When LA was born it was mid-July and very hot so we didn’t really use swaddle blankets much because he would get really fussy in them (assumed he was hot). We have completely changed that with Baby Addy. Of course she was born in February and she seems to love being wrapped up. By far, one of my favorite baby items I’ve had the pleasure of using for her are the Muslin Swaddle Blankets from Aura Weavers! These blankets are the best!
Aura Weavers was founded by a woman who used to work in the corporate world but gave that up to spend time with her son. When her son was born, her mother brought her some muslin blankets from India and she quickly fell in love and realized they were unlike anything she was able to find here. She later got the idea to start her own business because of how much she (and some friends) loved the blankets and so her dream of being an entrepreneur and Aura Weavers began.
The muslin swaddle blankets that Aura Weavers offers are 100% cotton musllin and although not organic, Aura Weavers uses a pure and natural form of cotton that is very safe and comfortable for babies. The blankets are made of a breathable fabric that naturally regulates baby’s body temperature while keeping him/her cozy and warm. The blankets come in adorable prints and are available in two and three packs. Aura Weavers kindly sent us the Princess Dreams set for review. This set includes two blankets, one with adorable pink princess fairies and little red flowers, the other with colorful shapes. The blankets are also generous in size at 47″x47″.
The above picture is of Baby Addy when we were still in the hospital. When I received these blankets I immediately loved them so I washed them and packed them in my hospital bag for when Baby Addy was born. The hospital did tell me that it is no longer recommended that baby be swaddled with arms in because of SIDS so we always wrap Addy with her arms out. You can see her all wrapped up in her Princess Dreams blanket! We received so many compliments on these blankets while at the hospital. I think every nurse and every visitor that saw Addy wrapped in these blankets said something about how nice they are. I couldn’t agree with them more, they are my absolute favorite blankets of hers! I wish we had enough to use them exclusively! The blankets are incredibly soft and stretchy making it easy to get a good wrap or swaddle on baby. The blankets are incredibly easy to care for as well. We simply wash them with Addy’s clothes and dry on low heat and they still look perfect! We couldn’t be more thrilled with these blankets!
Nearly four weeks after Addy’s birth we are still using these blankets regularly. So far we’ve just used them to wrap Addy in, but I know there will come a day when I’ll need to use it as a nursing cover, a sun shade or a burp cloth. They are incredibly versatile and when we get more of these blankets I am sure I will use them in a variety of ways!
