I’ve always found it quite tricky and awkward, albeit inevitable, to bath James on my own. My husband works in the day, so I’ve had to make do with it. One of the hardest parts for me (before James discovered that trying to stand up in the slippery bath is so much fun!) is to get baby out of the bath whilst balancing a towel against my body to make sure I don’t get soaked and that James gets nice and dry quickly. So when the lovely people at Cuddledry got in touch with me and asked if I would like to review their innovative apron-style Baby Bath Towel, I thought, ‘perfect timing!’.
The Cuddledry Baby Bath Towel, is an apron-like towel that clips around your neck, leaving both your hands free to get your baby out of the bath. Ingenious! There’s nothing more to it – it’s as simple as that, but it has helped me out during bath time tremendously!
The towel itself is beautiful, big and super soft, made out of pure unbleached cotton and natural bamboo fibre. I’ve seen soft towels in my day, but this one is almost like a hug – it’s so cosy and most importantly, very absorbent. The corner hood makes it easy to get it over baby’s head whilst wrapping them warm around the towel. I went for the baby blue and white colour, but there are lots of other colours to choose from, some fun prints for babies and dress-up towels for toddlers.
I’ve had the Cuddledry Apron Towel for about 4 months now and it has become an essential item during bath-time for me. Most of the time, I bath James on my own, so if you, like me, wishes you had a third hand during bath-time, I highly recommend this apron towel – it gives you one less thing to worry about! Its convenience comes with a price tag, which may not be justifiable to everyone, but it is a little luxury that has made my life easier, and I would gladly gift this to my pregnant friends and new mums.
Having both your hands free during bath-time is even more important during the newborn stage, as babies are still very floppy and not sturdy, which combined with being wet makes them incredibly slippery, so I would say that not having to worry about balancing the towel and holding the baby safely at the same time, is rather nice.
