  • The Blooming Bath "Summer Favorites" Giveaway Is Here!

    Awesome baby gear up for grabs:

    Blooming Bath baby bath – Nothing says summer like the cheery Blooming Bath for babies bathtub in cheery yellow. Why would anyone want to bathe their baby in a hard plastic tub, when they could wrap their baby in the comforting petals of a plush flower. Voted #1 baby bath 2 years in a row!

    Ergobaby Nursing Pillow – The Natural Curve Nursing pillow is made from solid foam with a unique contour to help properly position baby tummy-to-tummy at a good height that saves you from slouching. Firm and ergonomically structured, it maintains its shape over time for lasting support. The Ergobaby Natural Curve™ Nursing Pillow gives you the enduring support you need to relax, nurse comfortably and bond with baby.

    Ergobaby Indigo Mint Dots Carrier – Voted a fan favorite, the mom-designed Indigo Mint Dots baby carrier is as stylish as it is comfortable. Pastel mint green lining and allover polka dot print give this classic indigo carrier a playful twist, the perfect accessory for all your everyday adventures.

Large zippered storage pocket. Supports babies from 12-45 lbs (5.5-20 kg), and infants 7-12 lbs (3.2-5.5 kg) with the use of the Infant Insert (sold separately).

    Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper -  The maker of the HALO SleepSack® Wearable Blanket offers the BassinestTM Swivel Sleeper, a revolutionary baby bassinet that makes sleeping close safer for baby and easier for mom. The Bassinest’s unique dual-swivel design allows baby to sleep as close as Mom wants - even right next to her in bed. The Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is the only bassinet that moves to bring baby to Mom. It allows baby to sleep in his own separate sleep area, reducing the risks associated with bed-sharing. Not only does the Bassinest move easily to allow mom to get out of bed (especially important for those who have delivered via c-section), but it also supports nursing mothers. With its patented retractable wall, baby can be brought to breast without getting out of bed, and a unique nursing timer alerts mom when it's time to change sides or return baby to his own sleeping space.

    Halo SleepSack Swaddle - The Halo® SleepSack® Swaddle replaces loose blankets in the crib that can cover your baby’s face and interfere with breathing. In addition to helping your baby sleep safer, it helps him sleep better, too. Its adjustable swaddle wrap immobilizes your baby's arms to prevent the "Moro" or startle reflex. And, it is the only 2-in-1 adjustable swaddle that allows for swaddling arms in or arms out for baby’s comfort and to ensure an easy and gentle transition to the SleepSack wearable blanket when it is time to stop swaddling.

    Comfort Cam - Monitor baby easily with the ComfortCam. It has all the features in a baby monitor that  parents want. ComfortCam brings your child directly to you no matter where you are – in your home, at work, traveling, or even while you are on date night.

Use ComfortCam™ in your home via WiFi, or enroll in ComfortCam™ Plus to see your baby anytime, anywhere in the world. **Included 3 months free of monitoring.

    Little Giraffe Luxe Hooded Towel - Wrap your little one in the signature Luxe™ Giraffe bath towel - the world's best baby towel made of the softest faux fur imaginable. This cuddly, snuggly baby towel has an embossed giraffe design sure to make naptime cozy. 100% polymicrofiber.

These adorable soft-soled shoes are made with durable leather and are suitable for infants and toddlers alike.

    Good luck and happy summer!

  • Summer Is Nearly Here Baby!

    HappyBaby

    This Sunday, June 21 marks the first day of summer! Do you know what that means? For many, the answer is sun and fun. For a large number of families, summer may also mean that a new baby will be arriving.

    According to monthly birth trends compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the largest number of births takes place in the summer months, the most of any of the four seasons.

    While new moms may be relieved to be at the end of their pregnancies or even have delivered their babies before the hottest months of the year, it turns out that there are a number of positive characteristics that may also be innate to babies born in the summer months.

    Here are just a few of the most interesting ones we’ve found.

    A Sunnier Outlook – In a European survey given to residents of Britain and Sweden, those respondents that were born in the summer months answered questions more optimistically than their counterparts born in the winter months. The survey questions focused on topics involving luck and life outlook. Compared to winter babies, those born in the summer recorded more optimistic answers.

    More Spirited – Well, spirited may be a bit too positive of a word to describe what researchers in Australia found when they surveyed four and five year-olds using a specialized screening to test their behavior. Researchers found that children born in the summer months were more distracted, fidgety and had more energy overall compared with children their own age born in winter months. Researchers attributed the behavioral differences to a lack of Vitamin C in winter babies.

    Happier - Despite all that added energy, however, babies who are born during the summer months were characterized as more happy according to a Nature Neuroscience study that credited light cycles in the summer months as being responsible for lower instances of disorders like seasonal affective disorder, bipolar depression and schizophrenia, than those born in the winter.

    Smarter – If you're having a girl in the summer that is. A study from Columbia University Medical Center found that the girls born in the summer months had more gray matter in their brains while boys born in winter months had greater amounts of gray matter in their brains. Higher instances of gray matter in the brain has been linked to higher levels of intelligence.

    So happy soon to-be summer and welcome to a whole lot of smart, happy babies.

  • Your Name Throughout The Decades

    When you’re knee deep (or in our case, sink deep) in baby products, you can’t help but keep a close eye on baby naming trends. It just comes with the territory when you constantly see that adorable Hudson splashing around in his Blooming Bath for babies, or cutie Hadley against the backdrop of the hot pink Blooming Bath petals.

    And don’t even get us started on the happy-go-lucky shots of newborns Bracken or Oliver.

    You see what we mean? Great names are everywhere.

    And while there are tons of baby naming resources for new parents out there like Nameberry or Belly Ballot, which help parents sort out the trendiest new names, we also enjoy seeing tools that show how the popularity of names has changed throughout the decades.

    That’s why we are so excited to share this new tool that TIME created using name data from the Social Security Administration showing what your name would be if you were born today.

    Plug in your name, the year you were born and your sex and the tool not only tells you how your name ranked in popularity the year you were born, it also tells you what your name would be if you were born in today as well as if you were born in the year 2000, 1990, 1980 and all the way back through the decades to 1890.

    Say you were born in 1980 and your name is Heather (the 6th most popular name that year), today, you’re name would be Mia. If you were born in 1890, your name would be Minnie.

    If you were born in 1978 and your name is Adam, today your parent’s would have likely named you Christopher. If you were born in 2000 your name would be Luis.
