Muslin wrap explained

Muslin wraps are swaddles made from cotton gauze, an ultra-soft and lightweight natural fabric that is highly absorbent and breathable for comfort all-year-round. An essential for newborns, muslin wraps keep babies soothed by bundling them up like a cocoon to mimic the feeling of being back in the womb. This helps newborns to sleep better and longer as well as keep them calm and happy during the day. Versatile muslin wraps can also be used as a pram shield, nursing shield, change table cover, blanket, play mat alternative, burping cloth and more.

Baby wraps in different colours and patterns

From bibs to bedding, the colour of your baby essentials will impact the look and feel of the nursery and the overall home. Our new arrivals keep your little ones safe and comfy while looking super stylish by following the latest Australian trends.

The difference between a swaddle and a wrap

A muslin wrap is essentially a swaddle made from muslin fabric. You can also find baby swaddle wraps in other fabrics, such as bamboo swaddles, jersey wraps and merino wool wraps to keep newborns toasty warm in cold weather.

Swaddles and wraps can be used for more than just settling your baby for a better sleep. You can drape them over your shoulder as a nursing shield, over the pram as a sun shield, use them as a blanket or lay them down as a makeshift change table cover during nappy time.

When bub starts to roll over, it’s best to swap from a swaddle to a baby sleeping bag or sleep suit that allows greater freedom of movement.

100% cotton muslin wraps

Our 100% cotton muslin wraps are lightweight and wonderfully soft on babies. The natural fibres are ultra-breathable, highly absorbent and quick drying, making them ideal for newborns. They measure 120cm x 120cm and feature an adorable polka dot design for extra cuteness.

Cotton is a top pick for muslin swaddles but you can also find eco-friendly organic cotton muslin wraps and bamboo muslin wraps with viscose that are silky soft and breathable.

How to use a swaddle

The idea behind swaddling is to create a comfy cocoon that makes newborns feel like they are still in the womb. This helps to calm anxiety and allows them to sleep longer and better. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you swaddle like a pro:

  1. Spread the muslin wrap out on a flat surface in a diamond shape with one of the corners pointing towards you.
  2. Fold down the top edge of the blanket to create a triangle shape. Lay your baby down with their feet pointing towards you. Make sure their shoulder is just below the fold in the wrap.
  3. Keep your baby’s right arm slightly bent and fold the right side of the wrap up and over their body, tucking it underneath on the other side. Leave the left arm free.
  4. Fold the bottom of the wrap up over your baby’s feet, tucking it behind their shoulder if it's long enough.
  5. Take the remaining side of the wrap and fold it up over the baby’s left arm and body. The swaddle should be tight enough to firmly hold the arms but still allow babies to wiggle their hips and legs for proper development.

Benefits of a baby wrap

A muslin baby wrap is one of the most useful items you can buy for newborn babies. Swaddling your baby can help to:

  • Soothe them by mimicking the cosy sensation of being in the womb
  • Calm a colicky baby
  • Protect babies against startle reflex
  • Promote a longer and deeper sleep
  • Reduce the risk of SIDS by removing pillows, toys and blankets
  • Keep babies on their back while they sleep

Cleaning and maintaining your baby swaddle and wraps

Keep your baby swaddles like brand new by washing them regularly. Our muslin wraps are conveniently machine-washable to take the fuss out of cleaning them. We recommend washing them separately before using them for the first time.

Wash our wraps on a gentle cold cycle with similar colours and avoid bleach, soaking, ironing, dry cleaning and tumble drying. Hang them on the line to dry to maintain their softness and to prevent colour fade.

What is a muslin wrap?

A muslin wrap is basically a swaddle that has been made from muslin fabric. As a type of natural cotton gauze, muslin is durable, super lightweight and easy to clean. It’s typically crafted with multiple layers that are breathable and absorbent, making muslin wraps perfect for bundling up babies all year round for cuddling, breastfeeding, sleeping and so much more. You can even drape your muslin wrap over prams to shield little faces when you’re out and about together.
