Oftentimes we receive letters from parents sharing how our blankets have comforted their little ones during times of illness. It is bittersweet to learn that our blankets bring joy during such horrible circumstances. Each note we receive from parents of sick children has an impact on Raegan and the aden + anais family. One letter in particular really struck a chord.

Hayden Dorsett was a little boy who passed away from a type of Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) called hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). HLHS is a severe heart defect in which the left side of the heart is underdeveloped. This defect typically requires open-heart surgery and can be fatal without early intervention.

After Hayden’s passing, his mother Ady wrote a letter to Raegan sharing Hayden’s story. During the course of his illness, Hayden had always found comfort in his aden + anais blankets. It was so humbling that Ady took the time to share Hayden’s journey with Raegan, especially after having gone through such a tragedy.

“The mission of Hayden’s Heart is not only to raise CHD awareness and keep Hayden’s memory alive, but also to help many families with their immense medical bills and travel expenses. A portion of the profits from every Hayden’s Heart swaddle sold will go directly to the foundation."


Raegan decided to collaborate with the nonprofit set up in Hayden’s memory, Hayden’s Heart, to create a collection of 100% cotton muslin swaddles. The mission of Hayden’s Heart is not only to raise CHD awareness and keep Hayden’s memory alive, but also to help many families with their immense medical bills and travel expenses. A portion of the profits from every Hayden’s Heart swaddle sold will go directly to the foundation.

Drawing inspiration from the foundation’s logo, the designs include Hayden’s footprints surrounded by a heart. The Hayden’s Heart swaddles are available in three different colors: have a heart (pink), heart of mine (green) and piece of me (blue).
