Why use a Muslin Baby Blanket?
What do we mean by “the right blanket?” It all comes down to the fabric. Many materials are simply too heavy and harsh for a baby’s delicate skin. Luckily, that isn’t the case with muslin.
Muslin dates back to ancient times and gets its name from Masulipatnam, the port town in India where it was originally traded. The soft cotton fabric remains popular today, especially among new parents. Here are some reasons why so many moms and dads choose to use Muslin Blankets for their little ones:
- Natural and breathable. Unlike other materials which can trap a baby’s body heat and prohibit movement, muslin is an incredibly soft and breathable fabric. It’s freely woven, allowing heat to escape and fresh air to enter so your baby can be comfortable and calm.
- Mimics the womb. Muslin blankets are designed to envelop babies in a gentle, warm environment, similar to that of the womb. The fabric even becomes softer with every wash!
- Helps babies sleep. Everyone knows that sleep is essential to babies. But discomfort can definitely interfere with shut eye. It’s only logical that a soft, temperate womb-like environment can help your baby establish better sleep patterns.
- Aids in breastfeeding. Due to the lightweight design of muslin blankets, babies can still feel the heat of their mother’s chest during breastfeeding. Soft, snuggly muslin also allows for easy handling of your baby and a very comfortable hold during feeding time.
