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 ❤ 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

Snuggle Blanket:
IMG_7530_lowRes
Researchers recently found that women need to be hugged once a day for their health! I’m sure this is true for most of us, so when you can’t physically be there, the next best thing is our Snuggle Blanket – so soft and cozy, it feels like a real-life hug.
Alternative uses: great for trips – bringing something familiar from home to sleep with can help to settle a restless little one.

Pair one of our fun hooded towels with a rubber duckie and you will have just about the best gift for your little valentine! Bath times will be more fun, little heads will be warm and little bodies will be swaddled in a plush, water-wicking wonder!
Alternative uses: Perfect for the pool and great as a cape while running through the sprinklers!

Nursing Cover:

What says ‘I love you’ more than breastfeeding? Nothing. So treat yourself to our pioneering product, the nursing cover. Multiple feedings, all day long, in perfect, serene privacy. No matter where you are or who you are with (hello, father-in-law!) baby can concentrate on feeding and you can gaze at your little darling, while marveling at what a great job you are both doing.
Alternative uses: Excuses: “I’m sorry, I can’t help with those dishes – I’m nursing”, we won’t tell. Seriously; wear over a baby carrier to protect from sun or wind.

Car Seat Cover:
20160106-_D3A0666_lowres

Designed to stay-put, to protect baby from wind, rain and over-zealous visitors. The cover will not blow in baby’s face waking them from their much needed nap – a gift in itself!
Alternative uses: a full length zipper allows the cover to open completely and snaps at the back secure the cover open when baby is awake.

“A party without cake is just a meeting” Julia Child.

We have plenty of meetings around here…so we got cake. Because our theme was “Pink and Blue” in honor of our main logo colors, we thought it would be fun to have a pink and a blue ‘gender reveal’ cakes.
