  • Tips For Getting Baby to Sleep

    We’ve always known that the Blooming Bath for babies is super comfortable, but more and more we are hearing (and seeing) from parents that our cozy baby bathtubs are so relaxing for baby, that they often fall asleep during bath time. See the above photo of little Ethan for the latest adorable example.

    We know for new parents, getting baby to sleep through the night really is a dream come true. So besides bath time in a cozy, plush flower, what other things can parents try to get their babies to sleep after Goodnight Moon? Here are a few suggestions from Parents.com:

    Avoid caffeine – You’re likely not giving your newborn coffee or soda quite yet, but moms who drink these caffeine-loaded drinks and then breastfeed their babies are inadvertently transferring some of that caffeine on to the little one whose up at 3 a.m. and won’t go back to sleep. Try cutting out caffeine from your diet to see if results in better sleep for baby.

    Spa Treatment – After a relaxing bath in the Blooming Bath for babies, give your little one a bit of the spa treatment with a mini massage to help further relax her for bedtime. At least one study has shown that new babies who were given a massage at bedtime went to sleep more quickly and more soundly than those who did not.

    Lighting – Experts recommend tapping into babies’ natural biological rhythms by mimicking natural light cycles. For instance, in the morning when it’s time to wake up, expose babies to light soon after awaking up by going outside or sitting near a sunny window. When the sun goes down in the evening, lower the lights in the rooms of your home using dimmer switches. This will help prepare baby for sleep far before it is time.

    Temperature – Experts say the best temperature for babies to sleep at is in rooms between 65 and 70 degrees. Use a thermostat to set the correct temperature for baby, or adjust by using a fan or opening a window.

  • Baby Bath Toys For Splishing n Splashing

    At Blooming Bath, we know all about how fun bath time with your baby can be, but sometimes it’s even more fun when you add a few baby bath toys into the mix.

    Here is a look at some clever, cute and classic baby bath toy designs that you can try with your Blooming Bath for babies bathtub.

    Dunck
    This 3-set of stackable ducks not only float, they also double as rinse cups for parents. Babies will also have fun pouring water from them and “swimming” them around in the tub.

    Squirty Bath Puppets
    Add a little adventure to bath time with these adorable terry cloth bath puppets that squirt water. You can get a full cast of characters because the puppets come in sea dragon, alligator, seahorse and shark shapes.

     

    Water Flutes
    Nothing is more relaxing than a bubble bath and some music right? What about when your child is the one making the music? When your baby and Blooming Bath graduate to the big tub, treat your toddler to these water flutes. The flutes can be filled with varying amounts of water to create different sounds. Song sheets are even included!

    Rubber Ducky
    Bath time just wouldn’t be complete without a rubber ducky or two bobbing around. These days you can pretty much find a rubber ducky in any theme or color under the sun. Our favorite is still the classic yellow rubber ducky, it coordinates perfectly with the canary yellow Blooming Bath.

    What are your favorite baby bath toys?

  • Blooming Bath for Babies Featured on Oklahoma Live!

     

    Just before the Fourth of July, the Blooming Bath made a debt on KSBI’s Oklahoma Live morning show!

    The show featured mom blogger Stephanie Clinton of hugskissesandsnot.com who was sharing with the Oklahoma City viewing audience her favorite baby teething products.

    As all of us who’ve gone through the teething process with our babies knows, it’s always a good idea to have a few go-to products on hand right around the three to four month mark when those chompers start appearing.

    Along with sharing her favorite teething solutions (Mommy Bliss Gripe Water, Kids Relief Oral Gel and Kid’s Spry Tooth Gel with Xylitol) Stephanie just couldn’t resist showing off her canary colored Blooming Bath at the end of the segment.

    “This is my favorite thing. I love this. Look at this cute thing!”

    She went on to share how cozy the Blooming Bath for babies is, especially for new parents who worry about their new babies slipping and sliding around in the sink or tub.

    The Blooming Bath is suitable for use with babies up to six months in the sink and then can also be used by infants who graduate onto the bigger tub, but still want the comfort and protection of Blooming Bath’s soft petals.

    Stephanie said that as soon as the show was over her Blooming Bath was going to be sent to her friend with a six-week old. Stephanie, like many other parents we've talked to said she wished the Blooming Bath was around when her kids were babies.

  • Baby Names Analyzed By Age

    When it comes to picking your baby’s name there are a variety of places to draw your inspiration, from popular movies and television shows, to baby name websites, to your own family tree. Now, there is another new twist on how to evaluate potential names – by the age of individuals with a certain name.

