Newborns love to feel securely wrapped as though in mummy’s womb, which helps them to rest peacefully.
With the warmer months fast approaching, these Aden & Anais
wraps are just perfect for people searching for
something a little different to the usual plain muslin.
My favourite is the unisex Modern Mix pack in sage green and orange, which includes groovy camouflage print, caterpillars,
fish and retro rectangles. They would make a great gift in particular, for those not finding out the sex of their babies. Aden & Anais have created other cool pieces in their range, which include mod spots in a variety of colours.
Once baby is no longer swaddled, they make good-looking pram covers, burp cloths, blankets and cover-ups for nursing, and
will become increasingly softer the more they are washed. Their life far extends the original purpose for which they were
bought, expanding value for money. These wraps are huge – 120cm x 120cm.
Made by Aussie mums living in America who noticed the absence of large muslin wraps in the US baby market,
they’re available locally from Urban Baby and come in a pack of four for $49.95.
