These Babies Enjoying A Day Spa Are Already More Pampered Than You Will Ever Be
While you're busy working and being stressed AF all the time, groups of babies are being pampered from head to toe as if their lives aren't already easy enough.
Have you ever seen an actual day spa for babies? Well, they exist. Prepare to fall into a deep, deep pit of depression, my friends.
Thanks to the Baby Spa in Perth, Australia, babies ages 2 days old to 6 months old can kick back and relax like kings and queens.
On the menu are steam treatments, massages and facials starting at just $66 per appointment.
Parents can stay and hang out with their kids, too.
The spa's official website reads,
Baby Spa Perth is a sanctuary for babies (newborn to six months) and their parents, offering unique hydrotherapy sessions, baby massage and support.
The hydrotherapy sessions are said to help increase with skeletal and muscular strength.
Hydrotherapy is also said to help with a baby's lung capacity as well as their digestive system.
Ah, if I could go back in time before I even knew what an office chair was...
Admit it: The jealousy is real right now!
I've never wanted to be 2 days old again so bad before... Must be nice!
Oh, just rub it in why don't you?!

Despite all of the different ways aquatic therapy has been said to be beneficial for newborn babies, board-certified pediatrician at Providence Saint John's Health Center, Shahrouz Ganjian MD, spoke to Women's Health, saying,
The only place where aquatic therapy is shown to be beneficial is in kids with developmental delays. Research doesn't show that it is or isn't beneficial in normal kids so, as of now, I can't recommend it.
In other words, the hydrotherapy and overall spa experience isn't necessarily bad for a newborn baby, but there isn't enough research out there yet to say it's good for them, either.
Still, he says what Baby Spa Perth offers is a great bonding experience for parents and their children.
BRB, I'm going to hop in a time machine and go back a couple of decades!
