Baby Star Hooded Towel Sets (Review and Giveaway)

by Andrea Updyke

Nothing beats giving your sweet baby a bath and wrapping him or her up in a nice soft towel. My boys have outgrown the baby bathtub, but when they were small I loved to gently give them a bath and get them all clean. I loved the smell of the baby soap and watching them explore the water. I honestly think it was as relaxing for me as it was for them. After bath time I would lay them on their towel and put baby lotion on and some nice cozy jammies. It’s one of my favorite memories as a mom.

If you are looking for a great towel set for your baby or to give as a gift, BabyStar hooded towel sets ($36) are a great choice.

My favorite part is just seeing how much my kids enjoy taking a bath – they love being in the water.

May daughter love splashing around the tub and practicing her floating on her back for swim class. It is great watching her have fun.

My favorite part will be that I’m done being pregnant, lol. (Only 28 days left!) But unless my baby hates the water I think it’ll be fun – I love baths, why shouldn’t she?

My nephew always cuddles after he gets his bath. He gets quiet and sweet and we snuggle while he’s wrapped in his towel.

Watching the baby experience the water. they splash and the laugh if you bathe them in a larger tube they can work on their balance and floating. I love placing a gassy newborn in a luke warm bath covered with a wet towel and baste as they sleep sometimes this was the only way to relax my preemie adopted son before we got all the issues with his stomach worked out. We used the towel so that he didn’t chill some times he would spend 1-2 hours in a warm bath like this
