Organic Cotton Muslin Squares

 

New Additions take immense pride in presenting our line of organic cotton muslin squares and blankets available in a variety of designs. Our muslin cloths for babies come in 5 beautiful colours that can be used to great effect for feeds, burping or splashing in the bath, and just generally wiping your little ones down to catch milk and solids.

Our baby muslin squares have been sewn with sustainability in mind. Soft, easy to wash, breathable, and versatile, they are 100% cotton. We use cotton for our burping cloths because, as parents, we understand the need for making the world of tomorrow a greener place for our newborns. As a result, we implement mindfulness by using greener alternative textiles than what may be found elsewhere.

 

Organic cotton is great for sustainability as it helps combat climate change and supports unconventional organic cotton farmers against GM companies. Supporting these organic cotton farmers is essential as they take the extra steps needed to protect the environment, animals, and people by conserving water, supporting biodiversity, and using healthy soils instead of hazardous, toxic, and synthetic pesticides. You can feel the love for the ecosystem in every organic muslin square we produce and if you want you can test our organic cotton muslin squares to see for yourself.

 

Bamboo Muslin Swaddles

 

Swaddling is one of the most efficient ways to calm your baby down, as swaddled babies will eat better, sleep longer, and cry less. Utilising bamboo muslin swaddles is perfect as the bamboo textile has an irresistibly soft texture that offers additional anti-static benefits. The micro-sized holes in the bamboo fibres give the weave natural breathability that allows for easy airflow, fast evaporating moisture, and an easy win against overheating.

 

Bamboo has an extremely durable and resilient viscose with natural thermo-regulatory properties to keep your newborn comfortable in any condition. The bamboo viscose also has an antimicrobial bio-agent, known as “bamboo Kun'', that is naturally hypo-allergic and antibacterial, which counters irritable alternatives and plays well with sensitive skin. 

 

Of course, bamboo also has a reputation for being an extremely sustainable plant that benefits the ecosystem. Bamboo grows quickly - full size in a mere 3-4 months. Compare this to your standard oak, pine, or chestnut which can take up to 30 years to grow. Combine this with the fact it requires no fertiliser and self-regenerates from its own roots and you can rely on taking a little bit of bamboo out of the forest without causing any significantly negative climate change. 

An Ideal & Green Material

 

Bamboo absorbs twice as much carbon dioxide as trees, which is why they are known to act as carbon sinks. It also generates a high amount of oxygen, totalling up to 30% more than most plants and trees. Additionally, bamboo cultivation is a relatively simple process that doesn’t taint the crop by using nasty pesticides and chemicals, unlike other materials.

 

Bamboo’s level of strength, durability, safety and hygiene are a fantastic way to protect biodiversity and produce a safer environment for the future, which is why New Additions is so adamant in using it to procure reliable and sustainable muslin swaddles.

 

With all this in mind, it’s no surprise how easily our muslin swaddles accomplish the tasks of acting as a competent burping cloth, swaddling your little one up at night, and covering over their cot beds when needed.  The New Additions muslin swaddle has fantastic use for multiple applications as well as being unbelievably soft and kind on your baby’s delicate skin. Seeing is believing!

Is it good to swaddle a baby?


Swaddling is one of the most efficient ways to calm your baby down, as swaddled babies will eat better, sleep longer, and cry less. Scientists don’t have the exact reason for this but suspect it may be because swaddling your newborn makes them feel more secure. Being swaddled also aids in preventing newborns from startling themselves awake by providing them with a snug wrapping that will remind them of the warmth they felt in the womb. As long as you stick with safe swaddling and sleep guidelines, swaddling your infant firmly but gently (never too tightly) at bedtime isn't any riskier than swaddling during naps, and your newborn will benefit greatly from the effects of swaddling.

How do you swaddle a newborn?


Swaddling is one of the most efficient ways to calm your baby down, as swaddled babies will eat better, sleep longer, and cry less. Scientists don’t have the exact reason for this but suspect it may be due to swaddling making your newborn feel more secure. If you want to swaddle your newborn:

  1. You should first spread out your designated swaddle as a blanket and fold one corner down.
  2. Next, you should place your baby’s head above the fold, wrapping one side of the swaddle over their body making sure their arms are on the inside.
  3. Follow this up by tucking the swaddle underneath the baby and folding it up from the bottom and ensuring your baby's legs can bend within the wrap and that the blanket isn't wrapped too tightly.
  4. Finally, you should wrap the other side of the swaddle across your baby’s body and tuck the swaddle under.

It’s important to note that you should always lay your bundled baby on their back, stopping the swaddling process after they reach about 3 months, or whatever time they start to display the ability to roll on their back. This is the principal method of swaddling that’ll help lull your newborn into a gentle sleep.

Why use bamboo for a swaddle cloth?


As an environmentally friendly resource, choosing bamboo is an obvious choice for a company that cares as much about humanity's carbon footprint as New Additions. Bamboo is a great choice for textile products as it makes for irresistibly soft textures for your baby, even more so than 100% cotton, as it offers additional anti-static benefits. Bamboo viscose also has natural thermo-regulatory properties that will keep your newborn comfortable in any conditions, be it blistering heat or freezing cold. Your baby will be kept warm by the bamboo blankets, as they have micro-sized holes in the bamboo fibres, being naturally breathable and allowing moisture to evaporate faster than cotton. The breathability of the weave allows for airflow and helps combat overheating. The bamboo viscose also has an antimicrobial bio-agent known as “bamboo Kun'' that is naturally hypo-allergic and antibacterial, which counters irritable alternatives and plays well against sensitive skin. This bamboo viscose is also an extremely durable and resilient fibre, and of course, sustainable.
