{Mommy's Little Miracle} Aden + Anais

*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary set of swaddles and a crib sheet for review in exchange for our honest thoughts and opinions*

Today Mommy's Little Miracle is featuring a fabulous a brand that I am absolutely in love with! Aden + Anais!

As a parent, I have become "addicted" to many different types of baby products including but not limited to strollers, cloth diapers, diaper bags, and swaddle blankets. Out of all of those "addictions", swaddle blankets have been a consistent weakness of mine. Aside from loving the adorable prints and color options of the swaddle blankets, I have become infatuated with the softness of the muslin fabric as well!
Although there are several brands of swaddles available on the market, I always tend to gravitate toward Aden + Anais. Aden + Anais offers three types of fabrics in their swaddle collections - Classic Muslin, Organic, and Bamboo. I have had the opportunity to try all three of them and love them all! In addition to swaddle blankets, Aden + Anais also carries multi layered muslin blankets called Cozy's and Dreams, adult sized blankets called Daydreams, bibs, crib sheets, changing pad covers, and much more!


Are you expecting in 2014? Did you just have your little bundle of joy? Know someone who's pregnant or trying to conceive? Then this event is for you! Alex of Mommy's Obsessions is expecting her second son this October and has created an event that is perfect for expectant mothers! Mommy's Little Miracle is a Pregnancy, Newborn/Early Infancy, and Postpartum event that will be featuring everything from maternity clothing to newborn essentials, to postpartum products you must have! We highly recommend that you bookmark the open giveaway page by clicking on the image below then adding it to your bookmarks bar! Over the next three weeks you will have the chance to enter to win some amazing prizes from items for YOU and things for your little one!



About Aden + Anais
(As from their website)

"After moving from her native Australia to the United States, the news in 2003 that Raegan was expecting her first baby triggered many mixed emotions. Although her family was half way around the world, Aussie motherhood traditions were always with her. On the top of her list were muslin wraps that Australian moms use to swaddle their babies.  It was to her surprise when she went looking for them in New York that they were nowhere to be found. After scouring stores across the U.S. for the soft, breathable wraps used by mothers everywhere in Australia, Raegan came up empty-handed. Every swaddle she found was too small, too thick and in her mind just not right to use to swaddle her new baby girl, Anais. Before she could stop herself, Raegan was taking a page from Plato's Republic - inventing by way of necessity - and became an Economist employee turned baby industry entrepreneur—a mom on a mission, you might say. And in July 2006, aden + anais® was born and can now be found in thousands of stores across 63 countries, worldwide today."

As you know, I am a huge fan of Aden + Anais and they were actually the inspiration behind Little Boy's Make Believe Nursery! Aden + Anais was generous enough to send me a package of their organic swaddle blankets and a crib sheet to review (which was what really inspired the entire nursery) and I couldn't wait to get them out of their boxes so I could feel the softness of the muslin!


What makes the Organic swaddles from Aden + Anais different from their classic swaddles is that they are GOTS certified and the organic cotton is grown in an environmentally and socially responsible way. The Organic Swaddles shown in this review are in their adorable "Wise Guys" pattern set which features feathers, owls, and a classic white. What drew me to this set was not only that they were organic, but that the beige in the owls would match our car seat perfectly and I knew that I had the perfect set to bring on the go with us. Whether I was using it to snuggle Little Boy or to drape over his car seat while he slept, the patterns would be absolutely perfect! 

The Organic Swaddles are generously sized, measuring 47X47 and are very breathable to help maintain your child's body temperature rather than overheating them. 



The Crib Sheet that I chose is the "Funny Argyle" from their Make Believe collection! Having never of tried a muslin crib sheet with Little Mister, I was especially excited to feel the softness of it and once I had, I was pretty jealous that I couldn't get myself a muslin crib sheet! 


The Classic Crib Sheets from Aden + Anais fit crib mattresses sized 52" X 28" X 8" which is the size of a standard American crib mattress. The fitted muslin crib sheet has a breathable open weave and keeps your little one warm in the winter and cool in the summer by regulating their body temperature rather than overheating them.  The best part of the muslin crib sheet is the more you wash it, the softer it becomes! In preparation for Little Boy I washed his crib sheet along with all of his other swaddles and I couldn't believe when it came out of the dryer even softer than when it came out of the box!

Needless to say, the Funny Argyle crib sheet made the perfect addition to the nursery and I cannot wait for Little Boy to curl up on once he transitions from basinet to crib (well, and once he's here!!).


To Purchase: Visit Aden + Anais and check out all of their gorgeous swaddles, crib sheets, and everything else they offer! 

To Win: Mommy's Obsessions and Aden + Anais want to give one lucky winner a set of Classic Muslin Swaddles!

  45. I loved hearing about how the A & A brand began! I loved the out of necessity quote, and I'm so glad that Raegan took the initiative to start this product in America, and share these lovely items with us, here. I only discovered these when my daughter started using them with her baby girl. Finally, on my 6th grandchild, a swaddle that worked! That didn't overheat or suffocate the poor baby! I would really like to feel a crib sheet like this!
