    will you be buying any specially for baby or just using your normal family towels?

    theyare so expensive and don't think we have £12 for 1towel spare right now and the multi packs feel rougher than our family towels!

    wondering ifthere are any other peoplewho aren't doing it the proper way? cause theni wont feel so bad and give into the£12 towels :rofl:

    i don't like home bargains/instore type places - bought a few things from both places inc. baby gros and towels for my son when he was youngeer and they didn't hold their shape well at all and the towel (it hada super cute lion head on :D) just looked raggedy and messy... though that was 3years ago so maybe quality has gone up? will have a nosey when i get chance :D

    the towel bales i have felt in babies r us and mothercare don't feel soft at all, feel ruff and not so nice even mr.man said and he has man hands that can't feel anything :rotfl: the individual ones feel so much nicer... with a nicer price of course!

    I bought 2 hooded proper baby towels but really they are a waste of money, and the rest I got where plain white towels from Asda and Wilkinsons.
    I'm keeping our towels seperate from the ones the baby will use.

    Hmm well the one thing i got i wouldn't say the quality has gone up, ripped before even used lol but they do have some things in such as wipes and stuff for cheaper than other shops but still the brands such as pampers or huggies. They do occasionaly get the odd good thing in but then they arew soon gone too lol.

    i guess in most cases you get what you pay for don't you?

    i think costco/kirkland signature nappies are faaaabulous! so are the costco/kirkland wipes. that was all my 3year old used and honest to god no leaks, no rashes, none of them jelly/crystals that sometimes leak. they were great, think that's where we will be going this time too :D

    Home Bargains wipes arent really a bargain, they were over £1.20 and the same were £1 in the Pound Shops.

    We got a new wooden loo seat from there and the hinges snapped within a few weeks, so I thinks you take your chance from there.
    After saying that, they are selling Ladybird Woolworths outfits for £3.99/£4.99 so they are good for some things.

    I’ve had some baby towels given to me but for the most part I’ll probably end up using my regular family towels.

    I have bought baby towels think they were from Mothercare £12.99 for 3, I bought new baby towels with my first too but only because they were a lot softer than our towels.Im sure some normal new towels will be just as soft though and prob a lot cheaper.
