Have you heard of Aden + Anais? They are an ever-popular company to new moms across the world specializing in cotton muslin swaddling blankets. Chief executive officer Raegan Moya-Jones (originally from Australia) designed the ever-popular muslin swaddling blankets after moving to the USA when she found that large breathable swaddling blankets were very difficult to find. A+A swaddling blankets are large enough to use not only for swaddling, but also for a nursing cover, tummy time blanket, burp cloth and stroller blanket. Since designing swaddling blankets Aden + Anais has also come out with sleeping bags, bibs, washcloths, towels, dream blankets (4 layer cotton muslin), and issie security blankets (satin edges).
I own a set of swaddling blankets (use them in the hospital after Brayden was born), 2 dream blankets, a cozy sleeping bag, and 2 issie security blankets (the new satin edge ones!). The thing I like the most about the swaddling blankets is that you can use them for so many different things and they make swaddling easy because of how large they are (47" x 47"). The dream blankets are ridiculously soft and don't make my warm baby sweat. I have a sleeping bag in the closet that I haven't been able to use yet because we are still swaddling at night, but it is essentially a dream blanket in sleeping bag form!
The issie security blankets are an adorably small version of a swaddle blanket with satin trimmed edges that give variation on texture for your baby to cuddle with at night and at naptime. The moment I opened the package of issies my 2 year old claimed one of these little blankies and slept with it all night long!
Aden + Anais cotton muslin comes in a variety of adorable prints and retail from $18.00- $45.00 USD and are sold in stores across canada and the USA.
