Baby’s Best Blanket: 100% Cotton from aden + anais

100% Muslin Cotton Equals Super Softness

aden + anais Muslin Dream Blankets for babies have been at the top of the last three baby registries I’ve seen. I’m starting to think I should order them by the dozen to have them on hand. Both my niece and my nephew requested them, along with the aden + anais swaddles.

Parents prefer natural fabrics and products today. They lean away from man-made fibers which can tend to make a baby less comfortable or too warm.

Just as so many are preparing organic food for babies themselves to avoid preservatives. They’re using less disposable diapers to help the environment, choosing instead reusable ones like those by BumGenius (another favorite). Perhaps that is why this blanket has become so popular. It is not polyester.

The aden + anais blanket is made from super soft 100 percent muslin cotton. That makes the blanket breathable so baby won’t overheat in the warmer months, yet its 4 layered thickness provides warmth for cooler months. They are also a large size, measuring 47 inches by 47 inches. The natural fiber makes it less likely that the child will have a reaction to the fabric or develop a rash from it.

Choose Your Design

We’ve given a few as baby gifts now. The first one, over a year ago, was in the giraffe pattern. It’s still being used and still in great condition. They are very durable. It’s is adorable, cozy and seems to get softer over time. This purchase was even before Prince William’s baby made his first appearance with one too! Since then we’ve bought another with a matching crib sheet in the blue star pattern.

They make the sweetest selection of patterns. Our next one is the elephants hanging from stars. I think it may be my favorite, at least this week. There are many color and design options to choose from. The patterns are unique and charming.

We love the feel of the fabric, the fact that it is 100% cotton. Plus, the parents love the blanket as much as the babies do. They provide proof with photos of their adorable babies wrapped up in them or laying on them.

Now they even make one in adult sizes, a throw measuring 5 feet by 6 feet! I’ve put it on my personal wish list, not to mention several lists for my family. The larger size would be perfect for kids a little older too. Everyone–every age–loves a soft blanket.
