Here is the first of my Thursday Things What I Like posts’ – things I’ve loved as a mum or human and want to share with you. Unless otherwise stated, these posts aren’t sponsored & aren’t reviews in return for freebies, just things I want to let you know about.
First up are the lovely Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets which are sold on Baababy Baa. Priced at £17.95 they aren’t cheap but they are lovely quality and as I’m about to tell you, can be used for far more than swaddling.
I actually didn’t swaddle my two that much – what I found it useful for was as a breastfeeding cover-up, burp cloth, emergency change mat & a shade for the buggy – especially when we went to Florida when Osc was 6 months old & needed a bit of shade & peace & quiet from Mickey Mouse. I have the cow one (no longer sold) which is fab as it’s also unisex and HUGE. Honestly – I’ve never seen a muslin so big. I could probably swaddle myself in it! It is light though and comes in a cute bag to keep it in (though I always lose things like that – it just gets stuffed in my bag but doesn’t take up much room at all).
The most annoying thing is its name – I keep wanting to say Eden & Anais not Aden!
