5th Birthday Celebration: Giveaway #5 Aden + Anais Bamboo Muslin Swaddles 3-pk

CLOSED  Winner: Comment #32, Andrea


Want to help your newborn transition from the womb to the world?  Next to babywearing, Aden + Anais Bamboo Muslin Swaddles are a new Mama's saving grace!  

Why swaddle?  Swaddling’s ability to soothe and calm babies has been known to mothers around the world for countless generations.  In 2002, the medical journal Pediatrics published a study that explained why babies who are swaddled sleep more peacefully by preventing spontaneous movements (called reflex motion) from waking them up continually during the night. The same year, the Journal of Applied Physiology wrote that swaddled infants stay in REM sleep (the most restorative, deepest sleep) longer than those who were not swaddled.  Thanks to the generous size of these versatile blankets (47” X 47”), they also
function as a stroller or nursing cover, changing pad cover, burp cloth, tummy time blanket and more. 

Giveaway #5 is a 3 pack of Aden + Anais Bamboo Muslin Swaddles in your choice of prints from our in-stock selection.  To enter, leave a comment below telling us what helped to soothe and comfort your newborn.  Good luck and thank you for sharing our 5th Birthday celebration with us! --Gina

  1. With Connor, every time he was fussy or upset we would take him outside. I don't know what it was about being outdoors, even 8 months later, it's the only thing that seems to calm him.

  12. I can't say what has worked as I am 36 weeks with my first, but I plan to breastfeed, swaddle, lots of skin to skin, and going for easy rides in the Atv as he's experienced throughout pregnancy.

  13. My first one I would have to stand with him to calm him and keep him in just a diaper. With my second, swaddling him up and holding him close.

  14. Holding him helped and when he slept, the Miracle Blanket.

  20. We swaddled and used a pacifier with my little guy! When he was 2 months I tried not swaddling him, but one night I watched him sleep and observed him doing his startle reflex in his sleep, so I started swaddling him again and then he slept through the night.
