It breaks our hearts to part with a supersoft swaddle (or 8), so we’ve found 21 alternate uses for our Aden + Anais – from crumb catcher to superhero cape!
Tie it around child’s neck for an instant bib
A lovey (soft + breathable + washable = score)
Fabric for a boudoir pillow case for the crib
A head scarf or turban
A changing pad in a pinch
A giant, effective burp cloth
A portable crib sheet if you forget one – it’s big enough to cover and fold under the mattress.
A spring/summer scarf for you (though not if you opted for the monkey print, please)
A toy and food-catcher on the plane (tuck one end in the seat pocket, the other under the car seat)
A swim towel for littles, especially since it dries quickly
A travel sunshade for the car (tuck it in as you’re rolling up the window)
A hammock or a swaddle for a baby doll
Tie it around your neck and — voila! — impromptu nursing cover
A cover for the dirty airplane seat
A sunshade or a lightweight blanket in the stroller
A booger/snot wiper
A cape for superhero play
A pareo for you at the beach
Restaurant high chair cover — also filthy!
Canopy for building forts
Shopping cart cover – those things are dirty and cold
