  • Goodbye Dragon, Hello Snake

    It’s a brand new year. A brand new lunar year, that is. On Feb.10 millions of people around the world celebrated the start of the Chinese New Year. The event brought the close of the Year of the Dragon and ushered in the Year of the Snake.

    The Chinese lunar calendar consists of 12 zodiac signs and the Dragon is said to be one of the luckiest signs to be born under. Even as the year came to a close, newly expecting parents in countries around the world were rushing to the hospital to deliver ‘lucky’ dragon babies.

    According to news reports, the number of babies born during this past Dragon Year were the highest numbers of the decade, at 42,600.  The increase marks a 7 percent jump over the number of babies born in 2011. In Singapore alone there were 40,000 more births over 2011 figures.

    Those parents who will now be welcoming babies born under the Snake sign are said to be looking forward to raising children who are polite, humble, energetic, smart and patient, but also at times demanding and cunning.

    This year is also a water year so Snake babies are expected to be more adaptable and will easily tolerate others. In addition, babies born between now and the next Chinese New Year (on Jan. 31) will be charming, sociable and attractive.

    Some of the well-known people born in past Snake Years include Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, Franz Schubert, Alfred Nobel and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

  • Giving a Gift That is Always in Bloom

    When it comes to shopping for gifts for friends and family members who are expecting, it can be difficult to say the least. Many times new parents want to wait until the baby is born to know whether it is a boy or a girl, but the baby shower is held months in advance. Other times, parents may find out the sex of their baby, but already have special color themes picked out for their nursery and baby products.

    When shopping for baby shower gifts for the soon-to-be parents, there are a number of ways you can shop at Blooming Bath to ensure that you still getting the new parents exactly what they want.  Here are just a few of the ways to do so:

    Gift Registry – Blooming Bath has partnered with MyRegistry.com which allows new parents to create one online wish list of all the baby items they want. Check to see if the new mom and dad has a gift registry that you can peruse to get an idea of the different types of products and colors they are asking for. You can also mention the site to them and encourage them to join, so you can get a better sense of what they want for their new baby.

    Gift Card – Giving a gift card is a great way to ensure that new moms and dads get exactly what they want for their new baby. And, it’s easy on the giver too. All you need to do is visit the Blooming Bath Gift Card page. Once purchased, you will receive an email confirmation with a gift code valid to use on the website. You can either forward along the code to your gift recipient or print it out and wrap it up to go with other items. A Blooming Bath gift card is also a good choice if you can’t attend the baby shower or live far away and don’t want to have to ship a gift.

    Buy Neutral – If you are attending the baby shower and want a gift that is sure to elicit oohs and ahhs from all present than there is no better way than to gift the new mom a Blooming Bath bath tub for babies.

  • Blooming Bath Goes to Hollywood for the Golden Globes

    Blooming Bath (www.BloomingBath.com) is headed to Hollywood to debut the Blooming Bath for babies bathtub, to some of the most well known stars of the big screen.

    Blooming Bath was hand-selected as a must-have baby product to be gifted to A-list celebrity moms and dads at the Boom Boom Room's Pre Golden Globe Gifting Suite. The event takes place in Los Angeles January 11th-12th.

    "Blooming Bath is excited to be a part of this star-studded gifting opportunity," said Blooming Bath President Brian Pond. "Celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian have already discovered the comfort and ease of using the Blooming Bath during baby bath time. Now we are excited to introduce this adorable and unique baby bath product to an even broader segment of parents."

    Recently called, "a must-have, smart solution" by Bobbie Thomas of the Today Show, the Blooming Bath for babies is a soft, plush flower that conforms to any sink or tub, providing babies 0-8 months a comfy, convenient and adorable bathing experience.

    TV personality and fashion guru Jayneoni Moore designed the Gifting Suite event so celebrity parents could connect with the hottest, must-have clothing, products and accessories for babies and kids. In addition to celebrities, the Boom Boom Room will host more than 400 REAL moms, military families, members of the media and store buyers.

    Blooming Bath is based in Southern California, the brainchild of four dads who were tired (and a little scared) of handling their slippery babies in hard plastic bathtubs. The Blooming Bath's quick-drying, foam-filled pedals create a safe, soft and supportive pouch that your precious little one will enjoy – guaranteed.

    Blooming Bath's recent accolades include:

    The in-the-know authority on baby products also mentioned how wonderful the Blooming Bath bathtub is compared to traditional hard plastic tubs. “I still remember our big plastic baby bath that my husband and I used to break our backs trying to use in the bathtub.

    At Blooming Bath we strive everyday to provide our customers and their little ones with the most adorable, comfortable bathing experience possible. We're excited to be recognized in 2012 by Cool Mom Picks and can't wait to see what 2013 holds for the Blooming Bath!

