  • The Blooming Bath is Perfect for Preemies

     

    If you’ve been keeping an eye on the Blooming Bath Facebook Page lately you may have noticed some adorable pictures (and praise) sent along from parents of preemies who have been using the Blooming Bath to bathe their tiny ones.

    "The Blooming Bath is the best bath tub made for preemies. She's just 34 weeks in this photo." says @empoweringmommy

    Preemies are babies born at least three weeks before their due date.

    It got us thinking about how premature births seem to be more common these days, which led us to seek out some statistics. Here’s what we found from the March of Dimes:

    * The United States has one of the highest numbers of premature births for a developed nation.

    * There are an estimated 450,000 premature births each year.

    * That averages out to about 1 in 9 of the babies being born are premature.

    The March of Dimes has created a report card by state for premature births. Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Oregon, California and Alaska are the only states that get an A. Visit their site to see how your state ranks.

    You're probably also wondering if there are things you can do to try to prevent a premature birth? Yes! Some of the important things you can do is talk to your doctor and go in for regular checkups throughout your pregnancy.

    In addition, it’s important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including taking prenatal vitamins with folic acid, controlling health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes, eating healthy and avoiding smoking, alcohol and drugs.
