Aden & Anais Muslin Swaddle Blankets Review and Giveaway


Back in August when I was at BlogHer I ran into Military Mama and her baby.  He happened to have the coolest blanket and when I asked about them she said "Oh these are the Aden & Anais muslin swaddle blankets".  From that moment on they were burned into my brain as the coolest swaddles ever.  When I was about to have Oliver I was contacted by Aden & Anais and of course my burning brain asked about a review.  They were happy to oblige and now I am thrilled to tell you all about these beauties.

I am not much for copying and pasting from a website but I love the story of muslin and I really wanted to share it with you.  Just follow the link and learn about the 7,000 year old cloth.  It's pretty impressive.  For those of you who aren't sure how to swaddle Aden & Anais wants to help with that too.


I am always on the look out for items that are unique and precious.  I have given my children unique names so why would I dress them like all the other little boys I know?  I wouldn't.  They were the most amazing outfits and I pride myself on that.  Take a look at how sweet Ollie looks swaddled in his Aden & Anais blanket.                                         
I personally can attest for the fact that these blankets are not only head-turners but they also make great nursing covers while NIP.  I received the Little Man Swaddles and I couldn't be more impressed.  Who wouldn't love a blanket that gets softer the more you wash it?  I would like to offer one DSSM the chance to win their very own 4-pack of Original Swaddles worth $45 from the generous folks at Aden & Anais.  All you have to do is head over to their website and tell me which 4-pack you love the most.  I would like you to also like Aden & Anais on Facebook.  Feel free to tell them DSSM sent you!
