    In an ideal world I would still have my 2.5 year old wearing bibs! The reason I use bibs is because I don't want their clothes stained with all the food stuff, especially fruit stains etc. I have never had dribblers or vomiters, so that's never been an issue, so really in answer to your question, I stop using bibs when they tend to have a bit more dexterity with their eating and prone to making less mess on their clothes, so pretty much under 2.

    Whenever you want to stop

    My DS2 is 23 months and I only use them with him occasionally when it's something really messy.

    DD is 10 months and she uses a bib nearly all of the time.

    mumsrulz, There's no definitive answer, it's really up to you. I find I stop at 2 years (for all mealtimes) and if they're older than 2, it's usually if they're having something particularly messy and very difficult to get stains out of. I haven't used them older than 3 though, and especially not in public, I did once on my 3 year old at the time (for ice cream) and got the strangest stares from people!

    My DS is 28 months and he wears one at breakfast time as I don't want his NEW t-shirt to have weetbix stains on it 10min after I just put it on!
    No at lunchtime as he mainly eats finger food then.
    Yes at dinner time to avoid stains from pasta sauce etc.

    Whenever you like! Or they refuse to wear it . DS is just over 2 and has refused to wear one for a least 6 months, maybe longer. He is pretty good with his spoon and fork so I didn't force him to keep wearing it when he didn't want to.

    I have 26 month old and a 12 month old. - they both wear bibs for meal times.... I would rather a bin get messy than their clothes. The 26
    Month old doesn't always need it but is just in the habit of putting it on.
