Now that we are home, settled, hospital-free and finally getting in the groove of things as life as a family of three, we have some go-tos and some never-leave-the-home-withouts. We always have an orange pacifier (the hospital-issued kind; they are amazing!), a just-in-case bottle, a second (and third) set of clothes (which have unfortunately come in handy more than once already) and an aden + anais muslin swaddle blanket. Yep, whenever Little Miss Anissa is in her carseat, you’ll see at least one beautiful muslin swaddle tucked in around her. Proof below:
aden + anais has long been one of the brands I watched and knew I loved even before trying them out. Back when Baby R was but a dream, I knew their muslin swaddle blankets were something I had to have when the time came- they were lightweight, beautiful and simple- I had to make them mine! Lucky for me, the folks over at aden + anais were sweet enough to send us For the Birds New Beginnings Set, and let me just go on the record and say that if you are in the market for a baby gift, you must consider this gift set! Let’s check it out together:
Here’s a detailed list of everything the new beginnings gift set comes with:
- two swaddles: 100% cotton muslin breathable blankets that are as versatile as they are beautiful-complete swaddling instructions inside
- one burpy bib®: a bib and burp cloth all in one to provide maximum coverage during feedings
- one musy mate™ lovey*: a cuddly muslin companion that puts a fun twist on traditional security blankets at bedtime and beyond
- Swaddle Love Book: an entertaining guide full of heartwarming humor that explores the history and techniques of swaddling
Separately, these goodies would add up to around $85, but the gift set is only $59.95- a total steal! And it’s not like there are frivolous items in the set- everything is so amazing (and needed!) Miss Anissa has been using everything in the set since birth. In the first picture below, we used the Burpy Bib while in the hospital to make sure Miss Messy Eater was staying clean (and warm! It was almost big enough to be a blanket for her!)
She also loves her musy mate lovey- how sweet are these two snuggle bunnies?
Like I said, we are just loving the entire set! Which of these items do you think would be your favorite?
