Muslin swaddle blankets are on nearly every new mom’s wish list these days.
With my last two pregnancies, I spent a lot of time searching for the BEST, budget-friendly options in 100% cotton, organic cotton and bamboo muslin swaddle blankets.
I discovered these amazing blankets when baby #3 was born and I was hooked after I bought my first Aden + Anais muslin swaddle.
Why are they so great? For one, they’re very oversized, which makes swaddling those newborns so much easier.
I remember fumbling with those silly flannel receiving blankets with baby #1 that were NEVER large enough to actually swaddle a baby. The large size makes a huge difference!
Second, they’re breathable, meaning they make a great nursing cover and, of course, reduces the risk of baby overheating.
Because they’re large-yet-lightweight, they are easy to pack in a diaper bag, throw over a stroller on a sunny day, and also double as a burp cloth.
Muslin blankets are soft, durable and wash up nicely, which is important to this practical mama!

Since falling in love with muslin blankets of all kinds (bamboo, organic cotton – I adore them all), I’ve been on the hunt for ways to find these blankets at the lowest prices.
If you’ve ever shopped for these swaddles before, you probably know that muslin baby blankets are typically not cheap!
A single-layer Aden + Anais blanket (the first brand to introduce these blankets in the US) can run around $18 at a boutique, which is a little steep for my budget.
At the same time, it’s often true that you get what you pay for, and although you can find cheap muslin swaddle blankets from various sources, some are a much better quality than others.
How to Find the Best Muslin Swaddle Blankets at the Lowest Prices
Here’s my favorite places to to shop for what I’ve found to be the best muslin swaddle blankets online:
#1. Nicki’s Diapers
I’ve discussed my love-hate relationship with cloth diapers a little in previous posts, but the vast majority I’ve purchased have come from Nicki’s Diapers. While shopping for cloth diapers I stumbled upon their muslin swaddle blankets which I L.O.V.E. so much.
They carry a variety of brands including Aden + Anais, but my favorites are the Nicki’s Diaper brand and Imagine bamboo swaddles. These two brands cost significantly less than A&A and in my opinion the quality is just as amazing!
They currently offer single-layer bamboo swaddles, 4-layer bamboo blankets and even 48×70 single-layer throw blankets. Yes, you can have your very own cozy baby blanket for snuggling up on the couch with. 😉
If you sign up for the Nicki’s Diapers newsletter you can find out when the best sales are happening.
They often have offers that include a free bamboo blanket with a certain purchase threshold, so if you’re planning to buy a cloth diaper stash for your new baby, you could score a free blanket and try out this brand!
You can also check out their “Seconds” category for even better discounts.

You can find a variety of off-brand (or lesser-known brand) muslin blankets on Amazon at much lower prices than most boutiques. This 4-layer Hudson Baby blanket is one of my favorites and it’s an incredible value for the quality. I actually like this one more than the original Aden Dream Blanket, which isn’t quite as soft!
#3. Baby Mall Online
This site is really a hidden gem for a variety of discounted baby items, but especially for muslin blankets. You can find two-pack swaddle blankets like these for as low as $9! (Prices will vary).
They also carry Hudson Baby blankets at amazing prices. While they do charge a flat $6.95 shipping, you can sign up for their newsletter to receive exclusive discounts.
Check out their organic cotton baby clothing while you’re there. I’ve purchased several items and they’re amazingly cheap for organic cotton and sooo soft! They recently added toddler sizes as well.
At Jet.com, you can find some hefty discounts on a variety of brands of swaddle blankets.
I’ve ordered household essentials from Jet several times and scored a great deal on an Aden+Anais dream blanket for my newest baby. They offer discounts based on things such as quantity of items purchased and opting out of returns.
You receive free shipping on orders of $35 or more.
If you order from Jet, be sure to start at the Be Frugal website, search for Jet and click through the “Shop Now” button. This will direct you to Jet.com but you’ll save an additional 2.5% on everything you purchase.
Another benefit of shopping at Jet for muslin blankets is that they often carry discontinued patterns that you can’t find in other online stores. So if you’re looking for a certain blanket or pattern to match your nursery, you might find it here.
#5. Bambino Land
Bambino Land carries a HUGE variety of muslin swaddle blankets of all kinds: single layer, 2-layer blankets, large throw blankets (“Big Bambinos”), and they come in regular 100% cotton, organic cotton as well as bamboo.
The prices are much lower than the other big brands and the quality is excellent. I’ve owned several and have given a few as gifts also. My personal favorite are the organic cotton (again, insanely soft!).
I love that Bambino Land is owned by another mom just like me with a small business and she goes out of her way to serve her customers. You can sign up for the Bambino Land email list and then join her private Facebook group to get the inside scoop on current deals (which are frequent and worthwhile!).
If you’re crazy about muslin baby blankets, these 5 sources should help you to save significantly. Happy shopping – and saving!
