I think I stopped when DD was about 14mths - unless it's something very messy. She's pretty good with most food now, and doesn't usually spill it. I would always put it on her if she had something like spaghetti though!

My DD had permanent drool ones on her til she was some age between 18 months to 2 years due to an unbelievable amount of drool. For food til about 3 then she had a revolt. My son hated them and it was easier to just put another top on him than battle over a bib. He revolted against bibs at about 12 months.

You can stop whenever you like! I bibbed my first 2 children and then I just gave up altogether. I haven't bought a bib in years. It is quite possible that my children are the messiest, drooliest, most disgusting eaters in the world but a bib would not save the clothes underneath! I did try wrapping towels around them from neck down but they still managed to get those slimy, sticky little hands up underneath and on their clothes. I figured it's better to be only nappy sanning 2 items of clothing instead of three! I find food behind ears, up noses, down nappies and between toes! We often have topless mealtimes now - just the kids, not me. (lols) Especially for spaghetti, noodles or any food that is likely to stain clothes. Then I plonk them in the bath or shower. Mind you, I still have 3 little guys. It would be easier to clean up only one. You have to do what works for you.

Ds is 11 months and stopped about a month ago. He just cries and tries to pull them off.
Plus he is such a messy eater that there's kind of no point. Everything gets covered in food regardless.

And in regards to not wanting to get food stains on clothes..l I found an easy solution. Strip them down to their nappy while they are eating

My 4 and 2 year olds both still wear bibs. We use these thin plastic ones with a little pocket on the bottom that catches crumbs, peas, etc etc. I use them because I don't want their clothes getting dirty and stained and also for some meals they help contain mess/crumbs. Some meals my 4 yr old doesn't wear one or if we are out but most of the time she still does. They are easy to wipe clean or rinse out and quick dry not as easy a a their clothes!!
