My Top 10 Baby Items: #9

It seems like everyone I know is having a baby, and of course, I just had one. Even though Felix is my second child, we still had to rack our brains about what we needed this time around, what we already had, and what we needed to buy. It’s amazing how fast 3 years goes by and how much we had forgotten over that span of time. Therefore, I have put together a list of my Top 10 Baby Items (in no particular order) that we simply could not do without.

In case you missed one, you can read about #1, #2, #3, #4#5#6#7, and #8.

#9. Burp cloths

I realize this may sound kind of silly, but if your baby is anything like either of mine, he/she will spit up all the time during his/her first six months of life. We got all kinds of really cute little burp cloths that had team logos on them and quotes, etc. But the ones I loved (and used) the most were actually just cloth diapers. They were bigger and soaked up more spit-up than all those cutesy ones. Yeah, the cutesy ones were cute, but as soon as the baby spit up on them, they went straight to the laundry, and no one saw them anyway. If I were you, I would choose something on the thick side, as well as something that was wide and would cover a larger space to decrease the chances of the baby spitting up all over your shirt. Because trust me, it will happen even with a burp cloth, but hopefully not as bad!

What did you use for burp cloths?
