    I've seen loads of lists and nursery packs with them included but I haven't got a clue what they're for! Anyone know?

    They are a godsend, according to everyone I know with babies!! (I have never used one so cant say for sure) but my friends reckon they are just so handy to have. You use them instead of bibs and towels when feeding baby - mop up dribbles, burp cloth, over your shoulder etc, they also mop up any spills you may have with drinks on tables or wooden floors. they are large enough to be used as a cover for you when breastfeeding if you want to keep it discreet, comforter for baby, basically everything. They are £3 for 3 in asda and also £3 for 3 in Ikea as well. I have some and am planning to see what they are like! xx

    A friend of mine said she found them a godsend to place on the bedding before laying baby down - she said it was MUCH easier to change them than change all the bedding if baby was sick a bit!

    oh YES YES YES, lol muslin squares are a godsend, they are so abosrbant, I still have some now, from ds I'lll have to buy new ones for this one, but they are great! Acerooni, cannot sing praises enough!

    I actually thought the same and my best mates mum a childminder brought me loads and they were soooo handy! Babies often like to sleep with them too.

    Ive never used a muslin. Don't know what all the fuss is about, found them rubbish since they don't soak up anything. Recommend little burping towel things though

    Sorry to nitpick, but if you've never used muslin squares how did you find them to be rubbish?
