DOCK & BAY microfibre towels

Do you hate how long normal beach towels take to dry ? or even worse, sand all over your damp towel? If your answer is yes then you need to try Dock & Bay’s microfibre towels.

Andy and Benno designed the Dock & Bay towels with some great features:

* They’re the biggest on the market
* They fold up really small
* Sand slides right off due to the smooth texture
* They’re absorbent and smooth
* They dry up to 3 times faster than normal towels

We were sent a bundle that included XL and L towels as well as their mini ponchos – something for everyone in the family.

We’ve used the towels while camping, at home around the paddling pool and whilst away on holidays – here’s how we got on.

The first outing for the Mini Poncho and 2 of the towels was a camping trip. This product is perfect for camping or when going travelling. They’re small and take up no space in your bag and dry quickly! They’re also really trendy and the kids LOVE them

The second outing was on our family holiday to the Costa Del Sol in July – the weather was perfect and we spent a lot of time around the pool. The girls all loved their ponchos which were perfect to pop them in whilst they had a snack in between swim sessions.
We did make it to the beach one morning but the girls weren’t fans of the cold sea so we aborted that mission and went back to the pool. Before we left i threw a bucket of sand on my towel to see what would happen when i picked it up, and just like the website says, it all slid off

Not only do they sell towels and ponchos for the kids, they also sell mens swim shorts that are made from 100 % recycled plastic bottles. Their Active collection is made up of 30% recycled plastic bottles. Last year they replaced all plastic bags used while transporting their goods and have replaced them with 100 % biodegradable materials

Dock & Bay have a brilliant ethos and are all about taking risks, living your best life all whilst building a more sustainable business.

Dock & Bay featured on Dragons Den in 2017 and received 3 offers (Tej Lalvani, Touker Suleyman and Deborah Meadon). They are now working with Deborah to ‘change the face of towels forever!’.

A year with Konfidence – they have swimming with babies, toddlers and older children covered!

We were lucky enough to be sent a Konfidence bundle towards the end of last year, here’s how we got on.

Konfidence

Reviewers Mum Bronwyn and baby Georgia.

We used the Konfidence Babywarma Baby Swimsuit when Georgia went swimming for the first time. As first time parents we were nervous to put our 4 month old in the water and even though the pool was heated we wanted to make sure she didn’t get cold. The Babywarma is made of a high-grade soft neoprene with velcro at the top bottom and sides to ensure a snug fit. It was perfect and Georgia loved her first swim. These are available from £16.99 in a variety of colours.

When we got back from our holiday we had to keep up the swimming as Georgia just loved the water – Our local leisure centre has a teaching pool and they had an under 5’s swim which i thought i’d try. It was daunting thinking of how i was going to achieve this on my own but i packed the Babywarma and the Roll & Go Baby changing mat and we were off.

The changing mat is made of soft cushioned neoprene and had a non slip backing. I had to change her on the counter top so it was great that the mat didn’t slip and slide around. We’ve since taken up swimming lessons and the Roll & Go mat gets packed every week. At only £9.99 you really cant go wrong!

Georgia is now a year old and on our recent family holiday to the South of France she tried out the Floatsuit.  She still needs a bit of practise to get her balance wearing it unaided. Perhaps she’s a bit young so will give it another try on our next holiday when she’s a bit older.

The Floatsuit is on sale a the moment, get yours directly from Konfidence

They have a great range not only for babies but everyone in the family. From children and adult swim jackets, wetsuits and neoprene t-shirts to neoprene beach boots and UV hats. If you are planning a holiday near the beach or somewhere with a pool make sure you check out the Konfidence website before you go.

Looking forward to baby’s next year with Konfidence!
