  • September Is Baby Safety Month

    In addition to September being prime time back to school time, it also happens to be Baby Safety Month. The Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association (JPMA) designated the month as such more than two decades ago as a way to teach both parents and caregivers on how important it is to safely choose and use baby products.

    In honor of Baby Safety Month, Blooming Bath thought it would be a good idea to go over some of the best ways to keep your baby safe during bathtime. Whether you bathe your baby in the sink or the tub, handling a wet, slippery baby can often pose challenges, if not downright dangers! Especially for new parents, a few tips can go a long way when it comes to baby safety.

    One of the best ways to keep your baby safe during bathing is to use the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub. The soft, cushioned petals keep your baby in a cocoon of luxurious softness that keeps them protected from hard surfaces and other objects like sink faucets or hard sink or tub edges. Another great thing about the Blooming Bath is that it props your baby up keeping them supported above the water.

    Which brings us the most important safety tip for baby bathing, NEVER leave your baby unattended during bathtime. Even when there is very little water, there could still be a chance for drowning if a baby is left alone. Experts suggest always keeping a hand on baby during bath time.

    In addition to drowning dangers, another common safety concern during bath time is using the appropriate water temperature for bathing. To be extra careful, think about setting your hot water heater to 120 degrees F so the water temperature can't get hot enough to cause burns. Also, be sure to fill the bath and test the water with your wrist before putting baby in. If you are worried about baby getting too cold while in the tub, a handy solution is to increase the temperature in the room you are bathing them in rather than the water temperature.

  • Getting Babies Ready for Back to School

    In case you missed all of the adorable photos being posted on Facebook and Instagram this week by proud parents, the back to school season has officially arrived. While your little one may not be quite ready for a backpack and crayons yet, it’s never too soon to start getting your baby ready for school and learning through your daily activities and interactions.

    Here are just a few things that the National Center for Infants, Toddlers and Families recommends parents do to get their babies and infants ready for learning.

    Communication and Language

    When it comes to your baby’s language and communication skills, one of the best things parents can do is to read, sing and tell stories to their babies from an early age. Doing so helps them understand words and ideas early on. Babies typically start using words around the age of one. When baby’s start talking, and even before, it’s important for parents to repeat words, sounds and phrase back to their children and have back and forth conversations.

    Thinking Skills

    One of the best ways to get your infants to start thinking is by asking them questions and having them use logic to think through their answers. Using play time and daily activities is a great way to do this. Using bath time to help them understand the difference between wet and dry, toys floating or sinking or water being hot or cold are all perfect opportunities to teach your little ones new concepts.

    Self Confidence

    Before the back to school bell rings for your child, instilling a sense of self confidence from a young age will do wonders for their long-term education. You can help your child along by being encouraging and supportive while letting them work through the answers to problems. Praise for tasks well done also goes a long way.

  • Tips For Teething and a Giveaway!

    Is your baby crankier than usual, drooling more, or grabbing objects to chew on? If you answered yes, then chances are your baby is going through teething. Most babies hit the teething stage around the 6-month mark and it can be a tough time not only for babies who experience tender gums and mouth soreness, but also for parents who have to come up with creative ways to soothe irritable babies.

    Here are just a few tricks for helping get baby through teething:

    Apply Pressure – Experts say that applying a little pressure to the gums with your finger or a piece of gauze can help ease the pain of teething for baby.

    Keep Dry – More drool means more chances of skin irritations. Keep a cloth handy to dry drool quickly before it can cause problems.

    Solid Foods- Teething time can be a good time to start getting baby used to chewing on solid foods. Try offering babues vegetables like peeled carrots or cucumbers, but remember to keep close watch in case of choking.

    Try Teething Tools – Providing babies with teething tools like Teething Bling -teethable safe jewelry - that is fashion-approved by mom and baby safe for teething and playing can put a smile on both mom and baby’s faces.

  • 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

    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.

    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.
