    Muslin is a soft cloth for when your little one is sick or a little messy lol.
    its in theory a bib that does not go around the neck.
    great for placing over your shoulder when breastfeeding and then if it comes back up its over the muslin not you :)

    They just appear to be handy for everything baby related. Therefore, you get through a few each day so need a stash so you always have a clean one to hand.
    My DD never had a dummy, but took her 'uslin' to bed every night till she was 3 just for comfort. It was so cute!
