As a mum of two reflux babies I know all about unexpected spills and endless wardrobe changes. Both of the twins suffered from reflux as infants and only after we started them on medication we saw some improvement. Several times a day I would find myself holding one or both after a long and tiring breastfeed only to have all the milk come back up, not only covering their own clothes but mine too. They had a big talent for avoiding the burp cloth on my shoulder, it just never seemed to be in the right place to catch the spills! But lucky these days there is a solution, the Burby by Messy Little Monkeys.

Messy Little Monkeys is the love baby of Australian mum Riki, who happens to have a messy little monkey herself. After experiencing the messy effects of reflux with her baby Lily she decided to design the perfect burp cloth: one that is soft, absorbent, stays put and covers more than just a small part of your shoulder. Does that sound to good to be true? Take a closer look at the Messy Little Monkeys burp cloth, the Burby.

The first thing you will notice about the Burby burp cloth is its unique shape, covering both your front and back and connecting under your arm so it won’t slide. This generous size will make sure it catches even those surprise fountain burps that reach all the way down your back, we’ve all had our share of them! The three layer protection offers brilliant absorbency and keeps your clothes dry.

As the Burby is made from a combination of bamboo and cotton with a nylon PU coated inner you can profit from the great benefits of bamboo fibres, bamboo is soft, antibacterial and naturally deodorising as well as gentle on baby’s skin. A real bonus is that you can also use the Burby as a discrete nursing cover, how convenient! The Burby is available in 4 colours, a perfect gift for a new baby and a must have for any mum.

To find out more about Messy Little Monkeys, to take a closer look at the Burby burp cloth ($19.95) and to order online visit, shipping is just $5 Australia wide (flat rate).
