New mum beats mess with own product design
a mother battling with the challenges of a reflux baby has created an innovative burp cloth to help make life easier.
riki mcconaghy’s burby is an alternative to standard cloths which is made from soft, absorbent bamboo, has a triple layer with middle waterproof lining and a practical design that goes over the arm and stays in place.
“it’s amazing how messy a baby can be and how much mess parents are capable of dealing with,” she says. “the extra washing of nappy cloths and clothes was endless.
“i needed a burp cloth that protected my clothes at the front and back, was functional, soft on baby’s skin, absorbent yet soak-proof and would not fall off.”
the product also doubles as a discreet breastfeeding aid and neatly rolls into a handbag.
“we’ve received great feedback on the burby as being a welcome wardrobe staple to help tired and frustrated parents get to the other side of this unwelcome health issue.
“while nothing quite prepares you for sheer amount of care and attention reflux babies require, the burby can help parents prepare for how they manage it.”
burby and matching face washers are available from messy little monkeys.
