The idea for the Tummy Tub came from a young mother, Anita Belderok, in the Netherlands. Bathing babies in buckets had been endorsed by Dutch midwives and maternity nurses since the 1950's. For Dutch midwives and maternity nurses this ‘bucket therapy’ was already common practice, as they had found out that newborns were much more comfortable being bathed in a bucket, than in the mini-size version of the adult bath.
Most babies have trouble adapting to their new world after being in mother’s womb for nine months. Noise, bright lights, less control of movement due to gravity at full force, hunger, thirst, digestion of food and a sensation of being lost in space without physical support have to be coped with. This causes a lot of uneasiness for newborn infants. The resemblance of the mother’s womb in size, warmth all over the body, a sheltered environment, support from the sides and bottom, as well as sitting in a familiar fetal position quickly calms baby down. Due to the smaller water surface, the water also stays warm longer.
The initial idea won ‘Dutch Idea of the year’ in 1993. It was further developed and designed with the help of midwives, nurses, child psychologists, child physiotherapists, ob-gyns and pediatricians in the Netherlands to improve upon the initial idea and design of Tummy Tub. Because of the well hewn design, parents can hold baby with one hand and use the other to wash baby. Naturally, Tummy Tub was designed with smooth edges and is made of the most baby friendly materials. This is the reason why it has passed every safety regulation all over the world and comes out as ‘simply the best’ in every test against competitive products. Not to mention it has been used in neonatal and maternity wards all over the world! Therefore, Tummy Tub can truly claim to be second best (with mother's womb being the undisputed first). Welcome to the world... nearly as nice as mommy’s tummy!
