Muslin ❤ The Official Fabric of Summer!

If you’ve been shopping for your baby registry, you’ve probably seen a lot of buzz about muslin. You might be wondering “what is muslin?” – and you have come to the right place! Bebe au Lait is located in California, so we’re no stranger to keeping cool on hot days and nights. We’re experts in muslin baby products and we’re excited to tell you all about it.

What makes muslin different from regular cotton fabric?

Muslin is a cotton fabric with an open, plain weave. The weave is looser than regular cotton, which gives the fabric great softness, movement and flexibility. It’s also known for excellent breathability and absorption.

Perfect for a safe sleep

One of the greatest, and most well-known, things about muslin is its breathability. When Baby is swaddled closely in muslin, she’ll stay warm and cozy but her body heat won’t get trapped which is important to avoid overheating. Baby will be happy because she is sleeping soundly, and you’ll have some peace of mind knowing that she’s safe in her muslin bundle.

Great for On-the-Go

If you love to take Baby places in her stroller and car seat, you’re probably no stranger to the delicate dance between keeping Baby covered from the elements, while making sure there’s proper air flow. That’s why muslin is perfect for summer strolls and trips in the car seat! That open weave of muslin allows for great air flow, so you don’t have to stress out about the temperature under the cover.

Super for Spit-up

Muslin fabric makes a great burp cloth. It has a slight texture and excellent wicking qualities, which means moisture soaks up right away!

Classic Muslin & Oh-So-Soft Muslin

If you’ve been shopping on our website, you’ve seen our great selection of muslin. Have you noticed that some items are “Classic Muslin” and some are “Oh-So-Soft Muslin?” Classic Muslin is our traditional muslin made from 100% cotton. It’s a great fabric for Baby and we’ve gotten a lot of feedback from our customers that our cotton is even softer than others!

We’ve taken muslin a step further with our Oh-So-Soft Luxury Muslin, made from a blend of 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. This blend gives the unique softness of bamboo fiber, while retaining the strength of cotton muslin. It really is ‘oh so soft!’

What is your favorite muslin item? Do you love the classic or Oh-So-Soft blend? Comment below to share your advice with us and moms everywhere!

BEBE AU LAIT ACQUIRES PUJ!

Bebe au Lait®, the award-winning designer and manufacturer of premium mom and baby soft goods, announced today that it has acquired Puj, the innovative baby bath accessories company.
Both brands share the mission of simplifying parenthood through thoughtfully designed mom and baby products, each developing a diverse range of products that support parents in their everyday lives, including products for nursing, sleeping, feeding and bathing.
The acquisition of Puj builds on Bebe au Lait’s foundation, and expands their range beyond soft goods. Both brands strongly believe in the importance of providing simple solutions to the everyday challenges of parenting, a commitment that can be especially seen in Puj’s unique Puj Tub: a baby bathtub that flexibly folds and conforms to nearly any sink.

“We have long-admired Puj founders Ben and Katie’s unique design aesthetic and the highly-respected brand they have built together. Bebe au Lait can now leverage our knowledge and expertise to build upon Puj’s success. We are very happy that Ben and Katie will continue to be highly involved in Puj and will stay on in the company as shareholders. We are thrilled to have two brands with product offerings that integrate seamlessly into families lives.” Says Ronnie Ekelund, CEO and Co-Founder of Bebe au Lait.

“The idea that we now get to work together to further drive innovation for parents is a dream come true. Between Bebe au Lait’s expertise in soft goods and Puj’s experience with hard goods, we will be unstoppable together. When brilliant minds come together with 1 common goal; Magic Happens!” says Katie Richardson, Co-Founder, Puj

Both brands will continue to design and manufacture products under their respective brand names.

Bebe au Lait ❤ Sophie la girafe

BAL_201705_Sophie-Launch

Straight from Paris to the shores of the California coast comes a sweet yet modern collaboration of two favorite baby brands. Sophie la girafe meets Bebe au Lait!

Sophie la girafe is an icon. In her 56th year she sits firmly at the top of baby gift registries across the world. She hasn’t let the success go to her head; she hasn’t changed who she is and that is one of many reasons for her continued reign. A simple toy made from 100% natural rubber, Sophie is still produced in the same way she was more than 50 years ago, and there is no need to change something so perfect, so wholesome.
Many parents buy Sophie as their baby’s first toy because she is designed to stimulate all five senses – the touch in her soft skin, the smell in her barely-there scent, the taste as she soothes sore gums, the sight of her giraffe markings and the sound of her little squeak.
Sophie is baby’s first friend and because of this unique bond that parents also share with this little animal and essentially the brand, Bebe au Lait is delighted to be collaborating with Sophie la girafe in a limited edition line of products, featuring a whimsical Parisian street fête in a delicate shade of pink and a delightful minty blue, that we know will continue that special bond.

Available in:
Our functional and breathable Car Seat Covers
The plush and soft muslin Nursing Pillow
Our ultra-breathable Nursing Covers with the only patented neckline
Plush and cozy Strap Covers for car seat straps, strollers and carriers (coming later this year)
