aden + anais Daydream Blanket

Oftentimes I find myself missing the sweet baby days, especially when I come across the saved clothes from when my girls were infants. The smell, the snuggle and the softness of those little clothes, tiny socks and comforting baby blankets. 

For many parents, aden + anais is one brand that will always represent those days with newborns. It’s this company that brought muslin wraps for swaddling, to homes in 63 countries. Sadly, it was one of those brands that I miss having around my house, now that my kids are older. 

Until now.

The aden+anais Daydream Blanket is the adult-sized version of the popular and much-loved Dream Blanket for babies. Fantastic news right? After all, why should wrapping yourself with this fine material end when children go through a growth spurt?

We got an aden + anais Daydream Blanket thanks to RockPretty, a wonderful choice for Canadian online shopping, from Calgary Alberta. Actually, our blanket came at the ideal time. It was the first day of spring break, the start of a week-long snowstorm and obviously a time of many lazy days at home.

If you haven’t yet seen or touched an aden + anais Daydream Blanket, it’s actually four layers of 100% cotton muslin. Just like the children’s blankets and swaddlers, it gets softer with every wash. That fact alone makes me love this fabric, since all our other blankets get rougher over time. 

Though it comes in other colours and deigns, mine is the Ocean Edge – a gorgeous blue-green colour that reminds me vacation. I have to admit, days are more enjoyable when you are relaxing in a blanket of this fabric and colour!

Since it’s a very generous 60″ x 72″ size, it can be used on a bed or as a throw blanket on the couch. Both options look so stylish! Keep in mind – though it is a large blanket, it’s lightweight and folds up very compact. 

In my house, this blanket is often found in the living room with the kids first thing in the morning, then with me in the evenings when I’m recovering relaxing from a long day. Then, the Daydream blanket is rotated through the rooms at night. ‘Dibs on the good blanket tonight!‘ is a common phrase around here. 

Cotton muslin is an excellent choice for a blanket since it’s so breathable. None of this too hot/too cold banter – the blanket keeps your temperature regulated just perfectly. This is great for use at night, especially during this time of year when the weather goes back and forth so much.

Then, in the summer when it’s so hot but I just cannot sleep without a blanket, I’ll be crushing on the aden + anais Daydream Blanket once again. I’ll be happy to have my summer and my blanket, without the on/off cycle all the time.

Now, Mother’s Day is coming up and this really would make an excellent gift. I know we all have a lot of blankets around the home, and one might not think to add another in the mix.

Yet, we all adore the aden + anais Daydream Blanket and it’s pretty much replaced many of the ones we had before. Also, I can’t help but think of all the money wasted on so many blankets that just weren’t as nice to use. 

For the quality, features {did I mention it gets softer with each wash!?}, for the beautiful colour and the incredibly comforting feeling it gives – now babies aren’t the only ones that can be wrapped in aden + anais.
