  • Celebrate Spring With 20% off the Ivory Blooming Bath

    Have you heard? Blooming Bath is celebrating spring with a special Blooming Bath sale. For a limited time, we are offering 20 percent off our ivory color Blooming Bath. To take advantage, simply use the code “spring20” at checkout.

    The ivory color Blooming Bath for babies is a perfect gender-neutral color choice for both baby boys and girls and makes a great gift for parents who have decided not to find out the sex of their baby prior to delivery, which, according to recent statistics is just over 50 percent of people.

    A Gallup Poll from 2007 found that the public is divided as to whether or not they would want to know the sex of their baby before hand. More than 6 in 10 American women ages 18-34 said that they would like to know the sex of the baby before it is born. Parents who already have children were also more likely to want to find out the gender of their child. Overall, 51 percent of Americans polled said that they would wait until the baby is born, while 47 percent said they wanted to be surprised.

    If you are one of those in the majority who would like to be surprised, there are a number of good reasons to endure the suspense. Here are just a few:

    1. It makes the birth all that more exciting – When you’ve been waiting nine months to find out whether you are having a little prince or princess, the anticipation is all the better once you find out. Your friends and family members will also be more excited to take part in the birth.

    2. Your baby won't be typecast -  Especially when it comes to baby clothing, you won’t be inundated with a multitude of cute pink dresses (that your baby will probably never wear before growing out of them) or all blue attire for that matter.

    3. It’s fun to guess -   Not knowing your baby’s gender leaves open the chance for everyone to be able to test out their own wives tale or intuition on how to determine if your are carrying a boy or girl.

    4. You get to explore with fun colors- Not knowing means you can center your baby’s nursery theme and clothing around the entire rainbow of colors and not just pink and blue. It also means that your little one can get an adorable ivory Blooming Bath for babies at 20 percent off. Don’t forget to use the code “spring20” at checkout!

  • Spring-Inspired Baby Names for the First Day of Spring

     

    Today is the first day of spring! At Blooming Bath, when we think of spring, we naturally think of blooming flowers, warm weather and of course, baby announcements. While the highest number of births in the U.S. happen in the month of September, it’s no surprise that spring is the time most people find out they are pregnant and start planning for the arrival of their new bundles of joy.

    Part of the planning process is to settle on the perfect baby name. In the spirit of the first day of spring, we wanted to share SheKnows’ list of spring-inspired baby names. While the girls names are largely inspired by the flowers of the field, the boys names reflect many of the natural elements associated with the season. Which one would you pick for your new baby?

    Spring Girl Names

    Lily, Rose, Tulip, Violet, Petunia, Daffy (short for Daffodil), Azalea, Iris, Ivy, Marigold, Dahlia, Lilac, Primrose, Leilani, Orchid, Fleuer, Lotus, Calla

    Some of the non-garden variety spring names include: April, Spring and of course, March

    Spring Boy Names

    Boys names meaning "spring" or "lives by the spring" include: Aviv, Kelby, Kingswell, Weldon and Maxwell

    Whether you are looking forward to the arrival of your own spring baby, or celebrating someone else’s, nothing is more adorable (or spring-like) than a baby bathing in a super plush and comfortable Blooming Bath. Order yours today!

  • O Canada! You're Talking About the Blooming Bath

    Buzz around the Blooming Bath has been growing just like those little ones and most recently, it’s our neighbors to the north who’ve been talking up the most adorable and comfortable way to bathe baby.

    The Blooming Bath was most recently featured on Canada’s Breakfast Television Toronto morning show.  Parenting expert Nanny Robina Uddin included the Blooming Bath in her list of the Latest Baby & Kid’s Gadgets, touting how the Blooming Bath provides “a little cushion for baby’s tush” and how it’s an ideal solution for bathing new babies in the sink. With more than 30 years as a nanny and governess on her resume, we know she’s pretty choosy about recommending new baby products, so we’re excited to have made the cut.

    Prior to our Canadian television debut, Canadian mom bloggers and magazines have also been singing the praises of the Blooming Bath to their fellow Canucks. Tennille, a mom and Saskatchewan-based owner of the Feisty Frugal & Fabulous blog boasted not only of how comfortable the bath is for both mom and baby, but also how perfect it is for photos.

    Canadian Family Magazine, the leading online parenting destination for all things baby and family was also kind enough to talk up the Blooming Bath baby bathtub in a recent piece, calling it a Simple Solution to the Uncomfortable Baby Bathing Problem.

    With so much press in Canada, we wanted to make sure that all of our Canadian customers know how to get their hands on their own Blooming Bath. While we ship to Canada directly from our website, we also have a network of distributors and retail establishments – from Vancouver to Toronto – that sell the Blooming Bath on our behalf. Mastermind Toys, Westcoast Kids and Buy Buy Baby are just a few examples.

    If you live in Canada and are looking for the best way to buy your Blooming Bath for your baby or for your next baby shower, be sure to visit our store locator page to find a store near you!

  • Blooming Bath ♥'s Operation Shower

     

    At Blooming Bath, we love all things baby shower-related, from talking baby shower themes and decorations, to hunting for the best baby shower gifts, to finding tips on baby shower registries. So when we heard about the nonprofit organization Operation Shower, whose motto is: “Supporting our military families by delivering baby showers – one amazing shower at a time,” we just had to get in on the celebration.

    For those of you who haven’t heard about Operation Shower, it’s an amazing nonprofit organization that helps provide baby showers for military families to ease the stress of deployment.

    As anyone whose been pregnant knows, expecting a baby can be stressful enough for moms-to-be, but for women in military families the stress can be compounded by the deployment of spouses and living far from immediate family.

    In March 2007, LeAnn Morrissey wanted to give back to the military. She was asked to send cards to 4 women who were expecting babies while their spouses were deployed. She did them one better and sent the women a baby shower in a box. Soon, Operation Shower was born. The organization started hosting baby showers for military families providing support and high-quality products. As of January 2013, the organization has hosted baby showers for more than 1,000 women and families. They’ve head 30 unit-wide showers on bases across the country.

    National sponsors like Babies R Us and others have also signed on to support the organization.  Blooming Bath is also proud be a supporter of the organization, having recently participated in the organization’s Hawaii baby shower, where the Blooming Bath for babies was just one of a number of amazing items donated to expecting military moms.

    Congratulations to all the military families out there expecting new babies. We love our troops and their families!
