We really wanted to show everyone just how fun and easy the Blooming Bath is to use in your Kitchen sink. With this in mind we got one of our friends, with her adorable baby, to come on over one Saturday morning and let us her video her using the blooming bath - the resulting video turned out amazing for a home video edited with iMovie. We really hope you like it too. It makes me smile every time I watch it.

Having a baby isn't cheap. In fact, government statistics estimate that the average middle-income family will spend around $10,000 within the first two years having their first baby. That can be hard to swallow, especially in tough economic times, but there are a number of ways to save money when expecting a baby, from using cloth diapers, to breastfeeding, to creating a budget. Below are some great tips for saving money when preparing to welcome your new bundle of joy.
Make a Budget and stick to it. One way to ensure that you don’t go overboard buying cute baby clothes, when you really should be socking money away for necessities like a crib and stroller are to create a budget. Here is a great baby budgeting tool that allows you to calculate both one-time expenses and monthly expenses. The good news is, if you’re deciding to have more than one baby, you will spend far less the second time around.
Breastfeed if you can. There are a couple of ways this will save you money in the long run. First, formula can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $3,000 when totaled for the first year of a baby’s life. In addition, products you will use for breastfeeding, such as breast pumps, are tax deductible.
Using Cloth Diapers that can be used over and over again can save you a bundle over disposable diapers. Baby products, including one-time use diapers can be expensive. Experts say new parents will spend upwards of $2,000 on disposable diapers before a baby is potty trained compared to spending about $300-$700 on various reusable diapers.
Baby Shower Tricks. Here’s a great trick to ensure that your baby shower guests will buy you more useful gifts like diapers and supplies rather than baby clothes – don’t tell them the sex of your baby. If you can’t bear not telling friends and family the sex of your baby, think about creating a baby registry for the items you really need and ask your guests to stick to it. This will help to ensure that your baby shower gifts are the ones you want and need.
Find Deals. When it comes to the day-to-day expenses of having a baby, it’s always a good idea to search your favorite retailers, mommy blogs and product pages for discounts, coupon codes and other deals. The same goes for products like our very own Blooming Bath for babies. We try to partner with a number of different sites to offer deals to you. Check out our Facebook Page to see the latest discounts and giveaways.

Many of our loyal Blooming Bath customers may have stumbled upon our product through their favorite mommy blog, or seeing a cute picture on Pinterest, but they may not know the background of our company.
The Blooming Bath was actually created by Eric Devericks, a father of three, who in his previous life, worked as a cartoonist for the Seattle Times.
When recession hit and he found himself out of a job, he doodled up a brand new idea – a better baby bath. Not only was the Blooming Bath fun and adorable - who wouldn’t want to bathe their baby in a huge flower - it solved a problem. Many new parents, especially dads, are a wee-bit scared to bath a slippery new baby in a sink where any number of things can happen.
The Blooming Bath alleviates those fears by keeping baby protected and safe, nestled among adorable foam-filled flower petals that can conform to any sink or plastic tub.
As Father’s Day approaches, Blooming Bath wants to send out warm Father’s Day wishes to the estimated 70.1 million dads across the country. Thanks for always being there. Thanks for catching those creepy crawlies, teaching us how to ride our bikes and for coming up with adorable products that make our lives just a little bit easier.
Happy Father’s Day!

Blooming Bath is proud to be a Parent Tested, Parent Approved Baby Bath Product Winner. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Parent Tested, Parent Approved organization, it is said to be North America's largest parent tester community, a credible third-party resource for parents that boasts more than 60,000 volunteer parent testers.
The Blooming Bath has received the organization's famous, award-winning seal of approval in the baby bath category. PTPA Founder and CEO Sharon Vinderine says the following about the organization's seal:
“Seeing the PTPA Winner's Seal on a product package or website helps consumers identify products that have been tested and recommended by their peers. It's like shopping with your best friend."
We're happy to report that the testers who evaluated the Blooming Bath had great things to say about it providing both a safe and comfortable bathing environment for baby.
Here is just one of the many positive evaluations from PTPA product testers:
"I did find that my son was comfortable when using this product. I felt that the bathing experience was more safe as there was no slipping and sliding around when he was on the Blooming Bath. I think that by having the padded Blooming Bath in the sink also provided a longer warmer bathing experience as the water absorbed into the mat keeping him more comfortable and a little warmer at the same time. He was absolutely happy when using this product, and I plan on using it as long as I possibly can. Hopefully he doesn't grow too quickly!"
