When Jasper was born I was introduced to aden+anais swaddles and burpy bibs, we still use the swaddles for Jasper to wear his babies and as blankets around the house so I was thrilled to hear they have released adult sized Daydream blankets.

I received an ocean edge classic daydream blanket and promptly fell ill, so I got it out and snuggled up on the lounge. It is a luxurious 153cm x 183cm and made from 100% cotton muslin which, in sick-mumma-on-the-couch terms means it was big enough to cover me, keeping me warm and comfortable with it’s gorgeous softness.

Loved the simple yet effective packaging

Four layers of muslin make it cozy and so very soft. Washing just makes it softer and if it holds up like the swaddles have, it will still be soft and lovely three years down the track. Something I really love is that it is just heavy enough without being too much. I can’t stand blankets that are light – a weighted blanket is something I need for whatever reason, so this is perfect.

The problem with things that are this good is that it’s hard to keep it a secret. I will often find Jasper snuggled up in it on the couch or in book corner reading. Thankfully, it’s big enough for me to slip in and snuggle with him, assuming he’s in a willing mood.

While this would be a great new mum gift idea, it is on the costly side at $136.36 for the muslin style or $172.73 for the bamboo fibre muslin blanket. But, if you’re in the market for some luxury, you won’t be disappointed. I love my daydream blanket, aden+anais make good quality goods and I look forward to further testing it as the cooler months approach.

    I have a Daydream blanket in Ocean Edge and I snuggled into it last night (it’s cold in Orange right as you know).I love it so much.

      Aren’t they awesome? I can imagine how cold it is in Orange right now! My kids barely wear jumpers here while everyone else is rugged up and I have to continuously explain that they have acclimatised to winter in the Central West and simply aren’t cold!

    Thank you!! I didn’t know Aden & Anais made blankets for ‘big people’ too!! We also use Aden & Anais wraps and sleeping bags with both of our boys. They wash up so well, we have some wraps which are now 2 + years old and they are still so soft and lovely. Our two year old just loves his ‘blankies’ and still sleeps with one (ok maybe two or three some nights), clutching it to his face.
