I’m not sure where we first heard about it, but I’m sure glad we did.  I swear it has been the key to how well our 3 boys slept at night as infants.

What am I talking about?

Swaddling.  In case you haven’t heard, it’s back in vogue.  And, thank goodness it is!  It has saved my sanity as a mom and helped my babies sleep like they need.  As quoted from the aden + anais website:

In 2002, the medical journal Pediatrics published a study that explained why babies who are swaddled sleep more peacefully by preventing spontaneous movements (called reflex motion) from waking them up continually during the night. The same year, the Journal of Applied Physiology wrote that swaddled infants stay in REM sleep (the most restorative, deepest sleep) longer than those who were not. 


After spending quite a bit of money on cheaply made swaddling products with my first two babies, I began searching for quality swaddling blankets that would work well and wouldn’t fall apart after a couple months use.  After several friends recommended I try aden + anais with my next baby I hopped on their website and fell in love with their adorable designs and their rave reviews.

aden + anais sent me their adorable Prince Charming Swaddle from their Classic Muslin Collection to review.  Look at these adorable prints!

aden and anais swaddle blankets

aden + anais blankets are made of cotton muslin to help parents give baby that secure, in the womb feeling, without being overly restrictive.  Muslin is also a very lightweight, breathable fabric.  This keeps baby warm, but allows air to circulate around baby’s body to prevent overheating.

Though both the Husband and I have found that there is a greater learning curve with a swaddle blanket as opposed to a zip-up or velcro swaddle, we both love the versatility and look of the aden + anais swaddle blankets.  We keep one aden + anais blanket by Baby Brother’s bed for swaddling, one in his car seat to use as a blanket in the car, and one in my diaper bag to cover him when I’m wearing him in a baby carrier.  Told ya they were versatile. 😉

And here is my adorable little mister at 4 weeks in his aden + anais swaddle blanket.

aden + anais has several other products for both baby and parents.  Their new Easy Swaddle looks wonderful!


And I have several friends who absolutely adore their Dream Blankets.

You can purchase aden + anais swaddle blankets at many local retailers and online.

Finally, I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU!!! to aden + anais for sponsoring Operation Baby Shower Sponsor! aden + anais donated a Classic Muslin Collection 4-Pack swaddle blankets to a military family in need!  I would love for your help in thanking aden + anais for their participation in this event!  Please, help me say thank you by retweeting the message below or by posting a quick thank you on aden + anais’ Facebook page.

  1. A+A are the BEST swaddle blankets ever! They are stretchy enough to get a nice, tight swaddle, but light enough to keep baby comfy...and they make a great nursing cover too!
  2. Awww I LOVE that first shot! How sweet! I LOVE A+A!! And I have the crib sheet that matches the star swaddling blanket. I only have 4 blankets, I'd love more. They are so so comfy! I love their size too.
  3. I love a+a so much it's all I buy. In fact my little man is currently swaddled in the monkey's right now! How sweet is your little babe!! I'm so grateful companies like aden+anais are available to my family.
