waddling babies dates back to time immemorial – even baby Jesus was traditionally swaddled. And swaddling has come back into fashion in recent years as it has been shown to help baby settle and sleep.

Mums can choose to swaddle their baby in almost any piece of fabric and muslins are perfect for this. Soft and breathable, a muslin can also offer a variety of colours and prints. Indeed, mums often chose what muslins they want on the look alone.

Muslins are also useful as burp and dribble cloths; one draped on the shoulder of whoever’s carrying baby can save many a spoilt top!! I would have thought that virtually every new mum should buy a selection! Or be given them as a gift. Muslins are often packed attractively making the ideal gift.

However, swaddling a baby is not that easy, especially if mum has no one to demonstrate! In this case, the ‘ready-made’ versions are ideal. Designed to make swaddling simple, there are a number of versions – just read on for more information!

Drifting peacefully to sleep

Thoughtfully designed, the brand’s award-winning Swaddle UP encourages children to drift off to the land of nod in the natural sleep position with their arms up. The one of a kind swaddling solution, suitable from new-born up to four months, features the patented ‘wing tip’ design, enabling little ones to bring hands to face and mouth to self soothe, helping to establish positive sleep patterns from day one.

Just as the cold snap is setting in again, we are excited to announce that the 2.5 TOG Love To Dream Sleep Suit is back in stock and available to order now. A sleeping bag with a quilted blanket for added warmth, the Sleep Suit means parents can do away with blankets knowing their little ones are comfortable, safe and snug all night long.

Love To Dream was founded in Sydney in 2009 by entrepreneurial first-time mum, Hana-lia Krawchuk, who noticed that her son kept on ‘breaking out’ of his traditional swaddling cloth. After extensive research into the history of swaddling, and supported by medical research that suggests if babies can self soothe then they tend to sleep better and for longer, Hana-lia created the world’s very first ‘Swaddle UP™ - a simple to use swaddling suit that allows a baby to safely sleep in the natural arms up position, while also allowing them to self soothe. Eight years on and with an ever-growing collection of styles, colours and gender-neutral prints, Love To Dream is fast becoming the world’s leading sleep brand.

Natural swaddling comfort from Petite Piccolo

Petite Piccolo's Baby Muslin Swaddle Blankets are made from 100% prewashed cotton and large in size at 120cm x 120cm. Each of the blankets are prewashed so that the soft texture of the product can be immediately felt.

The pack of three provides two different prints and one plain option.

Swaddling is a way of snugly wrapping up baby in a blanket to help them feel warmth and security. It’s a great way for helping them keep calm and prepare for sleep. Baby can be swaddled from birth up to 5/6 months.

Parents can also half swaddle baby if they prefer their arms out. The Baby Muslin Swaddle Blankets can be used in many different ways such as swaddling, burp cloth, nursing blanket, breathable stroller cover to block out the sun, lay on the changing table and tummy time mat.

The benefit of swaddling a newborn can prevent them from making any sudden movements. By keeping their arm in the swaddle they tend to sleep longer and sounder. It makes them feel secure and safe as it reminds them of being in the womb.

The Petite Piccolo products are natural, and made from 100% prewashed cotton muslin. The range offers a selection of breathable fabrics that absorb wetness, but are both multi-functional and versatile.

Our collections are defined by the foundation pieces every baby needs. Crafted for baby’s well-being and comfort, and perfect for enjoying those precious moments together.

Each piece from the collection is crafted from a 32s yarn count, to achieve the softest touch against baby's delicate skin.

Core pieces include: Baby Muslin Swaddle Blankets, The Luna Blanket, Baby Muslins and Baby Muslin Hooded Towel Set. All carefully artworked in pretty, neutral, unisex prints for style conscious parents.
