If your neonate is extremely anxious, there is a baby retreat for that..
A new type of resort catering exclusively to infants is gaining popularity.
After opening in February of this year in Houston, Texas, Float Baby has attracted international attention. According to the spa’s proprietor and founder, Kristi Ison, 330 clients have visited thus far, and the service enhances physical and cognitive development “up to fifty percent ahead of non-water counterparts.”
According to the service’s founder, Kristi Ison, physical and cognitive development are enhanced.
Two-week-old to eight-month-old infants levitate for 20 minutes in a small pool while donning impermeable swim diapers and a donut-shaped flotation device around their necks to keep their heads above water. The staff adjusts the size of the inflatable tubes at each visit to ensure the comfort of infants.
According to Ison, the inflatable ring, also known as hydrotherapy, enables infants to move freely while strengthening their muscles and bones. The water is purified and maintained at a comfortable 95-98 degrees Fahrenheit, and the pools are cleaned daily.
A impermeable diaper and an inflatable device are worn by infants.
The infants are then removed from the pool and given a massage by their parents, who are instructed by Ison, a certified instructor in infant massage.
Overall, the service costs $65 and lasts approximately one hour.
Parents perform newborn treatments following pool time.
She told Business Insider that parents consistently report that their infants are resting better, consuming more, and are generally calmer and stronger.
There is currently no research to support Ison’s claim that the water will enhance the neonates’ strength and cardiovascular health more than any other form of exercise. But if the Float Baby reviews are to be believed, parents adore the service, claiming that their children are consuming a healthy diet.
The service is adored by parents, who report that their children are consuming and resting better.
According to NBC News TODAY, Ison received the concept from Baby Spa in Kensington, London, which also offers water immersion and therapies for infants (given by neonatal and pediatric nurses). The service in the United Kingdom costs £60 per hour.
Ison plans to add individual pools for younger infants to her Houston studio this autumn and expects to establish 10 more franchises across the United States by early 2015. Adapt to baby resorts, America.
