Dribble Stop Tops Review – Keep Your Drooling Baby’s Chest Dry!
Sooner or later, all babies start teething and with teething comes dribbling — a lot of dribbling. All this drool soaks clothes and can make the skin on and under the chin (or chins!) wet and sore too. A wet top on the chest can quickly make a baby feel cold too so when there’s a lot of drool, there needs to be many outfit changes throughout the day.
My littlest one is 6 months old now and has been drooling for quite some time now but I think the first tooth will show up very soon as the drool has increased and sleep has been interrupted. She’s chewing everything too!
We have discovered a very helpful product that keeps the outfit changes (and laundry pile!) to a minimum and keeps my baby’s chest dry. Dribble Stop Tops are the original, multi-award winning baby vests that very cleverly keep your baby drier for longer thanks to a discreet protection layer that keeps the drool from soaking through to your baby’s delicate skin which keeps their chest dry and your baby warm and comfortable.
We use a lot of bibs too but I don’t like using bibs when my baby might fall asleep as it’s not safe to leave bibs on then. Dribble Stop Tops are completely safe as there’s nothing around the neck, just a hidden layer under the chest part of the top.
This layer is made of a specialised waterproof material with skin-like breathability and completely covers the chest area which is the main dribble zone! The neckline is extra high too, to ensure maximum coverage.
The material that touches your baby’s skin is lovely and soft cotton jersey which is very comfortable. The tops have press stud buttons on both shoulders which means they are easy to put on and take off your baby. The sleeves are generous and the leg openings soft and comfy.
For us parents, these tops mean less clothing changes (a lighter changing bag and a smaller laundry pile) and potentially better sleep if your baby tends to drool at night too and wake up from a wet or cold chest.
The tops wash really well and can be tumble dried too which I love. The vests come in packs of 2 — 2 White or 1 White and 1 Stripe (Pink or Blue) and in the following sizes 0-3ms, 3-6m, 6-9m, 9-12m, 12-18m, 18-24m. My daughter has size 9-12 months and it fits her well. She’s a big baby and usually wears mainly 9-12 months clothes.
The best way to avoid dribble rash is to keep your baby’s skin dry and these tops really help do just that. It’s very satisfying to feel that my baby’s chest is nice and dry even when she’s drooled lots on her top — the hidden layer works really well!
The price for a pack of two Dribble Stop Tops is just £13.99 which makes the tops about £7 each which is not bad at all considering the quality and the fact that you don’t need as many tops for your baby.
For us, the Dribble Stop Tops are especially useful when we are having a day out and I know I will not have the chance to change my baby’s clothes very often and it is even more important to keep her dry and warm when it’s cold outside.
I would definitely recommend the Dribble Stop Tops to parents of drooling, teething babies! I hope to see more colour options available in the future — some bold and darker colours perhaps (that don’t stain as easily) and long-sleeved tops would be great too.
