Muslins are a very versatile product and can also be used as flat nappies and work particularly well on newborns with nappi nippa’s and an outer wrap, they have a good degree of absorbency and are slim fitting. Great if you ever run out of cloth nappies and need something to use as an emergency. Use the same folds for either terry squares or prefolds. Or as a folded pad inside a birth to potty wrap, like the Flip or the Peenut.
Muslins are used so regularly as mop up cloths and burp cloths these days (for which they are excellent), people forget that they used to be known as “muslin nappies”. One of the advantages of using washable nappies is that you will never run out of nappies and never have that midnight dash to the local garage or late night supermarket to buy some more. Most parents have muslins lying around the house, and even if you are not in the habit of using your muslins as nappies, in an emergency you will find a muslin works perfectly stuffed inside your favorite wrap and will tide you over until your dirty nappies are washed.
Muslins also go well into pouched “pocket” wraps for a fast drying nappy. For an older child, of course, the lower absorbency means more frequent changing than some other nappies, but the speed of drying or the convenience of the pouched wrap for daycare etc may well be a determining factor.
If you layer two muslins together before folding in a traditional terry shape, you actually have absorbency comparable to most birth to toddler nappies, but are still quite compact. Again, both the drying speed and the cheapness of this option are attractive.
In recent years the general quality of muslins on the high street has really fallen in line with the astronomical rise in the price of cotton. Muslinz are a new brand which have a lovely thickness and also at a very reasonable price.
Washing Instructions – Do Not Use Ecover or any other liquid detergent with this nappy. Wash between 40- 60 degrees. See washing instructions for full details on how to wash and dry your dirty nappies. Nappies and muslins can be tumble dried on low heat.
