My kids have all been droolers. It starts with buckets of spit-up (yet my babies still have thigh rolls, thank goodness!). I always wondered how “burp cloths” worked for anyone  because I needed burp blankets to contain everything! 
Next, my kids would absolutely drool allll daaaay. Well-meaning strangers would insist my baby was teething
(for 9 months?!). Every-day-wear bibs were our answer (switched out a few times throughout the day of course!).

Crochet bibs offer even more protection because they are thicker than one layer of fabric and the cotton is super absorbent! 

Whip out a couple of these crochet plaid bandana bibs and your drooler will meet her match. It would make a darling baby shower gift too!
