Review ~ Aden + Anais Baby Swaddling Blankets & Wraps

Benefits of Swaddling

Most parents say that swaddling helps their babies get to sleep, stay asleep, and get comforted quickly, especially when they are newborns. A properly-swaddled baby feels warm and secure, and the wrap can help prevent a baby from throwing his arms up and startling himself, or even scratching his face.

For centuries, all over the world, mothers have preferred to swaddle their babies in muslin fabric. Now the comfort, safety and breathable weave of larger muslin swaddling clothes is available here in the United States from Aden + Anais.

Aden + Anais was formed by two mothers. Here is their story ~

We're Aussie mothers who moved from Australia to the United States in 1996. In preparation for the arrival of our children, Aden and Anais, we went in search of muslin wraps like the ones we have back home, a staple with Australian mothers. None of the wraps we found on the market in the US were the right size, they were too small to securely swaddle our babies. None of the materials the other wraps used were the same soft, breathable muslin cotton we were used to in Australia. So, we decided to make our own. Everywhere we went people would comment and ask us "where did you get the great wraps from?" Nurses in the hospital, pediatricians, obstetricians, lactation consultants, mothers in our baby groups and our friends all wanted our wraps for their own babies.

We also discovered that the only washcloths we could find were too harsh on our new babies' skin. We decided that muslin would be the ideal fabric to use on the delicate skin of our newborns at bath time, and so we also produced a line of soft cotton towels and muslin washcloths.

As a result aden + anais was established in 2004.

And that's the story of aden + anais so far. We hope you find aden + anais products as wonderful and useful as we do. We'd love to hear from you about your stories or suggestions.

Aden + Anais sells some beautiful muslin products for your precious babies. They include swaddling blankets, sleep wraps and even towels and washcloth sets.

I was sent a sweet little Blue Stars Muslin Sleeping bag to review. When I opened the shipping box, I was impressed right from the start with the package. It is a frosty type plastic bag with snaps. It totally shows off how cute the pattern is! I was also impressed with the soft 100% cotton material. The sleeping bags are apart of the new line of muslin products.

They are fully breathable, and the sleeping bags eliminate the need for crib blankets {which has been attributed to SIDS}. They range in size small to extra large.
