    The event was an amazing opportunity to share the Blooming Bath for babies – the most adorable baby bath on the market - and meet some wonderful parents and parents-to-be.

    Stars  like Scott Wolf, Ian Ziering, Lisa Ling and even singer Nikka Costa stopped by to pose with their new Blooming Baths. Here are just a few of the great shots that were captured at the event. To see more from the event, visit our Facebook Page.

  • Blooming Bath Goes to Hollywood for the Golden Globes

    Blooming Bath ( is headed to Hollywood to debut the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub, to some of the most well known stars of the big screen.

    Blooming Bath was hand-selected as a must-have baby product to be gifted to A-list celebrity moms and dads at the Boom Boom Room's Pre Golden Globe Gifting Suite. The event takes place in Los Angeles January 11th-12th.

    "Blooming Bath is excited to be a part of this star-studded gifting opportunity," said Blooming Bath President Brian Pond. "Celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian have already discovered the comfort and ease of using the Blooming Bath during baby bath time. Now we are excited to introduce this adorable and unique baby bath product to an even broader segment of parents."

    Recently called, "a must-have, smart solution" by Bobbie Thomas of the Today Show, the Blooming Bath for babies is a soft, plush flower that conforms to any sink or tub, providing babies 0-8 months a comfy, convenient and adorable bathing experience.

    TV personality and fashion guru Jayneoni Moore designed the Gifting Suite event so celebrity parents could connect with the hottest, must-have clothing, products and accessories for babies and kids. In addition to celebrities, the Boom Boom Room will host more than 400 REAL moms, military families, members of the media and store buyers.

    Blooming Bath is based in Southern California, the brainchild of four dads who were tired (and a little scared) of handling their slippery babies in hard plastic bathtubs. The Blooming Bath's quick-drying, foam-filled pedals create a safe, soft and supportive pouch that your precious little one will enjoy – guaranteed.

    Blooming Bath's recent accolades include:

  • Parenting Award for "Best Baby Bath Tub" (voted on by parents)

  • Need a Baby Name? Cast your Belly Ballot

    Here at Blooming Bath, we like to share news of the latest baby naming trends when we come upon them. We recently stumbled on a cool baby naming website that makes it easy to pick a list of your favorite baby names, share them with friends and family, get feedback and even win prizes.

    The site is called Belly Ballot and it allows new parents the ability to create a “belly ballot” of the top baby names they are considering for their newborns.  Through the site, you are able to share the list of potential baby names with your friends and family members via social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. People in your social network can provide feedback and suggestions on your names and help you decide which you like best.

    When friends and family vote on the names, the parents-to-be also have the chance to win baby prizes. Once a name is chosen, the parents can announce it though Twitter or Facebook.

    In addition to helping parents figure out the perfect name, the site recently shared some of the baby name data it has collected, resulting in some interesting predictions for baby names in the coming year.

    Here are just of the few things the founders of the website are predicting when it comes to baby names in 2013.

    Multiple names – Parent’s are having a harder time sticking to just a first and a middle name. More and more parents it seems will be giving their children multiple names - up to as many as five!

    Throwback – Just like history often repeats itself, so do names. This year, we are likely to see more babies with names similar to the ones your grandma and grandpa have. A few examples: Charles, Eleanor, Pearl and Frank.

    Different spellings- In an effort to set their children apart, many parents are now spelling their child’s names differently from there traditional spellings. Jaxon and Jaxen have become a popular alternative to the more traditional Jackson. Other examples include Josilyn and Avah.

  • Welcome New Year's Babies

    Each December 31st while the majority of people are counting down to the start of the New Year, mothers in hospitals across the country are giving birth to babies who could become the first babies born in the New Year in their communities.

    New Years Babies are babies who are born on midnight, or within the first few minutes or hours of the New Year. Oftentimes, hospitals will celebrate the arrival of their first New Year Baby of the year by presenting the baby’s family with a gift package or gift certificates. In addition, local media outlets will report the names, weights and time of birth of the first few babies born in the New Year.

