Babies have a long way to go before they can take care of themselves. In the meantime, it’s up to the parents to do it for them. This includes regular baths for cleaning to prevent illness and foul smell. The use of gentle baby soap is recommended, as well as hooded bath towels for babies.

The hood makes sure that their head is protected and that moisture from the hair can be absorbed quickly. This will help in drying them out right away so they won’t catch a cold. It will also make the act of wrapping when them in towel so much easier.

The towel fabric is usually made of cotton. That’s because the fibers are known to absorb water quickly and hold them in. Once the baby have been wiped all over, remove from the towel and change into dry clothes as soon as possible.
