Muslin squares

(12 Posts)

My ds's bedtime comforter is his 'muzzy', one of those smallish muslin squares that John Lewis sells. The problem is he only likes what he calls the 'soft' ones (maybe because they're a fine weave/thread), and JL appears to have stopped selling this type in favour of the larger, coarser version (well, the woman at the Oxford Circus branch told me yesterday that they had).
Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to get the soft ones? I've tried Mothercare but it's the same story. We're down to our last grey, torn, germ-ridden muzzy and I dread to think how we'll cope if ds loses it. Help, please!

we had this problem too! DS2 took to using an old cot sheet instead - much softer than the muslins. Fortunately we have 4 of them

At least muslin squares are cheap!
My ds has a passionate attachment to an expensive pair of hand crafted felt baby shoes (£20 a pair)
Had to buy another pair for back up.

Asda had some the other day they were really soft

My ds will only have a muslin square if it's been in the tumble dryer! This makes them very soft, even the ones from Mothercare.

my ds has one too which also has to go in the tumble dryer but only if it has a comfort smelly sheet thing in too, that is really soft when it comes out and if it is a bounce sheet or a tesco, etc one he won't have it!! honestly though, these sheets make them very very soft, you may get away with it as a last resort.x

Prostrate! Yeah that's a good one!
Don't think the Muslims would be too happy if you used them to mop up sick though somehow!

Ooops! Wrong thread! Kind of! Sorry!

Marks & Spencer used to do soft ones.
