Faye and Lou extra large rainbow muslins
When I first decided that I wanted to breast feed I was a little nervous about the prospect of doing it in public, but at the same time I was certainly not going to stay locked away at home. There are quite a few items designed for covering mum and baby available but I wanted something that was maybe a little more multi-functional, especially to start off with because I wasn't entirely certain what I would need. So I ended up investing in a set of three Faye and Lou extra large rainbow muslins, these are very similar to typical muslin cloths that are widely available except they come in an array of bright colours and are almost a third larger (90 cm x 90 cms). Therefore, making the extra large muslins ideal for covering me and the baby discreetly while we both got the hang of feeding in public - not that I ended up using them much for that purpose.
A pack of three Faye and Lou extra large rainbow muslins typically retails for around £30 and can be found in stores such as John Lewis or online from Amazon. I opted for the pack of three muslins in pink, turquoise and purple - all of which are lovely strong and bold colours. Muslin cloths are really one baby item that I have found essential for daily use and it is really nice having them available in colours that aren't baby pink, baby blue, white or cream. As far as I am aware you can also purchase the Faye and Lou extra large rainbow muslins in red, navy and turquoise.
So far I have typically used these extra large muslins for nearly all tasks that I would use a regular sized muslin for, but with the additional benefit of making a nice light blanket, crib or pram sheet and for using as a make shift shade for tucking over my car seat to keep the sun or rain out of my little one's face.
I have been using these extra large muslins for months now and they get washed repeatedly (and sometimes on hot washes) and have so far showed no sign of losing their colour. In fact the muslins despite plenty of use look pretty much like new.
From me I couldn't give the Faye and Lou extra large rainbow muslins any less than the full five out of five stars they really are one essential item that I wouldn't want to be without. And personally I would highly recommend the Faye and Lou extra large rainbow muslins to anyone expecting or caring for a baby.
Just as a side not the Faye and Lou extra large rainbow muslins do come in rather a nice cardboard box and I personally think that a packet of these would make for a really nice gift to anyone expecting a baby or a new mum. I know that I will be giving these as presents to my expecting friends in the future.
