Growing up, my family nicknamed me Linus. I walked around everywhere with my blanket. It was stinky and ratty from being dragged across the playground, all through the house, and on every car trip. My blanket didn’t leave my side, except for the times my mom had to wrestle it out of my hands to clean it. I can’t remember how I gave up my blanket, but just the thought of it releases a calm throughout my body. Amazing how we can relate to our kids when we remember being one! My toddler was never into blankets. She hated to be covered, while my infant loves being covered and snuggled. We received many blankets as gifts when the girls were born, but nothing ever really impressed me as much as my infant’s aden + anais blanket she recently received.
I had heard of aden + anais, and even seen them in the baby shops, but I never thought they were any different than other blankets out there. I quickly changed my mind when I took the aden + anais dream blanket out of it’s box. There are soft blankets, and not so soft blankets, and then there is the dream blanket. Beyond soft, it is luxurious. Perfect to wrap your newborn bundle in, and great for toddlers to snuggle up with. This truly is a lifetime blanket, and nothing compares to it.
I didn’t really know what set this blanket apart, aside from how it felt. It turned out that the difference between the aden + anais dream blanket is the bamboo muslin breathable fabric that regulates body temperature. With each wash it becomes softer – if you are a cloth diapering mama, then you know that bamboo inserts may start off rough, but become much softer with each wash as the hot water breaks down the fibers.
The size of the dream blanket is perfect for kids of all ages. It is much bigger than any receiving blanket I own, and does not even compare in any other way. My infant loves being wrapped up in her aden + anais dream blanket, and just like her mama, this blanket goes everywhere with her!
