You know what you don’t need? Baby towels. Sure, they’re adorable because they come with little corner pocket hoods that make your kid look like a duck or a dinosaur. But you know what I bet you already have? Towels. Regular-sized towels that won’t outgrow your kid in six months. Take baby towels off your … Continue reading Baby Towels →
