Baby Essentials #1 – Muslin Swaddles

We’ve asked experienced moms to take stock of things they couldn’t live without – the essentials in a baby’s happy life.  We found some very surprising and enlightening answers.

For instance, muslin swaddles top the list as must haves for a good night’s sleep. What is that?  A good night sleep with an infant?  Tell us more!

To hear these moms tell it, using a muslin swaddle recreates the blissful feelings of the womb: a close, comfy environment that stretches and gives with movement.

Why muslin?

Muslin has a lightweight, open weave that allows the baby’s body temperature to regulate itself naturally –  not too hot in the summer, and cozy, warm enough in winter.  The fabric is soft, stretchy, comfy, and the best part is that it gets softer and fluffier the more times you wash it.

We carry two muslin brands that are rated “best” in the crowded field of swaddles: Aden & Anais and Luna Lullaby.  Both brands feature great washablity, cute designs, and huge dimensions (47 X 47) for lots of swaddle power.

Beyond swaddling, these muslin blankets can be used as a burp cloth, a portable crib sheet, a shade cover over a stroller, a nursing cover, a tummy time place, and a lovie.

Come in to see and touch for yourself.  We have oodles of muslin swaddles for happy babies and moms all over South Carolina.
