Swaddling the little one

This week with Alison's nappy stash finally sorted for her new arrival it was time to turn to swaddling wraps. Whilst we both have plenty of wraps from our first little boys there is something nice about using fresh new swaddling wraps for a new baby. Plus it seems our old wraps are all pilled, and a lot smaller than we remembered! have we forgotten how small babies are when they arrive?!?!
So we found ourselves in a pile of our beautiful Aden + Anais wraps comparing their size to our older wraps. I think we found a winner, Alison is keen to have a selection of these wraps for her little September baby.

Aden + Anais was formed by Australian mothers who moved to the United States and found the swaddling cloths made of the muslin fabric they wanted were too small for their babies, Aden and Anais.

Further, every swaddling blanket that was large enough was made with fabric other than the muslin cloth that is so readily available for swaddling a baby in Australia. So they began making their own, adding baby hooded towel designs and baby washcloths to their soft muslin creations.

Each of the wraps by Aden + Anais are 47 inches by 47 inches (120cm x 120cm), which makes them a perfect size for keeping any little Houdini gently wrapped. What we love about these wraps is that they come in such a large variety of colours and pack sizes which makes them not only useful, but affordable. It seems there is a colour for everyone, with anything from navy camo to soft pink stripes or solid white.
