  • A New Princess Is Born and Her Name Is ...

    A new royal has been born! Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed a brand new baby girl into the family earlier this week.

    The couple recently announced that her name will be Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

    The name is coming as no surprise to Brits who placed bets on such matters. According to a Time story, the chosen name was in the running as the favorite for days, so much so, that bookies are expecting to have to shell out up to 1.5 million British Pounds to those who chose correctly.

    Charlotte also happens to be the middle name of Kate’s sister Pippa. And of course the baby’s additional names are in honor of the Queen and William’s late mother.

    Other names rumored to be in the running for the new princess included: Alice, Alexandra, Victoria or Mary. If the baby was a boy, gamblers were betting on Freddie, Phillip or Arthur.

    Wondering what some of the other most popular baby girls' names in England and Wales are? So were we. According to the Metro UK here are the top 10 favorites from 2013:

    1. Amelia
    2. Olivia
    3. Emily
    4. Ava
    5. Isla
    6. Jessica
    7. Poppy
    8. Isabella
    9. Sophie
    10. Mia

    Wondering how those names compare to the most popular names for baby girls across the pond? Not too differently actually.

    Olivia - Listed as #3 in the US
    Isabella - Listed as #4 in the US
    Mia - Listed as #5 in the US
    Emily- Listed as #9 in the US
    Ava - Listed as #6 in the US

    And what about Charlotte’s new brother George? While his name doesn’t make the favorites list for the US, it does rank in the top 10 for England.

  • 5 Mother's Day Gift Ideas For New Moms

    Mother’s Day is right around the corner. If you are looking for gift ideas for a new mom on your shopping list this year, then you’ve come to the right place.

    Here are 5 suggestions for gifts that you may not have thought about, but that any new mom will appreciate.

    1. Someone Else Doing The Cooking
    New moms often don’t have enough time in the day to sleep, let alone cook a nutritious meal for their family. That’s why a gift certificate for prepared food delivered right to your home, like from Freshology, is a great idea. Maybe mom still wants to cook, but doesn’t have time to go to the store. Then look into Blue Apron, where all of the ingredients and recipes are mailed right to your door.

    2. Someone Else Doing The Cleaning
    Right up there with not having time to cook, new moms will also have a hard time finding time to clean. That’s why buying her home cleaning services from Homejoy or another housekeeping services will be a gift that she won’t be able to stop thanking you for.

    3. Mementos of Being A Mom
    Moms love jewelry and bragging about their new babies. Why not get mom a necklace engraved with baby’s initials on it, or a locket with a photo of her precious little one.

    4. Delivery Services And More
    Most new moms need a lot of stuff. And not just stuff for baby but stuff for her like lotion, snacks. You name it. That’s why a great gift for a new mom is an annual subscription to Amazon Prime. All orders an be shipped fast and for free. Amazon Prime subscriptions also include free streaming of movies and television shows. It’s a win-win gift.

    5. Bathe Essentials
    For new moms, bathing baby the first few times can be a bit stressful. They are just so tiny. Help mom (and baby) relax during bathtime by getting her a Blooming Bath for Babies bathtub.

    Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Florals Are A 2015 Nursery Decor Trend

    In case you didn’t know it, flowers are officially one of the “in” trends for nursery décor in 2015! That’s according to Project Nursery. The crew over at the design site recently highlighted the 10 most popular trends for baby nursery decor in 2015.

    There was a little bit of everything included in the list, from incorporating shades of gold into a room, to tribal patterns, to do-it-yourself wall hangings. But of course, our favorite trend mentioned was the last-but-not-least #10  trend of using “feminine florals” as the inspiration for your baby’s new room.

    As the site says, flowers “are more relevant than ever.”

    We couldn’t agree more. In fact, we’ve already seen lots of adorable flower-inspired décor used in baby rooms.

