there are few things i love more than a tiny baby all swaddled up in an aden + anais swaddle blanket. these things are the real deal. they make swaddling so easy and the originals get softer with every wash. the bamboo start out super soft which i LOVE. they're a little different but i love them both equally. the classic swaddles are a little more sturdy and not so buttery ultra-luxe soft but they hold up really well for things like a make-shift breast feeding cover. we used these for swaddling (obviously) but also as a burp cloth, security blanket, car seat carrier cover, really there are a million different uses.
AND. today i found a few of my favorite prints on SALE. a good sale.
right now you can get the aden + anais Classic Muslin Swaddle Blanket 4 Pack in For The Birds for $40 shipped (orig $49.95).
my other favorite girl print, the aden + anais Rayon From Bamboo Swaddle Blanket 3 Pack in Tranquility is also on sale for $36.88 shipped (orig $45).
if you have/are having a boy, the bamboo swaddles are also on sale in gender neutral print mela for $40.31 (orig $45).
i cannot even tell you how much i love these. they are THE perfect baby shower gift. i once had a friend tell me you should have at least 12 and i wondered if she was nuts but we had over 20 and we used them ALL. all the time. when newborns are spitting up all day and being swaddled for several naps a day, you'll see why you want more than 4 on hand.
