2. As a changing mat
Made from 100% GOTS Certified organic muslin cotton, muslin swaddle wraps are oh-so-soft and gentle on your baby’s skin, making them the perfect base cover for those countless diaper changes. You can even carry one in your bag at all times in case you need to change your baby outside of your home. It’s a safer and better option as opposed to placing your baby on public changing tables that have already been used by several people.
3. Use it as a nursing cover
If you need some privacy whilst nursing, simply cover yourself and your baby lightly with the muslin blanket while you breastfeed. Muslin’s natural weave makes it a breathable fabric, thus ensuring that your baby doesn’t feel hot under the blanket, and remains cozy & comfortable.
4. It works perfectly as a burp cloth
Just sling the muslin swaddle over your shoulder before you burp your baby and watch as it soaks up all that spit-up! Don’t worry about over-washing the fabric because muslin actually gets softer with every wash, making it an extremely durable fabric.
5. As a playtime cover
Whether your baby is still just trying to roll over or already exploring the world slowly on his/her tummy, a muslin blanket makes a great cover for your play mat/bed/crib. It’s soft and gentle to touch, and has a natural stretchiness to it.
6. To cover your baby’s stroller
If you want to cover your baby’s stroller to keep them protected from harsh sun or for any other reason, you can lightly drape the muslin blanket over the stroller. Muslin’s natural weave allows for constant airflow, thus making it a safe and breathable space for your baby.
7.Recycle and use it as a kitchen cloth
Even though 100% GOTS Certified organic muslin is an extremely durable fabric, there might come a time when you are done using your muslin swaddle. Instead of throwing it away, simply repurpose it and use it as a kitchen cloth.
