To put it lightly Dustin is not fond of bath time especially when it comes to wiggly squirmy soapy little babies like our adorable Willow Jean. But he’s not the only guy that feels that way. In fact four friends (Eric Devericks, Brian Pond, David Morelock, & Tom Morris) who also happen to be dads felt the exact same way. These four dads have no problem changing diapers, soothing fussy babies…. well anything besides bending over a tub or trying to keep a soapy slippery baby in place in a slick kitchen sink…. to them that became a chore when it should have been a fun experience. Together they decided to co-found a company that would enable them to fix this problem. And after more than a year of hard work later the Blooming Bath was born.
The Blooming Bath is an adorable flower shaped cushion that gently cradles the soapiest slipperiest babies to make bath time enjoyable for mom and dad. When it first arrived at our home I couldn’t get over how incredibly soft both the Blooming Bath and washcloth were – so different than any other bath sponge or mesh seat I had used with Alleigh and Kaelyn – and I knew that Willow would feel nice and comfy laying against it during bath time. That amazingly soft feeling is thanks to the plush polyester material that makes up the top of the flower, the center is a high quality polypropylene foam and the back is made from a durable polyester mesh. The Blooming Bath is very generously sized measuring 32” from petal tip to petal tip and the center of the flower has a 10” diameter – this is where baby’s little tush rests. This size allows for the Blooming Bath to perfectly fit in one side of a traditional kitchen sink so that baby is cradled in comfort.
Check out how comfy Willow was during her bath… and not only was she comfortable, but Dustin and I were as well. Instead of a slippery soapy baby and slick sink we had a soft plush cushion that was gently cradling our bundle of joy and bath time was fun. There was no stress from us and no crying from Willow. Thank you Blooming Bath!!
And once bath time is over clean up is a breeze. After squeezing out the excess water you can either toss the Blooming Bath in the dryer for about 10 minutes or hang using the loop in the back to air dry. So far we have just been using the air dry method and it still dries remarkably fast while saving energy too. This is definitely a product that we will be getting lots of use out of because I bathe my kiddos in the kitchen sink til they are too big to fit. I’ve had three knee surgeries and I like to avoid kneeling and leaning over the bath tub at all costs. Plus it’s just so soft and comfy Willow will probably have a fit when we move her to the real tub sometime, hehe.