  • Need a Baby Name? Cast your Belly Ballot

    Here at Blooming Bath, we like to share news of the latest baby naming trends when we come upon them. We recently stumbled on a cool baby naming website that makes it easy to pick a list of your favorite baby names, share them with friends and family, get feedback and even win prizes.

    The site is called Belly Ballot and it allows new parents the ability to create a “belly ballot” of the top baby names they are considering for their newborns.  Through the site, you are able to share the list of potential baby names with your friends and family members via social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. People in your social network can provide feedback and suggestions on your names and help you decide which you like best.

    When friends and family vote on the names, the parents-to-be also have the chance to win baby prizes. Once a name is chosen, the parents can announce it though Twitter or Facebook.

    In addition to helping parents figure out the perfect name, the site recently shared some of the baby name data it has collected, resulting in some interesting predictions for baby names in the coming year.

    Here are just of the few things the founders of the website are predicting when it comes to baby names in 2013.

    Multiple names – Parent’s are having a harder time sticking to just a first and a middle name. More and more parents it seems will be giving their children multiple names - up to as many as five!

    Throwback – Just like history often repeats itself, so do names. This year, we are likely to see more babies with names similar to the ones your grandma and grandpa have. A few examples: Charles, Eleanor, Pearl and Frank.

    Different spellings- In an effort to set their children apart, many parents are now spelling their child’s names differently from there traditional spellings. Jaxon and Jaxen have become a popular alternative to the more traditional Jackson. Other examples include Josilyn and Avah.

  • Welcome New Year's Babies

    Each December 31st while the majority of people are counting down to the start of the New Year, mothers in hospitals across the country are giving birth to babies who could become the first babies born in the New Year in their communities.

    New Years Babies are babies who are born on midnight, or within the first few minutes or hours of the New Year. Oftentimes, hospitals will celebrate the arrival of their first New Year Baby of the year by presenting the baby’s family with a gift package or gift certificates. In addition, local media outlets will report the names, weights and time of birth of the first few babies born in the New Year.

    Businesses have long donated baby gifts and merchandise to New Year Babies and their families. Along with getting free baby stuff and a little bit of fame, there are also a number of positive superstitions surrounding New Year’s Babies. One of the most prevalent beliefs is that the baby will be lucky for the rest of its life. It’s also been said that babies who are born on New Year’s have green thumbs and are very fertile.

    Throughout the course of history, there have been a number of well known individuals who are recognized as a New Year’s Baby. These include:

    -       Pope Alexander VI - 1431

    -       Paul Revere – 1735

    -       George Washington Carver – 1860

    -       J. Edgar Hoover – 1895

    -       J.D. Salinger- 1919

    While many new parents may revel in the status of having one of the first babies born of the New Year, there are some advantages to having a baby born before the clock strikes midnight. Parents whose children are born in December can claim a tax deduction on their 2012 income taxes.

    Congratulations to every new parent who is expecting a child in the last few days of December and throughout the New Year!

  • Ways To Commemorate Baby's First Christmas

     

    Christmas can be a hectic time of year, planning for family gatherings, shopping for the perfect gifts and making the home holiday ready. But many parents who’ve welcomed a new baby into the family this year will want to go the extra step to make baby’s first Christmas one to remember. Here are just a few things you can do to commemorate your baby’s first Christmas.

    Document the Occasion - Whether your preferred media is a scrapbook or a video, one of the absolute best ways to encapsulate the memories of your child’s first Christmas is to document it.

    For scrapbookers, a great idea is to adorn the scrapbook with the child’s name and birthday as well as the year of their first Christmas. You can fill the inside with cards and pictures along with notes about what the child received and memories about their first reactions to the holiday. It will be sure to be a treasured for years to come.

    For the more technologically advanced, taking digital pictures for a slide show or videotaping and compiling a baby’s first Christmas video is a great way to capture all of the details of baby’s first Christmas.  It will also be fun to watch year after year, long after baby has grown up.

    Mark the Season with Bling - Tree bling that is. Many of us still have our own Baby’s First Christmas ornaments that we place lovingly on the tree each year. Buy your baby a personalized baby’s first Christmas ornament that you can hang each year to remember that very first Christmas. Another wonderful tradition is to give your child an ornament every Christmas. When they grow up and move out, pack them up a box of all their Christmas ornaments from throughout the years to hang on their own Christmas tree.

    Start Your Own Traditions - One of the reasons Christmas is so meaningful is because we often look back fondly on the Christmas traditions we grew up with. Maybe it was decorating the tree to certain Christmas songs, putting up the Christmas lights on a set day, or reading a Christmas story together by the fire on Christmas Eve. Whatever your family traditions, it’s always a great idea to pass on old traditions and make new family traditions when we welcoming new members of the family.

    Whatever you do to commemorate your first Christmas with your little ones, we wish you a very Merry Christmas from all of us here at Blooming Bath!
