Aden + Anais, best known for its adorable muslin baby blankets, is now giving away 10 of its muslin “sleeping bags,” or wearable blankets. These are a safe way to keep your baby warm while sleeping without using a loose blanket, which poses a suffocation risk; avoiding them in cribs is an important part of reducing the risk of SIDS. The company is running this giveaway now because October is SIDS Awareness Month, when advocates work especially hard to increase the awareness of SIDS as well as the importance of safe sleep habits for babies. Among those advocates are the CJ Foundation for SIDS, a nonprofit which has provided millions of dollars for SIDS research initiatives, support service grants, public education, and awareness campaigns since 1994. In fact, a portion of the sales of all Aden + Anais sleeping bags go directly to the CJ Foundation.
To enter the giveaway, visit Aden + Anais on Facebook. (Scroll down a bit to find the latest post about the contest.) Good luck!

Baby girls have a lot of pink around them, and I’m not opposed to it. It’s a happy color, a feminine color, and cute as all get-out. I am in the thrilling position of waiting for a new baby niece to arrive this summer (yay!) and so pink little girl clothes are top-of-mind. I know a popular swaddle brand that also has pink on the brain: Aden + Anais. The founder is a mom of four little girls, and this week she announced a new limited-edition Hello Kitty collection.
And who doesn’t love Hello Kitty? Want a chance to win the entire collection for a little girl in your life? Post a comment here between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, April 10th, up to one comment a day. After that we’ll randomly choose one winner to receive this $160 prize, which includes three muslin swaddles, a hooded towel set, the $55 Dream blanket, and three bibs. Here’s where you can read the official rules. Goody luck!

You probably know Aden + Anais from the muslin swaddle blankets that are so very popular. They’re ubiquitous with “regular parents” but it also seems as if every time we interview a celebrity and ask them what products they can’t live without, they mention Aden + Anais swaddles. I guess famous people, aside from using the blankets to swaddle their baby to sleep and catch baby drool, can use them to shield their baby from photographers!
Well, Aden + Anais is branching out. First I have to mention that they have a yummy new line of crib sheets that are the same soft muslin as their blankets. We haven’t yet had one match up with one of the nursery pages we do in American Baby magazine, but I want it on record that I love them, even if they haven’t made it to our pages yet. They’re also now doing phthalate-free, paraben-free baby skin care products, which I’m using at home on my kids and which are slated to pop up in our September issue. It’s good (and very gentle) stuff.
And finally I want to introduce another new Aden + Anais star, specifically, the Serenity Star. The founder of Aden + Anais is one of my heros, because she balances her business with charity and with raising four lovely girls. (All in Brooklyn, where balancing anything is no joke, and I can say that because I live there too!) One of her parenting hurdles was tracking feedings in an easy way, while also keeping older siblings sleeping soundly. She conceived of a nightlight that could be a soothing thing in kid’s room, which also tells the time, temperature, and lets you log feedings digitally. Oh, it works as a sound machine too! (A more graceful one than the big fan we run in our place to drown out random city noises.)
Plus the fact that it can light up a soft red, white or blue seems very appropriate for this time of year! Want one? I’ve got one here, and Aden + Anais are willing to give out two more, which means three of you can win a Serenity Star to make life for you and your baby a little easier. It’s a $89.95 product, and if you’re not lucky enough to win one, you can buy one here. To win, just leave a comment below. You can post a comment once a day, through the end of Wednesday, July 11th. Click here for the official rules. Goody luck!
