Baby Muslins

Honestly, you can’t beat muslin squares as a gift, baby muslins are great and have a ton of uses. I wish I knew about muslin swaddles when my son was born because I absolutely love them, they are super absorbent, easy to wash and very quick drying. Use them as an impromptu baby bibs, a changing mat, a breastfeeding cover, a sun cover, a sheet, a swaddling blanket and so much more. Read more about muslins.
