I am a huge fan of aden + anais so I am thrilled to be featuring them again on my blog. I have had the opportunity to review many of their items and we love every single one. Every aden + anais item I have is wonderfully made, easy to wash, soft and beautiful and has stood the test of time!
I really like the story of how aden + anais began so I thought I would share their story with you (I got it straight off of their website of course)
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.
Our 100% natural cotton muslin swaddles are a must have because of their breathability, generous size, multiple uses including + stroller cover + burp cloth + nursing shield + summertime and tummy time blanket + change table cover + portable crib sheets, to name a few! And, the more you wash our swaddles, the softer they get. Known for our unique, contemporary designs our classic collections are absolute mummy musts.
