Spit Up Clean Up, Part II

It has been raining non-stop for what feels like months. It's really only been three days, but that's enough. Call me lazy, but I have no desire to get out of the house with a baby and her 20-pound carseat and stroller, 10-pound diaper bag, and assorted toys and blankets in the pouring rain. It's just way too much trouble. So, we've spent the better part of the last few days in the house avoiding the rain and the germy (potentially swine-flu infected) masses. Okay, not really but I feel a little less lazy when I use my child's welfare as my excuse for not leaving the house for three days. In an effort to be productive and to have something to do with myself while we have been cooped up inside, I have been perusing Etsy for fun stuff Hadley might need. Or, that I might want her to need.

One thing we never seem to have enough of is burp cloths. We use them for everything-- cleaning up spit up, of course, but also for drool, spills, and general wipe downs. I usually use those white organic, Gerber cloth diapers that you can buy in bulk for these clean ups, but sometimes, it's just fun to have pretty ones around to liven things up. And, to make up for the fact that I routinely change clothes three times before noon because someone keeps spitting peaches on me.

Right now, I am loving modern, graphic burp cloths. Here are a few I found that make me drool.

1. Etsy shop boopalinabebe's Eco Modern Burp Cloth in I Mod Pod, $10-- I love anything in blue and green and this pattern is amazing!

2. Etsy Shop BabyMomo's Green Dots Chenille Burp Cloth, $7-- perfect for a boy or girl and I'm loving polka dots right now.

3. Etsy Shop HazelMay's set of 2 burp cloths in Disco in Mango, $10-- pink without being too girly or froufrou. Can you tell I have a thing for dots?

4. Etsy Shop Whimzeeebaby's Yellow Sparrow Burpies, set of 3, $22 (two prints and one solid)-- I love the birds and can't get enough orange right now. This would be gorgeous for a boy or girl, too!

Next up: Bibs. You have to fight fire with fire. Or, in this case, the buckets of drool with beautiful bibs. It's the only way.

Do you live in the NY/NJ/CT area? Cause it's been raining here all week too. That plus a sick baby and I have some serious cabin fever!! Cute Etsy finds.

No, I'm actually a Southern girl:-). I'm so sorry your little guy is sick-- I hope he's feeling better soon!
