Speaking of changes, we think the Munchkin Secure Grip Changing Pad combined with a soft Aden and Anais Changing Pad Cover is the perfect diaper changing combination and such a cool registry gift. Considering your baby will be spending a lot of time on that pad, it’s worth getting one that’s safe and comfy. It even means you can secure it to a low dresser-top, and skip the need for a dedicated changing table, which is ideal especially if nursery space is at a premium.
We’re big fans of products that do double duty, and the Aden and Anais Serenity Star goes even farther, doubling as five different gadgets. It’s a temperature gauge for the nursery, a nightlight, even a white noise machine. And we especially love when baby registry items can grow with your kids, which is exactly what this handy gadget does, even if it becomes nothing more than a modern digital alarm clock.
Being new parents, my husband and I are new to the swaddle phenomenon. We have been trying all the blankets that we have to swaddle with. We found that the blankets that we got as a gift from are the best. They are very large and stay put when swaddled. Our daughter seems to be related to Houdini. We received the swaddle pod and are still trying to figure out how to use it, but we are definitely partial to the Aden and Anais. I also love these blankets, because they will make a great light blanket for the spring and summer when we are on walks in the carriage. I love the fabric, the cotton is so soft and gets softer as it is washed. The many different patterns are what caught my eye and the fabric is 100% cotton. Wish I had one of these to wrap myself in!
