****************************************

When my babies were brand new, they absolutely loved being swaddled! And they weren't alone! Many babies love this feeling of warmth and security... especially in the early days! It has been said that this feeling reminds of of being in the womb, and studies have shown the being swaddled prevents the startle reflex from waking a sleeping baby. No matter the reason though, for many babies, it does work... which is why a good swaddling blanket is on the top of my list for baby must haves. And in my opinion, you can get no better than Aden + Anais!!


I was first introduced to this wonderful company back when I was still expecting my almost two year old. I saw these adorable blankets as I was out and about shopping and had heard other parents sharing their love as well. But I'll admit, I'm typically of the opinion of, 'If you can get a cheaper option, get the cheaper option.' And I felt the same way about swaddles... until I actually felt one that is! All it took was just one feel and I was a believer. There certainly are places to save when it comes to baby things, but Aden + Anais was worth the extra little bit.

So what makes them so great? Let's take a look:

  • They're breathable. This breathable muslin fabric provides just the right amount of warmth while still allowing plenty of breath-ability to keep little ones from being overheated!
  • They're large. Here's the thing about those cheaper swaddle blanket options- they're tiny! If you have a large baby, or a baby who likes to be swaddled for more than the first few weeks, they just won't work!! I remember with my son trying desperately to get a nice tight swaddle but finding there just wasn't enough blanket to make it work! These swaddles are the perfect size!
  • They're comfortable. Again, it just takes one feel to see why everyone loves these swaddles so much- they are unbelievably soft even during the first use and only continue to get softer with each additional wash. 
  • They're versatile. While they are of course perfect for swaddling, their uses go far beyond that. They are great for the stroller, burp cloth, tummy time blanket and its lightweight material and large size makes it great for use as a nursing cover as well.
  • They're adorable. Okay, okay... perhaps this shouldn't be a deciding factor...but it's true! There are so many adorable designs to choose from, you are sure to find one you love!!
As you can see, there are many reasons to love Aden + Anais swaddle blankets... and if you try them once, you'll never look back! You can learn more and see everything Aden + Anais have to offer at the links below:
