One of my favorite fabrics around is bamboo. It is heavenly. Softer than a baby kitten and has all the qualities that a person could want. Recently Tate was blessed with a hooded bamboo kimono from Bamboobino. It is absolutely perfect for bathtimes, visits to the pool, or trips to the beach. And Tate adores his new kimono bath robe as well. My favorite part about the kimono (besides the fabric and cute style!) is that it snaps on. So, no ties...just snaps. And it stays on my active little boy too. :) Each hooded Kimono also comes with a My Own Bath Mitt which is the perfect size for a toddler to use to help bath their baby sister or brother. It's a great way to include them and allow them to help out and learn as well.
Bamboobino offers a TON of unique bamboo products. They have all sorts of clothing and accessories for newborns, toddlers and even moms. Sooo, why is bamboo so wonderful? Check out a few of my favorite reasons:
•It's more absorbent than cotton.
•It is naturally anti-bacterial.
•It's hypoallergenic - suitable for a newborn's sensitive skin.
•Its cashmere-like softness is unlike any other fabric.
•It grows easily without pesticides or fertilizers.
•It takes in five times the volume of greenhouse gasses as an equivalent stand of timber trees and releases 35% more oxygen.
•It needs no replanting.
Bamboo really is an amazing fabric (and don't worry, they don't use the same bamboo that the panda bears eat...so they're still got their food source! :) ). The more I learn about bamboo, the more I like it, and Bamboobino not only has some great information about bamboo on their site, but they carry bamboo products that are sure to keep anybody comfortable, snuggled, warm, and stylish!
Bamboobino would LOVE to give one of you a hooded kimono of your very own! In order to get one entry, head over to Bamboobino and let me know which product caught your eye.
