Back when I had Reuben poncho towels weren’t really very popular – they certainly weren’t sold in every supermarket and every high street store like they are today. They were, however, so much easier to use than than the usual towels when getting a baby out of the pool. The hood went straight over the head, the fowl wrapped around and – most importantly – stayed put! After one of the mums at our very first Water Babies baby swimming class had one, I knew I had to steal her style and get myself – or Roo – one to use.
These ponchos are by far the cutest I have found – they are made from the softest towelling and there are a tonne of different trims to choose from so they will suit any style conscious little one or parent. Not to mention the fact that (unlike baby towels or over the head ponchos) these will last up to four years of age.
The brand, Baby Shower, is fast becoming a favourite of mine – it’s like a treasure trove for style and cuteness. I have no doubt you will be seeing a bundle of their products on the blog over the conning months.
