Sometimes as a Mummy, a teeny part of you can wish your lifestyle retained some small semblance of your old more sophisticated one. You think fondly of the days when high heels were an everyday option, when your handbag could be clutch-sized and when you could consider wearing a silk blouse without the fear of milk or spag bol splatter ruination. However, there are means to cling on to old, stylish, long-forgotten ways and when a Marloe London swaddle arrived on my desk, my thoughts were that the girls behind the brand had hit the nail on the head. Not everything a new mother wants to wear, adorn or hold needs to be alphabet patterned or festooned with characters and the chic muslins by Marloe London will have even non-mummys clamouring to have one too.
For little ones, their generously sized muslins are perfect for swaddling, using as a breastfeeding cover, draping over the pram to provide shade and throwing down in the park to use as a play mat. For when those baby days are over they are perfect wrapped around your neck as a chic scarf or even hitting the beach as a sarong. They do a grown-up colour palette ranging from ombre dip-dyes to suble block colours and they can also be personalised with a your initials, name or a special date. We have the gorgeous Aqua Green and Blue Dip Dye one.
A piece of kit that works for both mummy and babe and complimented with beautiful packaging, a Marloe swaddle would make an awesome new baby pressie. 10 out of 10.
