Confession: Before our daughter was born, my husband and I practiced swaddling on a baby doll the right way to wrap. It took some time, but we got it. Hey, I was never good at origami. I admit it. We discovered what we n
Now that's she's four...OK, she actually turns five on Friday but I refuse to admit it...those days are long gone. And I miss them. Wrapping her up in "burrito baby" style, all comfy and cozy and easy to carry.
Those lucky enough to still be in swaddle stage, you have two fantastic friends. Meet aden + anais. With a proper celeb following (think Sandra Bullock, Kourtney Kardashian, Jessica Alba, and Rachel Zoe), they have swaddling down to a science. The science of swaddle. Do they offer a degree in that anywhere?
Their 100% cotton muslin swaddling wraps are the ultimate in breathability and softness. The fabric's light, open weave allows a baby's body temperature to regulate itself naturally, so baby sweet doesn't overheat.

Family Ski Trip to Gunstock Mountain in New Hampshire

It's gentle on baby's skin and durable for everyday use. The more you wash these wraps, the softer they get--a blessing because, as we all know, babies mean a lot of laundry. They're also extra large, measuring 47' x 47', so that new and seasoned moms alike can swaddle babies of all sizes with ease.
When the swaddling is done before your little one isn't so little any more, don't think it's a wrap. These soft covers can also be used as burp cloths, nursing and stroller covers, portable crib sheets (genius!), stroller and car seat liners, tummy time blankets, change table covers, and more.
They come in so many beautiful designs, like sweet hearts, twinkle pink stars, and my favorite¦ Baby Cakes covered in sweet like confections (seen above) to cover your sweet baby.
So enjoy your Burrito Baby time. It goes fast. *sigh*
