• for little dreamers


They’re a staple of many families’ lives – especially when there’s a new baby around – but did you know you can do more with them than just swaddling, using as a burp cloth and wiping up dribble? We’ve rounded up some of our favourite uses for muslin cloths both for your baby and around the home.

For babies…

1. Use it as a swaddle to help prevent the startle reflex during sleep

2. Use it as a bib during messy mealtimes when weaning

3. Drape it over your shoulder when burping your baby to keep your clothes clean

4. When out and about, use it as a cover when breastfeeding if it makes you feel more comfortable

5. Drape it over a stroller to use as a sunshade (remember to ensure there’s plenty of air flow)

6. Lay it on the floor as an impromptu changing pad

7. Place it in a bouncer seat to protect it from spills and sick

8. Use it as a mattress protector between the mattress and crib sheet

9. Lay it on your changing pad for your baby’s comfort during nappy changes and to keep the surface clean

10. Use it at bath time to gently wash your baby
