    Default What age would/did you stop using a bib on your child/ren

    My nephew is nearly 4, and my sister STILL puts a bib on him at meal times....a catcher bib too. Is it just me, or is that a teeny bit old to wear a bib? Each to their own, but I can't recall using a bib for DS much past the age of 2. He just didn't really need it. But then my sister is a bit of a neat freak so maybe that's why...lol.

    Apart from kids with special needs, I'd agree that 4 seems too old!

    DS1 is 2 (27mths) and only wears a bib now when eating a messy type meal while wearing his 'good' clothes!!

    Yeah DD is the same, she's 27 months too and unless it's something like spaghetti or similar, I don't worry about it. My sister puts the bib on my nephew if he has a sandwich

    We didn't use bibs at all really, I hate them because the clothes underneath normally got dirty anyway with BLW, I just stripped him off.
    4 does seem pretty old!

    Yeah 4 is a bit old. DD is 29mo and I attempt to put a bib on her (she doesnt always comply!) for breakfast if she's having cereal because she manages to get it all over herself. All other meals I don't usually bother.

    But DD is still a bit clumsy with cutlery when eating certain foods, I'd expect a 4yo to be a fair bit more coordinated and capable of handling trickier foods.

    I never use them. So I have no idea when you should stop using them.

    Yeah 4 does seem a bit old but might work for her not to dirty clothes. I stopped using bibs around 12 months with all my 4 girls.
