For this post, I have put together a collection of the best muslin cloths for babies currently available. For all my recommended baby product guides, with top picks, see my list of newborn essentials.

Tiny Alpaca Pack of 5 Organic Muslin Squares

MY TOP PICK:
My top pick are the Tiny Alpaca Pack of 5 Organic Muslin Squares as they made from luxurious organic cotton that gets softer as you wash it. I also love the quirky animal prints and bright colours of these.


A baby muslin is a cloth, usually made from cotton, which can be used in many ways. Mums will know how many muslin cloths you can get through, so buying multi-packs is a good idea, so you always have a supply of clean ones spare.

Muslin cloths are ideal for when you are breast or bottle-feeding to cover up or to catch milk before it hits your clothes and they can be used to easily wipe baby’s mouth and clean up any spills.

Large muslin cloths can be used as light blankets or as a comforter when burping your baby.

We’ve put together our top 8 picks of the best muslin cloths, most of which have excellent customer reviews with a majority of 4-5 star ratings.

Mums-to-be or new parents will also find our guide to the Top 100 Baby Products super useful.
