If you have seen our review of the serenity star you will know that we already love Aden & Anais. When you first mention this brand to most people the automatically think of swaddle blankets. This is because in the mummy world swaddle blankets are a big deal, especially Aden & Anais swaddles.
We were kindly sent some of these saddles to review. We were sent the Night Sky classic version. These are four gorgeous designs which include hot air balloons, owls, stars and spots. The colours are greys and blues which I love. There are loads of different designs so I'm sure there would be something to suit everyone's taste.
The swaddles are 100% natural cotton muslin and are a must have because of their breathability, generous size and multiple uses. The cool thing about theses swaddles is that the more you wash them, the softer they get. And as we all know babies tend to spit up and get things dirty very easily. They are extremely soft to start with but do get softer each and every time you wash them. They also wash really, really well and will last a long time.
The swaddles are very large... 47" x 47" (120cm x 120cm). This is great as they can be used for many different uses due to there amazing size. You can use them as tummy time blankets, changing mat covers, nursing covers, burp cloth, mattress sheet and many more. They are very breathable and help reduce the risk of overheating.
When Paige was a newborn she loved to be swaddled but Parker has never really liked it. With the multiple uses of these swaddles I didn't need to worry that they would go to waste just because he didn't like to be swaddled.
We have used these swaddles for many things and I always keep a spare one in my changing bag because they are so handy. We have mainly used them as blankets, sheets and burp cloths. They work amazingly well at all of the above.
I honestly think that every new mum needs to have them and they are definitely a must have item.
They retail at £44.95 which is a lot of money but for the quality and the amount of times they get used it is amazing value.
Have you used the Aden & Anais swaddles?
