Mop up the Mess
Probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think ‘muslin square’ – the material is ultra absorbant and washes really well so any mess is clean and forgotten in no time. Ideal for throwing over your shoulder to protect your clothes when burping your baby as well. Often referred to as a burp cloth in the US.
Our large muslins are the perfect size for swaddling your newborns in the first couple of months if they’re still too little for a Babasac baby sleeping bag. Swaddling your baby makes them feel secure and mimics the feeling they had inside your tummy. There’s a blog post all about the benefits of swaddling here.
The Perfect Light Blanket
For nap times when you’re out and about or any time during the warmer months, muslins provide the perfect coverage to keep baby warm and comfortable. We have seen them used as blankets to sit on in the garden, the park or even the beach.
All of our muslins are double layered, 100% cotton and super soft. They feel really lovely against baby’s skin, so they are ideal to use as a comforter for your baby. They’re easy to pop in your bag too, so no lugging around bulky soft toys! So many little ones have a muslin as a comforter, you can have several on the go, so you won’t be looking for that missing favourite teddy! Lily used to have a large muslin which she called “gigi” and it signalled sleep for her. It would come out when she was tired or ready for bed.
Cover up for Sleepyheads, changing mats…and you!
A lot of our customers use our large muslin swaddles as covers for their Sleepyhead instead of a sheet, as they are large enough to cover entirely and the fabric is breathable. They can also be used as a cover on a changing mat. They’re even big enough to cover you up by the pool – the opportunities are endless!
What will you do with yours?
