  • Tips For Saving Money During Baby's First Year

    Are you expecting a baby? Have you recently had a baby? If so then you probably already know that the first year having a new baby in the house can be an expensive one. According to US Department of Agriculture data, the numbers pencil out to an average of $12,000 in the first year.

    A recent story from Wall St. Cheat Sheet offers advice on how parents can shave down some of the costs accumulated in the first year. Here are some of their tips:

    Saving Starts At the Hospital – Perhaps one of the biggest costs of a new baby is the delivery at the hospital. Do your research in advance and find out exactly what your insurance plan covers so you can budget before baby comes. One way some moms have chosen to save money is by skipping the cost of getting an epidural and having a natural birth. Be sure to discuss your options with your doctor to find a birth plan that is both economical and comfortable for you.

    Choose Baby Food Wisely – Another huge chunk of new baby budget comes in the form of food. Breastfeeding is one way to save a lot of money on baby formula and many experts will tell you it’s more nutritious for baby as well.  If you have a food processor, it’s also easy to make your own baby food rather than buying baby food by the jar.

    Check Out Consignment Shops – Babies grow out of things at a rapid rate and we’re not just talking about clothes. Baby swings and car seats also have size restrictions. Be sure to do your research before you buy and try to get things that will last the longest for your growing baby. Be sure to talk to other parents whose babies have grown out of items to see if they are willing to sell or give away items that are no longer used. Baby-specific consignment shops also offer great prices on essential items like high chairs, cribs and strollers.

    Be a Blooming Bath Product Tester and Get Free Stuff - Do you live in the San Diego area? If so and you have babies between the ages of 2 months and 6 months, you can earn free Blooming Bath baby products if you come to our Carlsbad office and test out our new Blooming Bath baby products.

  • Spring Means Free Shipping on Blooming Bath Products

    It’s probably no surprise that spring is one of our most favorite times of the year here at Blooming Bath. Spring is most commonly associated with renewal, regrowth and rebirth. It’s when the flowers begin to bloom and a number of soon-to-be mommies enjoy a showering of gifts at their own baby showers.

    Spring isn’t all rainbows and sunshine though, as many of you who are frantically trying to finish seasonal projects know, such as planting your garden, spring cleaning or the dreaded preparation of taxes. Spring can be a hectic and even expensive time.

    To help you cope, Blooming Bath is offering all of our customers free shipping on Blooming Bath products now through April 15. That means you can stock up on a full season’s worth of baby shower gifts, or just save some money on a Blooming Bath for a favorite baby in your life.

  • Trace Your Baby's Name Across the Nation

    Here at Blooming Bath we love it when people create a new take on an old idea (just like we did with our baby bath tubs and baby bath scrubbies). That why we thought it would be fun to share with you a really cool interactive map that takes a baby name and traces its popularity throughout the United States over the last century.

    Simply type in a baby name, or your own name (like we did) and watch as the states light up showing how the popularity of the name spread throughout the nation from 1910 all the way up to present day.

    The map’s creator, Brian Rowe, compiled the map from census data to show the history of more than 29,000 baby names. In addition to creating a mighty fun tool, he also found some interesting correlations between names and regional clusters. One example is the name Terrence, which started being used in the Midwest in the mid-1900s and decades later became a baby name chosen in the southern states.

    Take your baby's name, or your name for a spin on the map and see what you discover about its history.

  • Olympic Inspired Baby Names

    The Sochi Winter Olympics are in full swing. And is it just us or have you been noticing all of the amazingly original names the Olympians competing in this year’s events have? It got us thinking (of course) about baby names! Here are just a few of our favorites not only from this year’s roster of Olympians but also from Winter Olympics past. We’re curious if any of these names will start showing up on more birth certificates in the months to come. Might you be playing with a little Torin or Lolo in the snow next winter?

    Sochi Olympians

    Sugar – You just might not be able to find a more perfect (or cute) name for a winter athlete or your new bundle of joy, than Sugar.

    Anders – With a Nordic inspired name like Anders, you’d expect this baby to be amazing at snowsports.

    Lolo – Not only is Lolo one of the more fun names featured in this year’s roster of athletes, the Olympian herself is just one of a handful who has competed in both the summer (track and field) and winter (bobsled) Olympics.

    Tucker –Tucker is adorable as a baby name, but it is also the moniker of someone brave enough to conquer the luge, a sport where athletes hit speeds of nearly 90 mph.

    Javier – If this beautiful name sounds exotic it’s because it belongs to a Spanish figure skater.

    Bode - While most know this name as the famous US alpine skier, what you might not know is that Bode is actual his middle name. His first name is Samuel. Both are great names for a new baby boy.

    Aja – This name, pronounced Asia, automatically conjures up an images of adventure (think bobsledding down a curvy track).

    Torin – Torin is the name of not one but two different athletes in this year’s Sochi Olympics. One is competing in cross-country skiing and one in freeskiing.

    Notable Winter Olympians of the Past

    We’re guessing you can not only guess the last names of these famous past Olympians, but the sport they won their metals in.

    Kristi
    Dorothy
    Brian
    Bonnie
    Shaun
    Apolo
    Picabo

    What's your favorite Olympic inspired baby name?
