I had two that I never used – I much prefer a big regular towel.

I remember my mom making some as baby shower gifts when I was a kid, stitch two wash cloths together to make the hood and attach it to the big towel. Very simple and it could be more cost effective but I’ve never noted the prices on them. They’re super cute and fun when the kids get to the age where they realize they want to have a “special” towel but definitely unnecessary!

I have two hooded towels I got as gifts at my baby shower but in all honesty, you can use ANY towel. My 9 week old loves bath time but as soon as he gets out I dry him off super ninja fast because he gets cold and then starts crying. So I don’t even use the hoods. The big bath towels actually work better because I can totally encase him in them and he stays a bit warmer.

mightywombat:  I’ve actually always used a hooded towel that I got as a present and I love it. I feel like it keeps him a little warmer as we walk from bathroom to room. PLUS it keeps the towel up and not falling down around his shoulders as you walk with hiim. Not a necessity by any means but if you get one as a gift, I’d use it and not return it.

My son is 4 and he still loves his hooded towels. He thinks they are great. He has a monkey one with a tail on it and he giggles everytime we use that one. They are more fun than anything else.

We managed to get through the first year with only 2 hooded towels. Used them 3-4 times and hung to dry between each use. No need to have a whole closet full. I personally thought it was nessasary because babies can’t regulate their body heat.
