Manufacturer: Aden + Anais
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.
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.
Overall, if you're in the market for a towel and washcloth set, we think this set may meet your needs. Plus, its quality is notable, and we believe it will last the test of time. Use it during the newborn stage and beyond. We are confident it will be a welcoming, warm place for your baby after bath time.We are big fans of this company's products, including the Aden + Anais Classic Swaddle, Aden + Anais Burpy Bib, and Aden + Anais Classic Crib Sheet. They all make for a classic, top-notch gift.
