Nuscheli Lifestyle: Burp Cloth

This post is part of a series called Nuscheli Lifestyle, which is here to highlight the many different uses of Nuscheli cloths. 

There are many different ways to burp your baby; over your shoulder, over your knee, tapping baby's back lightly, or more firmly etc. Not always, but sometimes burping results in some milk spilling. And sometimes, that spilled milk lands on your clothes, in your hair, down your shirt, or splattered on the floor (hopefully not on the antique rug). While we are not here to tell you how to burp your baby, we do offer a product to help you manage spilled milk and prevent ugly spills (on yourself, especially).


Our Nuscheli are roughly 23 inch squares - large enough to cover a good portion of yourself when burping a baby. The organic triple layer gauze cotton is very absorbed, yet lightweight. Drape it over yourself and wait for the milk to land on the scarf instead of you, while burping your baby. Or use the Nuscheli to wipe up spilled milk that missed you and  landed on the floor, furniture or elsewhere instead. 


Bring a few Nuscheli on the go, they are easy and light to carry along. Use them as a burp cloth, to wipe up spilled milk, or use them as a scarf on your baby for catching spilled milk far after the burping. It is much easier to swap out a Nuscheli than an entire outfit (yours or your baby's!). These are perfect for when you need an extra layer between you and your baby! 



Nuscheli Lifestyle: Head Bandana

This post is part of a series called Nuscheli Lifestyle, which is here to highlight the many different uses of Nuscheli cloths. 


Did you wear head bandanas as a child? Its a tradition we are willing to continue (or bring back!) with our own collection of Nuscheli. They are the perfect size to fit around baby and toddler heads. Nuscheli used as a bandana keeps hair neatly tied back and out of your child's eyes, and it provides sun protection outdoors.  Just fold a Nuschli diagonally and tie it in the back of their head. 


Besides the practical (and cute!) aspect of children in head bandanas, I am almost certain that wearing them ignites their imagination. Our daughter will request to wear one during dress up, or when she is fighting dragons, especially. For whatever reason the head bandana makes her feel more fierce! I think we can trust a child's positive reaction on this use of Nuscheli. Go ahead, give it a try!

Nuscheli Lifestyle: Bib

This post is part of a series called Nuscheli Lifestyle, which is here to highlight the many different uses of Nuscheli cloths. 

Introducing solids to your baby is an incredible (and incredibly messy) milestone! Whether you puree your own baby food, buy pre-made pouches of baby food, or skip spoon-feeding altogether and let your baby self-feed, the goal is always to get most of the food into your babies mouth instead of next to it. We all know that this skill is rarely met from the start and requires a lot of practice (and patience for parents)! The messiness is tedious, but the bib doesn't need to be!

From experience, anything to make this milestone and mess easier on us parents and caregivers is usually greatly appreciated. 

Our Nuscheli scarves make for a perfect bib for a few reasons. To begin, they tie on easily and cover a lot of surface to catch most food bits (or splatters) falling from and out of your baby's mouth. Their pure organic cotton content makes them extremely absorbent and keeps your babie's neck and clothes dry and clean while working on this masterful eating skills. If the Nuscheli gets very soiled (and you can't stand it any longer!), you can untie it, flip it over and use the clean side of the folded triangle for a "fresh" bib and continue the task of eating.

When your baby is done eating, Nuscheli scarves can be used to wipe your babies messy face and hands. Two in one! Simply use a clean side of the Nuscheli and dampen it, or not, to wipe up the mess. The fabric is soft and absorbent, and most importantly, its allergen free and therefore safe to use on babies delicate skin to clean it after a meal.

You can also wipe down the highchair tray or table top with the same Nuscheli. If you are home for this meal, we recommend just rinsing the soiled Nucheli in the kitchen sink with mild soap and hanging it up to dry afterwards.  Because of its lightweight gauze composition, it will dry quickly and can be put back to use again very soon. If it's in a disastrous condition after the meal, then it might be better to toss it in the laundry for a good soak.

If you are planning to be out of the house, these are easy and lightweight to take along in your diaper bag. Pack one or a few to use as a bib, burp cloth, cute bandana, scarf! They are so versatile and practical on the go, especially.
