I had only planned to get ones with minkee anyway as they become ridiculously expensive for the embroidery I would want :giggle:



Thanks Lexi, shall go check them out!


I think the main issue is the size as I can always use softener etc if they need softening up a little :thumbsup:

I would just buy some big fluffy towels - we had hooded with Scarlett but i find most of them quite thin after a bit and they get mishapen etc then you cant use them when outgrown.

We have lots of big towels now so i'm planning to just use those, like they do in hospital really.

i have 4 tots bots bamboo hooded towels and they are brill. 2 of them are almost 6 years old and are still soft. I still use them for my 3 year old.

I think that may be the best and cheapest option. We moved to normal towels when Darcy was a few months old, and I have wanted an excuse to replace our normal towels so maybe I should just use it as an excuse to buy a while new set :giggle:

I was just looking at the tots bots ones yesterday but they only have the orange and yellow left on their website and I am not particularly fond of either of those colours :-?

Don't add softener to towels in the wash, it repels water. Not good when towels are used to dry your body ;)

We use big thick Egyptian cotton ones from asda :) no hoods but they do the job fine :)

I dont tend to use softener but use Bold 2 in 1 usually which has softener in it, although I did occasionally use softener on Darcys towels when she was tiny but it didn't seem to make any difference to absorbency, I guess when they are so tiny they dont have a massive amount of water on them to dry off anyway when they get out of the bath so wasn't really an issue.

I think I am just going to get the same towels that Darcy now has from Sainsburys as they are really nice quality and come in lovely bright colours :thumbsup:

Is there anywhere else that sells them except from Tots Bots direct? I just dont do yellow or orange, I am much more of a blue/green/purple kinda person and yellow/orange doesnt suit me or Darcy so I tend to avoid it :giggle:

Think I am pretty much decided I will just get normal towels now anyway, as thats all we have used on Darcy since she was a few months old and they have been fab and seems silly to spend at least £15 on a towel when I could get 2-3 normal towels for that price!
