Get a pack of Gerber prefold diapers on amazon! Anything labeled as a burp cloth will be more expensive and less absorbent. You can use them as burp cloths / washcloths / etc. super cheap and absorbent!
Gerber Birdseye 3-Ply Prefold... [link]
this is going to sound ridiculous, but I use pre-fold cloth diapers. They're super absorbent and easy to wash. You can get them from amazon (here) or even Target/Walmart. Bonus: they're also great for cleaning other things and dusting.
Yes - my mother used to say: “give me your hands.”
Now I’m an Esthetician and I get to tell other people to do that.
But yes, please, if you feel like you need to touch your face, try cleansing it instead! Get yourself some of the soft 3 ply baby diapers from Gerber on Amazon, wash your face and remove, gently with a lukewarm one of these as a washcloth. Your skin will feel much better!!
Cloth Diaper = Luxurious Feeling Washcloth
For anyone who will be adding burp cloths to your registry, these "cloth diapers" make THE BEST burp cloths. Seriously. We own so many of them and still use them for clean up and messes with our 2.5 year old. We were gifted so many other fancy designed ones and they just don't compare/absorb like these do. I love gifting these because so many people just don't know until they try them!
Basically, I found the best thing was to have these (we bought 3 packs) around everywhere all the time always. Tuck em into their shirts like a bib. Always have one over your shoulder. Tuck it into the sling. We use Force of Nature cleaning spray (which is an investment, but if you can afford it, I HIGHLY recommend), which helps with the smell - you could probably use a spray bottle of water mixed with a drop of laundry detergent to do quick spot treatments.
And I second this product. My son could win awards with his spit up for his first year of life. These were a million times better than any fancy burp rag I bought (and I bought them all - milkbarn, milksnob, little unicorn, etc). I still use them for my daughter. Best damn burp cloths.
My daughter is 7.5 months.
These were hands down the best burp cloths and we had many different types.
She lived in gowns for the first month. They're the easiest outfits to change and the quickest during middle of the night diaper changes.
Halo swaddles were our favorite. They were easy to use, and the easiest ones to transition out of when the time came.
A sound machine. We have the Hatch. Babies are SO freaking loud at night. Her noises constantly woke me up. Then when she got older she started to sleep longer with it being on loud. The light on the Hatch is great for middle of the night diaper changes.
If you're formula feeding get a formula pitcher. It saves a lot of time and reduces the foam in bottles so it reduces gas.
I use these for burp cloths and general grab something quick cleanups. Gerber Prefolds
Well that sucks :(
The Babies'R'Us in my town isn't particularly big but they have the Gerber prefolds in a 12 pack.
Still there's always the internet... Amazon have them for $16.
You don't need 3 swings/rockers - pick one.
You don't need 2 strollers - pick one.
You don't need 2 activity mats - pick one.
You don't need 2 cribs - pick one.
You don't need 2 mattresses - pick one.
You have 3 different bottle types; I'd recommend choosing just one and not bother getting another brand unless your baby has issues with that one. You don't want to unbox, sanitize, etc. and risk not being able to return the other set.
I don't see the point of those "wet and dry wipes" organizer pouches; a ziploc bag works just fine if you want to carry small amounts of wipes with you.
As far as baby carriers go, I recommend Lillebaby over Infantino, hands down. They sell some of their styles in Target, but you can get more on the Lillebaby website or Amazon. You may want opinions from /r/babywearing, or go to a local Babywearing International meeting to try out carriers before choosing one.
Things I don't see:
I always recommend Lucie's List when it comes to having a basic, not-overdone registry. They talk about essentials (not fluff) and sort things by price.
You may also want to post this in /r/beyondthebump rather than here, since everyone in Beyond The Bump have already had a kid.
Looks like Amazon has them, but you can also look for cotton flour sack towels at any local stores (here's an Amazon link ) or really any sort of prefolds or flats. Some people also use receiving blankets too if you have any laying around.
Also, If you aren't comfortable using safety pins see about buying something called a snappi. It's a three prong thing that makes it super easy to hold prefolds and flats on babies without having to worry about pricking them with a pin.
Another also, there are tons of videos on YouTube for putting prefolds and flats on your baby. It can seem super intimidating at first but it's actually a lot easier than it seems.
Lo siento mi español es mal pero esta enlace es para prefold pañales. Es bueno para bebes.
We used these as burping cloths/ spit up rags/ now my household cleaning rags. Awesome multi-purpose rags.
These and these are the ones someone had recommended in a previous thread
So, would this be something like this? [link]
