How to swaddle with an Aiden+Anais blanket

We are crazy about the Aiden + Anais swaddle blankets in our house! I made this video for a friend who asked about our swaddle technique and decided I should share it on here as well in case it could work for any of y'all too.

Ryan is one month old in this video and weighs just under 11lbs. These blankets with this swaddle method have been our go-to sleep helper since we brought him home from the hospital.

For a list of my other recommended products for the first month, click here and here.



  1. Mrs. Nelsen the teacher has returned! You make a good baby burrito.

  2. You need the Woombie. It's amazing and just zips right up. AND it can unzip from the bottom so if you have to change a diaper, you don't have to unswaddle their arms :)

    1. I'm so glad you reminded me about this! I used it last night and loved the zipper from the bottom for the middle of the night change. Definitely easy to use too! How long did you use this swaddle for? Our little guy is already almost too big for the size we have! Thanks, Kristy!

  3. ohmygoodness, the sweetest little baby burrito i ever did see! i loved this video (and i love your swaddling technique!!) ahhh, ryan is so tiny and new and beautiful!
    you look amazing, heather!
    i hope you're feeling great!

  4. I never tried that way since we stopped swaddling Blaire with a blanket around a month and stopped using a sleep sack at 8 weeks. Keeping it in mind for future little ones. I lose the A&A blankets now for traveling and playing on the floor.
