The BABY BUM SHOWER is an innovative, ergonomic device that interrupts the pathway of microbial transmission by allowing access to soap and water for anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Specifically designed for the Mum on the go to assist with those nasty nappy changes, the BBS can be used to help clean up any messy situation.
The BBS is a small, hand-held device that delivers soap and water whenever it's needed. It is activated by a simple squeeze of the bottle making it simple and easy to use in the trickiest of situations. It holds enough solution to clean up to 10 wet nappy changes or dirty hands yet is so small you could lose it if your careful.
THE WHY: Unlike traditional spray bottles, the BBS doesn't have a trigger or all of the bulk that goes with it. The BBS is operated by a simple squeeze of the soft, food-grade silicone ergonomic body. The Patent-Pending spray technology, allows the BBS to be small and compact while still delivering hygiene when needed. The BBS is so small it can easily be stored in your handbag or nappy bag without getting in the way.
THE HYGIENE: As registered, practising nurses and mothers, we were well positioned to understand basic hygiene requirements but upon examination of general parental hygiene practises it became apparent, that;
1. They often excluded soap and water.
2. Involved the use of potential skin irritants.
3. Not suitable for sensitive skin conditions.
4. YOU still needed soap and water.
5. Couldn't effectively clean in hard to reach areas.
6. Contributed large amounts of waste to landfill (wipes).
7. No where near EFFECTIVE in cleaning an EXPLOSION.
“Hand washing reduces diarrhoea episodes by 30%, which contributes to 1.8 million deaths annually, especially children under 5 years of age”(Ejemot-Nwadiaro, Ehiri, Arikpo, Meremikwu, & Critchley, 2015).
Poor hygiene both in the cleaning process of changing nappies and long term hand hygiene habits directly contribute to these statistics.
The BBS is designed to be easily integrated into daily cleaning rituals to make it easy to always be healthy and hygienic when dealing with children.
THE NOW: AN ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTION TO WASTE. Not only is the BBS designed to keep you and your baby clean and healthy, it is also designed to help reduce waste associated with baby care by reducing the number of wipes needed to clean your baby.
130 million babies are born each year, requiring a minimum of 6 nappy changes and 6 wipes a day! Over a year that equates to 2,190 wipes and globally 280+ billion wipes into landfill and our environment, and that's just for this years babies.
The BBS removes the needs for the use of baby wipes on No. 1's and reduces the amount needed for No. 2's. It also offers the benefit of washing away and cleaning any residue. The BBS will SAVE you money while helping SAVE the environment.
THE WHERE: The BBS not only offers the convenience of health and hygiene while changing nappies, it's the portable device that can be used whenever you need soap and water.
The baby bum shower fits easily in the palm of your hand. Gentle pressure releases a unique soft spray on your babies bottom, washing away any debris, keeping your baby feeling fresh for longer.
The silicone bottle nests between your thumb and finger, allows for full comfort and control as you juggle your tricky situation.
