aden + anais

Learning to swaddle is an essential parenting technique that every parent must master if they ever expect to get a wink of sleep! Enter aden and anais, designer of muslin wraps for swaddling. I never really considered that what TYPE of blanket I was swaddling my precious bundle of joy in could make a difference...but why not?

Muslin has a light, open weave that allows air to flow seamlessly through the material. The soft natural fibers allow your baby's body temperature to adjust naturally, eliminating over-heating, but ensuring warmth and comfort. aden + anais wraps will allow you to safely swaddle your baby, giving you confidence that your baby will experience a peaceful and secure sleep.

And some other smart uses for them? Double it up and use it as an extra large burp cloth... Drape it over a stroller to shade your baby and protect against insects (while still allowing the fresh air IN)...Or shield you and your baby while nursing in public (especially great when it's warm out, allowing the cool breeze to come through).

I just received mine, and am just so amazed. The muslin wrap can be used to swaddle, or as a regular blanket. I love that it comes in many cute prints and is incredibly affordable! This item most definitely makes it to the top of my MUST HAVES list.

Congratulations aden + anais on a wonderful product. Thank you for sharing it with us.

This could be such a great thing for nursing for sure! My daughter would always sweat under any normal recieving blanket. And if it's large, that's a plus too! MUST order some of these as soon as I know #2 is on the way! Swaddling was key with our #1!
