I first encountered the term baby spa when I saw the agenda our relocation consultant gave us for our Singapore induction. I was a bit curious since this was not something that is widely known in the UK. BabySPA is the most common brand a session includes a swimming session, a massage and a haircut. The whole experience is supposed to stimulate the physical and mental development of the baby.
Here’s my version of it – you will need:
A place to swim – babySPA has lukewarm water but my daughter likes hot water
A floatation device which goes around the baby’s neck
Toys – although I seem to enjoy this more than my daughter
and last but not least… a baby!
This also doubles as bath time!
A trial session at the babySPA is $45++ which includes swimming and a massage. My version is $17 which includes the flotation device ($12) and toys ($5). I use Mustela massage oil but olive oil works great as well.
