These six pack of premium quality muslin squares are made from 100% pure cotton, perfect for next to baby’s skin. Made from natural fibres these nappies are wonderfully absorbent, breathable, soft, yet durable and are at a highly affordable price point.
Perfect for use as a cloth nappy for newborn babies, for shielding when breastfeeding, burping and mopping up cloth or as a lightweight baby blanket. Also, unlike other high street brands, there’s no wrinkling up or mis shaping after washing, they just get softer.
70cm-Works perfectly from birth to potty and can be made smaller by folding the corners in to the centre of the nappy to form a smaller (50cm) square. See here for a video on how to do this.
How to use
These can be fitted to baby with a nappy fastener such as a pin or nippa, cover with a waterproof wrap and make sure all the nappy is tucked inside the wrap to prevent leaks. Alternatively, these work well padfold into a wrap or stuffed into a pocket and they dry so much faster than modern cloth nappy inserts.
Folds we like to use include: Kite, Jo, and Bat fold across all ages- see here for a how to video and guidance.
When baby outgrows Jo and/or Bat fold we also like the Gaynor fold which gives nice wide wings to go round squishy tummies.
For extra absorbency fold with a slimmer flat such as muslin or birdseye flat (simply lay flat on top of one another and fold together), or boost by adding a hemp insert or booster. These might not work for all babies overnight but may with some when boosted.
Top with a fleece or disposable liner to keep baby dry and to simplify the disposal of solids (post weaning).
Remember, you can reuse your wraps 3-4 times by wiping them out with a wet cloth if they do not come in to contact with poo.
How to wash and dry
Slim and robust but please be gentle
Pre-wash once before use on a short gentle wash (30/40 degrees) to fluff up and remove manufacturing residue and to create absorbency. Dry naturally.
Once in use, wash at 40-60 degrees (40 is best if used on one baby, baby is 3 months+ and well). Do not use fabric conditioner. Washing regularly at 60 may reduce lifespan. Will most likely take the occasional hot wash (90 degrees).
Dry naturally if possible. Low tumble only. Can be placed on warm (but not hot) radiators to speed drying but air dry is best.
