Here are the best towels and robes for newborns to toddlers.Best Baby Bath Towels and Robes

There’s something about tiny baby towels that take your kiddo’s off-the-charts cuteness to another level. Along with being genuinely adorable, snuggling your baby in a soft towel is the perfect way to cap off bath time.

For the best value over time, look for towels that are large enough to last beyond the newborn stage (something bigger than 30”) and that stay nice and soft after lots of washes. Animal ears on the hood are optional (but highly recommended).

These are our favorite baby towels and robes to keep your little one warm.

Whether cotton, Turkish cotton or bamboo, the materials that make up these towels are certified organic (and certified snuggly!).
