lol lots of things! we used them for a quick dabbing of milky/drooly chins, toss it over you shoulder for an instant nursing cover, thin blanket in the summer, makeshift change pad, burp pad.... the list could go on :)

I know they make really great burp cloths lol. I think they are also good for swaddleing when your baby is brand new.

Swaddling, burp rags, a quick changing place so you dont get piss and shit on your carpets or couches, a light blanket for when a real blanket is too much, a way to clean up various liquids, a way to prop up the babies head or roll them to place on either side of baby under the bassinet sheet to keep them from rolling onto tummy while sleeping, a quick snot rag in an emergency....
