Our obsession with the royal family continues! Prince William just announced that Prince George's bedroom will be decorated with jungle safari theme nursery decor, in deference to his family’s love of Africa. “I’ll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room … “We’ll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We'll] make him grow up as if he’s in the bush,” the new dad said in CNN’s one-hour special, “Prince William’s Passion: New Father, New Hope.”
So knowing that so many mom's-to-be look to the young royals for style ideas, whether it be their choice of strollers or baby names, we have put together an inspiration board with lots of adorable safari theme nursery decor ideas. Any of these nursery essentials would all be much appreciated gifts at any African inspired safari theme baby shower or even an elephant or giraffe theme baby shower.
Aden + Anais Swaddling Blanket
As His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge heads home in this adorable soft and cozy Aden + Anais Jungle Jam Bird Swaddle Wrap swaddling blanket, I can't help but reminisce about my first swaddling adventure.
Daniel, my first born, developed jaundice soon after he was born. The doctor suggested we put him in the window to expose him to sunlight. The problem is the nurses also drilled into my husband and me the importance of swaddling newborns. Being the new and inexperienced parents we were, Matt and I obediently followed both instructions at the same time. When Matt's dad, an renowned New York OB/GYN discovered his 2nd born grandson cooking in the window, he lost it. He truly thought I had to be the most inept mother on earth . Ever since I have been absolutely mortified by my complete lack of common sense during those first few days as a new mom. This is why I once again implore everyone to give the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge a modicum of privacy to allow them to make the mistakes every new parent inevitably makes without broadcasting each personal embarrassment to the world.
Enough reminiscing. Why are Aden + Anais swaddling blankets fit for a royal baby?
Eco-friendly Aden + Anais sources organic muslin to create the ultimate in soft and durable baby essentials. Featuring colorful and unique prints, Aden and Anais’swaddling wraps, sleep sacks, bedding and blankets envelop babies in warm comfort, while bibs, changing pad covers, towels, washcloths and skin care accessories ensure all needs are met with quality products. Cozy and lasting, Aden and Anais products make the perfect baby gift for new moms and baby showers.
The swaddling blankets allow for maxium breathability and airflow with soft, open weave bamboo rayon fabric. Blankets come in sets of four and each set features different patterns and prints. They can be used for traditional swaddling or as a burp cloth, nursing shield or stroller cover. Machine washable swaddles get softer after each laundering.
Haven’t learned or can’t quite remember the ins and outs and folds and tucks of swaddling. Check out these How to Swaddle Instructions.
