  • 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 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.

  • Tips For Bathing Baby

    At Blooming Bath, we are happy to have brought so many moms, dads, grandparents and  relatives a more fun and safe way to bathe baby! We have gotten tons of emails, posts on our Facebook page and videos from customers who are singing the praises of the Blooming Bath as a more convenient, easy way to bathe baby. Even the babies agree (just check our our page and see some of the adorable photos)! We’ve also got some great tips from parents along the way for making their experience using the Blooming Bath even better.

    We thought we’d share these tips and some overall baby bathing basics to help all of the new parents out there.

    When you first bring your baby home from the hospital, experts recommend sponge baths until your baby’s umbilical cord stump falls off and the surrounding area heals. The Blooming Bath is perfect to use for those first few sponge baths. You can situate the Blooming Bath petals in a sink or in a plastic tub and warm up the flower with warm water. Drain excess water that has pooled, place baby in and moisten one of our super-soft puddle washcloths to wash baby’s hands, face and body. With baby’s back against the Blooming Bath, they get a full body sponge bath that is comfortable and easy on both baby and parent.

    Once your baby is ready for a bath with more water, the Blooming bath is perfect because it protects soapy, wiggly ones by cradling them within its plush petals. One of our mommy reviewers suggests submerging the entire flower in warm water prior to situating it in the sink or tub so even the tips of the flower stay warm for baby. Another option is to pour warm water on the tips of the flower before placing baby inside. Another tip for those with especially deep sinks is to roll up a towel and place it under the Blooming Bath for even added protection and comfort.

    And of course, anytime you bathe baby, keep in mind these important Safety Precautions:

    Don’t ever leave baby alone in the bath.

    Never put baby in the tub when the water is still running as it can change temperature and burn the baby. Experts suggest setting your water heater temp to 120 F to prevent potential burns.

  • The Most Popular Olympic Baby Names

    The Summer Olympics are set to open next week and we just happened to stumble across a great (and timely) story about the most popular Olympic baby names in history. Since we always love hearing great ideas for baby names, we thought this would be a fun (and patriotic) one to share with the Blooming Bath community.

    The story reported a number of surprising and not so surprising facts when it comes to the names of American athletes who have represented our country in past competitions.

    While the name Michael has most recently come to dominate Olympic headlines, in total, there have only been about 60 Mikes or Michaels that have competed in the Olympics for the United States.

    That number paled in comparison to the number of Johns that have competed in past Olympics. There have been 143 times that there has been a John competing for the United States in the summer games.

    Of the male athletes who will represent the United States at this year’s event, the most popular name is Jake/Jacob. There are also a notable number of Nicks, Matthews (Matts) and Ryans who will be representing the United States across a number of different events.

    When it comes to women athletes of years past, the most popular name has been some form of Kathryn, Kate or Katie, which tied with Susan/Sue as the most popular. A notable second place was Mary.

    When it comes to this year’s female athletes, it seems that the historic trend has held true with seven athletes competing named Kate or Katie and eight women named Sarah (all spelled with the “h” on the end) competing.

    So, which are your favorite Olympic baby names? If your baby is due during the Summer Olympics, some obvious choices would be Summer, Zeus or Olympia. But no matter what name you choose for your baby, you can get them ready for the swimming event early by practicing in their Blooming Bath!
