With this step-by-step guide and a little practice, you’ll be a master swaddler in no time. The beauty of swaddling is in its simplicity. If you have muslin and two loving hands, you can’t go wrong. It’s just about finding a technique and establishing a routine that both you and your little one are most comfortable with.
Swaddling is one of the most gentle, effective, and beneficial practices for parents and their children. It is said to be familiar to babies, as it recreates the secure and cosy feeling of the womb. It has also been said that swaddling babies prevents spontaneous movements called the moro or startle reflex from waking them*—which allows for a much more peaceful night's sleep.
For generations parents have cared for their babies with muslin. Breathable, versatile and soft as a mother's touch, the do-it-all fabric helps simplify what can be a chaotic time. No matter how you're using our 100% cotton muslin swaddle—pram cover, burp cloth or nursing cover to name just a few—it surrounds your little one in comfy goodness round the clock.
Our muslin is pre-washed so it's super soft from the start and stays that way wash after wash. Created by a mum on a mission to comfort babies in the best way possible while making parents' lives simpler, our award-winning original swaddle continues to set the standard worldwide.
