Babies R Us Interlock Burp Cloths

I put my husband in charge of all of the big-ticket items on our registry (he basically just went from whatever was recommended in Baby Bargains), and then I rounded the list out with the basics. Things like onesies, blankets, washcloths, bath stuff, and burp cloths.

I don't even remember choosing the Babies R Us Interlock Burp Cloths out of the ridiculous number of burp-cloth options available, but I'm incredibly glad I did. These things ended up being THE BEST, most absorbent cloths on the planet.

The other three are in the wash, of course
Who knew these would be some of my favorite baby things?
So much so that I ordered six more of them (they come in three-packs) a month ago because I couldn't be without them when the original three were all in the wash together. I've got two blue sets and one yellow set. But they of course also come in pink.

In the early days, Baba G would spit up a ton. Somehow these cloths would take all of that wetness in and still feel dry to the touch when picked up again later on. I think there's some sort of magic in them.

The other great thing about them is their size. Perfect for tucking under dribbly chins without getting in the way.

Chug, chug, chug!
The bottom line: Affordable (they're $10.99 for three, but are often a part of BRU's many, many sales) and SO useful. If you're a new parent or a parent-to-be, put these on your registry without hesitation (assuming you're registering at Babies R Us, that is). If you're buying someone a baby gift and these cloths are NOT on their registry list, buy them anyway. Your friends will thank you later when they realize how nice it is to pick up a cloth that is NOT all slimy and wet, trust me.

  1. Help!!! My daughter adopted the white polka dot burp cloth in the neutral pack as her lovey 2 years ago because it is sooooo soft and cute. Now it is falling apart! I didn't know the brand until recently and have been on the search ever since. The polka dot pattern has been discontinued! Do you have any (new or used) that I can buy from you? We are in crisis!

  2. Hi there FRD -- Are you talking about the one in the top middle of the pic in this post? You're never going to believe this, but we seem to have all of them still around this place EXCEPT that one. Neither my nanny or I have seen it in a while... but that doesn't mean it's not somewhere in this mess. However, I couldn't find it upon a quick search of all of the places I feel it could be stashed. If you want to contact me at ErikaSOlson AT gmail DOT com (don't forget the s in the middle of my name!) then if I find it I can write you back and would gladly send it to you...

  3. To FRD who left the comment a month ago -- we FOUND the polka dot burp cloth -- I told my mom about your post and she found it at her house. So... I would be more than happy to get it to you, but I don't know how to contact you and really hope you check this again.

    You can contact me at ErikaSOlson AT gmail DOT com if you're still looking for one.

    Thanks!
