The Skinny

Aden + Anais present another delightful product made of their signature 100% cotton muslin. This hooded towel and washcloth set are thick, soft, absorbent, and big, with the potential to last beyond the newborn stage. The washcloth may not work well for newborns as it is large and heavy when wet, but we think it will work fine with older babies and tots. Despite the washcloth size, we believe this set is a home run and could be a great addition to your baby's bath time routine.

Our Analysis and Test Results

Born and raised in Australia, Raegan Moya-Jones grew up with her native land's centuries-old practice of swaddling babies in cotton muslin blankets. Once she moved to the US and became a mother, she struggled to find muslin blankets to swaddle her baby and carry on this tradition. Thus, the idea for Aden + Anais was born. In 2006, the first muslin swaddle blanket was introduced, and since then, a full range of burpy bibs, blankets, sleeping bags, nursery bedding, clothing, and more have made an appearance.

We noticed that this towel is thick from hands-on testing, a perk we appreciate when wrapping up a little one after bath time. The towel is soft and big (32" x 32"), which is large enough to keep your baby warm and dry comfortably. The muslin outside features Aden + Anais signature designs, and the inside is terry cotton is absorbent. Both the towel and washcloth are machine-washable and easy to dry on a hook after bathing with its attached loop. They are available in many beautiful designs and colors.

Dislikes


The matching cotton muslin washcloth (12" x 12") is very absorbent and best for older babies because it can get too heavy when wet and too big to reach a baby's tiny creases and rolls. Also, the price is a factor consider. However, we think the set is worth the investment.
