A video of newborn twins enjoying a unique Thalasso Baby bath goes viral with over eight million hits.
The twins, a boy and a girl, were only a few days old when they experienced the bath and the video shows how the babies cuddle and embrace each other as if they were still in their mother’s womb.
The newborns cling to each other as they float in a basin of water, cradled by adult hands while water is carefully poured over their forehead and eyes. The bathing technique was invented by Sonia Rochel, a maternity nurse in Paris who came up with the unique bathing method after taking a shower and realizing how lovely it was to have the water running on her face.
She decided to try the technique on babies and noticed how it encouraged them to move just as they would in the womb.
The Thalasso bath is only for babies younger than two months old and should only be carried out by a trained expert.
