My first baby didn't really spit up. Baby number two spit up for a very short amount of time, until we figured out his dairy sensitivity. Three, as we affectionately referred to him in utero, spits up a LOT. After a couple of months of wearing soft, practical, and super absorbent cotton prefold diapers on my shoulder all day enough was enough. I mean, I was using those things out in public, everywhere. Not so pretty. I had a few of those thin baby terry burp cloths, but, really? Useless.
So, one day I bought some cotton chenille and flannel and these were the result.
They were a big step up. Soft and absorbent and not diapers. However, maybe I'm weird, but I am just so tired of pastels and baby prints. They're cute on babies, but I'm not a baby and I'm the one wearing the darn thing 24/7, right?
So, back I go and this time I picked up some fresh white chenille and some pretty quilter flannel. The quilter flannel is very soft and smooth and came in prints that appealed to me much more.
Now I'm happy. These are functional and pretty. And I need all the pretty I can get in this nose- and bottom-wiping, sleep-lacking, crazy wonderful season of life.
