I was looking for some cheap straddle blankets and came across the large muslin cloths from A&A. They are ridiculously expensive and looked at buying some second hand. Would this be ok or would I be better off just buying a couple brand new. I'm thinking that the second hand ones will end up looking to grotty and used!

Honestly muslin cloths are used to wipe up baby spit, baby vomit and other miessential continuously and whilst I will re use the ones I got for my first child I wouldn't get them second hand. I do have anais ones I got in an amazon sale and they are nice but I also got some other lovely huge ones as a present and they were fab. Will check the label once my wee one is up from her nap.

In my experience the A&A stuff washes/wears very well but if you find they are past their best then they would make good spares... you can never have enough imo!

I get my A&A swaddles in tk maxx, normally £17 for three massive ones versus £30ish in John Lewis.

No. I wouldn't buy second hand muslins. There are extra-large muslins available in lots of places, Tesco for example.

I love the aldi ones they are smaller and fit in the changing bag better. I had a sicky baby and went through 2-3 a day, I'd go quantity over quality to be honest.

I wouldn’t. There are giant ones on Amazon at £11 for two.

I would. And did.

TK Max reduce them to £10 a pack if you keep an eye out.

So long as they are clean and in reasonable condition, it would be fine. Chances are they'd be softer than new ones too, having been washed more.

What’s the appeal of this brand? As in, why even consider used ones? (I was offered used A&A muslins by a wealthy friend and thought she was bananas, so I’m really curious.)

I didn't think of tk maxx. Thanks I will check it out.

EssentialHummus a friend raves about them and says they are so worth it. I think I have just jumped onto the bandwagon. blush
