SPITUP HACK: Dedicated zip-up hoodie to protect mama or other caregiver from projectile spitup.
WHY: When spitup comes from all directions and without warning, burp cloths and towels over the shoulder don't cut it. I needed full protection especially if I was already dressed to go to work or out of the house.
PROS: Zipper style offers quick access and removal. More comfortable than the poncho you've considered.
CONS: No style points here - this is for function. It will get stains and you will get sick of wearing it. Also, you may need 2-3 backups for bad days.
BONUS TIPS: A hood is not required but can double as a shoulder burp cloth; or a place to mentally hide when things get really ugly. Also, cream-colored or white/light fabric colors work well for obvious reasons. Choose a maternity sweatshirt or sizes larger than your normal size for a longer cut that shields your lap. Deep pockets give you places to store extra burp cloths.

Yea, I went there. Nearly half of all babies spit up, regularly. Some more, some less, and for many it's just plain scary.
