Article: Would You Bring Your Baby to an Infant Spa?

I didn't know this was a thing, but the more I read this article, the less snarky I got. Float Baby is a spa in Texas that essentially allows you to put your young baby in water for hydrotherapy or neonatal massage.

While I had never heard of this before, I think it could be beneficial. The only downside is the cost--they are citing $65 for an hour, and that sounds kind of nuts, unless there are specialists there that either administer special treatment or can help a young baby in a water-related pool emergency. I'm sure accidents with young babies in a pool must have a contingency plan.

Something seems very natural about letting a baby play in water, and not everyone has the opportunity to do so in a safe environment. What do you think?…

    I thought it was stupid, until I saw this part: Before they can roll over, they want to move and they're not able to - they're either in a carrier or being held

    It makes me wonder if there might be something to it. I do think $65/hour is a bit much, even with supervision... and I wouldn't feel comfortable putting my baby in the pool without being in there with them
