They say the newborn period is the “fourth trimester,” and for good reason—coming into this world can be a rough transition, and babies often pine for the good old days of warm, cozy comfort inside the womb. When baby can’t seem to settle down at night, swaddling can be just the thing: It tightly snuggles baby, helping to soothe, prevent startle-reflex and ultimately get baby to sleep longer and sounder. Aden + anais has bundled up all those benefits in their muslin swaddle blanket—and topped it off with swoon-worthy prints.


  • 100 percent cotton muslin means these blankets are super soft—and will keep getting softer (but stay sturdy) after every machine wash. The fabric is highly breathable and keeps baby warm but not overheated
  • Thanks to this blanket’s large size and open weave, it can serve a whole bunch of purposes: Other than swaddling, try it out as a burp cloth, nursing cover, tummy time blanket, stroller cover and more
  • These blankets are as cute as they are versatile: They come in a near-endless array of adorable patterns and colors (trust us, it’ll be hard to choose)


A multi-use swaddle that surrounds baby with softness and comfort. No wonder it has a cult following.

Price: $35
