Puj Baby Bath Kneeler
When your child loves bath time, it can be so joyous… as long as you don’t have to kneel on the hard floor while reaching for the shampoo. (Ouch!) With the soft and cushiony Puj kneeler, bath time is the perfect way to connect with each other after spending time apart during the day.
Hushh for Baby Portable Sound Machine
The expression “sleep like a baby” must’ve originated from someone who knew the value of a good white noise machine. This small-but-mighty one has multiple sound options and you can take it with you anywhere thanks to the handy clip. Light and USB rechargeable, the Hushh helps mask noises and distractions to improve baby’s sleep and concentration. We can get behind that.
Baby Cotton Animal Face Hooded Towel, Lobster
The only thing better than a freshly bathed baby is one who is wrapped in an adorable towel afterward. That’s why this 100% woven terry cotton hooded lobster is top of our list. Available in 20 creature designs, we’re partial to this vibrant one for making the cutest crustaceans outside of the sea.
Darlyng & Co
