Gerber Flannel Burp Cloth Review

Parenting can be messy. All babies spit up, and occasionally that means disaster. Sometimes our daughter will spit up a river of milk and smile afterwards. It’s just part of having an infant. It’s also why it’s important to get high-quality burp cloths. 

Gerber Flannel Burp Cloths are large; they are absorbent; and they last. We absolutely adore this product. These are the best burp cloths we’ve used, and we can’t recommend them enough.

Perfect Size

A big burp cloth is very valuable when you burp a baby, and that’s exactly what these burp cloths are. They are 19 inches long and 13 inches wide. That is 247 square inches of burp cloth. In other words your baby will never spit-up so much milk that you cannot use this burp cloth to clean up the mess. 

The burp cloths fit easily on your shoulder, which is prime burping position. And having a burp cloth that covers your entire shoulder shoulder matters if your infant decides to let out some milk as she burps.

The burp cloths will also cover your infant well if you use the cloth as a bib while feeding. 


Gerber Flannel Burp Cloths take in a lot of liquid without dripping, which is something you’ll be thankful for after the first big spit-up. We have never once encountered a spit-up situation that these burp cloths couldn’t handle. This is particular useful for journeys outside the house. It’s nice to pack a burp cloth knowing that you won’t wish later that you had two more to clean up the mess. This is the kind of baby product that sets your mind at ease.


We don’t do anything special to wash these burp cloths; they get tossed straight into the washing machine. And they hold up very well. So far, not one has even remotely come apart. The flannel material stands the test of repeated use, making this a good long-term buy for budget shoppers.

These are by far our favorite burp cloths. Imagine thick, flannel sheets and you’ll understand why these work so well with baby messes. Parenting is messy, the right tools can make the job a lot easier.
