Since my third child’s birth in March, I’m quickly discovering how much I enjoy muslin fabric. From clothing to large blankets perfect for swaddling, I love the feeling of my baby wrapped in the extra softness that muslin provides.
If you are looking for organic muslin for your child because of sensitive skin or just because you want a healthier fabric for your baby, iplay has a variety of organic cotton options made without the use of toxins, synthetic fertilizers or pesticides making it the safest fabric available.
Wesley received the printed Organic Muslin Wrap Gown ($27) from iplay which is available in size newborn to 9 months. While it is a little big on him, he will be able to wear it for an extended period of time since the six month size starts from 10 lbs and goes up to 18 lbs. Love that!
Don’t let his face fool you. He may not look it but he is actually quite cozy in his gown. Wes just happens to be fascinated with mommy’s camera.
The top and sides features ties while the legs have a snap enclosure. I love the wider leg openings which give Wes plenty of freedom in his movements and leave his legs covered but still allow me access for some tickles and kisses! The snaps are easy to use for diaper changes as well.
We also received a white Muslin Bib ($10) which works well to keep his gown protected during feedings and will be extra handy once he starts to really drool. I love the larger size and extra strong velcro attachment. I took these pictures before washing them for the first time because I knew they would start to look different after washing. The fabric has gotten very soft and while it no longer has a smooth look, it is so cozy and comfortable! This is a great addition to any child’s wardrobe but is especially nice for the warmer seasons or hotter climates.
We also had a chance to try out these Organic Muslin Wipes which come in a package of three. They work great for small messes such as spit up and drool. They are the perfect size to carry around easily in purse or diaper bag and guarantee your child’s skin will be wiped with safe and extra soft fabric!
