Few moments are sweeter or more bonding with your little one, than that time of day when you get you help your child unwind with a nice warm bath. Stick the landing by making sure you have the best hooded towel waiting to snuggle them into when you pull them out.
Whether you are looking for super cute hooded towels that go with your color scheme or you’re just determined to find the best, softest hooded towel for your baby, we’ve got you covered with the top 5 on the market this year.
And, since we know you’re busy moms we started with our best pick first.
Newborns, infants, and toddlers can have sensitive skin and can be prone to eczema, baby acne, and cradle cap, especially, when they’re exposed to too-harsh materials. That’s why Land of Wee makes its hooded towel for your little one with bamboo. Bamboo is twice as soft as cotton and naturally hypoallergenic, making it the perfect material for a new baby. It’s also odor-resistant, ultra-absorbent, and good for the earth. Bamboo grows in abundance, is biodegradable, and guaranteed organic. This woodland bear printed hooded towel is sure to be a perfect fit and it's one of the largest baby towels available, so you can use it well into those toddler years. It also ditches wasteful disposable packaging and comes packaged in a incredibly handy wet dry bag, which is an essential for new baby care. Okay, we know we are biased, since we made this towel, but it really is the absolute softest. You don't just have to take our word for it, check out our over 175 reviews proclaiming it's softness on Amazon.
This version of the hooded baby towel is great for bath, pool, or beach. It’s naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial, so you can swaddle your little one with a sound mind. This towel is 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. It has adorable gingham printed ears that come in three different colors. It's also generously sized (one of the biggest) which means you should be able to use it for awhile, however, some parents report it can be a little overwhelming for a newborn baby. (pick your poison)
This hooded towel also stands up with the rest of the best towels for newborns. It’s made from bamboo-derived rayon for a soft, hypoallergenic feel on the outside. The base of the towel is made from microfiber to keep the integrity of the shape. Some people report that this towel may take longer than most to dry and the grey material tends to shed. Overall, it’s a good starting point for newborns–and has the cutest ears on the hood!
For a change-up from the bear ears (even though we absolutely adore them!) Bambi Bamboo offers a fruit patterned hooded towel for babies. The size works for newborn babies to toddlers, so you can expect a bit extra fabric on this towel. The comes in lemon and strawberry print but is also reversible and flips to an all-white inside.
We know new moms go nuts for animal-ear hoods, and this towel takes a twist on the traditional bear ear design and turns your baby into a little lamb! Great for bath time or a swim in the pool, the whole family will take delight in seeing the smallest member in the family. It’s hypoallergenic and bamboo-derived for soft, sensitive skin. Though this is the most no frills version of our best baby towel picks, it will get the job done when there are eager family members waiting to take pictures.
