Review: Cuddledry Apron Towel

Baby bath time is both an exciting and daunting experience for new parents and even if you've had children before it always takes a few goes to get back into the swing of bathing a newborn. Not all new babies enjoy bath time either as it can leave them feeling a bit vulnerable with no clothes on so anything to make bathing easier and more efficient is a winner with me. Luckily for us Harlow and I have been given the opportunity to try out the original Cuddledry Apron Towel so here's what we thought.

A bit about Cuddledry: "The Cuddledry concept was founded by Helen Wooldridge and Polly Marsh, two long term friends, now working mums. Their first product was the Cuddledry baby bath towel - now a multiple award-winner and a 'must-have' for all new mums and dads. They discovered through their own experience that learning how to take care of your newborn was stressful enough, without the extra slippery problems associated with getting your precious wriggling bundle safely out of the bath! Most baby towels are lightweight squares, which parents have to hold awkwardly under their chin or between teeth in order to have two hands free to lift baby. Helen and Polly came up with Cuddledry to make the bath exit a bonding time, not a stress!"

Well let me just tell you now to forget other baby towels, the Cuddledry Apron Towel is the only baby towel you should be purchasing. It's super soft and really easy to use, especially whilst trying to juggle a slippery wet baby. You just wrap the strap round your neck, push in the poppers and hay presto you're wearing a towel apron. It's then really easy to use both hands to bath your baby and securely pick up your baby when bath time is over and wrap in the towel to dry. It also stops you from getting soggy wet clothes which is a bonus.

The towel is huge so keeps your baby warm and snug plus it has a good weight to it which helps baby feel safe and secure. Harlow likes going in the bath but cries coming out as I think she feels a bit exposed but as soon as I wrap her in the Cuddledry towel she settles immediately. I used Cuddledry towels when my son was little and I always felt that when he got older other baby towels just didn't cut it and were too small so he would cried as he would get cold. Not with this bad boy though, there's plenty of towel going around to keep your baby warm.

The Cuddledry Apron Towel is made from pure unbleached cotton and natural bamboo fibre which means it has natural antibacterial properties - perfect for babies with sensitive skin. It's also highly absorbent but seems to dry very quickly which I'm always fascinated by. As with any baby towel this one also has a little hood for babies head to dry their hair and keep their head warm,

So the Cuddeldry Apron Towel retails at £29.99 which is expensive however the amount of times you'll use this towel will definitely see you getting your monies worth and I guarantee you'll probably end up buying a second one. It washes really well too and always comes out just as soft and fluffy as when first bought.

Overall I highly recommend these towels. It's by far the best baby purchase I ever made when my son was little and Harlow's been lucky enough to receive one to review. If you buy it for a new baby or expectant mum they'll love you forever, it would be a great gift to receive.

Mummy's rating - 10/10
Harlow's rating - 10/10
