My son’s skin is very sensitive, I hate trying to dry his skin with his regular hooded towels after they had been washed a couple of times.  They feel SO rough and leave red marks on his body. I have bought a couple of different brands and they all do the same after a while.

Receiving the Under the Nile Organic Hooded towel from was great! As soon as I open the packaging and felt the material I knew this one was going to be different.  The 100% Organic Egyptian Cotton feels amazing against the skin.

The towel comes with a cute little washcloth that can be used as a puppet to play with your baby and it is so adorable!  I was excited to try it that night after his daily bath so I washed everything and had it ready for him.  First thing I loved right away about the Under the Nile towel was its size. It was not a tiny towel that didn’t fit around him. He is not a tiny baby anymore and all of his other towels were made for newborns.  I also loved that the hood covers his entire head and it makes it easy to dry his hair at once.

After several washes I can still feel the softness of the cotton and it really seems like it is getting softer with time. Definitively what I was expecting from high quality Organic Egyptian Cotton.  
I also receive the Boon Odd Duck to try and I must say my little one loves it. It is definitively the modern version of the old Rubber Ducky and it has some edge to it.  Totally hip and fashionable!

He was super entertained during and AFTER the bath. He took it with him to play while I was getting him dressed.  The Boon Odd Ducks are PVC, Phthalate and BPA free so they are a top pick when it comes to safe bath time toys for little ones.
