Yesterday afternoon we arrived home from new car shopping (unsuccessful unfortunately) with one very sweaty baby. Poor Number Three was too warmly dressed for the gorgeous day it ended up being and, to top things off, the air conditioning in the car is broken. The poor little fella was clammy, red in the face and the little bit of hair he has was damp.
Needless to say, I was only thrilled to be met at the front door by a parcel containing an aden + anais baby bath wrap to be reviewed. Number Three was badly in need of a bath and I was dying to get the gorgeous looking towelling wrap unpacked. Handily enough, these wraps come pre-washed, so it was all ready for its first use.
|This is what the wrap looks like in the original packaging. It would make quite a pretty newborn gift. We got the Jungle Jam pattern. The wrap is also available in other patterns, including some lovely star patterns.|
|The package contains the wrap itself and instructions on how to use it. The instructions are provided in various languages, including English, German and French.|
|The hang up hook - a brilliant addition, I find.|
|The patterned muslin and the jersey trim are both beautifully soft and so gentle on baby's skin.|
|The belt means that the wrap won't slip off even when baby reaches crawling age.|
The things I didn't like or feel could be improved can be reduced down to:
1. The window on the front of the packaging is open rather than having a clear plastic cover. While this gives you the chance to feel the material before buying, it does take away a bit form the pre-washed idea. How many hands have run over that soft, pre-washed material? Who knows.
2. The wrap left quite a bit of fluff on Number Three. Even on the second use this evening, I had to dust off a good bit of fluff before putting his sleep suit on him.
All in all we are pleased with our aden + anais baby bath wrap. It does what it is supposed to and is soft and pretty too. The two points I mentioned above that I wasn't impressed with are small problems really. I'm sure that the first couple of washes will sort out the fluff issue. And should there be anything negative arising after the first wash, I'll be sure to post something about it.
