One of the first brands I worked with on my blog was Aden + Anais. They contacted me to do a review and give away a long time ago. I still have the gorgeous bamboo swaddles I reviewed. They are one of things I just can’t part with. A lot of my other baby stuff has been donated or passed on to friends, but not the bamboo swaddles. I don’t know why. There is no sentimental attachment like the going home outfits I’ve kept. Those teeny tiny first proper clothes my kids wore.
But the swaddles are so soft and luxurious and pretty, I just can’t bear to part with them.
I love, love, LOVE Aden + Anais stuff. Check out their range on their website here. Perfect gifts for all the babies in your life. Babies need luxury too.
Aden + Anais contacted me again to review their gorgeous products. But as I no longer have children of baby age, I have no need for these lovely things. But I know plenty of people that do. I asked Aden + Anais to send me a package that I could pass on to St Kilda Mums.
They were happy to send this package.
When I saw the cozy plus™ sleeping bag – four layers of super soft muslin in gorgeous star print – I almost wanted to keep it and immediately have another baby… luckily I came to my senses, and drove over to St. Kilda Mums to drop it off. I’m sure the person it goes to will love it.
Aden + Anais products are so popular that even the Royal baby, future King George, was seen wrapped in a gorgeous bird print swaddle from the range. Which caused so many people to buy it, that the servers crashed and the swaddle sold out!
Celebrity babies all over the world have been snapped swaddled in Aden + Anais. So, you’d be surprised to know that the range is reasonably priced. It actually is. It’s not bargain basement cheap like the swaddles you’ll find in a department store. I had some of those and after a couple of washes they feel like paper and they are really small. Aden + Anais swaddles are pure muslin and get softer with each wash and are large and useful and beautiful.
Thank you Aden + Anais for your generous gift to a needy mum. It’s great to know that out there a baby born in much less fortunate circumstances than the future King of England, is swaddled in the same cloth.
