Here it is! The long awaited Aden + Anais Review!
The wonderful people at Aden + Anais were so kind to send a package of four (47"x47") pre-washed, 100% cotton muslin swaddles. These are absolutly beautiful! All four have lovely colored stars. Yellow, Green, Orange, and Red. Many prints are available on there website. The first thing i noticed about these swaddles are how soft they are! They are very stretchy and breath very well.
With the lack of a baby available I used my daughters Cinderella baby doll. Seemed small enough, and about the size of a newborn. Following the directions on the back of the box, I folded the swaddle in half forming a triangle, placed baby doll in the center with head slightly above the fold. Then pulled the left side across the baby, the swaddle is very big so i tucked it a bit under the baby. Then folded the bottom up and pulled the right side over and wrapped it around baby. It was very snug. I think these are simply beautiful, creating a sence of stability and warmth. And these have multiple uses! I think when baby no longer does the swaddle thing you could use it as a blankie or sheet, or use it on the floor for tummy time. With the beautiful stars baby will be entertained with the bright colors.
I highly recomend these swaddles.
This is the front of the box. And I have to say that i love the design of the box. Very simple with lovely earthly tones.
The back of the box shows directions on how to wrap baby in the swaddle. As well as information on other uses.
Here are the swaddles folded so neatly right out of the box.
The swaddles layed out, look at the beautiful colors.
Here is the baby doll I used for this review.
Here is baby doll all wrapped up!
There is absolutly nothing I would change about these swaddles. They are soft, durable, and colorful!
This review is completly my opinion and experience with the swaddles. Nothing and nobody has swayed my opinions. No compensation was provided, only the box of 4 swaddles was provided for the purpose of this review. Please enjoy!
