Monday Funday Giveaway: aden + anais easy swaddle

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Aden + anais swaddling wraps have been a long time favorite for both mamas and babies! Well get ready for the NEW easy way to swaddle your baby! The easy swaddle has many of the same features you already love about other aden + anais products, but with a new and improved design to simplify swaddling. The easy swaddle snaps together in 4 easy steps as shown in pictures below:

Sometimes you need the swaddle most when baby is super fussy and restless…which in turn makes it hard to swaddle them. The easy swaddle is quick, simple, and virtually foolproof. You are sure to get a nice, snug, secure swaddle each and every time with the easy swaddle.

Like other aden + anais swaddlers, the easy swaddle is made of 100% cotton muslin. The open weave helps a baby’s body be able to regulate his/her temperature in both hot and cold climates. It is super soft and actually becomes softer with washings.

Would you like to win an aden + anais easy swaddle? Then be sure to enter this week’s giveaway below. Winner will be announced on Monday, February 18. Winner will be notified via email and is asked to respond within 48 hours of receiving email in order to claim prize.

Good luck all!

This week was International Babywearing Week! There were fun events happening all week, but today’s MAIN EVENT was by far the highlight of the week! Check it out…

The vendors…just look at all the different carriers! ERGObaby carrier seem to be a favorite among this group with slings and wraps following in close behind.

This was a cute game. I guessed 125, although never did end up finding out the correct number…

Celebrating International Babywearing Week!

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Did you know it is International Babywearing Week? There are fun events happening all over the world in honor of International Babywearing Week. Many of the events are hosted by regional chapters of Babywearing International (BWI). What is Babywearering International? It is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support” (BWI, 2012). Basically they are an incredibly awesome resource for all things babywearing! My local BWI chapter is a group of highly dedicated mamas who are super passionate about spreadin’ their love of babywearing. They are an especially great resource for families who are newer to babywearing. They host informal monthly meetings that include demonstrations of how to use various carriers as well as provide a lending library of carriers available to members. The lending library is a really great way to sample different carriers before investing in your own. In addition to receiving wonderful babywearing information, attending meetings is also a great way to connect with other like-minded mamas!

If you love babywearing you will want to be sure to visit their website to see what events are happening near you this week to celebrate babywearing. You might even have the opportunity to join in a babywearing flashmob…what fun! I will definitely be attending THE MAIN EVENT in my local area happening on Satuday, October 13. I went last year and it was a total blast! I met tons of awesome babywearing families and saw some of the most beautiful wraps you can imagine. I am really looking forward to it this year….and of course I will take a few pictures to share with you all!

Happy Babywearing All!
