  • Blooming Bath and Moby Wrap Team Up for Giveaway!

    Some things just go well together. Peanut butter and jelly, Burt and Ernie and now, Blooming Bath and Moby Wrap. Blooming Bath is excited to announce that we are teaming up with Moby Wrap for our latest giveaway promotion.

    If you’re not familiar with the company, Moby Wrap was started by parents (just like Blooming Bath) looking for the perfect baby carrier. What they came up with was a solution made of some of the softest cotton fabrics available. The wrap distributes the baby’s weight evenly creating a comfortable fit for both the wearer and for baby.

    Similarly, Blooming Bath was started by a group of dads looking for a better baby bathing solution. What they came up with was the adorable, comfortable and supportive Blooming Bath for babies bathtub flower. The Blooming Bath’s soft petals support and comfort baby and parents throughout bath time.

    Now your baby can be comfortable and supported both during bath time and while on the go when you enter to win our latest giveaway. The lucky winner will receive a Moby Wrap and a Blooming Bath (winner gets to choose their color preferences).

  • Baby Talk From Around the World

     

    Where in the world do you live? Chances are, whatever your answer, it’s likely a place you can either buy or have a Blooming Bath delivered to your door.

    Blooming Bath is proud to have cultivated relationships with a large number of baby products distributors not only across the United States, but around the world. We now have retailers stocking the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub in more than 15 countries and on four continents.  Want to find a retailer fast? Click here to find your closest Blooming Bath retailer.

    In honor of our blooming growth, we thought it might be fun to share a bit of baby-themed slang from some of the countries you can find our baby bathtubs.

    Australia
    In Australia, instead of being pregnant, women there are “Up the Duff” when they are with child.  While a baby could be referred to as a “rug rat,” a young child is called a “kiddiwink”. Mom’s Down Under also can be seen strolling with their babies in a “pusher” instead of a stroller. Finally, while in Australia if someone asks if your baby wants a “Dummy” they aren’t being insulting, they are simply inquiring if your baby wants a pacifier.

    UK
    In the UK if your little one spits up, its called a “posset”. If he’s having a bad day, instead of a tantrum, he’ll throw a “wobbly” and may need to be put down for a nap in his “cot” a.k.a crib. Later in the day, mom may want to take him for a walk in his “push chair” but of course, she shouldn’t forget to change his “nappies” beforehand.

    Canada
    In Canada instead of giving your baby a pacifier, you may give her the aptly named, “soother”. You’ll also be pushing her in a “pram” rather than a stroller.

    What do you call different baby bath tubs in the country you live in? Let us know!

  • Blooming Bath: Unlike Any Other

    The Blooming Bath for babies has been called a lot of things: adorable, ingenious, even a godsend, but recently our friends over at Pregnancy Magazine applied another description to our comfy baby bath – “unlike any other tub.”

    They were so right. We spend so much time at Blooming Bath focusing on how cute and comfy babies are in our tub that we sometimes take for granted how unique our little invention really is when compared to other baby bath tubs on the market today. The Blooming Bath for babies bath tub is the only tub of its kind that takes into account the comfort and needs of both new babies and new parents. And, it’s a “tub” that your kids will love even after they grow out of the baby stage.

    Unlike traditional hard plastic tubs, the Blooming Bath tub for babies is a made of plush materials that cradle baby and keep him or her safe and supported during bath time in the kitchen or bathroom sink. The cushioned, anti-microbial flower is also a breeze for parents to clean, wash and dry after each use so it’s always ready for the next time.

    Since Pregnancy Magazine it is the place first-time moms go to get trusted information about new baby products, we were pretty excited to get another mention on their website and in their magazine pages.

    Along with pointing out the Blooming Bath’s uniqueness in the baby bath segment, the magazine also pointed out how, “The Blooming Bath keeps baby in the water and comes up high enough to support baby’s head, cushioning hard or pointed surfaces that might harm baby while in the sink.”

    To find out just how different the Blooming Bath is from other tubs for babies, we encourage you to try it for yourself. You can choose from four adorable Blooming Bath colors including: Hot Pink, Turquoise, Canary Yellow and Ivory.

    Like Pregnancy Magazine writer Andrea Garabedian says, “it’s a unique accessory you can use to bathe baby.”  It also makes a great baby shower gift!

  • Safe Baby Bathing Essentials

    As a new parent, you want the best for your baby, but sometimes it’s hard to know what are the best products to use, especially when it comes to what shampoos and soaps you should use during bath time.

    Since baby’s skin is more sensitive than mom and dad's, it’s always a good idea to use soaps made from all-natural products, specifically created for babies.

    HollywoodLife.com recently put together a list of their favorites baby washes and shampoos to use during baby bath time in the bathtub.  Here are just a few of their favorites:

    -       Yes To Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo + Body Wash – As the name suggests, this all-in-one baby shampoo and body wash is made from natural ingredients include carrots, melons and Vitamin E. Baby will love the way it foams and parents will love that it is tear-free and hypoallergenic.

    -       Burts Bees Shampoo and Wash – Always a favorite, Burt's Bees offers a natural, plant-based shampoo and wash made specifically for baby. It includes a number of natural ingredients including: aloe, oat flour and soy proteins. Burt's Bees baby products are included in the Blooming Bath Bathing Kit and can be purchased along with your Blooming Bath on the Blooming Bath website.

    -       Noodle & Boo Soothing Body Wash – This baby bath wash has allantoin and milk proteins to safely clean your baby without taking away the skin's moisture. It’s soap-free, tearless and is said to rebalance natural ph levels in the skin.

