I may have a teeny tiny obsession with aden+anais. Willow has been wrapped in their swaddling blankets from birth because I was sure to pack a few in my hospital bag. Kaelyn cuddles up with not one, but two dream blankets every night – she thieved her big sisters, hehe – and her mattress is covered in an aden+anais crib sheet. And after bath time Willow is dried with her big soft aden+anais hooded towel. There is just something magical about muslin. It is durable and gentle. Soft and strong. Breathable and comfortable. Time-tested and pure. And once you have snuggled up with some there is no going back… nothing else will ever be soft enough or perfect enough for the precious little ones in your life.
I knew once Willow began breaking out of her swaddles that it would be time to move to the aden+anais sleeping bags. I absolutely love these sleeping bags because they are designed to be worn over pajamas creating a safe sleep environment for my Willow Jean with the elimination of loose blankets. There are two options available – Classic & Cozy. The classic collection is a single layer of muslin much like the swaddle blankets where as the cozy collection has four layers of muslin making it perfect for our chilly Ohio winter nights. Willow received a cozy sleeping bag in sugar plum to try out.
As I already mentioned the aden+anais cozy sleeping bags are safe because they eliminate loose blankets in the crib and are warm thanks to the four layers of super soft muslin. In fact they just get softer and softer with each wash which is something you can’t say about most fabrics. And even though the four layers of muslin will keep your little one warm it is also very breathable thanks to the open weave which helps reduce the risk of overheating. Oh and they are also available in three sizes so you can be sure to get the perfect fit. At the moment Willow is wearing the size small which fits from 23” to 28” long and 10 to 18 pounds or up to 6 months. She just turned 4 months old on December 18th and has plenty of room to grow.
Each night I put a long sleeve onesie on Willow and then her cozy sleeping bag which zips from top to bottom. Zipping from top to bottom keeps the zipper hardware away from her face and also makes diapering at night a breeze since the sleeping bag can remain on throughout the change.
Willow’s happy because she’s nice and cozy plus can still kick her feet around. Mama is happy because Willow is warm, safe, and sleeps well. And it’s all thanks to aden+anais! Be sure to visit the aden+anais website to see all the other awesome products they have available that will make your life, easier, safer, and more enjoyable too. And let me just say - I literally screamed with delight when I saw that there is now an aden+anais adult sized dream blanket available now. Every time I have wrote about aden+anais on my blog I mentioned how jealous I am of my kiddos and how I wish that there was an adult sized blanket and now there is…. now to get me one!
