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.
