Best Burp Cloths We've Tried
on May 27, 2013
Both my husband and I love these burp cloths and prefer them to all others that we received as gifts.
They are, by far, the softest cloths we own. Before we had our son, this wouldn't have meant anything to us, but it certainly does now! Our son is an overachiever in the spit-up department, therefore we are wiping his face constantly. We have a ton of burp cloths, and I was shocked to discover that a lot of them are downright scratchy. I wouldn't want to repeatedly rub MY face with those, yet alone his.
They are also larger than your typical burp cloth, which means more surface area to soak up baby goo. This also means these last longer between washings (speaking of which, I found they wash really well).
I hate the weird three-panel sizes and cutesy patches they sew onto patterned burp cloths. These are simple - a square beige cloth. There are no cute dinosaur/frog/duck patches to dodge scraping over his mouth and no stylish red and black lines that leave you wondering if you should wash with the lights or darks... Hopefully someone out there knows what I'm talking about here.
These are pricier than other burp cloths, but IMO they are absolutely worth it. We have two sets of four, but I'm getting another. When I was pregnant, I kept reading over and OVER again how people recommended using cloth diapers for burp cloths, and I have to tell you, we hate those the most.
If you are on the fence, get one set. I'm guessing you'll either wash them like crazy or buy lots more.
