at 3 1/2. She is/was such a messy eater, I'm just now trusting her not to wipe food all over herself. She got in the really bad habit of wiping her hands on her bib, so we had to break her of that so she wouldn't do it to her shirt, too. Of course, she's still a kid and gets messes on her shirts sometimes, but I'm glad I'm not doing double duty on the bibs anymore!!! My youngest is 20 months and most definitely still wears a bib. My sister's foster kid is 3 and she does not have him wear a bib. He's a very careful eater.

I think around 1.5. He is a tall kid and it seemed likethey barely covered him. But he is a careful eater mostly, so we hardly used them anyway.

About a year old, my 11.5 month old has already stopped. I think it totally depends on the kid.

We don't really use bibs. I think I bought one for our newest kiddo, he's almost 9 months and has used it once in the car, just because he was wearing a nice shirt and was drooling like crazy. Buckled him into the carseat, then put the bib on over his clothes & carseat straps.

My 3yo DS still wears a bib - he insists! He doesn't like to get messy. I suspect that his little sister will be done with bibs much sooner.

before a year. I think she was probably closer to 9/10 months.
