An afternoon of spa escape is heaven for most moms. Bringing baby along sounds interesting, but not the least bit relaxing. Unless, you're going to the Thermes de Spa in Belgium and its L'Institut Maman-Bébé in Belgium.

The retreat prides itself on offering new mothers and their wee ones (age two to seven–months) a five–day course of postnatal massage treatments and exercises. While the mom focuses on rejuvenating her body and skin, the baby spends some time with caretakers. No indulgence lasts longer than an hour so mommy guilt — be gone! This spa even brings babe in for some of the mum's activities allowing the two to soak up the pleasures together.

To see how much such a package will cost you,


Adding airfare to Belgium to the $1,500 price tag may sound a tad unreasonable. Babies are the hottest mommy companions these days so we hope that other spas will pick up this fabulous service for mommy–baby duos.

Assuming price weren't an issue, would you want to treat yourself and babe to such a vacation?
