Whenever discussing organic muslin blankets there is always one company that stands out strongly in my mind, and that would be none other than aden + anais. I feel as though they have paved the way and have done a fantastic job showing parents just how great muslin blankets are for babies. I have seen a significant increase in popularity when it comes to muslin blankets and I think parents are truly starting to understand how beneficial they can be. Being a mom for over eight years, I have undoubtedly purchased and used a large variety of blankets and I must say that the muslin swaddles are always top of the list. The luxurious and breathable fabric makes them ideal for any time of the year and they seem to be very resilient over time. One of the major benefits of muslin swaddles is that the thin and breathable fabric prevents your baby from overheating. No longer will you be up half the night (checking on baby) making sure they aren’t too hot.
Swaddling baby is incredibly simple with these blankets and my babies have always slept contently in them. They are also perfect for bringing with you when you are on the go. When baby is asleep in the car seat and you want to give them some privacy while out shopping, I love to drape the blanket over the front. These blankets are thin and somewhat transparent so you can still keep an eye on baby when the blanket is covering the front of the car seat. I exclusively nurse my babies and have always found that these are the best blankets to work with when trying to discreetly nurse and stay covered up. I spent way too much trouble with my first child covering up with big bulky blankets, which resulted in a fussy baby that could not comfortably nurse. The muslin swaddle is ideal for this situation ( being both light and comfortable) so neither mom nor baby will feel uncomfortable nursing in public. I also find that these blankets are perfect for the stroller and provide a cozy atmosphere for baby. There are so many ways you could utilize this blanket, it really is an all in one type deal! Additionally, they age well, wash well and come in so many different variety of colors and patterns. The one word that comes to mind is “perfect” and that is exactly what the aden + anais Muslin Swaddles are… I just couldn’t imagine life with baby and not having them!
