Aden + Anais: Made for Baby Designed for You Muslin Swaddling Blankets Review

One of the first things new parents learn at the hospital is to swaddle. Swaddling has many benefits to include eliminating a startle reflex, provides comfort to a little one and giving a good night's sleep.  Swaddling in muslin, a natural cotton material, provides additional comfort while not overheating your baby.  Muslin is a finely woven, breathable fabric that is delicate yet durable.  It's also stretchy making it the perfect candidate for swaddling.  Because muslin is lightweight, it allows air to circulate the baby.

Aden + Anais has a nice collection of different products made of muslin:

The Review:

The Alpha Bit Swaddle four pack which also is 100% cotton muslin and is very soft and lightweight.  The extra large size allows for full proof swaddling.  Too often in my experiences, blankets have been too small to effectively swaddle or too large and fluffy to get a good swaddle completed.  The muslin allows for such ease in ensuring the folds stay in place without worrying about the baby getting too hot.  The description states the more you wash, the softer they get.  This is very true and it feels wonderful!  No irritation or roughness.

We also found the Swaddle blanket was perfect size to lie down to protect the carpet from messes and the baby from the harsh fibers.

I loved the fact that there is an option for organic and how soft and soothing they are.  I definitely will have to try the sleeping bags as I love the idea and need to have Aden + Anais make bigger ones as my two and six year olds will not keep blankets on.

I would recommend Aden + Anais.
