Now that I am 23 weeks pregnant it is becoming much easier to feel the baby move, for me but also for hubby and the other kids. The twins are often trying to feel the baby’s little kicks and rolls with their tiny hands, sometimes they claim to feel movement that wasn’t there but that doesn’t spoil their excitement. I wonder if the baby will recognise all these little voices that talked to him/her all the time through my tummy?

Research has shown that babies are able to recognise and remember familiar voices and sounds they were exposed to when in the womb, you can start creating those early memories from as early as 20 weeks. How special would it be to see your newborn respond to your favourite CD or a nursery rhyme daddy used to sing during the pregnancy? Bellybuds gives expecting parents a helping hand with their cleverly designed ‘bellyphones’, allowing you to play music to your baby hands-free.

To get started simply plug your Bellybuds into any standard digital music player and place the two round bellyphones on your bump using the skinsafe, form-fitting hydrogel adhesive rings. Now you are ready to play your favourite nursery rhyme, your most loved CD, a classical tune or a voice recording from dad or grandparents, or why not make your own personal baby play list?

Bellybuds kit ($49) contains everything you need (except for the digital music player of course) including an audio splitter so mum can listen to the sound at the same time as the baby. Bellybuds ‘bellyphones’ are discreet and compact, so you can wear them under your normal clothes and still do your regular activities, although personally I like the sound of a relaxing lay-down with baby on the couch a lot more!

  5. I’d definitely play classical music. Maybe some Mozart, Beethoven and Vivaldi. Some jazz to mix it up and some Greek music so it isn’t shocked by Daddy’s music when they finally arrive!
