Trust us—you're going to want a burp cloth on hand 24/7 to help with baby's messes. Best Burp Cloths

A tell-tale sign of a new parent: running errands with a burp cloth draped over your shoulder…when you’re out solo. This baby essential is so important, it sticks with you even when you’re not actually with the baby.

During the newborn months and beyond, you’ll want burp cloths on hand 24/7. Not only do burp cloths take the brunt of spit-up, but you can use them to wipe milk dribbles, sneezes or whatever comes your way. Because there’s usually something coming your way. Stock up on burp cloths that are soft, absorbent and hold up well after zillions of washes.

The Staple Burp Cloth

These no-frills trifold burp cloths are thick, easy-to-fold and store nicely when not in use. Made with soft organic cotton, they soak up messes in a snap and get softer with each wash. Better yet, this affordable pick comes in a pack of five. Aside from being great burp cloths, use them as a little pillow under your baby’s head during diaper changes or even as an extra cover to lay on top of your changing pad. This way, you can toss the cloth in the wash after a blowout while protecting the cute cover.

Functional & Fashionable Burp Cloth

Consider Copper Pearl’s large, ultra-absorbent burp cloths your wardrobe savior. With patterns ranging from dinosaurs to stripes, florals to unicorns, these luxurious cotton cloths offer the perfect cozy coverage. The middle fleece layer adds even more absorbency, so you can put on your favorite shirt knowing you’ll actually leave the house wearing it. Copper Pearl makes matching bandana bibs, so you can take your kiddo’s style up a notch by pairing a bib with its counterpart cloth.

Double Duty Burp Cloth

Aden + Anais combine their signature patterns and soft muslin fabric to make the ultimate burp cloth: the “burpy bib.” The unique shape and no-slip design drapes perfectly over your shoulder, covering both the front and back. (Trust us, you’ll want all the coverage you can get.) These are a bit pricier than a typical burp cloth, but they do double duty as a breathable bib. Just snap the sides together in the back and voila: your baby’s shoulders, chest and arms are covered. Less laundry? Yes, please!

Dimensions 9” x 23.5”

Budget-Friendly Bulk Burp Cloths

If you’re looking for quantity and quality, this bulk pack from Gerber has you covered (literally). At less than $2.50 per burp cloth in a pack of eight, they’re a great budget-friendly option for both at home and on the go. And since they’re made of flannel, they’re super soft, thick and absorbent. Don’t expect anything fancy with these burp cloths, though; the designs and rectangle shape are fairly basic, but they’ll last.

Simply Soft Burp Cloths

Soft, thick and generously sized, these organic cotton muslin burp cloths from Green Sprouts feature four absorbent layers to keep messes in check. And since they’re a full inch larger on each side than most bigger-sized burp cloths, they’re a great option if your baby’s spitups also tend to be on the larger side. Keep in mind: While these burp cloths are similar in shape to the aden + anais burpy bibs, they don’t transform into a bib.
