Your baby is probably the most precious thing in the world to you, and he definitely deserves the very best. From bath products to the best towels, quality should not be compromised for your newborn’s soft baby skin even during bath time.
Choosing the right towel might be easy for adults as you know we know our own preferences, but how should parents go about choosing the ideal face towel or bath towel for their young babies?
Humidity is high almost all the time in Singapore, which is why parents have to take into account the thickness of the bath towel when buying one. since thick bath towels take a longer time to dry completely and can retain bacteria and germs in our warm climate, which might cause rashes on babies.
Cotton towels are the best choice in this case since they are more breathable and will feel more comfortable on your baby’s skin.
Absorbency is a crucial factor when it comes to picking out a face or bath towel for your children. Minimise your children’s exposure to air as much as possible when they are still dripping wet from a shower by wrapping them in a high-absorbency bath towel immediately after bathtime. Children tend to fidget and are in a rush to go play after showering, using a highly absorbent towel can cut down the time needed to dry them completely.
Hooded baby towels are especially useful in this case for a fidgety toddler as you can simply hook the towel on their head and start drying them without having to avoid dropping the towel.

The general rule of thumb is that a baby’s bath towel should be twice as absorbent as regular towels for adults. Newborns should use towels between 600 to 700 grams per square meter (GMS).
It is recommended to start with a towel that is 26 x 45.5 x 52 inches and size up as your child grows. Avoid buying towels that are too small to avoid exposing part of their bodies to the cold when they leave the shower.
Hooded baby towels add a fun touch to bath time and can encourage your child to take regular showers. Consider getting a hooded towel for your baby if you face difficulty bringing them for shower time.
