All in all, being a baby seems like a pretty sweet gig— you get to take unlimited naps, all of your food is brought directly to your mouth, and you don't even have to wipe your own butt. All you have to worry about is tummy time, lookin' cute, and not scratching your adorable little face with your razor-sharp baby fingernails. However, an Australia-based salon called Baby Spa Perth wants to make being a baby even more relaxing, and offers spa services for tiny humans between six days and six months old.
The spa services include floating around in a warm bath for anywhere between 10-30 minutes with the aid of this floatation device adorably named "The Bubby."
Some babies look like they love it.
While others are a bit more skeptical
Regardless how you feel about baby spas in general, these pictures of chubby cheeks and buoyant babies are SO. DARN. CUTE.
But Baby Spa Perth doesn't just do the "floating baby" thing. They also offer baby massages, and honestly, they look relaxing AF.
I know what you're thinking: uhhhhhhh, why? Well, here are the benefits of bringing your gurgling poop machine to a Baby Spa according to the Baby Spa Perth website.
One of the initial benefits you will observe is that your baby will be able to move around freely in warm water, which is impossible to do on land at a very young age due to gravity and constant constraints from bassinets, swaddles, clothing and pushchairs. Secondly, as your baby moves against the resistance of the water, their musculature and skeletal strengthens as the spine unfolds. Hydrostatic pressure of water on your baby’s body will result in the deepening of his/her breathing. This pressure also stimulates their circulatory system.
One 45-minute session consisting of hydrotherapy and an infant massage will set you back $85 (a.k.a. about 400 diapers), but hey, parents! Make sure you are taking care of yourself, too. If anyone deserves to float around in warm bath by their neck without a care in the world, it's you.
