  • Baby Talk From Around the World

     

    Where in the world do you live? Chances are, whatever your answer, it’s likely a place you can either buy or have a Blooming Bath delivered to your door.

    Blooming Bath is proud to have cultivated relationships with a large number of baby products distributors not only across the United States, but around the world. We now have retailers stocking the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub in more than 15 countries and on four continents.  Want to find a retailer fast? Click here to find your closest Blooming Bath retailer.

    In honor of our blooming growth, we thought it might be fun to share a bit of baby-themed slang from some of the countries you can find our baby bathtubs.

    Australia
    In Australia, instead of being pregnant, women there are “Up the Duff” when they are with child.  While a baby could be referred to as a “rug rat,” a young child is called a “kiddiwink”. Mom’s Down Under also can be seen strolling with their babies in a “pusher” instead of a stroller. Finally, while in Australia if someone asks if your baby wants a “Dummy” they aren’t being insulting, they are simply inquiring if your baby wants a pacifier.

    UK
    In the UK if your little one spits up, its called a “posset”. If he’s having a bad day, instead of a tantrum, he’ll throw a “wobbly” and may need to be put down for a nap in his “cot” a.k.a crib. Later in the day, mom may want to take him for a walk in his “push chair” but of course, she shouldn’t forget to change his “nappies” beforehand.

    Canada
    In Canada instead of giving your baby a pacifier, you may give her the aptly named, “soother”. You’ll also be pushing her in a “pram” rather than a stroller.

    What do you call different baby bath tubs in the country you live in? Let us know!

  • Blooming Bath: Unlike Any Other

    The Blooming Bath for babies has been called a lot of things: adorable, ingenious, even a godsend, but recently our friends over at Pregnancy Magazine applied another description to our comfy baby bath – “unlike any other tub.”

    They were so right. We spend so much time at Blooming Bath focusing on how cute and comfy babies are in our tub that we sometimes take for granted how unique our little invention really is when compared to other baby bath tubs on the market today. The Blooming Bath for babies bath tub is the only tub of its kind that takes into account the comfort and needs of both new babies and new parents. And, it’s a “tub” that your kids will love even after they grow out of the baby stage.

    Unlike traditional hard plastic tubs, the Blooming Bath tub for babies is a made of plush materials that cradle baby and keep him or her safe and supported during bath time in the kitchen or bathroom sink. The cushioned, anti-microbial flower is also a breeze for parents to clean, wash and dry after each use so it’s always ready for the next time.

    Since Pregnancy Magazine it is the place first-time moms go to get trusted information about new baby products, we were pretty excited to get another mention on their website and in their magazine pages.

    Along with pointing out the Blooming Bath’s uniqueness in the baby bath segment, the magazine also pointed out how, “The Blooming Bath keeps baby in the water and comes up high enough to support baby’s head, cushioning hard or pointed surfaces that might harm baby while in the sink.”

    To find out just how different the Blooming Bath is from other tubs for babies, we encourage you to try it for yourself. You can choose from four adorable Blooming Bath colors including: Hot Pink, Turquoise, Canary Yellow and Ivory.

    Like Pregnancy Magazine writer Andrea Garabedian says, “it’s a unique accessory you can use to bathe baby.”  It also makes a great baby shower gift!

  • Safe Baby Bathing Essentials

    As a new parent, you want the best for your baby, but sometimes it’s hard to know what are the best products to use, especially when it comes to what shampoos and soaps you should use during bath time.

    Since baby’s skin is more sensitive than mom and dad's, it’s always a good idea to use soaps made from all-natural products, specifically created for babies.

    HollywoodLife.com recently put together a list of their favorites baby washes and shampoos to use during baby bath time in the bathtub.  Here are just a few of their favorites:

    -       Yes To Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo + Body Wash – As the name suggests, this all-in-one baby shampoo and body wash is made from natural ingredients include carrots, melons and Vitamin E. Baby will love the way it foams and parents will love that it is tear-free and hypoallergenic.

    -       Burts Bees Shampoo and Wash – Always a favorite, Burt's Bees offers a natural, plant-based shampoo and wash made specifically for baby. It includes a number of natural ingredients including: aloe, oat flour and soy proteins. Burt's Bees baby products are included in the Blooming Bath Bathing Kit and can be purchased along with your Blooming Bath on the Blooming Bath website.

    -       Noodle & Boo Soothing Body Wash – This baby bath wash has allantoin and milk proteins to safely clean your baby without taking away the skin's moisture. It’s soap-free, tearless and is said to rebalance natural ph levels in the skin.
