This is a product I really wish I had known about when my son was a baby. The receiving blankets I had for him were decent, but they were not big enough to use for swaddling and the fabric quality was questionable. Seriously, don’t let yourself be fooled like I was by thinking that all swaddle blankets are created equally. They’re not! I remember hearing about the aden + anais Classic Muslin Swaddles and wondered what all the hype was about. Well now, after purchasing my first set for my daughter, I know!

Each swaddle is made out of 100% cotton muslin and they are pre-washed. The fabric is extremely soft and frequent washing does not compromise the quality. No need to worry about scratchy fabric that will pill after being washed just three times. Now a quick word about care. The company recommends washing your swaddle before your first use and machine washing in warm water with like colors. You can tumble dry the swaddles on low and should not iron or dry clean them.

These swaddles are made out fabric that is very breathable, which is important for reducing the risk of overheating. The fabric has an open weave, which allows for your baby to naturally regulate his or her body temperature in both hot and cold environments. This is especially handy if you live in a climate like Minnesota where there are subzero temperatures in the winter and high heat and humidity in the summer!

For those who are interested, there is even an option to purchase aden + anais swaddles that are made out of GOTS certified organic cotton thread. As expected, the organic swaddles are more expensive.

Now to my favorite part about the fabric! There are a number of cute and modern fabric patterns to choose from in many different colors schemes to match your baby’s style. They have so many options that I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites! There are even swaddles that have specially inspired patterns where a percentage of the profit goes directly to the specific cause. This is a great way to support causes you care about, while also getting a quality product for your baby!

Next, I want to bring to your attention the size of the swaddles. The aden + anais swaddles are amazingly versatile due to their 47” x 47” size. The first time I used them I remember thinking how big they were compared to the receiving blankets I had for my son. I have used these blankets to swaddle my daughter at night and have also used them to cover her stroller when it’s hot outside to shade her from the sun. The aden + anais website has a great video and a step-by-step guide on how to swaddle on their website. It was very helpful for me and I encourage you to check it out! These swaddles can even be used as a tummy time blanket or as a nursing cover for breastfeeding moms. The possibilities really are endless!

One final thing worth mentioning is that aden + anais has a few different options so that you can purchase the quantity that you’re interested in. You can purchase a single swaddle, a 2-pack, a 3-pack, or a 4-pack.

Overall, I highly recommend the aden + anais Classic Muslin Swaddles. I use them every single day and I think they are fabulous. Though they are more expensive than other options out there, you’ll love the high quality and versatility. This is definitely an item that should be on your list of must haves!
