A mother-friend of mine gave me my first bunch of terry towelling nappies. Of course, we had no plans to use them as nappies – these days, terrycloth finds more use as a spew rag. With a collection of about 5 of these, I thought I was set. Later Mum bought another couple of packets, and I took them but secretly thought we were now overdoing it. How wrong I was! Within a couple of weeks I found myself in Baby Bunting picking up another packet of 12 because we just didn’t have enough to keep up. Now, with our collection of 30-40, we can get away with doing a terry towel load once or twice a week. As it turns out, terry towels are very handy things!
- Spew rags – for burping
- Feeding rags – tuck into your bra while breastfeeding if your bub likes to make a mess
- Put a towel onto baby’s play mat or cot if they’re prone to vomiting while playing (my reflux baby is always spewing up!)
