The Aden + Anais swaddling blankets are any registry must have. With swaddling blankets and sleep sacks taking the place of blankets the market place is flooded with so many options to what will work best for your little one. Considering all babies have a different preference of what makes them comfortable it may take a little bit of trial and error to see what works best for you. Lily didn’t mind being swaddled, however, she never wanted her arms swaddled, those she would do whatever she could to pull out and move around. Also, once she moved into her crib she wanted her legs to also be able to stretch out, so swaddling blankets were only used in the first few months for sleeping in her Rock ‘n Play.
The great thing with the right swaddling blankets though is that their use goes far beyond just swaddling. I use mine for her stroller to shield her from direct sun or chilly wind, they are plenty big to cover it as well as thin enough to breath and still let in plenty of light. They are also great for a light blanket when snuggling with your little one and keeping them warm without getting too warm.
I had heard that the Aden + Anais brand was a superior swaddle blanket to others and I had my doubts before getting them, I happened to find a great deal at TJ Maxx on a four pack of these swaddling blankets which made me feel no hesitation in purchasing these. I also happened to receive two other brands of comparable swaddling blankets for shower gifts which provided great comparisons. My doubts were put to rest about the Aden + Anais being the swaddle blanket to own, they definitely are.
