Ever since I could imagine myself as an expectant mom, I've always said that I would play music for my baby in the womb. I remember when I was 6 years old seeing my mother
play classical music for my little brother who was still in her belly. When he finally made his debut, my mom would play classical music in his nursery to soothe him, and it was like magic - it worked! He remembered those sounds from the belly and responded to them. To this day, any time my little brother (even as an adult) is in a room with classical music playing he falls asleep. Anyway, your baby might not be able to make their own music yet, but they can definitely hear what's going on and it leaves a lasting impression.
Enter Bellybuds Baby-Bump Sound System
. This product is a no-brainer for expectant moms. Instead of having the hassle of putting regular headphones on your belly for your baby to hear music, this specially made sound system adheres directly to your belly and allows you to play music at a safe sound level.
So upon first using the Bellybuds, I realized why it's such a great addition to any expectant mom's product arsenal. Here's what makes it stand out:
The belly buds come with little sticky round adhesives for you to adhere the buds to your stomach. This makes the whole system easily portable because you don't have to worry about the buds falling off while you go for a walk or even ride the train. It also makes it easy for moms with tummies growing out of control
- Sound Control.
One of the main things I was worried about with putting headphones on my belly is whether or not my baby would get potential damage to growing ears with the music being too loud. Bellybuds has two sound controls (pre-partum and post-partum) so you can adjust the sound for before and after baby is in the womb
- Voiceshare Membership
. I LOVE the fact that once you purchase the product you're enrolled in their Voiceshare program. This basically allows you to record a message for your baby and then have it sent to you to download onto your mp3 or digital device. It is REALLY cool. And you can invite family & friends! So even if hubby is away on a business trip, he can still read your little one a story.
Here's what's included in the Bellybuds Sound System:
1 Set of bellybuds to share prenatal music and voices with your baby anytime, anywhere
2 Pairs of Adhesives to secure the bellybuds to the unique and changing curves of your belly
1 Audio Splitter so you can hear the same audio as your baby
1 Storage Pouch to take your bellybuds anywhere
Voiceshare Access Code (free membership to their voice recording network)
Overall, this is a GREAT product for expecting moms. Let me know if you plan on giving it a try!
