Aden + Anais Review & GIVEAWAY

If you have a new baby, swaddling is one of the most vital things you can do to make Bub feel happy and secure and to help her sleep better.  It stops the reflex motion from waking them up during sleep, and it mimics how they felt in the womb.

After having had 2 babies myself, I know just how important swaddling is.  Baby wraps would have to be on my top 5 list of 'must-have' items for a newborn.  So this week I have been very happy to be able to have a close look at the gorgeous Aden + Anais Muslin Swaddles.

The Aden + Anais Swaddles have loads of great features and benefits:
  • They are 100% cotton muslin.  I live in a very warm climate and you can still wrap your baby if you use muslin as its so breathable.  Muslin is also lovely and soft on Bub's skin.
  • Large 120x120cm size.  One of my pet hates is those wraps that are about 75x100cm.  Too small!  With this nice big size you can keep wrapping your baby as they get older and not have to buy new swaddles.
  • Aden + Anais have a lovely range of cute prints, I received the Jungle Jam Swaddle pack and I just love them.
  • You can use these for lots of other uses too.  As a light blanket, use in the car or pram, for nursing in public, and the list goes on.

Oh I would love to win this. I have a 26 day old who loves nothing more than being wrapped to sleep.
And yes, those small wraps are so annoying.

These are awesome and would make a perfect baby shower gift for either of my pregnant friends as I dont think we will be having any more (but I guess you never know lol). Blake love to be wrapped until he was about 9 months old.

i swaddled both my first 2, and will swaddle my next baby. I have no swaddle wraps as i got rid of all baby stuff after my 2nd child.

these are great to help bub to go sleep and sleep better, stop baby from scratching their face and the fabric these ones are made from would be perfect for the summer weather here in townsville

My baby girl Monica would love it be wrapped and get a good sleep and be snug and comfortable.

I would love to win these! Our first child was born in QLD in the middle of Summer, and needed to be swaddled so tightly to get a decent sleep. I'm now 32 weeks pregnant with #3 and would love these for when he/she arrives!

With baby 2 making her appearance next Tuesday (11/01/11) we are back to swaddling and we found it so affective on our first daughter as it really settled her in for her sleep. Being in QLD and now it is really summer weather (I am melting) the light design of Aden + Anais wraps would be perfect for our little princess.
