What makes Gigi Bibs unique?
Gigi Bibs are ergonomically designed to be super easy for parents and carers to attach and remove with one hand.
As well as making them super easy to use, our ground-breaking easy removal system means you can have your other hand back to do the thousand other things you need to do when you have little ones.
We’re parents too, so we get it. We know how hectic it can get (and how hard it can be to find a good bib!).
Our provisionally patented Gigi Clip allows you to attach and remove your little one's Gigi Bib by simply pinching the clip arms together with your thumb and forefinger and lifting the top of the clip away from the bottom.
Unlike noisy velcro strips that can wake baby, the Gigi Clip is whisper-quiet, so you won't disturb your little one's sleep taking it off after a feed.
Parents have also told us (and we agree!) that it's super frustrating and time-consuming when you’re constantly picking up baby’s dummies, teethers etc off the floor. And we know that hygiene is an increasingly important priority for parents in the wake of COVID-19.
That's why we designed our unique Gigi Accessory Tether.
Unlike traditional dummy chains which are way too easy for little hands to pull off and throw onto the floor, our Accessory Tether quickly and securely attaches inside the bib’s Gigi Clip. This means you can easily attach your little one’s dummy, teether, silicone feeder, comforter, rattle or other small, baby-safe accessory, so it's always close at hand, and off the floor!
Which Gigi Bib is right for my child?
There’s a Gigi bib to suit little ones at all ages and feeding stages - from newborns who are breast or bottle feeding, through to little ones transitioning to purees, and toddlers who have mastered solids.
Our stylish and multi-functional bib range includes:
Our universal Accessory Tether securely attaches to the Gigi Clip on all of our bibs - so your little cutie can continue to use it with different Gigi Bibs as they grow.
How do I use Gigi Bib?
Our mission is to make life easier for families, so all our products have bee thoughtfully and ergonomically designed to be easy for parents and carers to use, and comfy for little ones to wear.
Using our bibs couldn't be easier. Just pinch the two small arms on the Gigi Clip together with your thumb and forefinger to open and close the clip.
How do I use the Accessory Tether?
Our ultra convenient Gigi Accessory Tether quickly and securely attaches to the Gigi Bib's clip to keep bub's dummies, teethers and other baby-safe favourites close at hand and off the floor.
Unlike traditional dummy chains which clip onto baby's clothing and can be easily pulled off, the Accessory Tether stays securely locked into the Gigi Clip, saving you from having to constantly bend down and pick up baby's things off the floor (or search for them at the bottom of the nappy bag!).
To use the Accessory Tether, simply attach bub's accessory to the end of the Tether using the snap fastener, click the Tether Hoop over the base of the Gigi Clip, close the clip, and off you go.

How do I care for my Gigi products?
To keep the Gigi Baby Bib and Gigi Teething Bib in great condition, we recommend popping them into our Gigi Luxe Wash Bag before popping them into the washing machine on a cold cycle and drying them naturally in the shade.
The Gigi Smock Bib can be wiped clean with a wet cloth, or washed on a cold cycle and dried naturally too.
For our Gigi Silicone Bib, we recommend wiping it with a wet cloth, or giving it a rinse in the sink with mild dishwashing detergent. You can then leave it to dry on the rack, or wipe dry with a clean towel.
To clean the Gigi Accessory Tether, wipe it with a damp cloth, give it a wash in the sink with some gentle dishwashing liquid, or pop it into your Gigi Luxe Wash Bag and wash it in the washing machine on a cold cycle and dry naturally.
We don’t recommend using bleach or putting any of our products in the dryer. Like all quality garments, they will last longer if they’re cared for and left to dry naturally in the shade.
Detailed care instructions are also provided with all of our products.
What are Gigi Bibs made from?
All our bibs are made from high quality, baby safe materials.

Choosing the right bib for your baby, toddler or child
What should I look for when buying a bib for my baby?
It can be hard to know which kind of buy for your little one at each different age and feeding stage. Here are some tips on the important features to look for:
For babies 0-12 months:
1. Soft, breathable fabrics like cotton, bamboo or muslin are great as they’re breathable and gentle on baby’s delicate skin. Towel material like Terrycloth is also a great option for the back layer of the bib, as it’s super absorbent so it soaks up the milk spills and teething dribble, keeping baby's clothes dry and skin protected.
2. Bibs that are easy to put on and take off, especially for milk-feeding. You want to be able to easily remove your baby’s bib with one hand while nursing them in the other arm. This way, you won’t wake them when they fall asleep during a feed and can transfer them straight into bed.
3. A side closure is always best, as it’s easier to access to attach and remove and also more comfortable for baby - closures at the back of the neck can be fiddly to get to when baby is lying down to feed, and can also get toddler's hair caught in them when doing them up!
For teething bubs (6 months+)
1. Two layers of fabric is best, with a soft top layer and super absorbent bottom layer to provide extra protection for baby's skin and clothing.
2. An absorbent foam neck roll to catch the teething drool before it reaches baby’s neck, to avoid rashes and wet clothes.
3. A baby-safe teether cord that you can attach your little one’s dummy or teether to will save you time and hassle trying to keep track of baby’s teethers - preferably one that securely attaches to their bib so they can't pull it off and throw onto the floor.
For toddlers eating solids (6 months+):
1. Wipeable, easy-to-clean material such as a food-grade, BPA free silicone or waterproof polyester.
2. A large front and generous neck hole to accomodate growing toddlers, and provide broad-coverage for all those toddler-sized food and drink spills!
