aden+anais Review and Giveaway




When my boys were babies they LOVED to be swaddled. It was like magic. What wasn't magical was the incredibly tiny blankets I had to use to try and swaddle them in. My squirmy little babies always managed to wiggle their way out of them each and every time. The blankets I received at my baby showers were cute but not functional. They would shrink whenever I washed them.

aden+anais are austrailian muslin baby wraps. Here is the story of how they got started:

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.
These blankets are not just great for swaddling, they are perfect as a stroller blanket, a blanket for tummy time, a burp cloth, a blanket to cover up while nursing and much more! I love the blanket I received. It is sooooo soft and lightweight. My next baby will be so content being swaddled in their aden+anais blanket!
One winner will be receiving their own aden+anais blanket. To enter please visit the site and tell me which blanket you would want. Also for another entry please become a fan of aden+anais on Facebook here http://www.facebook.com/pages/aden-anais/100745935259?ref=ts.
