  • 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.

    What have you used your Blooming Bath for other than bath time? Please comment below. We'd love to hear your ideas!

  • 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.

  • How Much Maternity Leave Do You Get?

    lisa-ling-blooming-bath

    How much maternity leave does your workplace offer? If you’re lucky enough to work at Netflix, you’re now eligible to take up to 12 months of (paid) leave the first year after your child is born.

    That’s according to a new policy announced by the company earlier this week.

    The move is fairly groundbreaking for a US company, considering United States’ Family and Medical Leave Act guarantees women who work at least 25 hours a week and who’ve been at their jobs at least a year just 12 weeks of (unpaid) maternity leave.

    Another highly regarded tech company, Google, gives its employees 18 weeks of paid maternity leave in addition to another 12 weeks of paid “baby bonding” time.

    The news got us wondering about how other countries stack up to the US when it comes to maternity leave policies.

    This article and corresponding infographic gave us a look into other countries maternity leave policies. Here are some of the highlights:

    Canada One of the most generous countries when it comes to paid maternity leave, offers new moms 50 weeks of paid time off with baby.

    Norway Parents in Norway get 44 weeks of paid leave.

    France French women get full pay for 16 weeks of their maternity leave, which is broken up by 6 weeks prior to the birth and 10 weeks post birth.

    Australia Australia has paternal leave rather than maternity leave which allows either parent to take a paid 18-week leave. Parents Down Under are also allowed to share the leave.

    United Kingdom The UK provides 20 hours of guaranteed paid maternity leave for new moms.

    How does your employer's maternity leave policy stack up?

  • Keep Baby Cool On Hot Days

    bloomingbath

    The summer heat has arrived. Millions of people across the US are feeling the heat this week as high temperatures and sticky humidity hit many areas of the country, including the Northeast, Northwest and Southern states.

    If this is your baby’s first summer, be sure you follow these simple steps to keep your baby cool in the sweltering summer heat.

    Dress for coolness When it comes to keeping your baby cool in the heat, it can come down to their outfit choice. Keeping baby dressed in natural cotton materials will help keep them cooler and minimize the possibility of rashes and skin irritations that can come from wearing clothes made of synthetics.

    Keep a sun hat on your little one if you’re going to be outside to avoid extra sun exposure and dressing in white or light colors can also keep them cool.

    Stay Indoors On the really hot days, it’s best to keep your baby indoors rather than risk the extra sun exposure and heat that can be found on playgrounds and play areas.

    If you do decide to go out for a walk in the stroller, limit your trips outside to the early morning or later evening hours when the sun is less intense.

    Hydrate Just like adults, when the mercury rises, it’s important to keep your baby hydrated. If your baby is breastfeeding, you most likely won’t need to give him or her additional water, but know that they may want to feed more often for shorter amounts of time. Babies who breastfeed often during hot weather will stay hydrated just by doing so.

    For babies who are older and are eating solid foods, water and fresh fruit juices can also help them stay hydrated in the heat.

    Get Wet On hot days, babies will love to splash around and cool off in the water. Fill up the bathtub or a wading pool, grab your Blooming Bath for babies bathtub and soon they'll forget being fussy because of the heat and be happily splashing away. Be sure to supervise your baby anytime they are in water.
