You'll have spent time and effort finding the perfect Christmas Day outfit for your baby or toddler so don't forget to complete the fabulously festive look - and keep their gorgeous new clothes clean - with a Christmas bib too.

This is likely to be your baby or toddler's very first Christmas dinner, so you want to make sure it's a special occasion. You definitely don't want to sit there panicking that they're getting cranberry sauce everywhere or ruining the lovely little dress or shirt you've put them in for those all-important first Christmas photos.

A good bib can make the eating process a lot more enjoyable for everyone and they are especially good for parents who have chosen to do baby-led weaning with their bundle of joy as it gives baby the freedom to explore the new foods that come as part of a classic Christmas dinner.

While bibs are really useful and practical items at any dinner, they do present a suffocation risk if the child is left unattended, so make sure you're always sat with your baby when they're wearing one. We've rounded up the best 'my first Christmas' bib designs and styles on the market at the moment, including Christmas bandana bibs, Christmas dribble bibs and Christmas dinner bibs with handy compartments to catch any Yorkshire pudding that might miss your baby's mouth. We've also chosen bibs in a range of fabrics, including cotton and flannel, which are best for young babies who are dribbling or having milk, as well as silicone and synthetic baby Christmas bibs, which are really good for wiping food off quickly and cleanly.

Once you've found the perfect bib for the most exciting meal of the year, you might want to take a look at some of our other Best Buy articles for the festive season, including the best baby dresses for Christmas Day and the best Disney Christmas decorations to bring Disney magic into your home.

Kidadl's Top Pick

While all of the Christmas bibs in this feature are highly recommended for the special day, we've chosen our favourite of the bunch. This cute Christmas baby bib takes the top spot on our list because of its lovely subtle design that'll go really well with any festive outfit your little one is wearing, the great price point and the fact that it can be personalised with your baby or toddler's name.

This bib is 100% cotton and mostly designed for small babies, with cotton being the perfect material to soak up any spilt milk or sick.
