A guide to hooded towels for Babies

Thinking about buying a baby hooded towel in Australia? Know what to look for? Baby hooded towels help keep a baby’s head and body warm, and of course let’s not forget nice and snug, after bath time.

Here are a few tips on what to look for when buying a baby hooded towel in Australia.

How well does it absorb water:
Be sure the towel will be good at absorbing water completely after bath time, which of course works to keep your baby nice and dry?

We all know how soft a baby’s skin is. With this in mind, towels they use should be sensitive, soft and gentle on their skin. Avoid anything scratchy or stiff.

Materials used for the towel
Baby towels should be made of the fabric that soak up water quickly and thoroughly, are soft, and don’t irritate a baby’s skin, is hypoallergenic, and is stain resistant.

Allergies & Hypoallergenic
Avoid materials known to trigger allergic reactions in your baby, or perhaps even mild irritations. Consider whether scented towels, or those that have been coloured may cause a reaction.

As with all baby and toddler products, washability is a must. Ensure it’s a fabric that washes well, and can cope with constant washing.

We recommend buying baby hooded towels that are made from natural fabrics such as cotton or bamboo for the best results.
