Aden + Anais swaddle review

Hi everyone. Today I am very happy to share with all of you my review on a product that I pretty much enjoy.

The Product:
Aden + Anais classic swaddles. (Print: for the birds)
Cost: $49.95 (Prices and availability may vary at the time of purchase)

Information on the Product:
This pack contains 4 muslin swaddle blankets
Dimensions: 47" x 47" each
Material: 100% cotton
Versatility: May be used as a nursing cover, baby blanket, stroller cover, car seat cover, changing pad cover, burping cloth, among other uses. It is very practical and machine washable.

As you all remember, I had already shared that since we are planning to have a baby next year, this gives me enough time to research and test/review baby and mommy products to see what best suits our family needs. This was a product I had been hearing about and reading about for quite a while now. I just had to try it for myself to see the results.

Likes: Somehow, even if I am not a big fan of pink, I love the grays and pinks combination. I love these patterns and I love the way they look. They are big enough to use them in so many different ways, and this comes in a 4 pack, which means I can choose which ones could be use for swaddling the baby, and which one you can keep (smiles) to cuddle with. They are 100% cotton, which is great considering that there are so many baby products that are polyester and polyester mixes. I love that with every wash, these adorable swaddle blankets become even softer. I don´t think these are something that the baby can outgrow, because even after the baby grows, it can be used for so many other things. With imagination and the need for comfy fabrics, the sky is the limit.

Dislikes: I tried looking for something that I didn´t like, but I just didn´t find anything at all. However, I did find that you have to be careful on how you use the swaddle. As any fabric that is porous or which threads are not as tight, you have to be careful not to get it caught by things that could pull it and mess it up leaving a hole on your precious swaddle.

Uses I thought we could use these for:

  • Nursing cover
  • Stroller cover
  • Swaddling blanket
  • Covering hot car seats (Not just baby car seats, but also the normal car seats)
  • Shade cloth on the car windows to protect the kids from the sun, specially during long trips
  • Rolled in a tube works as a pillow
  • Rolled in a tube could also help with back pain by setting it between your back and a chair
  • Security blanket
  • Roll and tummy time blanket for the baby
  • Tent for the kids during play-time

These are just a few options, but I am sure that the longer you have these, the more ideas can come to place. How do you use swaddling blankets?

Overall, these swaddles are great, adorable and cozy. There are many wonderful prints to choose from. They are airy, which means they are breathable so there is ventilation if you are using it as a nursing cover. The fabric is soft and gets softer as you keep on washing it, which I love and I am sure your little ones will love too. I can see how there are many ways to use them even as your little ones get older. You know how sometimes the car seats get really hot after they have been on the parking lot for a long time. These are perfect for laying them so your little ones don´t get burned. That would be like the perfect solution for that matter. For all of you that prefer organic products for the baby, Aden + Anais also carries a line made with certified organic cotton, which you might also enjoy. I know that for the moment, both "Happy Baby" and I are loving them. Even the hubby was very happy about this product.

I hope you enjoyed this review. And I hope that in the near future I can bring other Aden + Anais products to review for you guys. I feel that this is a brand and product that we would have around the house for many uses for a very long time.

Have a lovely day