    Project Nursery suggests incorporating flowers into the nursery by hanging floral wallpaper. And, while you’re tending to all of those blooms in your new nursery, we’d also like to suggest adding in a Blooming Bath for babies bathtub or a few Mini Bloom scrubbies into the mix. Since they come in variety of colors (including hot pink, canary yellow, turquoise) you can mix and match until your heart is content, or find the perfect shade of petals to go with your nursery’s color scheme.

    Here are just a few of some of our favorite flower-inspired nursery designs that we hand-picked via Pinterest. Take some time to stop and enjoy the flowers!

  • Blooming Bath Receives The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval

     

    The coming of spring has also brought news that the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub has been selected to receive The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval!

    Since 1989 The National Parenting Center has been providing parents with comprehensive parenting advice from a panel of experts in the field.

    Each season the group puts out a report featuring the latest and greatest children's products that have been awarded with the Center’s Seal.

    Products like the Blooming Bath are tested in a multi-step process over an eight-week period. Volunteer testers, made up of both parents and children, get the opportunity to play, build, read about and in our case, bath their babies, in the products being considered for the Seal. Volunteers then judge the results by gauging the reactions of the children and the quality of the product.

    Blooming Bath is thrilled that our Blooming Bath for babies bath tub was found worthy of this great award.

    That means the Blooming Bath for babies will be included in the Center’s spring report and featured through its search engine search site.

    That’s exciting news considering 68 percent of mothers say they specifically look for The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval designation on the products they purchase.

  • Celebrate Sleep Awareness With A Blooming Bath Giveaway!

    This week Blooming Bath is helping celebrate the thing new parents hardly ever seem to get enough of and the thing we wish our babies would do more of – SLEEP!

    Blooming Bath is honoring National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Awareness Week, which took place earlier this month, by providing you tips for starting a nightly sleep routine with your babies and a great giveaway! Below are just a few things you can do to help get your new babies to sleep, which means, you’ll likely get more shuteye as well.

    Tips For Starting a Nightly Sleep Routine With Baby

    Start early and at the same time each night. Consistency is key in building a nightly routine that will stick.

    Relax your child with a nightly bath. Not only is giving your baby a bath at night a great time for bonding, it can also help them relax and fall asleep more quickly.

    Once you put baby to bed, use that time to either read or sing them a song to send them into sweet dreams.

    The temperature and lighting in your nursery can play a big part in your baby’s sleep (or lack thereof). Temperature in the room should be set between 65 to 70 degrees and the lighting should mimic that of natural light. So be sure to dim the lights when the sun sets.

    Need a little extra help getting your child to sleep? We thought you might, which is why we decided to team up to offer you a great giveaway that will provide you with everything you need to start a regular bedtime routine. The grand prize package valued at $600 includes:

    Blooming Bath - Baby Bath with Mini Bloom scrubbie!
    Phone Consult with Rebecca Michi - Children's Sleep Consultant - + her book: Sleep and Your Child’s Temperament her book.
    Nested Bean Inc.- Zen Swaddle Premier + Zen Swaddle Classic
    Baby Pibu - Luxury Basics Gift Set (Skin care)

  • Spring Is A Great Time To Start Trying To Have A Baby

    Ready to have a baby? Now might be the best time of year to start trying.

    According to a study written up in The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, sperm apparently are stronger and faster in winter months and the early months of spring.

    The study used 6,455 samples from fertility clinics over a three-year time span – from 2006 to 2009. What they found was the healthiest “swimmers” were produced in the winter months and the first fews of months of spring.

    According to the report, the speed and mobility of sperm can mean a better chance of a couple getting pregnant.

    The researchers encouraged those who are having a hard time conceiving, or those just beginning to start trying to have a baby, to consider the winter and early spring months, since it takes the male body 70 days to produce a sperm cell.

    So, if you are ready to get pregnant, now just may be the time "spring" into action because spring officially beings this Friday, March 20.

    Already have a baby?

    Why not celebrate spring by picking up a spring-colored Blooming Bath for Babies bathtub like Canary Yellow or Green. Spring is also the time of year for baby showers so be sure to stock up!
