Here's the deal mamas, even when I knew absolutely nothing about baby gear, baby needs, or baby anything (AKA when I was pregnant with my first babe), I still knew that Aden + Anais was going to be a staple for us. They were the first brand that I knew about when I was first expecting, and, actually, their classic swaddle was the first purchase I made for our babe, and I've never looked back.
Classic Dream Blanket- Metallic Gold Deco Dandelion
There's a reason why A+A is basically a household name for parents, and here's a few of the reasons why our fam loves them!
Strictly from a mama's point of view, I absolutely love these swaddles for the patterns-- they are so perfect for mamas who don't want to deal with gender specific styles or colors, or if you're just living for the gender-neutrals, then you'll always be able to find a blankie for your babes. Their Serengeti 3-pack is almost too adorable to handle.
Something that I heard alllll the time before buying any of Aden + Anais' products is that they get better with age. But seriously, they do. Wash them and wash them and they get softer and softer and you can use them forever. The first ones I ever bought were still perfectly soft for our little girl when we had her last year. If you're turning your nose up thinking it's just another blanket, then think again, mama.
If you're wanting to invest in something that will expand well into their big kid years, grab their Dream Blanket--it costs more than their swaddles, but it is so worth it! You'll use it to tuck your littles in for years.
Quality across the board is something that I love about Aden + Anais, and it's one of the reasons I continue to buy their products for my littles and our friends with babes. I know that whatever I buy, it'll be cute, used, loved, and used again. From their bibs (perfect for drooly babes like mine) to their burp rags (perfect for any mama who likes the shirt she's wearing), you'll be able to get the same softness and color as their blankies. They also never go out of style. Babes will always need swaddles. Babes will always need bibs. They're easy, no-brainer products that are made to last and look adorable.
