Review: SewLomax Muslin/Swaddle Set

SewLomax have just launched their debut baby collection and I was offered the chance to review one of the products in the range. Emma Lomax has been taking the fashion and beauty world by storm for the last two years (since 2011) with her ethically produced collection of wash bags & accessories, and this year has introduced her highly anticipated baby range. I was sent the Muslin/Swaddle set to have a look at so here are my thoughts.

First impressions are good although I'm not entirely keen on the packaging. It's a cardboard box and inside the muslins are kept clean with a plastic bag however the cardboard box is too big and flimsy for my liking. I think this product would benefit from a sturdier box. I do like the fact that they have a 4 step guide as to how to swaddle your baby on the back of the box though with a small diagram. I thought this was really good especially if you're all fingers and thumbs like me when it comes to swaddling babies.

SewLomax have this to say about their muslins: "For countless generations, mothers have swaddled and cared for their children with natural muslin. SewLomax helps continue this tradition with the softest swaddles and fashion-forward prints that say as much about your style as they do about practices that bind mothers together around the world."

The muslins themselves are beautiful, so soft and very big (100cm x 100cm). They're made from 100% cotton so perfect for delicate newborn skin. For the large muslins you get 3 in a pack and you can choose from three different colours; blue, pink or green. Since I'm not expecting my baby till next year and I want a surprise I asked if I could have the green set since it's more neutral. It's a lovely shade of green and would suit a boy or girl. I do think adding in maybe a pale yellow of some sort would benefit as well and may be quite popular with people who don't know the sex of their baby yet but want to be prepared or receive as a gift. The 3 muslin pack costs £26.00 which I think is reasonable considering you get 3 massive muslins, works out around £8 each. They wash at 30c too which isn't bad.

SewLomax also have a selection of other baby items in the range from Dribble Bibs (£8.00) to Bath Towel Sets (£26.00) and even a handy little Mummies Only Pouch (£20.00).

To purchase your very own set of Muslin/Swaddle blankets you can either visit www.sewlomax.com or pop into your local John Lewis store.

Overall the muslins are lovely and there's so much you can do with them. You can of course use them to swaddle your baby as they're big enough but they can also be used for helping to burp baby or used as a cover up if you're breastfeeding. Very handy. The pricing is fair but the packaging for me needs a little improving.

Mummies rating - 7.5/10
