When completing a layette for a newborn, you cannot forget about various types of bathing covers, which are suitable not only for the daily hygiene routine, but also for visits to the swimming pool, beach or lake. What types of covers will you get in our shop? Is it worth paying attention to the material composition of such accessories? Which models should you choose for your child? We will answer all these questions in the article below.
How is a bathing cover different from a towel?
A bathing cover for babies is nothing more than a towel with a special pocket for the baby’s head. It is an absolute must have after each bath, because it not only absorbs water, but also wraps and protects against sudden changes in temperature. Of course, this type of accessory will also be useful for you in the swimming pool, in the water park, on the beach or in any other place where the child has contact with water. Wiping the baby after bathing is extremely important because it allows the child to adapt to the air temperature and protects their delicate skin. It is also important to always wrap your baby’s head. That is why bathing covers are so useful and worth investing in, especially since they are used not only for newborns, but also for older children.
What to pay attention to when choosing a bathing cover?
Bathing covers are worth choosing due to two aspects: size and material. The standard size is 100×100 cm, which works well for most children, and can also be used for several months. However, sometimes it happens that a newborn is very tiny, then it is worth having a cover of 75×75 cm. The fabric from which the accessory is made is extremely important because it directly touches the child’s entire body. It should be remembered that the skin of newborns and infants is not yet shaped sufficiently, and therefore it is much more susceptible to irritation than the skin of adults.
Terry or bamboo bathing cover?
The materials from which wiping accessories are made differ. One of the options are bamboo covers, which are made of 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. It is a great solution for every season of the year, because the fabric adapts to weather conditions. When it is warm, it lets air in and does not allow the child to overheat, while when it is cold, it provides a pleasant hug. The second option are terry bathing covers, made of 100% cotton. This is quite a popular option, because this fabric has been used for many, many years because it absorbs moisture very well. However, it is worth paying attention to what fibres the product is made of. In our shop you will find only the highest quality terry cloths, so you can be sure that they will not irritate your baby’s delicate skin.