    A recent article on FiveThirtyEightLife took data from the Social Security Administration and charted it against actuarial tables to find out how many living Americans have a particular name. The results were particularly interesting, especially when it came to female names.

    The authors found that a name like Brittany only came into vogue within the last few decades, starting in the early 1980s. Which means most Brittanys you meet likely won't be much older than 25. The article also looked at the median ages of women with the 25 most common names.

    Most Lisa’s are in their 40s, while most Dorothy’s (not surprisingly) are closer to the 70 age-range. Anna, is one female name that has spanned the decades with the median age of people living who have the name being 31.

    Perhaps most interesting to new parents are the names of the younger set. When it comes to young female names, Eva, Mia, Sophie, Ella and Isabella are predominately in the 5 to 8 year-old range. For boys, Mason, Jayden, Liam and Aiden were between the ages of 4 and 8 years old.

    One take away is, if you want to avoid your child entering preschool with 5 other kids with the same name, check out some of the article's findings, or you can just name your daughter Gertrude. The median living age for that name is 80, with 25 percent being over 87!

  • Blooming Bath Called a Must-Have for Siblings

    Our friends over at Miss Frugal Mommy have discovered the Blooming Bath for Babies bathtub and were kind enough to write this lovely review about our comfy baby bath tub.

    Miss Frugal Mommy is expecting baby number 3 (congrats!) and has been prepping her older children on how to be a good big sibling to the new arrival, including practicing how to give their new little brother or sister a proper bath. The kids have been practicing with baby dolls and, according to mom, it's not just the younger members of the family who are looking forward to the ease of bathing the new baby in the Blooming Bath.

    "As my memory recalls, bath time wasn’t always the most fond experience for my children when they were newborns. There are so many things you must worry about in order to keep your baby happy and content during baths and I can’t imagine trying to add two siblings to the mix. However, the Blooming Bath has officially put all my worries aside and I am greatly looking forward to stress free bathing with the new baby and helpful siblings," Miss Frugal Mommy writes.

    She goes onto say that in addition to creating a more relaxing baby bath time, the Blooming Bath will allow for more family bonding and less time spent worrying about adjusting baby, which had been the case using old-school, slippery plastic bath tubs.

    "I truly believe that this is a must-have baby product, especially if there are younger siblings," she says.

    You can read Miss Frugal Mommy's full review here. And don't forget that the Blooming Bath for babies makes a great shower gift, especially for mommies with bigger kids who want to help bathe the new baby.

  • Baby Bathing Tips from Blooming Bath

    Here at Blooming Bath, we’ve become somewhat of an expert in the art of baby bathing techniques, picking up tips not only from our loyal customers, but also from hours of practice. Whether you are a seasoned grandma, or a brand new parent, here are some baby bathing tips that everyone from novices to experts can appreciate.

    Baby Bathing Tips

    - Before you even turn on the tap, think about the room temperature that you are bathing your baby in. Is it chilly? Babies lose heat quickly so it’s always a good idea to turn up the heat in the kitchen (if you are bathing baby in the sink) or bathroom to around 75 or 80 degrees F prior to the bath.

    - Set your water heater temperature to 120 degrees F so you don’t have to worry about accidental burns, which can happen at the factory setting of 140 degrees F.

    - Before getting the tub and water ready, be sure to get everything you’ll need (towels, soaps, etc.) in near proximity to the tub so you never have baby out of your sight.

    - Never put your baby in the bath while filling up the tub or sink because the temperature can change and get too hot, or the water level can get too deep.

    - Make sure the bathwater is comfortably warm by testing with your wrist or elbow. Keep in mind that babies and toddlers generally prefer their tub water cooler than adults do.

    - Be mindful of the types of bubble baths and soaps that you use on baby, being sure to choose baby-safe options as to not irritate their sensitive skin.

    - Experts recommend only bathing newborns 2-3 times per week, instead opting for more frequent hand and diaper-area cleanings. (If your baby’s umbilical cord is still intact, avoid baths altogether and use baby wipes or washcloths).

    - The most important tip: Never leave baby unsupervised in the tub and always keep at least one hand on baby.

    Benefits of Baby Bath Time

    The benefits of bath time are numerous. Not only is baby bath time a great way for parents and baby to bond and create a regular routine, bathing babies (especially in the comfy Blooming Bath) is a great way to calm fussy little ones. A warm bath before bedtime can also help prepare baby for a restful night of sleep, something all parents crave in the first few months of parenthood.
