Kids these days have it too easy. Especially babies. Babies have it WAYYYY too easy. You feed them, change their clothes, change their diapers, wipe their butts, burp them, wipe the spit up off them, bathe them. It’s just endless.
Let’s talk about those last couple items. Now we all know that in a pinch you will use anything for a burp cloth: a shirt, your hand, a napkin (dirty or clean), whatever happens to be handy. But you don’t want to do that. You want something soft and absorbent. You know why? Because babies have really soft skin. I know it’s shocking but they do. And when you are giving them a bath? Obviously you are not going to use anything on hand, you want real washcloths that are soft and stay soft? Have you ever used a wash cloth and notice that over time they don’t seem that soft anymore?
So I know it seems counterintuitive but Brooklyn Bamboo has the answer.
Bamboo Washcloths/Wipes and BURPY Baby Bibs BURP Cloths. When I first heard of them I thought “but they’re bamboo, that’s like wood” but I was wrong. I don’t know how they do it, but these are soft and they stay soft. I mean, I know that bamboo is a soft wood but still! Bamboo must be some sort of miracle plant, because it’s used for food (if you’re a panda), furniture, flooring, and now soft baby accessories. No matter how many times I wash these they don’t seem to inevitably get unsoft (if that’s a word); they actually get softer and softer, perfect for my baby. And since she ended up with my sensitive skin, maybe I should try using them too (just the washcloths that is).
This may sound cliché but I am astounded by these washcloths. My experience with baby washcloths boils down to products that are thin, flimsy, scratchy, and small. I normally avoid baby washcloths all together and just use a one of our regular size. The problem with this is I wash my daughter’s laundry in different detergent/softener than what I use for my laundry.
Brooklyn Bamboo Washcloths to the rescue!
As soon as I removed the first washcloth from the package I smiled because I knew this wasn’t the type of product that I feared receiving. It was squishy soft and as I unrolled it I noticed that it is much larger than most baby washcloths. Measuring 10” x 10” these washcloths are close to a standard washcloth but not quite. After running the washcloths through the wash I noticed that they actually felt softer than when they originally were unpackaged.
More importantly, this product is hypoallergenic and organic. As the mommy of a little one that has extremely sensitive skin we have to be very careful about the products we introduce to our home. As one can imagine, soaps, baby washes, shampoo, washcloths etc… can result in red, irritated skin that causes rashes, bumps, itching, and often crying. Since we introduced the Brooklyn Bamboo Washcloths our little one has actually incorporated them into her playtime while in the tub. This is a definite winner in mommy’s book.

These are definitely a must have for all new parents. At my baby shower I remember receiving a number of gifts, including packs of burp cloths. Then, I opened 2 packages of cloth diapers. I was almost embarrassed as I had not made it a secret that I had no intentions of using cloth diapers; mainly because of fear of the unknown. I must have given an awkward smile or something because my friend quickly reassured me that they were not messes that come from the bottom but rather messes that come from the top a.k.a. burp cloths. I quickly came to learn that the little 3 packs of cutie burp cloths that I received simply weren’t going to cut it. They were thin, small, and barely covered my shoulder. The cloth diapers were a must have.
So how does this relate to the BURPY Baby Bibs/BURP Cloths? That’s easy. Look at them! This product truly is versatile as I am able to use them as a bib or burp cloth. I am able to slide the cloth over my shoulder for burping or use it as a bib that snaps into place. Not to mention, they are absolutely huge! I mean this in a good way. I mean, they aren’t huge, huge but in the world of small burp cloths and bibs … they are huge!
Once again, even more important, I love that this product is organic! Bibs and burp cloths touch our little ones face, neck, and sometimes hands. It is important to have products that won’t irritate your little one’s skin especially when they have extremely sensitive skin. With Brooklyn Bamboo, I know that we are introducing products that will keep our little one happy and pain free.
Our bibs and burp cloths are thick, long, and soft. They are perfect and I am thrilled to have been introduced to them.

Both products are perfect for baby and parents. They also prove to be the perfect baby shower or welcome home gift as both the bibs and washcloths come in general neutral, natural colors: light bamboo green, natural off white, and natural light yellow.
Brooklyn Bamboo offers one of the softest baby products that this momma has been introduced to; especially in the realm of washcloths bibs. And let’s not forget, all products are hypoallergenic and organic.
Brooklyn Bamboo products are perfect for homes that are looking to add a touch of green, have little ones with sensitive skin, love bamboo, or simply love soft and luxurious products. We love our bibs and washcloths!
