Blooming Bath

Back in February, I stumbled upon a picture of a beautiful baby bath pillow shaped like a flower that I knew I had to have for my little Olivia.  I think my heart skipped a beat, literally!  This was the cutest thing I had ever seen!  Why did I not think of this???!!!  I scoured Google without knowing what this product was called or who made it.  I used tons of descriptions and finally found the Blooming Bath.  I had to have this.  Fortunately, I received one as a shower gift, although I was fully prepared to buy   one had I not.

I have had so many compliments on my Blooming Bath. The first thing that people notice about it is the bright color (pink , of course!) and how soft it is!   My little one loves her Blooming Bath.  She doesn't slide around at all and her head is protected from the hard sides of the sink, freeing up both my hands to wash her with.  It also cushions her skin from the cold metal and helps her to stay warm during her bath.  I  had other bath sponges  with my older sons that got cold spots in them and made the boys miserable!  Another great thing I love about Blooming Bath is it's extended use.  You can also use it in the tub as the baby gets older and as a bath pillow for Mama after that!

Product Features
The Blooming Bath, invented by four dads, is made of an antimicrobial foam covered in super soft minky fabric on the front and a durable Tricot mesh on the back.   It measures 32" from petal tip to petal tip and is the perfect size to fit in the kitchen sink.  The petals overlap to cradle my baby and help her feel secure when I bathe her.  When bath time is over, I just rinse, wring and toss it in the dryer for 10 to 15 minutes.  That's right, the dryer!  What a cool feature!  No more messy, dripping bath cushions.  However, if you prefer, Blooming Bath has a hang tag on the back to hang it up to dry.  You can even machine wash it on the gentle cycle!  I have done this once or twice and it comes out just as soft as the day I got it.  No more plastic, hard-to-store baby bath tubs for this girl.  Blooming Bath sells for $50 (with free shipping, people!) and comes in Hot Pink, Turquoise, and Canary Yellow.

And as if we didn't already love them enough, the folks at Blooming Bath are eco-friendly!  When the patterns for the flower petals were cut out, they found that there was a lot of minky scraps leftover.  Blooming Bath decided to turn this waste into an awesome new product for us, and so Puddles Baby Bath Washcloths were born!  Same smooth softness of the Blooming Bath, now in a washcloth.  These are sold on the company's website in a four-pack for $10.  Genius, I say.

You can also buy the Blooming Bath Bathing Kit for $80 (again, free shipping.)  Included in the kit are a Blooming Bath in your color choice, with a 4-pack of puddles, and some awesome Burt's Bees Baby Products.  1 Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion Fragrance Free 6 oz, 1 Baby Bee Nourishing Baby Oil 3 oz, 1 Baby Bee Diaper Ointment 2 oz, and 1 Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash Fragrance Free 8 oz.  This would make an excellent shower gift for a new mom.

All in all, this is a terrific product and I look forward to seeing what the Blooming Bath has in store for us next!

I did not receive any compensation from the company for this review.  The product was purchased for me as a gift and all opinions are my own.
