  • Blooming Baby Carrier Gets Seal of Approval from The National Parenting Center

    When people tell you that your baby carrier feels like a pillow, you know you're on to something...

    At Blooming Baby, we're known for our soft, plush flower baby bath. But, did you know that we're taking the same design principles from the Blooming Bath and applying them to a whole collection of baby products?

    After months of development, testing and baby wearing, we submitted our new Blooming Baby Carrier to the National Parenting Center. Several parents on their panel evaluated our comfy baby carrier and awarded us with the coveted National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.

     

    National Parenting Center Seal of Approval

     

    Here's what the expert parents loved most about our carrier:

    • They liked the seat support, which they felt was durable and comfortable for the baby.
    • The front pocket is perfect for holding cash, credit cards and a cell phone. It's positioned at the bottom of the carrier, which is especially important because it keeps mobile phones and electronic devices away from baby's body.
    • The mesh fabric helps keep baby cool and the shade/rain hood is a great feature which tucks nicely into the front pouch when not in use. It also makes a handy nursing cover.
    • Often overlooked is head support for your little one's head. The Blooming Baby Carrier impressed testers with the head support area which is plush, strong and comfortable.

    Thrilled with our results from The National Parenting Center, we wanted to take the Blooming Baby Carrier out into the world. We visited the Baby Wearing San Diego meetup group and donated three of our baby carriers to their lending library so moms could try out the carriers at no charge.

    Several moms tried our carrier. Babies that had been fidgeting, squirming and fussing instantly cozied up to mom and fell asleep. It was magical!

    What sets the Blooming Baby Carrier Apart?

    The innovative panel at the back of the carrier keeps mom extra comfy. With so much focus on baby, people tend forget that moms (and dads!) need to be in the right position, too! 100% of the moms and dads who have worn our carrier have fallen in love with how comfortable and supportive it is, even after several hours!

     

    Baby Wearing - wear baby as much as possible Deia Dressman loves her Blooming Baby Carrier

    The Blooming Baby Carrier is compatible with two positions: front inward and front outward facing. It is designed to accommodate babies from 12 to 45 pounds. In addition, the carrier’s patent-pending support sets it apart from other baby carriers on the market by correctly supporting both the hips and thighs of baby as recommended by the Hip Dysplasia Institute. Put simply, this sucker is comfortable for both baby and parents!

    And can we just say, Deia and baby look absolutely adorable, don't they?

  • 11 Tips for Surviving Your First Week After Maternity Leave Ends

    Dreading your first week back at work after maternity leave?

    It’s definitely a challenging time, and it requires a lot of preparation, both mentally and logistically.

    Blooming Baby’s Operations Manager, Deia Dressman, recently returned to work after a 3-month maternity leave. On the morning of her first day back she breezed into the office with a smile on her face, chatted with us all for a moment and went right to work. It was as if she had never left.

    Knowing how difficult the first week can be, I wanted to learn how Deia managed to keep it together, and then pass her best tips along to you.

    At the end of the week, I had one burning question. How did she feel on her first day? Was she happy to be in the office or was she missing every second of quality of time with her baby??

    She shared, “The first day, surprisingly, felt really good. It felt great to get out of the house and let them (baby and nanny) do their thing and it felt nice to kind of ‘adult’ again.”

    But the days before Deia’s arrival back at the office weren’t quite as smooth. When asked about the days leading up to her return, Deia said, “I was dreading it. It was sad to leave my baby. I was definitely counting down the days and squeezing my baby a little tighter. It’s hard to leave something that you are so literally attached to constantly for the last 3 and-a-half months.”

    Fortunately, Deia was uber-prepared for her first week back and has some extra helpful tips.

  • Amazon Gets Creative with the Blooming Bath

    Imagine our surprise when we saw this:

    blooming bath amazon The Blooming Bath is on the front page of the Amazon Baby Registry!

    Apparently Amazon agrees with us - the Blooming Bath is quite literally the cutest baby product on the planet!

    Amazon has the "Earth's biggest solution" of products, and we are absolutely tickled that they chose our product to highlight on the front page.

    Here's something else we think is pretty neat: Amazon shows a creative way to use the Blooming Bath, and we think it's super cute.

    While parents and babies love the Blooming Bath for its soft plushness and delightful design, they've also discovered that their Blooming Baths can be used for lots of other things, too. We've seen them used as play mats, decorative rugs, stroller pads and more.

  • Blooming Baby Carrier a JPMA Innovation Award Finalist

    JPMA-15-InnovationAward-FinalistLogo-OL

    There are a number of adjectives that can describe our Blooming Baby products: adorable, comfortable, cozy and delightful are just a few. But now, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) has added a new one to the list: Innovative.

    Blooming Baby is thrilled to learn that one of our newest products, the Blooming Baby Carrier, has been named as a finalist in the JPMA Innovation Awards!

    Each year, JPMA holds a competition for the most innovative products on the market. It’s one of the most prestigious product design awards out there.

    Products that are chosen are judged on their innovation, marketability, trend-setting potential, appeal and usefulness.

    More than 100 companies enter their most cutting-edge products and only the top 45 products move onto the judging round. The Blooming Baby Carrier will be judged along with the other candidate’s onsite at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas October 18-21. Only 10 of those will go on to be given a JPMA Innovation Award.

    Three years ago the Blooming Bath was also a JPMA Innovation Awards Finalist, and look how successful it has become.

    The Blooming Baby Carrier was designed to feel like an extension of yourself from the moment you put it on. Baby fits in snuggly and safely in either the inward or outward facing carrying positions and the advanced materials and wrap design make it wearable for hours.

    The carrier’s patent-pending support set it apart from other baby carriers on the market by correctly supporting both the hips and thighs as recommended by the Hip Dysplasia Institute.

    You can pre-order your Blooming Baby Carrier now and it will ship to you by October 15. Get yours now because we expect them to go fast.

  • Best and Worst States to Have a Baby

    Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 6.40.12 PM

    Did you know that August and September are two of the most popular months to have babies in the US?

    While more Americans may be having babies this time of year, how much you spend raising that baby, the quality of health care the child receives and the friendliness of the environment you raise her in will all depend on the state you live in.

    Taking all of these factors into account, a new study out from WalletHub ranks the best and worst states to raise a baby.

    When it comes to healthcare, Vermont takes the gold medal ranking number 1 in quality of healthcare. If you’re budget conscious then Kentucky is the state you want to have your baby in as the state ranks first in budget. If it’s a baby-friendly environment you want then you’ll have to head to the Aloha state of Hawaii, which took first in baby friendliness.

    With all three factors taken into consideration here are the best and worst states to have a baby:

    Best 10 States to Have a Baby:

    1. Vermont
    2. North Dakota
    3. Oregon
    4. Hawaii
    5. Minnesota
    6. Kentucky
    7. Maine
    8. Wyming
    9. Iowa
    10. Alaska

    Worst 10 States to Have a Baby:

    1. Mississippi
    2. Pennsylvania
    3. West Virginia
    4. South Carolina
    5. Nevada
    6. New York
    7. Louisiana
    8. Georgia
    9. Alabama
    10. Arkansas

    The study also uncovered some interesting statistics about the highest and lowest delivery costs by state. North Dakota has the lowest conventional delivery costs, while Nevada has the highest. The national average for a conventional birth will run you right around $10K and get ready to stomach paying an extra $5,238 for a c-section.
