Baby Cotton Gauze Swaddling Blankets
I've seen these Aden and Anais muslin swaddlers everywhere... they seem to be the new thing in baby swaddling. I saw them at Target and almost bought them, since the lightweight cotton/muslin will be much better for Hawaii weather than a knit or flannel receiving blanket for swaddling. The thing is, they were $35 for 4 of them, and that seemed a little steep to me, so I put that purchase on hold till I could go home and do some research. Fabric.com, one of my favorite places to buy fabric had a cotton gauze fabric that looked very similar to the Aden and Anais swaddlers I saw at the store, and for $4 a yard! Score! So I bought a few colors and even found a coupon online which made up for the $$ I had to pay in shipping. So for about $15 I got 3 100% cotton gauze swaddling blankets, I just had to serge them myself when I got them in the mail.
