Must-Have: Cuddledry Baby Apron Bath Towel

December 13, 2016

Cuddledry’s grey stars baby apron bath towel, which launched earlier this autumn, is genius.  Before now, I had been struggling to get my baby out of the bath, laying her against my chest and drying her – only to end up with a sopping wet front and unhappy, wriggly baby.
