Combination Burp Cloth and Bib
The aden + anais Classic Burpy Bib is both a burp cloth and a bib. Using this as a bib was the best for when I had infant lay flat on his back to go out in the bassinet right after feeding. It is really wide and would catch the spit up that would otherwise roll down his neck when I didn't keep him upright for at least 15 minutes after a feeding. They are rather large, so aren't ideal for baby to wear for hours on end.
I have a star obsession for all things baby, so of course I have the Twinkle pattern (one day I will do an entire post on my star obsession, including the big nursery wall of silver stars that I painted during my 36th week).
This bib is also great car sick kids to wear in the car to protect the car seat straps, which are a pain to clean.
Regular Cotton Bibs
Aden+Anais Snap Bibs are really useful too (if you are like me, you may have a hard time choosing between the stardust and twinkle patterns). They are super soft and wash well. They also come in muted patterns that work with any outfit. They protect outfits from spit up and later from drool.
Drool / Teething Bibs
If you have a drooler on your hands, you might want to protect baby's shirt with a drool bib.
There are tons of adorable patterns out there. Click here to see a few super cute patterns.
Under the Nile Organic Burp Cloths are amazing. They are incredibly soft and wash well. I have used multiples daily since the day we came home from the hospital.
I use them as burp cloths and also to put under the baby during tummy time in cases he spits up. I somehow ended up with twelve of these and thought it was too much but I go through a lot of them and always keep a few in the diaper bag. Giggle Better Basics line is made by Under the Nile. So Giggle's and Under the Nile's burp cloths are the same thing.
Mini Cloths for Little Messes
I also like to keep Thirsties wipes at the change table for spit up and little messes.
