I saw a mom feeding a baby while using the most adorable set of burp cloths when I was out shopping recently.
I never mind asking strangers about baby products, so I asked where she bought the burp cloths she was using.
To my surprise, she said a friend of hers had made a set of burp rags for her and given them to her for a baby shower gift.
