From Bump To Baby: Aden + Anais {Review}

Disclosure Review

Logo w: color

As a soon-to-be new mom, there are many things that I am absolutely TERRIFIED about. I have discovered that as my pregnancy progresses… so does my anxieties and fears about what is to come. One of the biggest worries that I have is about Brooklynn’s sleep schedule. I have heard absolute NIGHTMARE accounts of babies that simply will not go to sleep. This leads to a fussier baby, even more exhausted parents, and the list goes on and on.

When I began preparing for the From Bump to Baby event here at Wee Share, there were many things I kept in mind. Practicality of the products that I present to all of you is #1 on my list. I wanted the companies and products that I featured to help ease my anxieties about becoming a mom — AND to be helpful for all of you to learn about, too!

One company that has absolutely blown me away with their helpful information and practical {and not to mention, cute!!} products is aden + anais. This company sells products that make life easier for mom, dad, and baby!

Here is a little bit of information about this company (as taken from the aden + anais website):

As a young woman growing up in Australia, our founder Raegan Moya-Jones was introduced to many traditional practices of motherhood. One of them in particular– swaddling babies in generously sized, gentle muslin sheets– amazed her. Even the fussiest babies seemed to sleep more peacefully in muslin. Despite the hot days and the cold nights, muslin swaddles helped keep babies comfortable. And, most importantly, the very act of swaddling seemed to build a bond between mothers and their babies.

When she moved to the U.S. and started her own family, Raegan couldn’t find any swaddles like the ones she remembered from home. The only swaddles available were too small. Or made of much-too-thick flannel. Or, simply, unattractive.

And so, aden + anais was born. And within months of hitting the market, aden + anais swaddles starting popping up in magazines, on blogs for new mothers, in virtually every celebrity gift registry, and in stores around the country.

Today, aden + anais, has brought the legacy of muslin together with fashion forward design to create a line of products that are as stylish as they are useful; and as simple as they are beautiful. We believe in muslin– the way it looks, the way it feels, the way it works– to improve the lives of babies and their mothers no matter who they are or where they live.

The proof is in every product we make.

Diwali Bamboo Swaddles
Bamboo Muslin Collection – 3 pack
$45.00

Three 47” x 47” (120cm x 120cm) swaddles, rayon from bamboo fiber muslin

  • Generous Size: makes swaddling easy
  • Luxuriously Soft: gets softer with every wash
  • Versatile: works as a stroller or nursing cover, changing pad cover, burp cloth, tummy time blanket and more

The bamboo muslin swaddling blankets are SO SOFT. I was absolutely amazed at how wonderful they felt when I touched them. After reading up on the bamboo fiber muslin swaddling blankets at aden + anais, I only fell in love with them more. Did you know, they only get SOFTER the more that you use and wash them?? It’s almost hard to believe because they are already SO SOFT!

Prior to this event, I had heard of the positive effects that swaddling has on babies. I heard stories about how well {most} babies respond to being swaddled. However — this was still a complete FOREIGN concept to me. As someone who is about to have my first child, a lot of questions are raised concerning swaddling: how does swaddling work, why does swaddling work, and how do you swaddle a baby? 

Lucky for me {and for anyone with similar concerns}, the aden + anais website is fantastically helpful in this area. Here are some links to some additional information regarding swaddling:
