aden + anais Review and Giveaway

aden + anais , established in 2004, "was formed by two Australian mothers who moved to the United States and found that the swaddling cloths made of the muslin fabric they wanted
were too small for their babies, aden and anais. Further, every swaddling blanket that was large enough was made with fabric other than the muslin cloth
that is so readily available for swaddling a baby in Australia. So they began making their own, adding baby hooded towel designs and baby
washcloths to their soft muslin creations. Before long, they were being asked, "where did you get that great swaddling cloth?" by doctors,
friends and mothers out and about who all wanted these muslin swaddling baby items for their own babies. Hence, the company "aden + anais" was born."

Muslin is a unique cotton fabric first introduced into England in the late 17th century. 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.

aden + anais have developed a whole line of Muslin linens for your baby/Toddler
this includes The Popular Muslin Swaddling Blankets, Dream Blankets, Washcloths, Hooded Bath Towels, and Sleep Bags.

Muslin Sleeping Bags

With October being SIDS awareness Month, The Muslin Sleeping Bag is a wonderful item for parents to use. This single layer of waffled cotton makes for a wonderful and safe sleep bag for your baby. These quilted sleeping bags provide a layer of cushioned warmth produced from only the most natural of fibers allows baby's and toddlers to feel warm without overheating. Also at aden + anais:

Hooded Towels and Muslin Washcloths

aden + anais hooded towels and washcloths are made from the finest 100% Muslin cotton to produce the softest bath accessory for your baby. With a waffled effect and cushion like feel aden + anais hooded towels and washcloths are super soft and delicate for newborn skin.

Two lucky readers are going to win their very own Mod Muslin 4 pack Swaddling Blankets.
These Delicate Cotton Wraps are light yet extremely durable and can be machine washed and tumbled dry. Best of all, the more you wash aden + anais muslin wraps, the softer they get, as the air from drying creates a unique waffled effect in the fabric.

aden + anais was super nice and sent me the Pink and Brown 4 pack of Muslin Swaddling Blankets for Emma to Review. aden + anais Swaddling Blankets are truly the best swaddling blanket I have ever had. I have had swaddled all four of my children and all four loved it and thrived on being wrapped up like a little cocoon. aden + anais is truly the best. The first wow came when I opened up the first blanket. The size of aden + anais swaddling blankets is like no other swaddling blanket I have ever used. At 47 x 47 inches these are big enough for my soon to be One year old baby. Emma loves her aden+ anais swaddling blankets and snuggles with them when its bottle time, nap time and even outside time when we are just sitting on the porch. I do not swaddle her anymore but under Mom Terms she is a blanket baby, and loves her blankets a lot. The other special feature of this blanket is the muslin. It is light weight, yet very warm and cozy, and totally breathable. They are a must have for any mom.
aden + anais swaddling blankets have become indispensable in my house and are great for other purposes beyond swaddling. You can use them as a light weight blanket, nursing shield, burp cloth, playpen cover and much much more.

Information on Swaddling:
{From aden+anais}

Why swaddle?
This age old technique is used to make your baby feel safe and secure:

* Swaddling helps to make your baby feel secure and comfortable, as it is designed to imitate the security of the enclosed surroundings they experienced in the womb
* Swaddling helps your baby sleep on their back, the pediatrician recommended sleeping position
* Swaddling helps your baby stay asleep by reducing sudden arm and leg movements (startle reflexes)
* Swaddling keeps your baby's face uncovered
* Swaddling prevents your baby moving around the crib and getting into dangerous or uncomfortable positions