3. A food catcher pocket at the bottom of the bib is a must, to catch mess before it falls onto baby’s lap or onto the floor.
4. A side-closure clip that’s easy for adults to attach and remove, but tricky for little hands to pull off themselves during mealtimes. Side closures are less likely to catch your little one's hair too.
What should I avoid when buying a bib for my baby or toddler?
If you want bibs that are easy to use and will last the distance, there a few things to avoid:
1. Velcro - velcro tends to wear out after repeated washes, becoming less effective at staying attached over time. For babies who are light sleepers, the sound of undoing it can also wake them up if they fall asleep during a milk feed.
For toddlers, velcro can catch their hair, which isn't fun - it's also easy for them to pull off their bib and throw it on the floor (we know how they love to do that!).
2. Bibs that need to be pulled on and off over your little one's head - these bibs can be uncomfortable to put on and take off - especially if the neck-hole isn’t large enough, or if the bib shrinks after washing and becomes tighter to put on and take off.
Pulling a bib off over baby’s head will almost certainly wake them if they fall asleep during a milk feed. And when feeding toddlers solids, taking a bib off over their head usually usually results in food being smeared on their face and hair, which is not nice for them (or for you to have to clean it all off!).
3. Bibs with press-studs - press studs can be okay if they’re positioned on the side of the bib (rather than at the back of the neck). And they're fine if you have two spare hands. But let's face it, if you're like most parents and carers, the last thing you have is a spare hand!
If you’re nursing a baby who’s fallen asleep during a feed, press studs can be tricky to try to undo with one hand without pulling on baby’s neck (and waking them up in the process).
When should I start using dribble bibs for my baby?
It’s best to start using a bib from the time your little one is born. This is because when babies are learning to feed, milk tends to dribble out of the sides of their mouth onto their chin, neck and clothes. This can cause a rash on their skin, and also means you may need to change their clothes after each feed.
Does my newborn need a dribble bib?
It can definitely help to use a bib when feeding a newborn - both for breast and bottle feeding.Milk tends to dribble out of the sides of young baby’s mouths onto their chin, neck and clothes.This can cause a rash on their skin, and also means you’ll need to change their clothes after each feed. A good quality, absorbent bib can help avoid this.
Do toddlers need to wear bibs for feeding?
As your baby grows and makes the transition to eating solids, things tend to get pretty messy. So it’s a good idea to use a bib, especially when your little one is enjoying a deliciously messy meal (think spaghetti, baked beans, soups etc).A larger bib made of water-proof, wipeable material that's easy to clean (silicone, or water-proof polyester or laminated cotton) is a great choice. Look for a generously sized food catcher roll at the bottom of the bib too!
What kind of bib is best for newborns?
Because newborns tend to dribble when they’re learning how to feed, it’s best to look for a small bib that’s made of soft, absorbent material, like cotton or soft terrycloth.
A double-layered combination of the two is a good option, as you have the softness of the cotton for comfort, and the absorbency of the terrycloth to soak up the milk before it reaches baby’s clothing or skin.
What kind of bib is best for teething?
When bubs start teething (from around 4-6 months old) they tend to dribble... A LOT. So it’s good to have a generous supply of soft, absorbent teething bibs on hand for this stage.
Bibs that have a soft cotton layer on the top and a super absorbent terrycloth layer at the back are great for protecting baby's skin and clothing from drool.
A foam neck roll is also really handy for catching dribble before it can run down baby's neck, causing a rash or wetting their clothes.
What kind of feeding bib is best for toddlers?
Because toddler feeding can be messy, a large, broad-coverage, wipeable silicone bib with a food catcher roll at the bottom, or a full-coverage, water-proof smock is a great option.
These options can help to prevent your cutie from getting too messy, and can also save their high-chair and the floor from copping it too.
How many baby bibs do you recommend I buy for my baby?
Let’s face it, little people make a lot of mess,
For newborns, it’s a good idea to invest in 6-8 great quality, absorbent bibs that you know will last the distance until baby starts the transition to solids.
This way, you'll always have 3-4 bibs on hand ready to go for milk feeds at home, plus one ready in the nappy bag for going out, while 2-3 are in the wash or drying on the rack.
Once bub starts teething (around 4-6 months), you’ll want to invest in some super absorbent teething bibs to catch all the teething dribble.
Depending on how ‘dribbly’ your bub is when they’re teething, it's a good idea have around 6-8 good quality, absorbent bibs on hand so that you have a decent supply in the nappy bag for outings and a few at home to change throughout the day.
The transition to solids is downright messy. So for toddlers, you’ll need some large, sturdy, wipeable bibs - either silicone or polyester smock bibs to catch all the mess - preferably with a food catcher pocket at the bottom.
4-6 of these should be enough to see you through this stage, as you can just wipe them down or give them a wash in the sink and dry in the dish rack after use.
Is it safe to put baby to bed wearing a bib?
According to Red Nose Australia, you should always remove anything that may cover baby’s head (including bibs) before putting them into bed, as it can pose a safety risk.
We know it can be tricky when baby falls asleep during a feed though - of course you don't want to wake them by taking their bib off! That's because most bibs are hard to take off easily and quietly with one hand without waking them up.
That’s why our bibs are specifically designed to be super easy, quick and quiet to take off with one hand - so you can remove your baby's bib without waking them and give them a safe, smooth transfer straight into bed.
