4? Really? I have a 4yo and would never dream of putting a bib on him. How demeaning. And not at all good for encouraging independence I would think.
I stopped using them on my kids before they were 1. When I spent more time putting their bib in than feeding them, I gave up!

DD stopped wearing bibs before she was 12 months old. She would pull them off as soon as I put them on her. She's two now and was playing dress ups the other day and put a bib on herself. Even at 2 she looked far too old for a bib! Each to their own though.

Of she is so concerned about spills perhaps she could tuck a paper napkin in the neck of his shirt. He needs to know he is a big boy now.

It is a bit odd at age 4 but I usually find there is a "method in the madness", or maybe it's just a habit.

My DS turns 3 next month and I only recently stopped using a bib on him It wasn't for every meal though, just occasionally at dinner time when he was having something particularly messy (like spaghetti bol).

Ds hasnt worn a bib since he was 12 months old he used to rip it off instantly. I just strip him down now so I dont have to worry about getting stains out of clothes.

My 9mth old already rips his bib off 90% of the time so i can't imagine him wearing one at 4

I'd love to still be using them for my messy 1 year old but he pulls them off as quickly as I can get them on! I have given up trying now!
DS1 was about 12 months also.