    Businesses have long donated baby gifts and merchandise to New Year Babies and their families. Along with getting free baby stuff and a little bit of fame, there are also a number of positive superstitions surrounding New Year’s Babies. One of the most prevalent beliefs is that the baby will be lucky for the rest of its life. It’s also been said that babies who are born on New Year’s have green thumbs and are very fertile.

    Throughout the course of history, there have been a number of well known individuals who are recognized as a New Year’s Baby. These include:

    -       Pope Alexander VI - 1431

    -       Paul Revere – 1735

    -       George Washington Carver – 1860

    -       J. Edgar Hoover – 1895

    -       J.D. Salinger- 1919

    While many new parents may revel in the status of having one of the first babies born of the New Year, there are some advantages to having a baby born before the clock strikes midnight. Parents whose children are born in December can claim a tax deduction on their 2012 income taxes.

    Congratulations to every new parent who is expecting a child in the last few days of December and throughout the New Year!

  • Ways To Commemorate Baby's First Christmas


    Christmas can be a hectic time of year, planning for family gatherings, shopping for the perfect gifts and making the home holiday ready. But many parents who’ve welcomed a new baby into the family this year will want to go the extra step to make baby’s first Christmas one to remember. Here are just a few things you can do to commemorate your baby’s first Christmas.

    Document the Occasion - Whether your preferred media is a scrapbook or a video, one of the absolute best ways to encapsulate the memories of your child’s first Christmas is to document it.

    For scrapbookers, a great idea is to adorn the scrapbook with the child’s name and birthday as well as the year of their first Christmas. You can fill the inside with cards and pictures along with notes about what the child received and memories about their first reactions to the holiday. It will be sure to be a treasured for years to come.

    For the more technologically advanced, taking digital pictures for a slide show or videotaping and compiling a baby’s first Christmas video is a great way to capture all of the details of baby’s first Christmas.  It will also be fun to watch year after year, long after baby has grown up.

    Mark the Season with Bling - Tree bling that is. Many of us still have our own Baby’s First Christmas ornaments that we place lovingly on the tree each year. Buy your baby a personalized baby’s first Christmas ornament that you can hang each year to remember that very first Christmas. Another wonderful tradition is to give your child an ornament every Christmas. When they grow up and move out, pack them up a box of all their Christmas ornaments from throughout the years to hang on their own Christmas tree.

    Start Your Own Traditions - One of the reasons Christmas is so meaningful is because we often look back fondly on the Christmas traditions we grew up with. Maybe it was decorating the tree to certain Christmas songs, putting up the Christmas lights on a set day, or reading a Christmas story together by the fire on Christmas Eve. Whatever your family traditions, it’s always a great idea to pass on old traditions and make new family traditions when we welcoming new members of the family.

    Whatever you do to commemorate your first Christmas with your little ones, we wish you a very Merry Christmas from all of us here at Blooming Bath!

  • Blooming Bath 2012 Year-In-Review

    It may be a cliche, but those of you with little ones at home know how true it really is – time flies. One minute you’re bringing them home from the hospital and the next, they've learned to walk and you’re frantically baby-proofing the entire house.

    In the past year, our little one (The Blooming Bath) has had some big moments too. With just a few weeks left until the official close of 2012, we thought it would be fun to do a Blooming Bath year-in-review, highlighting all of the great milestones that have taken place in the last 12 months.

    Winter ’12 – Within only a few months of Blooming Bath’s official launch, the cuddly, adorable new baby bath tub was featured in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine. Not long after that, we introduced our super soft line of baby washcloths, Puddles.

    Spring ’12 -  By springtime, the Blooming Bath was being recognized as one of the most popular and talked about baby shower gifts. Babble, the foremost authority on everything baby, named the Blooming bath one of its Top 10 Must Have Products for Baby’s First 3 Months.

