I like bibs more than burp cloths. But it depends baby-to-baby! Some kids are SUPER spitty, and some NEVER spit up!

I’d plan on 2-3 per day, per person in your house.

@nickels:  maybe I got lucky but my baby did not spit up, like ever. I use maybe one burp cloth a week….:I do know someone though his baby spits up half his milk and he probably goes through 20 a day…. It’s really gross

I would suggest not getting really thick prefold cloth diapers because they are too think (like the Green Mountain Diaper ones) but the Gerber prefolds are good for burp cloth purposes. I think it depends on the baby, and if you bottle feed or nurse. I used the little baby wash clothes the most because I just had to wipe dribbles, but if you have a baby who pukes a lot you would need something bigger. Also depends on how often you do laundry!

My kids are no longer babies, but they both spit up quite a bit, including after almost every feeding and in between.   I had at least 2 dozen burp cloths and went through them all in two or three days.  I did laundry every day, though.

I made 1 “burp cloth” that’s in my diaper bag as yet to be used.  I use bibs so planning on buyin gmore bibs.  I use 1-2 bibs a day…baby does spit up but only on occasion wneh he over-feeds.
