1. Flannel or Terry Cloth-Backed Burp Cloths
First time moms underestimate the amount of spit up, drool, pee and vomit that a little person can produce, and that’s why you can never have enough burp cloths. They aren’t just for burping, but are great as emergency napkins, mopping up spilled milk and even used as wipes. While the regular white cloth diapers do the trick, you can add a more personalized touch by making your own using flannel or terry cloth, and they are even more absorbent and soft on baby’s cheek.
