As with previous babies that I have prepared for, I know that one of the top items to add to any list or registry are the swaddle blankets. When I was pregnant with Wyatt, I knew right away that I would stock up on the swaddle blankets from the Aden + Anais line of products. I had quite a collection, but as he got bigger and we had friends who had babies, I passed along my collection, not thinking that I would have the chance to prepare for another baby in our family. Well, you can guess that when we got the announcement that a new baby would be joining our family in the coming months, I got excited to once again prepare for the arrival of a new baby. Naturally, one of the first items I have had to stock up on are the Swaddles from one of my favorite companies, Aden + Anais. Since we still have time before we will even know whether the new member will be a boy or girl, I knew I could start to look at items that were neutral. When I was given the chance to review a pack of the Swaddles from the Aden + Anais collection, one collection caught my eyes right away. The pattern is the Jungle Jams from the Classic Swaddles collection! I adore the jungle animals in this collection, and with this print theme, I can go with the collection as a neutral design and go with it for either a boy or a girl. Then once we do find out what the sex of the baby will be, I can begin shopping for the gender specific swaddles to add to the collection!
Aside from the adorable prints, I have found that with the classic muslin swaddles, the breathable fabric is ideal, especially for the warmer weather we get here in Texas. I like that I can swaddle baby and keep baby comfortable, even in the warmer weather, all while keeping baby from overheating. One of the things that I had noticed about having the Aden + Anais Swaddles with Wyatt was, it seemed that after I would wash them each time, they would get softer, making them nice and cozy for both baby and mom to use! I also like that with the Aden + Anais Classic Swaddles, they are quite big, making it easy to swaddle baby, and the size is also a plus for nursing moms to use to cover up with! In all, I have found the Classic Swaddles from Aden + Anais to not only be a must have for when I prepare for a new baby, but also a must have for any parent preparing for a baby!
