Aden & Anais Swaddle Blankets
We adore these Aden & Anais 100% cotton luxury muslins.
They’re not to be confused with muslin burping (and every other bodily function) cloths which are much, much smaller and won’t allow you to swaddle your baby (you will need a handful of those too and Aden & Anais do “Musy” squares).
The breathable muslin weave will keep your baby cosy when swaddled, but prevent them from overheating. They come in a variety of beautiful patterns, including a brand new adorable Disney range.
We used these religiously when our babies were newborns and have now found how versatile they are – we peg them onto the buggy as a bit of a sun shade, put them on the changing mat (to avoid a naked-skin-on-cold-plastic scenario), use them as cot sheets and also lay them on the floor when our babies need a bit of time on their tummy.
The swaddle blanket size (120 x 120 cm) is a must and it is a good idea to have more than one as new babies have a habit of pooing on absolutely everything. If you don’t think you’ll use all four, then give two as a new baby gift to a friend, they’ll thank you forever.
