Yesterday we wrote about how teens and kids are becoming avid spa-goers, which got us to wondering about how young kids get started with spa treatments. It didn’t take us long before we found the Baby Spa, European Style Tub. This is a bathtub that basically looks like a bucket and allows your baby to sit upright when being bathed. It does look quite comfortable and the logic behind it makes sense to me, a mother of two.
Many Europeans bathe their babies in tubs that let the child sit in a natural upright position with warm water up to their shoulders. The tub calms the baby by providing an environment much like the one where they spent their very first nine months. It’s no wonder they relax completely and enjoy this baby spa so much! This tub is easy to use from your baby is a newborn up until they can use the regular bathtub. It’s even great for colicky babies. So relax during bath time, and treat your baby to a Baby Spa bathtub.
If a new kind of tub isn’t quite what you expected for this post, then we won’t disappoint. Yes, there are even spa treatments for babies! The baby spas cater to babies of all ages, from fresh newborns to rowdy toddlers. Play 2 Grow in Atlanta offers three basic types of treatments for infants: infant massage, “tummy time” and even a form of chromatherapy where the babies are sung to. These treatments are said to improve the developing sensory and motor systems of the babies, while lowering the levels of cortisol, which is the human “stress” hormone. These treatments are also said to relieve colic while stimulating food absorption and improving immune system functioning. All services are offered as classes for the parents or caregiver to be part of as well. The classes at this baby spa cost $336 for 16 sessions.
Another baby spa, the Skin Spa Baby in Encino California, offers similar treatments in addition to baby facials, baby supervisions (daycare), baby yoga, and more including baby chakra chi where warm towels are placed on strategic points around the baby’s chakras, and then light triggers are used to release stress and bring the mommy and baby closer. If you can’t wait until you actually have your baby, all of these baby spas and others also offer prenatal spa treatments.
