Baby Muslin cloths make the ideal lightweight baby blanket and come in an array of colors and patterns, making them the ideal eco-friendly newborn gift!
Muslin can serve as an invaluable nursing cover while out and about, hiding breastmilk stains while remaining highly breathable. For breastfeeding mothers, muslins provide nursing cover when nursing out and about.
1. Lightweight Blanket
This lightweight blanket uses cotton and viscose from bamboo to help regulate body temperature. Additionally, its fabric draws away moisture to help prevent overheating on humid nights. Machine-washable for convenience and available in twin/twin XL, full/queen, and king/California king sizes.
This 100 percent long-staple combed cotton blanket is soft and luxurious. With its silky texture and ice-blue hue, this blanket boasts an outstanding 4.6-star rating from more than 8,600 reviews!
Most weighted blankets range between five and 30 pounds in weight. Their quilted outer covers are composed of synthetic material or natural fibers filled with plastic or glass beads to provide deep pressure stimulation to help calm and relax children, ultimately improving their sleep.
2. Teething Comforter
Muslin cloth can be an invaluable source of comfort during teething for both infants and their caregivers. With its soft texture, muslin fabric can soothe gum irritation. Plus, dampen it in cold or freezer temperatures to cool baby’s mouth down more efficiently!
Babies tend to throw up after feedings, so keeping a large muslin cloth handy is a simple yet effective way to protect their clothes. Plus, these clothes are easily cleaned so you can quickly clear away any spillages that arise.
Burping blankets can also help save the mess when burping your baby, as they will catch any vomit or drool that occurs while burping. This saves lots of hassle!
3. Burp Cloth
Soft material prevents irritation to the baby’s delicate skin while its multiple layers absorb spills and dribble. Wrap it over your shoulder while baby burp-sweat your newborn or use it during travel to keep spit-up off of clothing.
If your baby is teething, muslin can help relieve some of their discomforts by being held around their neck in folded pleats or wrapped around frozen ice cubes or banana slices for soothing purposes.
This organic cotton muslin is safe for your child’s delicate skin and reusable so you can continue using it as they grow.
4. Bath Washcloth
Muslin cloths might seem like innocuous scraps of fabric to non-parents, but new parents know otherwise: these essential pieces of equipment are an absolute necessity! Ideal for wiping up vomit, sick, drool, and anything else that has made its way onto your child (or furniture!), these muslin cloths make cleaning up after baby much simpler!
Muslin cloth can also be used to wipe down your baby after each feeding to avoid a “cheesy neck”, and when teething occurs you can place an ice cube inside a muslin blanket to ease their discomfort.
Muslin fabric is designed to breathe, making it the ideal material to keep babies cool and comfy. To get the most from your muslin clothes, be sure to use natural detergents. Such as Noodle & Boo’s Ultimate Fabric Care Bundle when cleaning them.
5. Baby Bib
Bibs are essential baby items, particularly when your little one dribbles, spits out, or makes big spills. Be sure to get one with dark colors to help conceal stains more efficiently.
These bibs feature an open bottom with a trough design to help catch food that drips down from above, typically made out of plastic and only worn during meal times.
Smock bibs are another great choice for babies who make lots of messes when eating. Though these may cost more, if properly maintained they should last months or years!
6. Travel Blanket
Muslin cloth is an ideal travel baby blanket, providing protection from spills or accidents on the road while simultaneously being great as drool cloth and for wiping up food stains.
Muslin squares are large enough to use as a bassinet sheet or mosses basket cover, offering your little one baby fashion. Their breathability helps protect them against overheating.
