Royal Family Home Photos | Aden & Anais Baby Blanket

Prince George's 1st Family Home Photos

How sweet is this picture!  Kate's dad, Michael Middleton snapped this photo of the young royals holding Prince George and posed with their cocker spaniel, Lupo.  Would this not make the cutest holiday card ever!  The Royal family looks relaxed and happy and both the baby and the puppy are simply adorable.

Although it is difficult to tell, it appears as if the young prince is wrapped in a fresh, crisp white blanket much like the one he came home from the hospital in.  It seems as if the Duchess taste leans toward clean simplicty. We love these all white Aden & Anais Dreamer Swaddling Blankets

Prince George Comes Home from the Hospital Swaddled in Aden + Anais

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?
