Kurdistan needs Baby spa

IMG_8277It has taken me two weeks before I managed to have time to sit down and write on this. In terms of priorities, I haven’t ranked this blog high enough because not enough people seem to show interest in parenting and childcare. This is not to imply that Kurdish parents are not interested in learning about parenting, but perhaps they’re just not as keen on sharing or engaging in discussions regarding this.

Two weeks ago, I took my son, who turned 6 months-old this week to his first session of swimming. It was amazing, thrilling and exhilarating seeing my son swim. At first, it was nerve-wrecking, a million thoughts went through my head. What if he cries — or flips upside down, you never know what could go wrong.

On our way home, it dawned on me that babies in Kurdistan don’t have a spa where they can have water running through their diapers (not literally) — where they can splash water, giggle, swiggle and wiggle. Which is why, I started a new page on this blog, titled “baby spa” and I’m looking for people who are interested in investing in bringing baby spa to Kurdistan.

There are so many benefits to swimming for babies — you can bond with other parents, it is a fun family activity that will bring everyone more closer together and if that doesn’t persuade you, then knowing that you’re teaching your baby a skill is more than enough.

If you’re interested, get in touch!


  1. Dear ruwayda xan
    I really hope u succeed in bringing baby spa here, I just had twin girls and am sad to think we in kurdistan are deprived from many fun activities for babies. Just one question, where did u gwt that neck band for swimming for your son? Ive been looking many stores for it online but cant seem to find it


    1. Hello,

      Thanks for reading the blog. The neck-band was provided by the baby spa. I’ll let you know if I find one online. Apparently they’re not good for the baby’s neck (I found out this later). Perhaps you can try other equipment to use for baby swimming that are safer?
