This day spa gives babies something to sigh about.

Baby Spa Perth, which indulges overwhelmed infants with hydrotherapy and grape seed oil massages, has got grownups whining that life’s not fair. The wee wellness center is part of a growing global franchise first started in South Africa that pampers those still in Pampers with hour-long sessions for $65.

 

Look, little ones have it hard. Sure, we feed them, cuddle them and clean up after them. But they’re adjusting to life outside the womb, where lights are bright, sounds are loud, and their developing little bodies are often suffering from constipation and colic. They need a spa day.

And Baby Spa Perth delivers by swaddling babies (newborn to six months) in its patented Bubby flotation device. It’s basically an inflatable inner tube exclusive to the spa that fits loosely around an infant’s neck to support her head and her float her own pod of warm water purified by reverse osmosis. Swim diapers and swimsuits are also provided by the spa, so there’s no worry about little accidents.

Then after about 10 or 15 minutes in the pool, depending on the baby’s tolerance, little ones are wrapped in a soft, warm towel and given gentle massages using grapeseed oil from South Africa. The soaking and the stroking are supposed to stimulate the digestive and circulatory systems to relieve colic and constipation, as well as to relax babies so that they sleep better. And the gentle resistance of the pool water reportedly builds muscular and skeletal strength in baby’s growing body.

 

And because parents are on hand for these tiny spa treatments, the sessions are also supposed to provide quality bonding time with baby, and help new moms and dads better read a baby’s cues.

Oh, and there’s perks for parents, too, like a cozy nursing room for breastfeeding and catching up with other moms, tea and water to sip, and a support staff of neonatal and pediatric nurses on hand to answer any questions. There’s no hot tubs or massage sessions for the adults, however. These babies really do have it all.
