Seven baths for seven babies – and not a murmur of discontent from any of them. These water-babes are trying out the latest in child pacifiers at a crèche in Holland.



The youngsters are having 'Tummy Tubs' – warm water baths said to soothe the very young after a gruelling day at the playground.

The Tummy Tub is a registered product designed in the Netherlands by child carers.

'It helps to ease the transition from the comfort of the mothers' womb,' say the makers.

The benefits are acknowledged in homes and maternity hospitals throughout Europe where doctors, midwives, health visitors and maternity hospitals endorse it.

The makers say; 'It makes bath time enjoyable from birth; its special, original design ensures that babies adopt and relax in the familiar and natural foetal position.

'Baby can be immersed up to shoulder level safely and remains warmer for longer. '

From birth it is recommended that the Tummy Tub is filled with water to over the baby’s shoulder, to keep them warm.

Extra water can be added so the baby can adopt a floating position, with the support of the parent.

When the baby reaches between 12 and 16 weeks - at this stage babies can usually hold their heads up without support - the water level in the Tummy Tub can be reduced.

'As the tub has a smaller surface water area than most baby baths, the water stays warmer for longer helping the baby to enjoy the experience,' said the manufacturers.

The Tummy Tub is recommended for children up to three years old.

Nothing could go wrong if they're supervised which they should be in ANY bath. I think it's great!

The baby bathtubs we have here all lay them on their backs with enough water to barely cover their butts while the rest of them gets wet and then sits in the cold air.

Who doesn't want to soak themselves in a warm bath? Ultimate relaxation.

No, they invented a name and patented it. You don't need actual creativity and innovation to become a millionaire nowadays.

And, yes, I'll take the bald roly-poly one front left.

The one with "Why am I the only one with hair?" really DOES look like he's contemplating something like that.

Cool idea, needs wood paneling and jets.

Hey, my youngest has a rather large forehead. Both my kids have giganto heads anyway. They get it from their father. HIS father's nickname in school was "Head."

When I was pregnant with our oldest I would just stare at my husband's head and in my mind I would be cussing him out for knowing what I'd be going through with the birthing.

And my oldest had male-pattern baldness as a newborn. She had a ring of hair over her ears and around the back of her head but was bald on top. She's a beauty now though so it's all good.

My little girl looked like a baby doll when she was little. My son was a beautiful little boy. He had beautiful blonde hair. They are both still gorgeous. I love all babies, they are adorable! The babies in those buckets are especially cute though! mine aren't babies anymore, now 8 and 5.

Think Gilbert and Sullivan with infants.


Seriously, it was an expo showing off all the crap you can buy for your baby. My wife was abut 5 months pregnant at the time. These Tummy Tubs were stupidly expensive. The marketing chick made a good case for them, but not at that price.

Too much, but the $5k rebate helps...

This is BRAINWASHING!

They are teaching young people that it's OK to sit in a warm pot...

Unbeknownst to them that as they grow older, the temperature in the pot will be turned-up to the point where they will be boiled to death, or have to jump out out of the pot and into the fire.

Oh wait, they've been doing that here for years.

ihatespngbob,

Oh, they are beauties! My oldest took a few months to get cute and, minus the missing teeth (she's 6) she's still very pretty. She went through this AWFUL awkward stage at a couple of months old where she was just really weird looking. The pictures from that time crack me up to this day.

My second was gorgeous as soon as she was born. Then by a few weeks she got really bad baby acne and went through an awkward stage that lasted forever. She's cute now and I see her being a very pretty older child.

I'm 39 weeks with our third girl and I can't WAIT to see what she's going to look like!

Oldest at 1 day old:

In the middle of the awkward stage. She's obviously the one on the right:

Finally cute at 4 months:

Now:

Second about an hour after birth:



I don't have any on the computer of her awkward stage but it was a doozie!

One of my favorite pics of her at about 7 months old. You can see the gigantic head/forehead I was talking about:

Now:

This is fun! Need more cute baby pics! Step it up, guys!

The transition is a bear. I'm 53 and I'm still wondering why I ever left the womb!