    Summer ’12 – We like to consider the Summer of 2012 our summer of love. The Blooming Bath got all sorts of love, including being featured on the Today Show and receiving a shout out from celebrity Kourtney Kardashian. All that love also made it necessary for Blooming Bath to move into a new 10,000-square-foot warehouse space in Southern California to keep up with demand. The new space has allowed us to process 2,000 Blooming Bath orders a day! And of course we would remiss if we didn’t mention the introduction of our newest Blooming Bath color over the summer. Our Ivory Blooming Bath made its debut in July.

    Fall ’12 – By fall, we were continuing to spread the love with new distribution partnerships not only in the United States, but throughout Canada and in select countries in Europe. You can find a retailer close to you by going to our retailer locator link. We also were named as the number one Baby Bath in its category by the SheKnows Parenting Awards.



    Looking Ahead – So what’s on tap for 2013? You can expect a lot more excitement from Blooming Bath in the New Year. Be on the lookout for more distribution partners and placements in a broader range of retail outlets, new colors and of course more giveaways. Thanks for a great 2012!

  • There is a New Royal On The Way

    It’s official. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and hubby Prince William have announced their pregnancy. With the the royal couple expecting the arrival of their first child, the online world has become a flurry of excitement, in particular - baby retailers. Since Kate is known for being a style maven whose choices are often copied by thousands around the world - she can wear anything from a pair of synthetic diamond earrings to a simple wrap dress and similar items will fly off the shelves. So it’s not surprising that retailers are predicting a bump in the sale of everything from maternity clothing to onesies due to the royal news.

    Another part of the story that has got people buzzing is the fact that the rules of succession are set to change and if the little bundle of joy turns out to be a girl, she could be in line to be the next Queen of England. The new bill making the change is going through British Government now. So what are some possible names for the new royal tyke?

    Writer Vanessa Van Edwards recently speculated on possible baby names that Kate and William could choose in her recent article.  She looked at the statistics of top baby names in England and Wales as well as names from the royal family history.  The top five guess for a boy were:

    1. George
    2. James
    3. Alfred
    4. Frederick
    5. Edward

    For a potential queen? Vanessa’s top baby girl name picks were:

    1. Sophia
    2. Amelia
    3. Victoria
    4. Elizabeth
    5. Diana

    Let’s just hope Kate get’s a Blooming Bath as a baby shower gift!

  • 2012's Most Popular Baby Names Revealed

    2012 is nearing to a close and with it comes a recap of the year’s most popular baby names. BabyCenter has just put out its wildly anticipated list of 100 Top Baby Names for 2012.

    Although, when you start to read the list, you may feel a bit like you’re experiencing baby deja vu because just like last year, Sophia and Aiden take the number one spots for most popular girl and boy names, respectively.

    Aiden, in fact, has been coming in number one for the past several years, according to BabyCenter. After Aiden, Jackson, Ethan and Liam were listed in second, third and fourth place as the most popular baby names for boys. Emma, Olivia and Isabella followed Sophia as the next three most popular baby names for girls.

    One of the hottest trends the report picked up on was the growing popularity of names found in the 50 Shades books. Christian came in number 52 on the list for popular boys names, while Anna came in at number 34, a shortened version of Anastasia.

    New to the top 10 for girl’s names in 2012 was Mia, while Ruby, Reese, Quinn, Isla and Mila were all listed as newcomers to the top 100 list.

    For boys, Jack jumped the list to earn a spot in the top 10, while the names Leo, Decian, Easton, Lincoln and Harrison all slipped into the top 100 this year.

    Names that lost ground this year and fell out of the top 100 include Abby, Hadley, Keira, Juliana and Katherine for girls and Logan, Bryce, Caden and Josiah for boys.

    And what are those crazily creative celebrities naming their little ones lately? Some of the more odd boy names include Atlas (Anne Heche’s son), Banjo (Rachel Griffiths & Andrew Taylor’s son) and Egypt (Alicia’ Keys son). The daughters of celebrities have it a little more easy. Most of the girl’s names were fairly tame, although there is the occasional Haven (Jessica Alba’s daughter) and Bluebell (Ginger Spice’s daughter) thrown in the mix to make it interesting.
