The Comfort of The Wrap (Giveaway) (CLOSED)

Swaddling your baby - it's one of the easiest ways to make a new baby feel safe and secure. It's not always easy to achieve, blankets come loose and the cries of a baby feeling small in a very big world begin. But after a few hundred times, you get it down pat - just about the time they don't need that tight comfort so much anymore. That's okay because you'll be able to use your new found expertise on your next baby... or teach a very tired and thankful friend.

Yes, you can swaddle your baby in just about any baby blanket, but for the ultimate in softness, you just can't beat Aden + Anais their swaddling blankets are made from soft, breathable muslin fabric for air flow and ultimate comfort. At Aden + Anais, you'll also find dreamy muslin blankets, perfect for keeping those little ones warm without overheating. Great muslin towel sets are also soft and comfy on sensitive little skin.

As one of our Grand Prizes, we have one (1) Winter Warmth blanket to give away to one lucky reader.

There are several ways to enter - here are the rules:

Back when my kids were babies we swaddled in regular recieving blankets. This would be wonderful for my grandchild due in January!

I like to use a fitted crib sheet first, then a heavier blanket. That way if the baby gets warm, you can remove the heavier blanky!

With my first baby we swaddled him with the traditional receiving blanket. I'd love to try one of these products for my new baby coming this August.

these look great- we generally did the reg baby blanket but on the next want to try this

J. Cannon said...

I am expecting my first grandchild in July and I would love to try this blanket.

Sara and Alex said...

I love the size of these blankets. We swaddles my daughter and found that too quickly she outgrew the blankets and while she still liked to be swaddled she would come unwrapped.

I used regular receiving blankets. I don't think there was anything else available at the time. Thanks for the chance.

I would love the baby blanket for my daughter.

EJW said...

What a great gift for my October baby!

kevnjacks said...

These look great! I tried the Kiddopotamus Swaddlers but that didn't hold my baby secure enough and they could always kick through. So I ended up using Swaddle Designs receiving blankets - they were big enough to get a good wrap. :)

Amy said...

I've just used regular receiving blankets. I would LOVE to use one of these with our baby due in less than two weeks! Thanks! tgag624@charter.net

Andrea said...

We used regular receiving blankets that did not work very well. Both my babies were under 4lbs. and they couldn't stay warm if they weren't swaddled. Thanks!

We are expecting our first child and plan on swaddling. We have seen the wonders it works when we have been camping with our friends.

My baby isn't here yet but I have read so much about swaddling. I plan on using this technique to soothe and comfort him/her! The Aden & Anais blankets look so soft and I love their designs.

Our little one has not yet arrived, so we haven't swaddled her yet, but we have been swaddling some stuffed animals as practice! It seems that swaddling is a bit of an art, and the blanket you use to begin with can make a really big difference!

Marianna said...

I swaddled in a very precious baby blanket - knitted by their great grandma especially for them!

When my child was young the only thing available for swaddling was a receiving blanket so that is what I used to swaddly with. Things have sure changed. I love what is available now.

I love Aden + Anais! With my first daughter we used regular receiving blankets because she never needed more than that. However, our second definitely needed a tighter wrap and we were fortunate enough to receive a Miracle Blanket as a gift and used that until she outgrew it.

Thanks!

I attempted to swaddle my daughter in regular receiving blankets nut she just would not have it. She always wiggled some body part loose a thousand times until I finally just gave up on swaddling! She didn't seem to mind :)

We swaddled the babes with Carters receiving blankets. They were the nicest and softest back then. I'd love to try these for the next baby.

Sheila R said...

I kept my son swaddled as long as I could. When he was a newborn he was constantly swaddled. I mainly used Carters blankets. I read a great book Happiest baby on the block by Dr Harvey Karp. Swaddling not only keeps them warm but it keeps them safer (less risk of SIDS than a lose blanket) and mimics being in the womb.

My best friend just had her first baby last month, and I swaddle him with love :)

Helen said...

My baby came home swaddled because my husband forgot to bring the baby clothes to the hospital.

Lentil said...

We've tried swaddling baby but she always gets her arms out. Wish we had some Aden & anais blankets!

Swaddling my twins was the only thing besides nursing that calms them :)
