The aden + anais 100-percent cotton muslin swaddle is ideal for both new moms and babies alike. These stylish swaddle blankets are gentle enough to be against baby's delicate skin, yet versatile and easy for parents to use.
The natural open weave of aden + anais muslin swaddles allows for better air circulation to help keep baby comfortable. The soft, breathable fabric helps reduce the risk of overheating during the summer months and keeps baby warm in the cooler months.
Not only are these aden + anais muslin blankets great for swaddling, but they can also be used as a burp cloth, security blanket, and portable crib sheet. And when you are out and about, you can use the lightweight wrap as a changing table cover, stroller canopy, nursing cover, and car seat liner.
According to Pediatrics journal, "swaddled infants arouse less and sleep longer. ... improved neuromuscular development, less physiologic distress, better motor organization, and more self-regulatory ability when swaddled. When compared with massage, excessively crying infants cried less when swaddled, and swaddling can soothe pain in infants...It can be helpful in regulating temperature but can also cause hyperthermia when misapplied."
While these are more expensive than others on the market, they are well worth the price. They are thinner than other swaddlers, but the light breathable cotton keeps your baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If it is really cold, you can also double up on the cloth because they are so thin.
They are also very versatile. You can take then anywhere and they can serve as blankets, nursing cover, burp cloth, etc.
NOTE: Because of the delicate cotton material, we recommend that you air dry them for best results. Plus, they are so thin, they dry in a quickie anyhow.
