The Best Burp Cloths and Bibs for Babies

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.  

See my post on preventing car sickness and dealing with the clean up when it is inevitable.

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

I also have this Cheeky Chompers bib  (yes, of course, I have the Twinkle Twinkle pattern).  It is a combination teether toy and drool bib.  My son wasn't crazy about the teether, but if it works for you, you can kill two birds with one stone.



Burp Cloths

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.

Bibs for Feeding Solid Foods

Once your baby is ready for solids, I recommend a different type of bib.  See my post on introducing solids for more details, including some great silicone ones!
