For countless generations, mothers have swaddled and cared for their children with natural muslin. aden + anais continues this tradition with our classic muslin swaddle blanket. The breathable fabric helps reduce the risk of overheating, while the signature prints complement your unique style.
I originally bought a cheaper version of these muslin swaddle blanket thinking that I could save some money by not investing the full price. I did save around ten dollars but you definitely get what you pay for. The cheaper ones were scratchy fabric and way smaller making it much more difficult to swaddle effectively. After struggling with these for a little while I finally decided to invest in the pricier ones and, again, you get what you pay for. These ones are big enough that you can swaddle and still have enough slack that you can make it stay even when you move the baby or the baby moves around in his sleep.
They are also significantly softer. I can swaddle the baby in nothing but a diaper and it doesn’t scratch her skin or irritate it in any way. I don’t know if it’s just my opinion but I think these blankets get softer with every wash but they aren’t overly thick and fluffy so you don’t have to worry about the baby overheating. Then there is the added bonus of how cute they are. I like that they aren’t just plain or solid colored and have cute designs instead.
Unlike some other swaddling blankets on the market today, this muslin swaddle blanket has no velcro or clips on it to secure it. This means that you have to have some knowledge on how to swaddle. I didn’t know how to do it before I purchased these but I just looked up a how-to video on YouTube and mastered it in under thirty minutes. If you can’t seem to figure out how to swaddle no matter how much you try these may not be the ones for you.
I have tried both the expensive ones and the cheaper ones and believe me when I say that buying the more expensive ones will actually save you money in the long run. If you’re anything like me you will end up hating the cheap ones and investing anyways so it’s more logical to just do it right off the bat. I love this muslin swaddle blanket and I will use then for as many children as I have. My one year old still takes his to bed with him in the summer. This is one of my biggest recommendation to new parents.
