- Baby List
GOT cotton is super absorbent. 100% certified organic cotton materiel. Trifold design protects shoulder from messes. 16" x 11.8". Machine washable. Stays soft after excessive use and washings.
- BestReviews
What makes them so great? First, they’re extra-absorbent. Second, they cover a large surface area for added protection. Third, they’re 100 percent organic and safe for even the most sensitive baby skin.
- The Bump
Each cloth in this five-pack is soft for baby and made of certified organic cotton. They are large enough to be folded down as a layered burp cloth or can spread out for other uses, like diaper changes.
- Good Housekeeping
The 2-ply construction is thick and more absorbent. It is highly suitable for spills, drool, spitting, and everything that follows.
- The Baby Swag
These durable cloths have ribbed fabric to help the mess stay on the cloth.
- Fathering Magazine
Easy to pack in a diaper bag. Made from 100% durable organic cotton.
- Net Parents
Their durability is why so many parents recommend them. They can last for years, so you only need to purchase a few for all of your kids.
- Baby Advisor
These cloths (with alphabet, stripes and — of course — bee designs) are made from 100 percent organic cotton (so they’re more earth-friendly than other picks), they’re super soft and they won’t fall apart in the washing machine. Plus, they’re on the bigger side, which means more coverage (and cleaner clothes) for you.
- What To Expect
Focusing on the design, the fabric is ribbed with three panels for heavy use. Its tri-fold structure will perfectly cover your shoulders.
- Smart Homekeeping
Burt’s Bees Baby organic burp cloths is the epitome of what a great organic burp cloth should be.
- WhyWeLikeThis
The product is fairly sizable. It's dimensions are 11.8"x16". This is generally enough to capture all of the spit up.
- The Babble Out
What experts didn't like
These only come in one style/color option that is a unisex grey.
- BestReviews
Some customers have mentioned that the spit remains stuck to the burp cloth even after washing.
- The Baby Swag
These burp cloths cost more than some other national brand burp cloths.
- Fathering Magazine
Not ideal to use to clean up larger spit up messes. Small compared to other brands of burp cloths.

Burt’s Bees washcloths aren’t the cheapest.
- Baby Advisor
Some people have found that the product isn't as absorbent as other products.

An Overview On Burp Cloths

There’s no getting around the fact that babies spit up and drool frequently during their first few months of life. You’ll want to have plenty of burp cloths on hand to protect your clothing and to wipe baby’s lips and chin as needed. Of course, burp cloths also make an excellent baby shower gift if you know someone who is expecting.

Before you buy a pack of burp cloths, take a look at the material used to construct them. You want to make sure the fabric is soft, as newborns have sensitive skin. You’ll find burp cloths come in 100% cotton, flannel, muslin and terry cloth.

Look around the outside of the burp cloths to determine whether they have finished edges. Finished edges keep the construction material from fraying, which also works to extend the life of the cloths.

Another feature to consider is pre-folded panels that make folding and storing the burp cloths a breeze.

Select a set of burp cloths that is listed as extra absorbent. It’s also helpful if the material is known to dry quickly. This is especially important if the burp cloths are designed to double as cloth diapers.

DYWM Fun Fact

According to the Guinness World Records Book, the longest burp lasted 1 minute 13 seconds 57 milliseconds. This was achieved by adult Michele Forgione in Italy in 2009. Although your baby won’t burp for an entire minute like Michele, there are still a few things you’ll need to know about burping your infant.

First, bottle-fed babies will swallow more air than breastfed infants, and thus, require more burping. Second, babies that are breastfed can be sensitive to something their mothers are consuming, which can lead to excess gas. Finally, babies generally stop needing to be burped between four and nine months. At this age, little ones are starting to sit up more and are learning how to self-burp.

The Burp Cloth Buying Guide

  • Some reviewers report that there are times when dried spit up remains on the burp cloth after washing. You may wish to pre-treat the area first and use a soft-bristle brush to break up the spit up before you toss it in the washing machine.
  • It’s a good idea to have at least 10 to 12 burp cloths on hand when your baby is born. Newborns tend to spit up often and you might not want to do laundry every day.
  • If you can’t air-dry your burp cloths, place them in the dry on the low heat setting. This will help prevent the burp cloths from shrinking.
  • There are several factors that affect the price of burp cloths. You’ll find the more basic Synrroe Muslin Burp Cloths, 4-Pack and Gerber Baby Girls’ Flannel Burp Cloth, 4-Pack are among the most affordable. Since the Gerber 3-Ply Prefold Cloth Diapers/Burp Cloths, 10-Pack also work as cloth diapers, they are more moderately priced. The most expensive is the Burt’s Bees Organic Baby Burp Cloths, 5-Pack because it sports a GOTS certification.
