I sometimes bath Paul for the very selfish reason of wanting to sniff his freshly washed tiny little baby head. Fresh and clean baby might be one of my favorite smells in the whole wide world.
Right before Paul was born, I was asked if I would like to try out a new baby bathtub on the scene, the Blooming Bath. I of course jumped on the opportunity, because I’m admittedly one of those moms who love to try test out all of the latest and greatest baby gear.
So the Blooming Bath. How would I describe it? It’s basically a soft, form-able tub that fits into any sink creating a warm cradle to rub-a-dub-dub baby in.
Being an eternal skeptic, I had my reservations at first. And so did Paul:
What’s this silly soft thing you’re setting me in, mom? Do I look like a flower that needs watering?
And then, within a minute, we had sheer baby bliss on our hands. The kid, totally mellowed out and let it all hang loose (if you know what I mean).
Now hide my bits for the camera, I’m a modest kind of guy…
As a mom, I thought that the tub really made Paul feel safe and secure, and he appeared to enjoy this bathing experience much more than the old plastic tub we used with his older siblings.
When we’re done using it, we easily ring out the excess water into the sink and use the handy hang tag located on the back to hang it to dry. Or, if you’re so inclined, you can just throw it into the dryer for a few minutes to bounce around.
Another cool feature about the bath is that when baby outgrows the “sink bath”, the Blooming Bath can be place in the real tub as a soft and secure spot to keeps baby’s bottom from slipping and sliding around.
The Blooming Bath costs $40, and can be purchased online.
Blooming Bath wants to gift one of their baths to one of you! And no worries if you’re out of the baby stage, I think this would make a fantastic shower or new baby gift. I would have LOVED to have received one of these!
