  • Celebrate Sleep Awareness With A Blooming Bath Giveaway!

    This week Blooming Bath is helping celebrate the thing new parents hardly ever seem to get enough of and the thing we wish our babies would do more of – SLEEP!

    Blooming Bath is honoring National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Awareness Week, which took place earlier this month, by providing you tips for starting a nightly sleep routine with your babies and a great giveaway! Below are just a few things you can do to help get your new babies to sleep, which means, you’ll likely get more shuteye as well.

    Tips For Starting a Nightly Sleep Routine With Baby

    Start early and at the same time each night. Consistency is key in building a nightly routine that will stick.

    Relax your child with a nightly bath. Not only is giving your baby a bath at night a great time for bonding, it can also help them relax and fall asleep more quickly.

    Once you put baby to bed, use that time to either read or sing them a song to send them into sweet dreams.

    The temperature and lighting in your nursery can play a big part in your baby’s sleep (or lack thereof). Temperature in the room should be set between 65 to 70 degrees and the lighting should mimic that of natural light. So be sure to dim the lights when the sun sets.

    Need a little extra help getting your child to sleep? We thought you might, which is why we decided to team up to offer you a great giveaway that will provide you with everything you need to start a regular bedtime routine. The grand prize package valued at $600 includes:

  • Spring Is A Great Time To Start Trying To Have A Baby

    Ready to have a baby? Now might be the best time of year to start trying.

    According to a study written up in The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, sperm apparently are stronger and faster in winter months and the early months of spring.

    The study used 6,455 samples from fertility clinics over a three-year time span – from 2006 to 2009. What they found was the healthiest “swimmers” were produced in the winter months and the first fews of months of spring.

    According to the report, the speed and mobility of sperm can mean a better chance of a couple getting pregnant.

    The researchers encouraged those who are having a hard time conceiving, or those just beginning to start trying to have a baby, to consider the winter and early spring months, since it takes the male body 70 days to produce a sperm cell.

    So, if you are ready to get pregnant, now just may be the time "spring" into action because spring officially beings this Friday, March 20.

    Already have a baby?

    Why not celebrate spring by picking up a spring-colored Blooming Bath for Babies bathtub like Canary Yellow or Green. Spring is also the time of year for baby showers so be sure to stock up!

  • We ❤ Our Customers' Photos

    Here at Blooming Bath, there are so many different fun aspects of our jobs. But one of our favorites is that we get to ooh and aah and gawk over all of our customer's adorable baby photos.

    We see them posted on Instagram, we see them shared on Facebook and of course we see them tweeted out on Twitter. Naturally, we are especially partial to the photos of our customer's babies using The Blooming Bath, but let's be honest, we have yet to meet a baby picture that we didn't like.

    That's why we've gone ahead and created our very own Blooming Bath Photo Gallery of all of your photos right here on our website. So now you can ooh and aah and smile right along with us. You can also get your photos included on the page. How you ask? All you have to do is tag your photos #BloomingBath on Instagram and Twitter. It's that simple.

    Then just sit back and enjoy the adorableness, just like we get to everyday!
