  • The Year of the Horse is Almost Here

    A brand new year is almost here. The Chinese New Year, based on the lunar calendar, commences on January 31, 2014. Those who are pregnant or will give birth between now and February 18, 2015, will have babies born under the Chinese astrological sign of the Wooden Horse.

    Chinese astrology consists of 12 different zodiac signs (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) represented by animals as well as five different elements (fire, earth, metal, water, wood) that change depending on the year.

    The zodiac sign, in addition to the element a child is born under, is part of what determines their various characteristics. Babies born in the current year, under the snake sign are said to be smart, patient, humble, energetic and humble.

    So what should parents who are expecting little horses expect?

    Much like the animal, babies born under the horse sign are said to be strong-willed and charming. They are also smart and filled with unbridled enthusiasm. In addition, they are said to make easy conversation and be highly organized.

    A recent Huffington Post article said that parents of Horse babies should allow children born under the Horse sign to have lots of time in nature and not to impose too many restrictions on them causing them to rebel. A good sense of discipline is also encouraged to help control the sometimes stubborn horse’s impulses.

    With those characteristics in mind, it’s not surprising that these are a few of the more well known Horses: Condoleezza Rice, Jerry Seinfeld, Jackie Chan and John Travolta.

  • Where's Best in the US to Have a Baby?

    Are you pregnant? Do you think you live in a city with good health services and resources for expectant parents? Well, now you don’t have to wonder any longer thanks to a new list complied by WhattoExpect.com. The site has unveiled its list of 10 Best Cities to Have a Baby, and the results may surprise you.

    What to Expect looked at the 100 largest cities by population in the United States and took into account three benchmarks: access to healthcare services for new babies and parents, the city’s environment for both pregnant moms and new babies, and parental support. Here’s what they came up with:

    #1 San Francisco, California -While the City by the Bay is often mentioned in the media for its high cost of living, researchers at What to Expect found that in addition to cable cars, the city offers new moms and babies ample healthcare opportunities and a great environment.

    #2 Portland, Oregon – The land of rain, flannel shirts and coffee shops is also apparently a great place to be a new parent. What to Expect touted the fact that the Rose City has some of the lowest infant mortality rates and low-birth weight deliveries in the nation.

    # 3 Boise, Idaho – Coming in at third place is the capitol of Idaho. The city’s high number of doulas, midwives and lots of recreational opportunities made it not only a great place for pregnant women, but their new bundles of joy as well.

    Here’s how the rest of the top 10 looked.

    #4 Albuquerque, New Mexico

    #5 Spokane, Washington

    #6 Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota

    #7 Anchorage, Alaska

    #8 Rochester, New York

    #10 Sacramento, California

    If you’re city didn’t make the list, don’t fret. You can also check out WhattoExpect.com’s best small cities to have a baby. In addition, the site also ranked metropolitans in terms of the best: prenatal support, pregnancy-friendly environments and new-mom healthcare.

    No matter which city in the U.S. you may live in, don’t forget that Blooming Bath can always deliver you the best and most comfortable baby bathtub for your new baby.  Order yours today.
