Ikea Children's Hooded Towel
Advantages: Really cute, dries well, keeps them warm
Disadvantages: hood big
I love hooded towels. Hope, nearly 4, still uses hers sometimes and it makes me a little sad to think that she is now getting too big for them but we use them all the time for her little brother. I hadn't heard of them before I Had children and now I realise how useful they are and a good invention as well as being ever so cute!
You can buy them in all different places in different styles. We got bought a couple from IKEA when our baby was born, I hadn't even realised you could buy them from there.
It is basically a bath towel which has a little hood in one of it's corners so that your baby can be as warm as possible when you are drying them. The one we have from Ikea is similar to the one in the picture but is a bear with little ears on the hood and has little paws.
Size wise it's very similar to a hand towel but is square. This is a really good size for a baby, it wraps around our baby really well and as I said is still big enough for my 4 year old but is starting to get too big! For a baby you can completely wrap them in it and snuggle them. The hood is big so will flop over their faces at first until they grow into it but this means that it will fit for much longer.
It is very soft to touch especially if you tumble dry it. It is really gentle against their skin. Before we used it we washed it as we know that it's hard to dry with a towel that's not been washed. It washed well and didn't bobble up and then worked really well at drying. We tend to lie the towel on the floor and then lift our baby out, lie him into it and wrap the towel round him with the hood over his head.
The hood helps to keep him warm and also speeds up the process of drying his hair. It looks really cute him having a hood on and the little ears make him look like a little bear. At first the hood annoyed him as it would fall over his eyes but now he is bigger it doesn't bother him and he fits it much better than he did.
It has been washed many times and still remains in really good condition so is very good quality. It has bobbled up at all and has kept it's shape.
I am really pleased with this gift and think we will get lots more use out of it yet so it was a very practical yet cute present.
