What do you find is the best thing to catch spitup?

I use a receiving blanket but I find them thin. I considered a cloth dipe but they are kind of bulky. What about flats? Would they absorb enough? Maybe I should just use some cheap hand towels?

(DS has reflux so there's a LOT of spitting going on around here)

I always just used pfs. We still use them for everything around here.

we use infant prefolds they are super soft and absorbant! I had them tie dyed so you dont see the spit up stains. My ds has reflux too, so we always have one in reach

It seems that I always used my shirt or pants. But I used to use the greber pf's from wal-mart. I now use infant chinese Pf's. Good luck! DS spit up all the time. DD has been better than he was though.

Same here!! We have about twenty or so and at any given time have at least three on hand. My babies have also worn bibs for most of their days the first year of life. I have the cute Carter's one's so at least they match some of their outfits, but it makes me sad sometimes to cover up those cute outfits....course the days when they're NOT covered....LOOK OUT!!

Yep, that. Actually bought them tie-dyed off ebay with DS2, and never used them for diapers, only for burp rags. We get all kinds of comments about them when we're out!
