So after being a mom for two months I personally have given up on draping a burp cloth over my shoulder as I burp baby Z.  Most of the time she spits up on me after I have burped her and have removed the cloth.  The other thing is they are very small I ended up using clean kitchen towels or even her bibs most of the time.  Don’t get me wrong they are great to use while traveling but at home I just have stopped caring all together.  So for me burp cloths get a meh!
