It's good to let things breathe in your imagination because often your initial response to it is not the best thought-through response. I savour little glimpses of life. Mine and those of people who turn me sideways and around. Friend or stranger. Even a child. (the world looks different from down there) Sometimes an author, photographer, artist. I let things saturate and incubate here. Hopefully, deeper meanings can percolate up and flower.

The Tummy Tubbers!

IS BABY HAVING buckets of fun splishing-n-splashing, takin' a bath?

Imagine Baby soaking in the bubbles like a little Buddha in a jacuzzi - with his little head bobbing about on top.

Imagine how psycho Baby's gonna get with The Tummy Tubbers - the latest must-have for all modish parents and their infants.

And apparently, it's is also fun to do with all the neighbors. Look..


Tummy Tubbers!
Posted by Hello

No, this isn’t about a new gang of kickass terrakids come to give the gurgling (and controversial) teletubbies or the drooling rugrats da big boot.

It’s about
TummyTub®, a cute bucket Dutch invention based on the theory that babies hate being on their back in water because they feel vulnerable. This cute lil bath bucket lets Baby adopt the natural and relaxed foetal position to recreate* a womb-like atmosphere to simulate* the amniotic experience. Baby can sit up 'surrounded' and supposedly feeling 'safer'. It's touted to be soothing, less stressful and apparently the water stays warmer longer too.

Trust the Dutch to come up with pseudo* stuff like this... Dutch courageDutch treatDutch wife… Double Dutch… and
more Dutch stuff.

james,
Not quite sure if you meant Jesse's or these tummy tubbers. Can't blame you if it was the former cos your lil man, he looks so cheeky in his tin tub.

thquah,
true, true. But it seems this is being recommended by paedatricians in the UK. Google tummy tub for reviews.
I clearly recall my aunt used a normal wash pail for my cousin's bath when she was lil... as she grew, she got a bigger pail. when she stood gripping the sides and was in danger of falling over, she got a low shallow tub. :P

yeah i wonder too like thquah. just use the normal washing pail will do - save money... unless there's some special 'features' to the tummy tub like anti slippery, soft cushionny pad, nice design and so on.
