Just when you thought you had the baby burrito mastered, the swaddle unravels — once and for all.
Good-bye, wrap. Hello, sleep sack.
Make the transition to swaddle-free sleeping as easy as Sunday morning (before kids) with the latest from Aden + Anais. The beloved swaddle maker fashioned its famous cotton muslin into crib sheets.
Just like the company’s all-purpose blankets, the muslin bedding gets softer every time it’s washed. Elastic edging makes for a secure fit over the mattress, and a wide weave allows air to circulate, helping regulate baby’s temperature and keep him safe.
The sheets come in soft, solid colors (gray, pink, blue) and delicate patterns (owls, stars, dogs) that lull even the youngest resters into a deep sleep.
Just like a burrito but without the indigestion.
Available online at adenandanais.com, $30-$40.
