Top 10 ways to use our muslin swaddle
Our 100% cotton muslin swaddles are not just used for the art of snuggly wrapping up your little one. Here are our top 10 uses:
1. Breastfeeding cover
Breastfeeding isn’t the easiest of tasks and especially when out and about. Our cotton muslin swaddles are 120x120cm, making them large enough to give you the privacy you need and our breathable open weave fabric means you and baby don’t overheat. Also our killer prints mean you don’t have to look like you are wearing a table cloth while doing so.
2. Burp cloth
We don’t know about you, but Mil’s Lyla was a ‘sicky’ baby so our muslin size is perfect to ensure you do not need an outfit change after a spit up episode. It is also soft on baby’s skin if you are having to keep them upright on your shoulder for a while.
3. Tummy time
Our muslin swaddle is the great for on the floor fun. Its breathable, soft and big enough to really roll around on.
4. Pram cover
You will never realise how useful this is until you have a baby. When you need to keep your baby shaded and cool, our muslins are the number one go to to throw over, without the infant prints you see everywhere. Its also great when baby needs an unstimulated environment to settle down for an afternoon nap.
5. Changing table cover
It's great to cover those horrible plastic changing tables when out or even at home, allowing your baby to lie on something nice and soft.
Swaddling a baby makes them feel safe and secure, it mimics the feeling of the womb and helps babies sleep for longer. Our muslin is big enough to make sure they are snuggled up securely. Check out our post on how to swaddle your baby here.
7. Fashion accessory
This is a big one for Mil & Clo - when you're a mum you hardly have any time for yourself, let along to think of what to put on. Our muslin swaddles make the ideal fashion accessory, team it up with a plain white T and jeans or use it as a cover up for the beach. The idea is anywhere, anytime you can throw it on.
8. Baby Blanket
We made the muslin swaddles 120cmx120cm, which means they are large enough to use as a blanket to wrap your baby with, and keep their little legs warm when they are a bit older for pram walks. As they are breathable your little one wont get overheated.
9. Giant Baby Wipe
Muslin is a super durable fabric, which means it lasts wash after wash, it also drys very quickly too which is handy. When your little one has a cold or get their dinner over their entire face our swaddles are our go to essential. And did we mention they get softer with each wash!
10. Outfit Protector
After a baby you want to start looking nice again, however the amount of times we have put a new top on to later be covered in grubby stains from our little ones. Using our muslin swaddles over your shoulder, as a shawl or even a scarf means you wont look like you just used your top as a serviette.
