Review: Bathtime with Cuddledry


“IT’S BATH TIME!” screams Little Viking! In our household, bathtime varies. We don’t do it every day so as a result it isn’t part of a set routine. Little Viking really loves to play in water, so we have noticed that having a bath is far more fun if he isn’t tired. He has so many bath toys, and loves to play in the bath for ages (I allow him one top up of warm water!)


We are slowly introducing Mini Viking to bathtime and the fun it can be. She bathes in a baby bath still as our bath is so deep. It can also be a real challenge to bathe both at the same time. So usually I wait for Jake to be home so we can do it all together as a family. We read, we play, we sing and we blow lots of bubbles, of course usually Jake and I look like we got in the bath too as we are covered in so much water!




Getting them both out of the bath however is sometimes where the fun ends. No-one likes to climb out of a warm bath into the cold air! This is where our Cuddledry towels come in.

The fabulous towels are the design of Helen and Polly, two long-term friends now working mums. They were concerned that bathtime is hard enough as it is without struggling to wriggle your little one safely out of the bath. Made from bamboo and cotton, the towels are super soft.

The Cuddledry baby apron towel attaches around your neck like an apron, so both hands are free. Lifting baby up out of the bath is easy and safe, and you cuddle and dry your baby in your arms naturally, strengthening the bond between you. The cosy hood goes over their head to keep them warm and calm. You don’t have to think about holding a towel at all.

I first met Helen and Polly in 2013 when I was pregnant with Little Viking, and I fell in love with the design. We now use a Cuddledry Baby Towel on Mini Viking as well, we still have Little Viking’s one as well as a spare (its lasted brilliantly!). Mini Viking has the WWF Snow Leopard baby towel, we loved that £1 of every towel goes towards the charity.




One of the things I love most about the towels is the cuddles you get after a bath, your able to hold them close and keep them warm against your chest whilst drying them at the same time. Our problem is they are so comfy, Mini Viking usually falls asleep before we have had the chance to get her dressed!

With one award-winning towel under their belt, Helen and Polly didn’t stop there. Now they have an every growing and fabulous product range of swim towels, children’s dress-up towels, clever ponchos and robes. Little Viking is a huge fan of their children’s dress-up towels! He has both a dinosaur and a giraffe.



As you can see sometimes I like to dress up in them too!



The great thing about bathtime is the bonding we all do as a family. It really sounds cheesy but it brings us together, and who doesn’t feel great after a bath? I just love watching my vikings grow and interact with each other.





All of these photos were taken before we head out for the day so I was also lucky enough to get some happy pictures of the kids once they were dressed. I don’t always like to have them matching, but we love Maxomorra’s fabulous prints so couldn’t resist!

    Aw they look so cute when they are squeaky cleaning their pj’s! I’ll definitely give cuddle dry towels a try xx

  2. I know a little three year old boy who would also love to be a giraffe. Bath time for us ends with him popping his towel on his head running round pretending to be Super Boy……

    The towels are so cute I think Blake would love both designs.
    He has quite a few dinosaur bits and Giraffe bits in our home at the moment mainly toys and clothing.

    Great review. Aw so cute, I love the giraffe one my son would love that. Bath time is slowly being introduced as part of bedtime routine for us at the moment. My son loves to play in there for ages. Thanks for sharing the review.

    Both of my boys hate towels and simply run around the house completely naked until they’re dried, haha!
