I bought Aden + Anais swaddle wraps, when our twins were getting too big to swaddle in their receiving cellular blankets.
The Aden + Anais wraps are extra large, so we swaddled successfully until they were around 4.5-5 months old.
Some people manage to swaddle for much longer (I guess it depends on how wriggly or active the babies are in their sleep).
By the time the twins were six weeks old, we were wrecks.
We went on a baby calming course, called The Happiest Baby on the Block and learned about the 5s’s one of which was ‘swaddle’. As I recall, we went immediately from 2-3 hours of sleep a night to a whole 8 HOURS of sleep. It was amazing.
I have heard that multiples and/ or premature babies particularly benefit from swaddling. For us, I did enjoy those months of sleep.
The Aden + Anais wraps were an amazing bit of kit.
Their wraps are honestly top of my list as most recommended present for new parents.
It seems someone else thought so too, as you can see, newest royal, gorgeous Prince George caused the Sweet Bird Print wrap to sell out only hours after pictured swaddled in it here…
Little did I know this brand that I happened upon by accident, many years ago and have raved about ever since, has been growing in popularity with celebrities.
I’m not surprised though.
The wraps are 100% cotton, ever-so beautifully designed, and an organic range is available.
I owned the 3-pack of mela bamboo swaddles http://www.adenandanais.co.uk/shop/itemdisplay.aspx?ID=168&SKU=9201G
That gave me one per baby and a spare (which I often used to cover myself from the elements!).
After swaddling I used them as covers at bed or nap time, from the sun or wind on the babies legs in the pushchair, shades from the sun over the hood of the pushchair, and even as a scarf for myself !
They were also used to dry off the kids after a splash in the fountains. They are versatile and beautiful and I always had them in warmer months, in place of blankets, hanging on the back of the pushchair.
I am very happy to be able to offer you a competition to win some for yourselves, or as a very special gift
The superstar print has been VERY popular with celebrities. You can see it below on Juuls and Jamie Oliver’s baby
And here is Peaches Geldof, doing my scarf thing
Not only British celebrities, but also the likes of Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, January Jones, Charlize Theron, Heidi Klum, Matthew McConaughey and many, many more have been spotted with the stylish wraps.
Aden + Anais offer loads of different styles (and other similar products) at their site. I love the Diwali print swaddle pack too
