16 best hooded baby towels in Australia

Few sights melt a heart like a squeaky-clean mini bundled up in a baby hooded towel. Warm, cosy and protective, a great-quality hooded baby towel wraps up tub time perfectly.

Hooded baby towels cocoon bubs from head to toe, protecting little bodies from unwanted chills after a soak in the baby bath. Perfectly sized for pint-size people, and a lot easier to manage than a full-sized towel, they make bath time fuss-free and more organised.

What to look for in a baby hooded towel

Luna's Treasures

MaterialsBabies’ skin can be quite sensitive, especially in the early months. So, as with cot sheets and other must-have baby manchester, look for a hooded towel made of soft materials that provide gentle care to young and delicate skin.

Absorbency – They may be tiny, but little humans still need towels with generous absorbency – especially if they have a good mop of hair up top. Search for a fabric composition that will soak up every drip without you needing to reach for a second towel.

Size – Bubs grow (and they grow fast!) so opt for a baby towel that comes with plenty of growing room to see you through the early years. Also, keep in mind that your mini’s special towel may sometimes double as a baby blanket, or be placed over the change mat, so having some extra length to completely wrap around little ones will come in handy.

Easy care – Your baby towel will be used day-in, day-out, so make sure it is machine-washable and quick to dry so that you can have it back in use in a jiffy.
