As new first-time parents, we were looking for the best burp cloths. These are the ones you should buy. Very soft, super-absorbant, hold up to multiple washings, and are a great price. We have bought multiple packs of these and they are available all over our house and in our diaper bag. You won’t be disappointed.
Comparison with regular Gerber premiums
I did a side by side comparison of these Gerber organic diapers and the Gerber premium prefold cloth diapers which are also quite popular by purchasing a 6-pack of each, for the same price.I washed them all in a regular load of whites with regular detergent and no fabric softener, and dried them on medium. These came out the winner in my book, mostly because even without the assistance of fabric softener, there came out far softer than the premium prefolds. After being dried, they took on a bubbly, muslin-like appearance, where the premiums were crisp, solid and flat. Its probably a matter of preference what you like and what you intend to use these multi-purpose cloths for.On the downside, these shrunk slightly more than the other Gerbers, and are now an inch smaller on each side. They were still plenty large enough to get the job done and are no means as small as a washcloth, etc.To me, if you love instant softness and a looser weave, get these. If you like sturdy, high thread count and a thick uniform cloth, get the Gerber premium prefolds.
These are a great deal, but the organic fabric is an odd almost silky thread instead of the normal cotton I expected. It does not seem like they would be very absorbent like the regular cotton reusable diapers are for burp cloths. I haven’t tried them yet but did change my registry to the traditional ones after I got these.
Very thin, not comparable to regular prefold diapers
I ordered these because I need heavy duty burp clothes for my daughter with reflux. I thought they would be similar in quality to regular diaper service premium diapers I had bought for my older daughter in 2006. I was wrong. They are also very small. I don’t recommend this product. I will getting the regular diaper service quality prefolds from Gerber instead.
Very nice product.
This is a great quality product, very white and very soft. The feel of the fabric is much nicer than its non-organic counterpart. Worth spending a couple extra bucks. The cloths are very useful. We mainly use them as bibs, at home and for travel. Our baby likes to hold onto one for comfort before she falls asleep, too.
Nice Rag, Awful Diaper, and more Expensive than High-Quality Organic Cloth
Some of these were given to me at our baby shower, and I’m glad I’d already researched and purchased the cloth diapers we intended to use as diapers.I bought our actual diapers online, and they are thick, soft, cut straight, hemmed well, and of a good size. That brand of organic was also much cheaper than these. In comparison these diapers are thin, rough, badly hemmed, small, and cut crooked (which makes folding harder and contributes to them getting misshapen in the wash).Crazy, also, that they cost more than competing organics of better quality.
Fell apart easily…
These developed holes and shredded after only a couple of months. They are too thin. My OsoCozy Unbleached flats are a bit thicker and have held up wonderfully.
Essential for a newborn
I actually have the natural ones, and not the white. These absorb spit-up amazingly well, which means more use out of each one as a burp cloth. And the spit-up hardly shows. So soft and fluffy — makes for a nice fabric for my baby’s cheek when he’s getting burped.
Gerber Prefold Organic Diaper (Burpcloth)
I can not say for a diaper but for a burpcloth it works great. I love that they are organic. They soak up any spit-up, vomit, and any form of milk very well.
good, but like the non-organic better
While these are super soft and lovely for burp cloths, I think the gerber ‘original’ 12 pack of birdseye are much more absorbant. For $6 more, you get twice the number of diapers in the original. Still happy I have these, and if you’re going all organic, these are great.
i bought these to use as burp cloths.. i love the fabric, i added a little border and they look fabulous… truly in love with them
We got them initially for diapers. Because of other reasons we went to the disposable diapers but we used these for spills, burp cloths and other things that needed a quick towel for cleanup and i must say they absorb very well.
Great for making burp clothes
I ordered these so that I could have a few cloth diapers in case of rash, but mostly so that I could make a few personalized burp clothes by sewing additional fabrics to them. They turned out great, hold up well in the wash. I’m very pleased with this purchase and would maybe even order again. I recommend this product to anyone looking for organic high quality items (diapers/burp clothes).
Great burp cloths
I took the advice of other reviewers to use these as burp cloths. I love that they are organic and soft, with some texture and no gaudy design. We bought one pack and then came back for more. Two packs has been just enough for doing laundry once or twice a week. They have been great and not mad at the price!
Fine for burp cloths, terrible for diapers
If you are looking for cloth diapers, educate yourself somewhere like on the Green Mountain Diapers website. The prefolds they sell do work well, and absorb more than disposables do. These prefolds, on the other hand, hardly absorb anything, when it comes to baby pee. They do a really good job, though, with spit up.
Low Tech/Questionable Quality Diaper
The “natural” color version of these diapers shed terribly after the first wash. The pills just don’t seem to go away even after repeated washes. I don’t even want to use them as burp cloths.
wonderful as a burp cloth. thinner, soft material. LOVE. will be buying more and replacing all others with these.
Great as burp cloths
A friend who is a mother recommended that I buy these to use as burp cloths when I was pregnant. I did, and am glad. They really do the trick. They’re super absorbent, so I don’t have spit-up leaking through to my cloths. They’re a great size. My son usually spits up right on the cloth, not elsewhere. Because you’re not supposed to use fabric softener with baby laundry, I found them to be a little stiff at first, but after several washes, they’re now very soft.
Not good in comparison with indian prefold diapers from places like Green Mountain, Little Lions, etc. These will barely hold a few ounces of liquid without leaking. I bought two packs and lost the reciept, so I guess I’ll just use them as rags, or extra wipes when I run low. I won’t be using them as diapers, though.
I used these for baby spills, drool, and other baby misc needs. I wish they were a bit thicker, but they are a good basic diaper.
