My favorite baby item has to be the multi-purpose, and versatile muslin swaddle blanket by aden+anais. Introduced to me by my younger sister, I instantly feel in love with the soft, lightweight, easy to wash, swaddle blankets. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, aden + anais introduced their newest swaddle, The Hayden’s Heart swaddles. The Hayden’s Heart swaddles benefit the Hayden’s Heart foundation, a not-for-profit that brings awareness to and honors all children fighting Congenital Heart Disease, the leading cause of infant deaths in the US. Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week is February 7th through the 14th.
The aden +anais’ “Hayden’s Heart” swaddle blanket is inspired by Hayden Dorset, a young boy who lost his battle with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) but touched the lives of many long after his time here on earth. On March 12, 2012, Hayden was born with a very rare birth defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Much of Hayden’s time on earth was spent in and out of the hospital and after just 5 months with his family, Hayden unfortunately passed away.
The Hayden’s Heart swaddle was inspired by Hayden after his mother, Ady, wrote Raegan Moya-Jones, CEO of aden + anais and mother of four herself, a beautiful letter sharing their story. Whether it was nap time or bedtime, Hayden couldn’t fall asleep without the comfort of his aden + anais muslin swaddles. Raegan was so touched by the letter, she knew she had to do something to honor his memory.
Congenital Heart Disease is the #1 cause of birth defect-related deaths, and the leading cause of all infant deaths in the US.
The collection will benefit Hayden’s Heart, a not-for-profit whose mission is to raise awareness for CHD and help families affected by CHD with the burden of medical and travel expenses.
Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week, February 7 – 14th.
