I was first introduced to the book Swaddle Love last year when we had a swaddling demonstration from the Aden + Anais team during our grand opening. This book is filled with beautiful photos, instructions, illustrations and the history of swaddling. It is designed to be both a resource and a gift. Paired with an Aden + Anais swaddle, it makes a great gift for a first time mom or a seasoned mother who wants to learn more.
Another great product from Aden + Anais has nothing to do with swaddling. The new mum + bub Soothing Ointment is infused with pawpaw fruit. In Australia, this fruit has been well-known for decades because of its skin care benefits. Pawpaw fruit relieves, cleanses and protects skin when applied topically. This ointment is made in the USA and free of phytoestorgen, parabens, petroleum oils, phthalates, dioxane from sulfates, gluten, soy, petrochemicals , DEA and artificial colors.
I received a sample of this new ointment a few months ago, and it quickly became my go-to product. I love that it's safe for both me and my children. We put it on all our little scratches and scrapes. I even applied it to my cracked knuckles right before a brisk winter run to protect them from the elements. It has a light vanilla scent, which makes it great for chapped lips too. It is available in either a 3 or 6 oz size and a little goes a long way with this product. I've been nursing my little sample until the product arrived at our warehouse, so now I'm thrilled I can use it with reckless abandon!
