A Royal Baby

In the next month or so we will all be hearing the news that the Royal baby has made his or her way into the world. Kate will be giving birth in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington West London, the same hospital that William was born in.

When I had Leo I discovered just how important those first few weeks are in getting to know your little one, I can not begin to imagine how the Royal couple will juggle a new baby and being followed around by the watchful public eye. As if those first few weeks are not stressful enough with everyone wanting to come and meet the latest addition.

Around the time of the royal birth, Kate and Will are going to be receiving another very special delivery. have designed a very beautiful Windsor collection baby bath

Bath specifications:
• Made from 4mm of pure acrylic 
• Reinforcement in the base and around the shoulders made from polystone resin. 
• The bath weighs 10 kg and can hold up to 70 litres of water. It’s just the right size for a 
new born. 
• 680mm in length by 410 width by 460 mm in height. 

The bath will be engraved with the baby’s name and delivered from Watford to Clarence House in the next few weeks in preparation. The bath features a classic golden ball claw-foot tub and a smooth roll top design.

There will be a number of these extra special bath's produced so that members of the public can bestow the royal experience on their own children. As beautiful as this bath is....It comes at a price and is instantly out of the budget I allowed for a baby bath when expecting Leo, at £399 this bath really is fit for royalty! have been speaking to Susannah Wheeler, a Midwife from One to One Midwives. Susannah said “Like all first time parents, Kate and William will be keen to spend as much time with their baby as possible. The days when a Royal mother would not be on hand to look after her children is long gone. My advice for the parents to be is just to enjoy it!”

Susannah also commented “Moments away from the public eye will be treasured by a high profile family like this, so the more attachment they can form with the baby early on, the better. Newborns can typically see from an adult’s chest to face where they can respond and recognize your 
face, so bathing is an ideal experience to build memories and bond.”

Susannah explains the importance of baby bathing techniques:

Bathing a newborn can be a fun and special time for both child and parents. However it's also a 
time for caution, though. Kate should keep these bathing tips in mind to keep the royal heir safe.
- Water temperature should be roughly body temperature.
- Judge the your baby’s water temperature using your wrist not your palm, as this area is 
more used to heat exposure and will be less sensitive. 
- Baby bathing books often recommend buying a thermometer but this is not essential. 
- My suggestion is that early evening time is usually a time for bathing that sets up a good 
routine and relaxes them before bedtime. 
- Daily bathing isn't essential, and certainly no more than once a day is advised as this 
could dry the skin too much.

So for now we will all continue to wait for the royal announcement, the announcement that will see the next heir to the throne entering the world.
