We’ve been fans of aden + anais for some time, but when Max was a baby we discovered a new reason to love the brand that brought muslin baby blanks to the mainstream: the bamboo blend material. The Bamboo Swaddles were our absolute favorite out of an embarassingly large collection of swaddling blankets. Naturally, we were thrilled to learn aden + anais is now offering their Sleeping Bag in the silky material.
The “Bamboo” collection is actually made of “silky rayon from bamboo fiber muslin”. The result is a distinctly soft, airy and silky material that is perfect against baby’s skin. The material creates a lightweight sleeping bag that is ideal in summer and early fall. It’s designed to wear over pajamas, but a few nights when it was quite hot Max wore his Sleeping Bag with only a diaper underneath and he sleep like his sweet little, comfortable self.
I know the point of this post is to give you helpful information about the Bamboo Sleeping Bag, but there are some irresistible and totally irrelevant things to point out in this photo. Like the drool on the crib sheet. The classic baby bum in the air sleeping pose.
And, yes, while one primary purpose of the Sleeping Bag is to eliminate loose blankets in the crib, my babies each get a blanket to sleep with when they become more mobile and out of the high-risk age group for SIDS. In this picture you can see Max’s security blanket with him – my older two still sleep with theirs every night.
As you can see, the Sleeping Bag is generous in size. Max is wearing a size Large, intended for children 12 – 18 months and 22 – 28 pounds, so he’s squarely in the size range. It’s large enough to give him plenty of room to roll around all over his crib. It’s also big enough to get a bit twisted around his body as he flips and flops (see above).
Shop! The aden + anais Bamboo Sleeping Bag is available in five modern prints and four sizes. The size range from birth through 24 months and / or 36 pounds. The Bamboo Sleeping Bag is $37 and available at adenandanais.com.
