What they say: 

“For generations parents have cared for babies with muslin. The aden + anais swaddle's generous size of 120cm x 120cm and 'natural give' of the material make swaddling easy. The breathable fabric helps reduce the risk of overheating, while the signature prints complement a mum's style. The aden + anais 100% cotton muslin swaddle is versatile and is used as pram-, nursing-, changing mat cover, burp cloth or tummy time blanket. Due to pre-wash it's soft and stays that way wash after wash. The aden + anais award-winning swaddle sets standards and makes parents' lives simpler.”

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

The Aden + Anais Swaddle is fantastic. I have used other swaddle blankets and have found this to be the best. Its large size allows my long baby to fit snug into it and allowing plenty of growing room. Following the instructions, I washed this product before using it and found it to be much softer following its first wash. The swaddle blanket is very easy to fold and transport around and can even be used as a general blanket to comfort my little one.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Aden + Anais Swaddle is very easy to use and very easy to transport around. My 3 month old son does not like being swaddled and despite using other products, this is the better one. However my son likes to spread out when asleep and feels restricted when swaddled. The product can be used as a blanket and the material is very lightweight and therefore this is why it’s an excellent product.

Would you choose this product to win?

This product is excellent. I think the material really helps it stand out from the rest because it’s really comfortable and lightweight, particularly for hot, summer nights.

What changes would you make to this product?

I'm not certain I would change anything about this product. I would happily purchase this swaddle for an expectant/new mum with no hesitations especially for spring/summer babies. The design of the swaddle is really appealing and nothing like I have seen before.

This was a lovely swaddle with such beautiful design. It helped me so much with my little boy as he tends to suffer a lot with startle reflex, thinking he is falling when drifting off to sleep. He will keep reaching his hands out and making himself panic so to be able to tuck him in all warm gave him the feeling of safety and he could drift of to sleep with no disturbances and stay asleep. It was the perfect size too, a lot of swaddles on the market are always a little short but this was perfect.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This made my life easier as it meant that my baby slept happily, warm and felt safe so he didn't get disturbed from his own reflex movements. This meant that mummy got to get on with sorting out my other 2 children without having to keep going back to assure my baby that he was OK and then settle him back down again so he would drift back of to sleep. He slept much more happier and this meant a happier baby when he woke up and not so grouchy from being tired still.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product as it was very eye catching. It has a beautiful design on it which is nice and bright and that was one of the first things I thought when it arrived. It is a lovely size too, some swaddles on the market are very expensive but can be very small in size and you can’t wrap baby up too well, but with this swaddle I could wrap my baby up and tuck it round him enough that his own movements wouldn't make the swaddle come loose and then disturb him sleeping.

What changes would you make to this product?

Honestly I can’t see anything that could be changed with this product.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend the swaddles to any of my friends or fellow mums as I've found its useability great in many situations and it is a great travel product too. It's meant I've had to carry much less in baby's changing bag as this can double up as a muslin/blanket and changing mat and is the perfect weight for a summer blanket.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Aden + Anais Swaddles makes life easier as it means I don't have to carry a blanket, muslin and changing mat with me - this does the job of all three. If there are spillages it is much easier to wash and dry than a blanket and a perfect weight of blanket for when we're out and about and it's warm. The size is much bigger than other muslins I have which means it has more usability.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product above all others as it is much more versatile. Although we no longer swaddle baby as such, it's been great as a summer blanket or a blanket to use for naps when I haven't had baby's sleeping bag with me. It's also a great sun cover because it's so big. I can use this as a muslin to wipe spillages etc but know that I can wash and dry quickly and easily every day.

What changes would you make to this product?

I'm not aware of any other designs, but it might be nice to have this in a darker colour too as the white may start to look grubby. If the swaddles came with a type of pocket to fold it into for travelling then it would take up even less space which would be great! Other than that I think this is a great product.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This swaddle cloth is very generous in size and so multi-functional I absolutely love it! It is easy to swaddle any baby in it and so breathable and light that the baby can nap in comfort without overheating. The design is attractive and there are many options rather than block 'boy' or 'girl' colours.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The size of this cloth is so great that it can be used for so many things other than just a swaddle cloth. It has been used as a tummy time mat, light blanket, shade cover on the pram, sick cleaner and a swaddle and has been perfect for all these things. It washes and dries really well and the design has stayed bright.

Would you choose this product to win?

This product stands out because it is so multifunctional and versatile. Muslin clothes are indispensable for a new parent and having one that is so large is a must. This one is distinctive, so you won't confuse it with someone else's if out with other mums and it really can be used for so much, not just a swaddle, so when baby is too big/wriggly for swaddling, it's not going to be redundant.

What changes would you make to this product?

I really can't think of anything that I would change about this product at all. I think people might be confused at the price tag, which seems quite a lot for a muslin, but having discovered all of the benefits to such a large cloth, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one.

Aden + Anais Swaddles are soft, lightweight and versatile...babies are expensive and have so many things you need to carry with you so anything which has multi-use gets the thumbs up from me. These are large, light, and breathable, so aside from making excellent swaddles, they are nice summer blankets, nursing covers, car seat covers, play mats, burp cloths...

How did this product make your life easier?     

My little girl has never been a great sleeper and whilst the swaddling did help a bit in the early weeks when the startle reflex used to wake her up but as she gets older, she likes being able to move around in her sleep so started doing it looser but she ended up kicking it off. The good thing about this product is its multi-use which means rather than carry three or four different items, I can just carry one.

Would you choose this product to win?

These are more expensive than others on the market but definitely worth it - the fact they are so versatile means they still have many uses after the swaddling phase is over so worth spending a little extra as they will last. I have had so many compliments on the design and there is such variety both gender neutral and specific. The product washes well, keeps its softness, shape and colour.

What changes would you make to this product?

I really don't think there is anything constructive that I can offer to improve the product... The product is lovely and I have even bought some for friends expecting so hope they like them as much as i do.
