The small newborn featured in this clip is Lucas. He is just five days old. Babies can find it hard to adjust while transitioning out of their mother’s womb into the real world. The comfort and ease that their mom’s womb provides is unparalleled, so the first few days can be really hard sometimes.
But a new product called The Tummy Tub has been acting as a brilliant substitute for a mother’s womb. It was developed in Holland and is created in the shape of a woman’s womb. When newborns are gently put inside it with warm water, it makes them feel safe again and it also calms them down.
Lucas is calm when we first see him in the video. He’s inside the Tummy Tub, in warm water, and after splashing around a bit, he lets out a big yawn. Somebody’s getting sleepy. That’s exactly what he does, too. Within a minute, he is asleep while mom carefully holds his head up out of the water. It doesn’t look very comfortable for mom, but if soothing the baby is paramount, then this gadget seems to work.
The tub can also soothe indigestion, gas, and colic babies. It stimulates cognitive and physical development too. It is great for the environment as well since it doesn’t use much water or energy to keep the water at just the right temperature for the baby.
