Baby Spas - Are They A Thing Now?
Remember the adorable pics of babies enjoying a spa day which did the rounds on social media a couple of years ago? The people behind Your Baby Spa (including former professional swimmer Laura Sevenus) have opened a new one in Australia and the pics are as cute as you'd imagine.
Using a specially designed flotation device called the Bubby, babies aged from two days to six months can enjoy floating in their own neonatal pod or in larger hydrotherapy spas. The whole experience is meant to resemble a baby's experience in the womb and, with repeat visits, aims to develop a love for water. And it's all finished off with a bit of baby massage.
Aw. But it's apparently not just about cute pics. According to the owners, hydrotherapy for babies is "a groundbreaking developmental technique, which offers numerous physical and emotional benefits for neonates and young babies".
I reckon this could do wonders for babies with colic, not to mention tiring out the little darlings and helping them to sleep. What's your view? Are you a fan of baby massage and have you ever tried hydrotherapy with your little one? We'd love to hear your experiences.
Now, how long till they open a joint where you and your baby can do a spa day together?!
