I have an exciting product to share with those of you who are pregnant or buying baby shower presents. Bellybuds is an amazing way for moms, friends, and family to connect with your baby before he is even born. Bellybuds is a safe and easy way to share music and audio with your baby in utero. A baby’s hearing is fully developed at 20 weeks, why not share music and recorded messages with your baby.
We’ve all heard that music is good for a developing baby both in utero and newborns. Now, you can discreetly play music for your unborn baby.
Bellybuds allows your baby to connect with those that love him like never before. Bellybuds really allow dads to get involved in the pregnancy. Simply record a message and play. This is especially helpful for dads that travel a lot or are in the military. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and all special family members can get close to the baby before birth too! If you are adopting or using a surrogacy mother, the birth mother can play your voice to the baby too. Your baby will already know these special voices as familiar voices at birth. Bellybuds can also help moms with breech babies to help turn the baby.
How I wish I had Bellybuds when I was pregnant with my two kiddos, it is such a fun and creative product. My friend is expecting and was lucky enough to try Bellybuds.
She was amazed at how easy the product is was to use. It comes with a standard 3.5mm audio jack that works with iPods, Zunes, and standard digital music players. There is even an audio splitter so you can listen to the same thing that your baby is listening to. Don’t worry, others cannot hear through the Bellybuds so your messages are private.
Some competitor products are bulky and uncomfortable to use. Bellybuds are easy and convenient to use. Simply remove the the Bellybuds from the bellyphone dock and stick to your belly. There is a hydrogel adhesive ring that is medical-grade hydrogel that allows the product to stick to your skin. Just be sure to place on clean skin with no oils or lotion. There are no bulky belts or contraptions to hook the bellyphones up to your belly. You can even where these in public and nobody will ever know. Bellybuds comes with a case with a clip, so you can easily clip it to your belt, bag, etc to make this product very portable.
When not using the Bellybuds, stick the Bellybuds on the bellyphone dock and back into the storage case.
My friend claims that her baby kicks when he hears the voices and calms when music is played through the bellybuds.
You can purchase Bellybuds on their website for $49.99. Depending on where you live, you may also visit a fine retailer. Check here to see if there is availability in your state.
