    My 9 month old and 3.5 year old use scoop bibs. My 3.5 year old not all the time, but when she has porridge or spaghetti etc. she wears it. Too messy otherwise.

    It doesn't help that I'm in a rental with carpet in the dining room, so annoying!

    Neither of mine wear them regularly now. DD1 stopped at about 3, and DD2 is 2.5yrs and hasn't worn them for a few months. Sometimes they will ask for one, or if they are already dressed to go out I'll put one on them (like the other day I had them dressed ready to go to a party and made them porridge for afternoon tea as an energy boost as it was a 4.30pm party so put a bib on both to protect their clothes.)

    My DS is 4yo and I still make him wear one when we have spagetti As a general thing though, he probably stopped wearing it regularly from about 2yo.

    My youngest who is two next month wears one at all times. Not so much for food but for drool, the food is just a bonus. He is a really bad dribbler and he'll go through a few a day!

    I just wanted to add that I've got my little guy in bandanna bibs - they do the same job but are super cute

    I have a Ds15 months who doesn't wear a bib. It's because he only has clothes on when we leave the house so nothing to protect.

    DD stopped wearing them at 12 months. She has always been a neat eater and rarely gets food on her clothes. If it's something like spag bol though, I will usually tuck a clean terry square nappy down the front of her top. DS is only 5.5 months, but he can wear bibs till he's 5 if that's what he wants!

    Interesting thread. I've just moved into a rental that has carpet. I haven't had carpet for years. Last night we had a pasta disaster, it went everywhere. He's 3 and I don't usually bib him, but I'm getting a scoop bib today just for pasta with tomato based sauces. He ate it with his hands and it was all over him. I was pretty unimpressed lol.

    Can you feed him outside? I find feeding the animals (I mean children) outside is so much easier for cleaning up.

    Whenever you want them to stop.

    Dd stopped around 10mnths I think when she moved onto finger foods.

    I spend alot of money on nappy San & preen spray though.
