MiracleWare {Review}

If you haven’t figured it out by now, the BurritoBuzz moms are in love with muslin. Muslin is a soft, breathable, non-shrinking fabric that our littles love to snuggle in. From wraps, to sheets, to towels and blankets, muslin is the way to go. Recently,we were introduced to MiracleWare, a muslin line of top-quality products in a variety of patterns and colors.

I decided to try out a handful of products: the crib sheet, hooded towels, and the security blankets.

as-seen

cribsheet-08_300dpiMiracleWare Crib Sheet: Two layered, 100% cotton muslin, stretch, breathable sheet. The sheet comes in a variety of colors and patterns. We opted for the elephant pattern. I was surprised with the quality of the sheet for one major reason: most crib sheets you struggle to get onto the mattress. There is nothing worse than struggling in the middle of the night after your little one has leaked through their diaper to quickly remove and put on a new sheet. This sheet, while fitted, stretches easily and stays put. The elastic band around the edge is thicker than most, keeping the sheet in place. Price: $29.95. It’s a little steep for what I’d typically spend on a sheet, but with muslin, you’re generally going to pay double, if not more. And truly, muslin gets softer with each wash.

748252313249-pic2MiracleWare Hooded Towels: I assumed these would be like most other hooded towels that I’ve used, but I was so wrong. The towels come in various quantities, colors, and patterns, but a two pack runs $33.95. The towels are slightly larger than most, which is great for my off-the-charts tall toddler. But the best aspect? The towels get softer and fluffier with each wash, which is not typical of a towel. They are the softest baby towels I’ve used thus far and they seem sturdy enough to last a good length of time. So, in my opinion? Get a two pack of these and avoid the other towels.

748252305541-pic4MiracleWare Security Blankets: A thin muslin square with a silk edge. Little ones love the silk blankets, but this one is idea because the breathable muslin makes it a safer option for babies. These blankets are just big enough to be a good security blanket. Price: $12.95 for a two pack.

Overall I’m very impressed with the MiracleWare product line. They have all kinds of great items, which you can check out here. These would make great baby shower and holiday gifts for the little ones in your life!

You can also find Miracleware products at Babies R Us!

Aden+Anais Dream Blanket {Review}

You might already know about Aden+Anais, because BurritoBuzz moms love their products. We did a review not long ago on their toddler bedding, but I want to share my new favorite love with you all: The Aden+Anais Dream Blanket.

Their super soft muslin dream blanket is four layers of rayon, made from bamboo. The blanket is breathable, but still thick enough to be plush and warm. The quality stitching keeps your blanket from falling apart like many other blankets do, particullarly when being machine washed over and over again.

I was thrilled to throw this into my son’s crib, knowing that it’s a safe product for him (he’s now 16 months, so well beyond the age of keeping items out of the crib.) This is a good starter blanket for him. The designs are truly beautiful, and I chose the Midnight – Stylo. What I like most about this blanket is how easy it is to quickly fold up and transport– it isn’t bulky, so it easily fits into my diaper bag.
The price point is a little high for the Dream Blanket, at right around $60. The cost of most muslin products, especially of such good quality, is generally slightly higher than a typical blanket.
Many thanks to Aden + Anais for always providing quality products.

Aden + Anais Baby Clothes {Review}

Aden + Anais is famous for their amazing natural muslin blankets. Seriously, they make the softest swaddles and blankets I have ever felt. They are so popular, I bet if you have ADENBYAA-01had a baby shower, you most likely were gifted at least one Aden + Anais product. Over the years, A + A really expanded their product line, from bedding for babies and toddlers to bibs and burp cloths to skin care products to towels and washcloths (check out all of their products here). Every single one of their products have left me feeling nothing but impressed. But my favorite product they have released is their baby apparel. Yes, the muslin fabric that makes their blankets so absolutely fabulous now makes up their beautiful baby clothes! We reached out to A + A a few weeks ago and they kindly sent me a few outfits for me to try (and ultimately fall in love with) on my 3 month old and review them for Burrito Buzz.

I was sent a beautiful romper, a short sleeve kimono onesie, smock top and ruffle bloomers from their little girl’s line, but there are several other pieces, including a one IMG_5855piece short sleeve kimono, long sleeve kimono onesie, jersey pants, muslin pants, hoodie, tunic, tank top bodysuit and long sleeve zipper one piece. All of their clothes are available in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 9-12 months (hopefully the line will be available in bigger sizes soon so toddlers can enjoy them!) and fit true to size in my opinion. I washed the clothing as soon as I received them and they of course came out of the dryer even softer, as they will with each wash thanks to the awesome muslin. The muslin is breathable which is definitely needed during hot and humid Ohio summers and because my baby is a little furnace – she’s always so warm. The romper’s straps are also adjustable which I love, so baby can wear it all summer without outgrowing. There is a little bit of spandex (turning their muslin into a super fabric!) added to the fabric to allow for some stretch which is the perfect amount for always-on-the-move babies.

Caring for A + A clothing is super easy. Wash with like colors in warm water, tumble dry on low. There’s no need to iron or dry clean. Easy peasy! They also offer the FullSizeRender (29)cutest prints! From bright stripes in pink or blue, to bright stars in pink or blue, little hearts and butterflies and a gray star – the perfect gender neutral print. There are several other prints and a few solids to chose from and all of them are simply beautiful!

If I could, I would give Aden + Anais clothing a 6 out of 5 stars. My expectations have been exceeded. The quality is superb but it is to be expected with such an amazing company. I feel like the pieces are timelessly stunning and will definitely be saved to pass down to my girls’ children and hopefully their children. The one and only problem I can find is the price. The pieces range from $14.95 (bloomers) to $34.95 (hoodie) which is expensive to me. I’m a stay-at-home mom with 2 little ones trying to survive on one income, so it would be very hard to outfit my little one in A + A clothing on a regular basis.. unless they are on sale because I live for sales!

Aden+Anais Toddler Bedding: Liam the Brave

81ur7Y0U1EL._SY550_
My son is finally a year old, which is a huge milestone for bed time! We kept Lucas’ crib free of any bedding/extras for the entire first year. After he turned one we got the go-ahead from the pediatrician to give him a blanket. (In all reality, he moves around enough in his crib that it’s rarely on him anyway.)

I really wanted to find something that was breathable since he still smashes his face up against his bedding. I love Aden+Anais, and their muslin products, and Lucas got the Liam the Brave set for his birthday. It’s a full bed in a bag, with a crib sheet attached to a thin muslin sheet, a thicker comforter, and a pillow. All were great quality.

The bed in a bad can be found on Amazon for between $70-$80. A little pricey, but because they 91bNuj6827L._SX522_have such a good reputation, I thought it was worth it to have some safe, quality bedding. It has washed very well, with no fraying.

The pillow is exceptionally thinner than it appears in the photo (so thin, that I actually thought it was part of a sheet at first.) Again, my LO doesn’t keep his head on it right now anyway… and it’s breathable, so I don’t have to worry about him bunching it up. It’s a good introductory pillow, but he’ll eventually need one a little thicker, I’m sure.

 

I highly recommend Aden+Anais for your toddler’s first bedding set!
