In my opinion, you can't have too many. We probably have about 25 and we went through several a day when DD was little. She didn't spit up all that much but she was a messy breastfeeder. Even though DD is 2 now, we still use them all the time for runny noses, etc.
BTW, cloth diapers make the best burp cloths.
I just used swaddling blankets that shrunk and were too small to swaddle DS.
I had 6 burp clothes but never used them.
I honestly never used them.
DS wasn't a big spitter-upper... and even when he did and got some on my shoulder it was the tiniest amount that it didn't matter or I grabbed a Kleenex.
I bought a pack of prefold diapers, but really didn't use them with my first DD- BF babies are not usually the biggest spitters.
That said, my second is a MESSY nurser and tends to spit out mouthfuls at the end of her nursing sessions. LOL So, they really have come in handy.
Someone gave me a pack of the fancy ones the first time around, but the prefolds work SO much better.
marleyc: BTW, cloth diapers make the best burp cloths.
True.... Burp cloths are never as absorbent as cloth diapers.
cswatch:Burp cloths are one of those items you really can't have enough of. The more you have, the less laundry you need to worry about doing. I think we went through maybe 9 or 10 a day... we would use a fresh one at every feeding. Also, cloth diapers work great. DH's aunt gave us a bunch and on each one she sewed a cute little ribbon, lace, etc. to customize it a bit.
Yep, you will use the crap out of them. I had a GERD baby so we went through TONS.
