Always opt for soft cotton materials. These will most likely not cause irritation to the baby's skin especially around the neck area and they are easy to wash and dry. Items made of this type of material, also tend to last a long time.
If you want a softer material, you could always choose those items made of soft cotton fleece. This material is very plush but may also cause allergies in some people. Do an allergy test on the baby's skin before making large purchases.
Another important aspect is the fit. Some of these items are square shaped with neck ties. While these are usually large in the front, they will most likely only cover the chest area. Instead, you can try bandana bibs. These are shaped like a folded bandana and have Velcro instead of strings secure them around the neck.
Many parents opt for the bandana styles because they give coverage around the entire neck and most of the design are quite stylish. If however you are not into flashy designs, there are also solid colors or conventional patterns that you can choose from. These seem to be a favorite of parents who can access them easily and get a good amount of protection for their baby's clothing.
Whatever style in these items you choose, ensure to get your money's worth. This will depend on the type of material and how you treat this essential item of clothing. Remember soft cotton and fleece are durable so items made with these materials should last a longer time than those made with many others. You should also practice hand washing rather than machine washing, this could help to prolong the life of such an item.
