People Can’t Handle How Cute These Baby Spa Photos Are

After a long day, sometimes you just need a warm bath and a good massage to take the edge off – especially if you’re a baby.

Baby Spa Perth in Western Australia offers high-class hydrotherapy and massages exclusively for clients under 6 months old, and they even boast their own patented flotation device, known as the Bubby. Not only are these mini-baths insanely adorable, they’re relaxing for little ones and help prepare them for swimming lessons. Photos from the spa are making the rounds on the Internet, and people can barely contain their baby fever – 11.5k followers have already flocked to their Instagram page.

Though Baby Spa Perth is the first of its kind in Australia, it joins a line of international franchises. Spa founder, Laura Sevenus, also operates baby spas in England, South Africa, and Spain.

More info: Baby Spa Perth, Instagram, Facebook

Baby Spa Perth is Australia’s first bath and massage parlor exclusively for – you guessed it – babies

Here, babies kick and float around to their heart’s delight in a warm bath with soft waves

The spa even boasts its own patented flotation device, the Bubby, which keeps babies comfy and safe

The experience allows parents and babies to bond in a relaxing environment for both parties

Not only is it adorable, but hydrotherapy for babies is extremely beneficial to their health

In the water, babies can move freely, which helps them develop muscle and bone strength

The sensations they feel while floating also prepare them for swimming lessons, and even walking

Plus, let’s be honest – it’s tough work being a brand new person, and sometimes you just need to relax

After their baths, babies are given a gentle massage with grape seed oil, moisturizing their skin

The water they float in is purified with ozone, which kills bacteria in shared basins, but is baby-safe

11.5k followers have already flocked to their Instagram page, and their photos are giving everyone baby fever

Though it’s the first of its kind in Australia, Baby Spas also exist in England, South Africa, and Spain

the babies are practically weightless in the water, the support not only keeps them afloat, but it keeps their necks stationary, which is very important. My friend's son did something similar in physical therapy as a baby. The babies love it!

For those complaining about the flotation device don't worry. It's medically approved equipment and is perfectly safe. It is used by many people who have kids who are paralysed or have brain injurys. The baby is fully supported and it does not hurt them at all. I mean do any of those kids look in pain? It's paid for by insurance too and as I said medically approved and maybe designed too. Stop panicking.

Medical proven for how long? Lord knows how.many things are medically proven then disproven years later. These poor babies are test dummies. I would never risk my babies welfare for comfort. I see no hands close to these babies in case of emergency either. I won't stop panicking over it. You must be one of those ninnys thar puts way too much faith in the medical field...enjoy that bubble your floating on, I feel bad for you when it pops

Water floating will NOT increase bone strength, weightbearing does that. But they do move freely and the water resistance is good for muscle development.

90% of their body weight is supported when submerged up to the neck. So little weight to pull on their necks.

How come its always the smart foreigners that come up with these incredible ideas? Have we no foresight in the U.S. Its no wonder we are the way we are, LOUD, rude, excessive, etc... If I could have once been one of these babies I probably wouldn't have turned out to be such a worrier, I worry about everyone and it just wears me out and helps no one. Floating and kicking and just being free may have led me to a less stressful life, who knows?

Capitalist vultures. Babies don't need massages and certainly shouldn't have oils put on their skin as they are still developing. It is unnatural and will upset the natural make-up of the skin, leading to a dependency on it (which is what moisturisers are mainly manufactured for anyway).

Huh?? Their skin is going to become dependent on the oil and that's why moisturizers are manufactured??? Um, ok then...

Because twisting a little kid's spine around the way it's not meant to be is a "smart" thing to do? Show us the data. How is this even halfway safe? Those little bones are so fragile, and their nervous systems are still forming - what kind of moron would think that strapping them into an obviously unsafe position like that would "help"?
