Bath time should be enjoyable for both you and your baby. After the birth of my newborn son, I became frustrated with hooded towels. No matter how careful you are when bathing your baby, bath time usually means a bath for you, too. It became a constant battle between keeping me, our counter top and floor dry when I would lift my slippery angel out of newborn baby tub that was in my kitchen sink.
I also was concerned about his safety when lifting him out of the sink and getting him over to the counter top where I had his hooded towel. Babies are so slippery when wet. I also wanted to be careful and protect his little head from bumping on the counter top when placing him on the hooded towel.
This easy-to-make Stay Dry Bathing Apron will help keep you dry from splashes of water and gives you a layer of protection while safely swaddling your baby the moment you taking them out of the tub. No more hoisting them over to the counter top with water dripping all over the place.
A few features of this apron are the size, length and ties. The apron was created for one size fits all, so both you and Daddy can wear it. The long length allows you to flip up the end so that you can still hold your baby and while drying them and keeping them completely covered. Your baby will be cuddled and stay warm. Another feature of the bathing apron is how it ties around the neck and waist. The ties keep the apron connected to you and allow your baby to stay safe and snug while you transport them to the changing table. Once you are there, give the ties a little tug, they quickly untie so you can lay your baby down with the towel acting a a barrier between the cold changing table and their bare skin. No more piddle accidents because of the change in temperature. Your baby stays wrapped up, warm and clean the entire time!
