New moms now have more baby blankets to choose from than babies have reason to cry. But the cool, mom-owned label, Lulujo that’s new to the US from Canada, has really caught my eye with gorgeous, affordable muslin baby blankets and other gift-worthy swaddling options. My favorites: a bold, double-layer muslin swaddler that I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to live without when new baby arrives, and a luxurious turkish towel I can use for almost anything. I know, I really shouldn’t be this excited about baby blankets. But I am. Related: Celebrity-designed baby blankets in a beautiful collaboration Like the original swaddlers...Read More
Muslin blankets are among my most beloved baby items. They’re so perfect for swaddling, shading and about a thousand other baby-friendly things, too–as all of us have been preaching for years. When my kids were babies my favorite muslin blanket in the world was the soft, generously cut one from CMP fave Aden + Anais. Though I don’t have anyone to swaddle these days, I’m still excited about the newest prints from their partnership with another CMP fave whose ramped up their cool partnerships lately, J. Crew. Designed by the retailer’s creative director (and cameo actor on Girls this season) Jenna Lyons, this new and exclusive set...Read More
When my oldest was a baby, my “portable changing pad” was a burp cloth spread out on a bathroom counter. Nothing wrong with that, but looking back I would have prefered one of aden + anais’s portable diaper changing pads back then. We’ve been big fans of aden + anais for ages (they just keep making so many great things!) and this changing pad is no disappointment. It comes in eight of their modern, cool designs — I love “up, up and away” and “liam the brave” — and they’re made from a pre-washed cotton muslin. And they are so soft. The pads are...Read More
The aden + anais swaddlers have been a staple in my household since my second baby was born, but now that my youngest is almost two-years old, we’ve outgrown them a bit. So imagine how thrilled I was to learn that they’ve recently launched crib sheets. The new aden + anais crib sheets are made from the same super soft muslin that their blankets are known for, and really, I couldn’t think of a better material for a baby to sleep on. It’s cool during the summer months, but still cozy in the winter. And if they wash as...Read More
If there’s one baby product that’s made a name for itself in the last few years, it’s the cotton muslin swaddling blanket. Yes, we’ve been tracking down the best ones for quite a few years now, but they’ve never been as beautiful and adorable as they are now. The gorgeous new muslin swaddlers from Little Giraffe are so pretty, they’re kind of making me want another baby to swaddle. (Let’s keep that under wraps, though. Pun intended.) They’re the same big swaddling blanket size we’re used to, but I’m really in love with some of the prints. Particularly the...Read More
Like so many moms, I’m obsessed with those feather-soft muslin swaddle blankets from the beloved aden + anais line. I use the beautifully printed blankies for everything from hiding my nursing newborn to protecting him from the sun and, oh yeah, swaddling him. Now their new collection of bibs has me pumped for feeding time. The new aden + anais snap bibs are made with the same 100% cotton muslin in three super-absorbent layers, as their uber-popular swaddle blankets. Which makes perfect sense, since one of the other uses I have found for the blankets is as a napkin...Read More
We get outrageously excited when see some of our favorite small brands hit the big time, and it’s no surprise that our perennial top pick Aden + Anais has done just that. They’ve created a line of their awesome muslin baby blankets and swaddlers for Little 77, the new baby line by the popular clothing store American Eagle. Their lovely muslin swaddling blankets and burpy bibs are a staple in my own baby warddrobe – the light, soft fabric and subtle designs are the perfect for any taste and any season. You’ll find the new exclusive Little 77 collection is similar to...Read More
Ever since I was introduced to the Aden & Anais muslin swaddlers, I’ve anxiously awaited (and subsequently been blown away by) their new products, most recently the baby sleep sacks. So I’m not surprised that I was instantly smitten with their new genius Burpy bibs. Crafted from their signature muslin in a slew of cool, exclusive patterns, these burp cloths are thick and soft which is a must for drooly, spitty baby faces, but even better, the cloths are shaped to fit easily on your shoulder. That means they’ll actually catch the drool and spit instead of your shirt. But if...Read More
