Not only are these baby muslin wraps adorable and practical, they also are intended for one of the oldest traditions in baby care – swaddling. Swaddling your baby during their first few months of life has countless benefits.

Benefits of swaddling:

For decades, midwifes and healthcare providers have recommended swaddling babies during their first three months of life. When your little one wrapped up in a baby muslin wrap, it simulates the familiar and comforting feeling of the mother’s womb. Here are a few of the benefits of swaddling your little one with our sustainable and organic muslin wraps:

  1. Longer and more sound sleep
  2. The traditional hands-over-heart swaddling position allows babies to self-soothe and sleep better on their own
  3. Prevents accidental face scratching
  4. Soothes babies and alleviates colic
  5. Prevents unnecessary awakening due to startle reflexes

The term ‘muslin’ is derived from the French word ‘mousse’ due to its soft, foamy texture and feel. Muslin fabric is a delicate yet durable fabric made from natural cotton fibres with a soft, breathable open weave. The open weave on muslin fabric made it perfect for use in regions with high humidity – especially in India where the fabric originated. Muslin cloths are an extremely versatile textile and have a wide range of household uses, but their super soft, breathable and natural fabric makes them the perfect material for babies’ sensitive skin.
