At my first baby shower, I received a Tigger hooded towel for Darah. Hooded towels are totally adorable and also serve a great purpose in that they help keep your baby warm from head to toe after getting them out of the bath. This is especially important when they are tiny and can’t regulate their own body temperatures very well.
I also like hooded towels because the larger, more plush versions can grow with your child, as opposed to the tiny hooded towels, which Darah outgrew by the time she was 6 months old (and she was a small baby!). The Tigger towel is just now starting to be a little bit small for Darah.
As great as it has been, I can’t say that I’m going to miss having a big orange towel hanging out in my bathroom. It honestly was just unsightly and it clashed with everything. I guess that’s probably going to be the case with many character print towels.
But Ahmelie, who you saw featured for her stylish burp cloths, has an alternative that you should check out. Her hooded towels are GORGEOUS! No seriously. STUNNING. As in, I want one in my size. Many of them are made with Amy Butler towels. Amy Butler is known for her gorgeous prints, and these towels are certainly no exception. They are also organic. Just take a look and see the cuteness for yourself!
We received the Woodfern Grey hooded towel and it matches our bathroom perfectly. I LOVE seeing it hanging up in the room; what a refreshing change from bright orange! Darah also thinks it is beautiful and loves being wrapped up in it after her bath. The towel is very plush and absorbent. It feels like one of those towels that you get to use when you visit a wealthy relative. Ha ha!
For the next little peanut on the way, I’m completely skipping over those thin infant hooded towels, and I’m bypassing character towels, too. On my wish list is another Ahmelie hooded towel that will get used over and over again for several years. I predict Darah won’t outgrow hers until she is at least 6! These towels retail for $32.00 and given how beautiful and soft they are, and how long they will last, they are absolutely worth the price!
