  • Putting The Fun Back in Bath Time

    When you’re pregnant, bath time with your new baby often conjures up thoughts of a cute rubber ducky floating by, splishing and splashing, laughing and an overall relaxing time to connect with your little one. In reality though, bath time with baby can be more stressful than anticipated, especially when they are in their first few months.

    The logistics of keeping a slippery, wet baby safe, warm and comfortable can all quickly take the fun out of the moment. That’s one of the main reasons we created the Blooming Bath. We wanted to make a comfortable, safe bath for babies while also empowering their parents. In addition, the Blooming Bath has the added benefit of being absolutely adorable.

    We are excited to report that our customers think so too. In a little over one year in business Blooming Bath has been named a finalist in the 2012 SheKnows Parenting Awards Bathtubs category. We are one of four baby bathtubs that are “Making bathing your baby fun!”

    Check out the SheKnows article and read all about the baby bathtubs that are putting the fun back in bath time with baby – and don’t forget to vote for your favorite. Cast your vote for the Blooming Bath baby tub before October 31 and let everyone know how much you love the Blooming Bath!

  • Blooming Bath Perfect for the Tech-Minded

    Here at Blooming Bath, we've always thought of our baby bath design as a revolutionary new and comfortable way to bathe baby. And now, we're happy to say that we're not the only ones who think so. A recent San Francisco Chronicle article featured the Blooming Bath on their list as one of the high-tech baby items that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer might just purchase for her new baby boy due in October.

    The article touted the Blooming Bath as the perfect accompaniment to bath time. "For the times when the Yahoo CEO wants to make a splash at home, this foam-filled bath cushion shaped like a flower fits the bill. Soft for baby yet substantial enough to fill the sink, the Blooming Bath provides a convenient and fun way to bathe baby," the article says.

    Along with the Blooming Bath, other high-tech baby must haves include a Wifi onesie that actually monitors the baby's breathing, temperature and body position and a futuristic looking baby crib that rocks babies up to five months without tipping over and resembles a baby bubble bed.

    Read the full list of high-tech baby must haves, because you don't have to the CEO of a giant online media company to appreciate the latest baby product innovations.

  • Pink and Blue: Have They Always Meant Girl and Boy?

    Today, it seems everything baby related, from clothes, to baby showers and yes, even baby baths follow the same standard – pink is for girls, blue is for boys. But did you know that it wasn’t always that way?

    We stumbled upon a very interesting article from Smithsonian.com recently that delves into the history of the pink/girl, boy/blue phenomenon that seems to have taken over American baby apparel. The story reminded us that it was the custom into the late 1800s to dress baby boys in dresses (and white frilly ones at that) until they were about 7, when they got their first haircut.

    By the early 1900s department stores then took on the role of dictating to parents what was in vogue for children’s fashion. For example this snippet from a 1918 Earnshaw’s Infants Department publication: “The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty is prettier for the girl.”

    It wasn’t until the 1940s that American partialities took over and the colors flip-flopped. And when feminism surged in the 1970s baby clothes became more neutral with girls being dressed in decidedly less-feminine looking outfits. In fact, you couldn't even find pink baby clothing in the Sears Roebuck catalog for two years, the story reports.

    By the late 1980s the advent of gender testing made it possible to know the sex of your baby and then shop for boy or girl “appropriate” items, which caused a surge in pink, blue and “gender neutral” colored items.

    The same color conundrum seems to come into play when the décor of a baby shower comes up. If the parents-to-be are waiting to find out the sex of the baby, then they decorate the party with lime, orange, yellow and grey colors. Some parents are now even surprising their guests with an announcement of the sex of their baby at the shower. We’re hearing an increasingly popular trend is known as a baby reveal baby shower, where the mom-to-be will cut the cake to show either a pink or blue cake inside to signify the coming of a baby girl or boy.

    While using pink and blue is a culturally accepted and easy way to let the world know the sex of your baby, there’s nothing wrong with bathing your baby boy in a pink baby bath, I mean, its not like your sending him to pre-school in a white frilly dress.

  • Is Too Much Bathing Bad for Baby?

    An interesting new report out in Scotland links the frequency of baby baths to a rise in prescription medications for allergies. Since 2002, the number of allergy prescriptions has shot up to nearly 1.5 million from less than 900,000, the report said.

    One of the reasons experts gave for the rise in allergy prescriptions may surprise many American parents: too many baths given to young babies. One expert said that when infants are bathed every night, it can take away important oils that protect baby's skin and can later cause them to develop allergies or skin problems like eczema.

    Experts recommended only bathing young children about once or twice a week to help lesson the advent of future skin problems, allergies and even asthma. When parents do bath their babies, it’s  important to use simple products like a mild soap rather than fancy oils and bubble baths. The report also mentioned a study that showed using peanut-based creams and oils on young babies can also increase their chances of having a peanut allergy down the road.

    Of course, as parents, we all know that babies get messy often, which makes us want to bathe them more. Another option instead of giving your baby a full soap and water bath every night, is to use your Blooming Bath to give your baby a sponge baths when the need arises and a regular bath once or twice a week.