    Read about more favorite baby bath product picks here. And don’t forget that you can buy a full Blooming Bath Bathing Kit on the Blooming Bath website that includes Burt’s Bees Shampoo and Wash, Diaper Ointment, Baby Oil and Nourishing Lotion (fragrance free). It makes an especially great baby shower gift. Let the bath time fun begin!

  • What Can Your Baby's Cries Tell You?

     

    Don’t you wish you could distinguish between your newborn’s cries? If you could tell the “I'm hungry" cry apart from the “I need to be changed” cry or the “I don’t want to be in this sink without my comfy Blooming Bath bathtub" cry.

    Researchers are currently studying how to tell the difference between those different types of cries (well at least the first two). Scientists from Brown University and the Women & Infant Hospital in Providence have created a computer program that analyzes a baby’s cries.

    The program takes into account up to 80 different factors including pitch and volume of the cries. Researchers are working to track patterns in the sounds, which they hope could one day help doctors catch medical conditions a newborn might have so it can be treated earlier.

    While it’s too soon in the research to be able to determine specific medical issues from different cries alone, right now researchers are able to get information on whether cries mean something with a baby’s nervous system is amiss and, if a cry is pain or non-pain related.

    The pitch of a cry is controlled by nerves in the brain and babies who have very high-pitched cries could be signaling that the nervous system is stressed or over stimulated. Down the road, researchers think they may be able to use what they find in the hospital setting as a screening for doctors and nurses.

    So, until there is a computer program you can access to decode your baby’s cries at home, we advise picking up a Blooming Bath for babies for bath time. It’s shown to significantly limit the amount of crying that takes place at bath time.

  • Bigger Babies are a Growing Trend

    Have you heard the newest trend in delivery rooms around the world? Bigger babies. You read that right, newborns are coming out of the womb weighing more than they have in decade's past, according to recent reports.

    The Lancet medical journal said that in the past 30 years, the number of babies born over 8 pounds, 13 ounces has jumped from 15 percent, to 25 percent.

    Perhaps most interesting is the fact that the journal said the jump is happening not just in the US, but across the globe, including countries in Europe and even China and India.

    Here in the US, where the country has been battling an obesity epidemic, doctors have gotten an earlier start working to curb the problem.  One way is to offer C-sections earlier before the baby comes to full term. C-section rates have risen 11 percent between 1996 and 2009 in the US.

    But all this baby weight talk begs the question, what is considered a healthy weight for a newborn?

    According to kidshealth.org, what is considered a healthy baby weight differs depending on the individual, but a general guideline for full term babies (born between 37 and 40 weeks) is to weigh between 5 pounds 8 ounces and 8 pounds 13 ounces.

    The weight of your baby can depend on a number of factors including:

    Genetics – If you and your partner are tall, it’s more likely you will have a larger baby as opposed to shorter parents.

    Multiples- Carrying more than one baby often results in smaller babies.

    Gender – On average girls are smaller than boys when they are born.

    Be sure to visit your doctor to discuss what is a healthy baby weight for your new baby.

    As long as your baby is healthy, don't worry if he or she is on the big (or small) size, the Blooming Bath for babies baby bath tub provides a comfy baby bathing experience for newborn babies of all sizes!

  • Number of Babies Blooms in the U.K.

    The latest news out of the United Kingdom is that the country is literally Blooming with babies, and we’re not just talking about the country’s most famous new little one, Prince George.  The number of new baby Brits being born has been on the rise for the past decade, reports say. The most recent statistics show that  between June 2011 and June 2012 the highest number of babies were born in the country since 1972. Figures show a total of 813,200 births took place within that time span.

    While that might seem small compared to the 3,958,000 babies born in the United States in 2012, the UK’s number is still said to be the largest number compared to numbers of births in other countries in Europe. Germany for example may be larger in size, but is said to have a much lower fertility rate than the UK. Italy and Spain are also experiencing lower birth rates.

    The figures are leading economists to predict the growing population not only to result in an uptick in new spending on everything from nappies, to prams, to Blooming Baths for babies bathtubs (which, by the way, can now be purchased in the UK and throughout Europe on amazon.uk) but also quicker economic recovery for the nation.

    More specifically, those in the know say the housing market will benefit from the “boomlet” as more families choose to move into bigger homes. In addition, the workforce is also expected to grow and if the UK population continues to grow at the current pace, could result in the UK becoming the largest economy in Europe in the next 20 years.

  • The Newest Royal is Born

     

    It looks like it’s a turquoise Blooming Bath for Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who have welcomed a baby boy (and future prince to the British throne) into the family. The internet was buzzing with news of the arrival of the new price and paparazzi was on hand Tuesday as the trio emerged from the hospital in London and posed for photographers.

    The proud parents were both (appropriately) dressed in blue – Kate in a blue dress with white polka dots and William in a blue dress shirt. Prince William joked with reporters about his son having his mother’s  good looks as well as the baby having more hair than his old man.

    For now, the child is still without a name and the pair have been quoted as saying that they are still working on it after having a proper chance to catch up with the newborn.

    Other details have been released including the baby’s birth weight, which was 8 pounds, 6 ounces and his day of birth- Monday, July 22nd. The baby boy was welcomed into the world by the bells of Westminster Abbey, which chimed for three hours in honor of the country's new heir.

    Another interesting factoid to come out of the royal birth is the amount the country is expected to earn due to the birth. Britain’s Center for Retail Research has estimated that the short-term economic windfall from the birth will total a whopping $383 million, which includes everything from the sales of official teacups, to an increase in beer and champagne being purchased.

    Now that the new lad has been born, the fun part starts, watching all of the must-haves the new mum and dad get for their little prince. Might we recommend a luxurious Blooming Bath bathtub?
