What is a muslin Cloth ?! {GIVEAWAY with Parental Instinct}

I will never forget when I first became a mom, I had no freaking clue what a muslin Cloth /blanket was! I was like ‘why the flip would anyone buy such a thin looking blanket”. As the years went on, I began to notice the endless uses for these odd little blankets called muslins.

What is a muslin cloth: A Muslin cloth is a finely woven and breathable fabric normally made from cotton.

When Violet was born we were lucky enough to get sent a pack of massive muslins from Parental Instinct. Now if you do not know who Parental Instinct are, they are just about the coolest and most innovative baby and toddler clothing brand in SA! Every item they have has some kind of nifty trick to it, like the mosquito repellant sleeping bags, the stain resistant fabric that is a god sent! The color coded snaps on the baby grows, so no more buttoning up and realizing you missed one or did the wrong one.

Check out their hilarious video about their muslin cloths!

The Parental Instinct massive muslin’s are the SOFTEST thing I have ever felt, they are truly amazing to feel, so light and breathable but it still makes a perfect cuddle swaddle blanket for baby, they are made from 100% bamboo and are a big 1.2m x 1.2m!

These Bamboo muslin’s stay soft! In fact they actually get softer after use and a few washes, so do not be scared to put them to work, we do want you to get the most out of them and have super fun while doing it!

So what can I use a muslin cloth for???

The uses are endless… Seriously these just last forever! But here are a few handy and some silly things we do with the massive muslin’s.
