    I use them all the time for sick, snot etc!
    They're great for breastfeeding in public, I kind of drape it over the side of his face to hide my boob a bit better.
    By the way it's MusliN not muslim hehe

    i searched it in google hahaha no wonder loads of crazy things came up!!!! :oops:

    so they dry fast, so do you think they would be better to get rather then burping clothes... (there a cotton material)

    I would definitley recommend them.....burping cloths are ok, but muslins are bigger, dry really quick and are useful for all sorts of stuff, eg when you have to lie them down on someone's carpet and you don't want them to be sick on it. :lol:

    A cloth that's roughly eighteen inches by eighteen, and is made of a light absorbent cloth called muslin, kinda like cheesecloth. I have lots of them, you basically hold them under the baby's chin when you are burping them and it catches the spew -up. My mother used them before me, I find them invaluable as they cover much more than a bib and are very washable and tumble dry.
    Some people used old terry nappies!

    Oh and one of the nurses in the hospital called them muslims too and said they were great for wrapping the turkey in a bit of muslim! I could only imagine this fiercely indignant ayatollah being wrapped around a turkey!

    Oh dear....that's a joke folks, not meant to be offensive, so please don't take it as such.
