I think I'm the only person in the history of blogs who doesn't care for Aden + Anais swaddle blankets! I should clarify - they are very cute & super soft. I like that I can fold it up really small and put it in the diaper bag. But for swaddling use? Not so much. They never worked for use like this blanket did (& still does!):
At just over 9 weeks, we still swaddle H in this blanket. Swaddle Designs blankets are flannel & SUPER CUTE! Yes, even cuter than A+A. I received it as a gift at my shower and immediately wanted to buy more after H was born. They are a bit pricey at $25/blanket, but we use it every single night so it is more than worth it. Plus, I like that they are all sewn & made in the USA (Seattle!).
They also have cute tags with instructions on how to swaddle.
I wanted to write a quick post in case there are other parents out there who aren't having luck with the Aden + Anais blankets that everyone else seems to love!
