Daydreaming about the perfect gift…

Mother’s Day, my birthday (40!), my anniversary…they’re all coming up soon. And what do I want, besides an 8th day in the week strictly for relaxing? There’s one thing I covet above all others: some snuggly muslin from aden + anais.

I fell head over heels in love with aden + anais products when I got the bamboo swaddle blankets I put on my baby registry. I had heard such great things, and boy did they ever live up to the hype! They’re softer than soft and such a generous size for really good swaddling. We got a few of the Classic Muslin Swaddle Blankets, too, and they also became fast favorites.

You may be wondering what the big deal is about muslin. Here it is, from the experts themselves:

“Muslin is a finely-woven breathable fabric believed to have originated in Bangladesh during the Middle Ages. Its delicate yet durable weave makes the fabric stretchy and, therefore, ideal for swaddling, as the natural “give” allows the blanket to be tucked snuggly around a baby without being overly restrictive.

The lightweight muslin also permits air to circulate around the baby’s body, while still providing comfort and warmth without the worry that the baby may overheat in moderate weather. Cotton muslin is also a workhorse fabric, in that wraps woven from this natural fiber stands up to repeated washings only becoming softer — and better — with age.”

*Disclosure in accordance with FTC regulations: I received a complementary product to facilitate the following review.
*************************
You may have seen my recent review of the HALO® SleepSack Swaddle, which we are still using 2 months later because I love the peace of mind it brings at bedtime. Well, I’ve since been asked to provide a review of another HALO product: the new SwaddleChange™, designed to make diaper changing easier and less stressful for both babies and parents. The HALO® SwaddleChange™ is a soft and comfy cover for your changing pad that features an attached, adjustable swaddle wrap to help keep baby secure and little hands under control when changing diapers.
So, after all that, I just have one question: Is this weird?
