It’s never too early for a baby to start listening to music, so you might as well get started when it’s still in the womb. If you want him or her to have a great taste in music, and plan to make the baby listen while he’s still swimming in amniotic fluid, then the Bellybuds are exactly what you need.
Developed by the eponymous company, the Bellybuds are the #1 best selling prenatal monitoring device on Amazon, so that must say something about how good it is. This particular item also makes a great pregnancy gift, so if you’re not the one carrying the bump, you can still make someone very happy.
The Deluxe package includes 10 pairs of reusable, medical-grade, skin-safe hydrogel adhesive, which should last you about five months. I’m pretty sure that it’s useless to make the bun in your oven listen to music prior to the fifth month of pregnancy, so buying more pairs of adhesive doesn’t really make any sense.
Besides the hardware, Bellybuds also come with a Premium subscription to VoiceShare, an online platform for recording and sharing voice messages. The included spliter comes in handy when you also want to listen what your baby does. A downloadable Rock-A-Belly Music Album is also provided, in case you run out of ideas.
Using the adhesive, you can easily attach the custom speakers to the belly. Connect the 3.5mm plug to a smartphone, tablet or mp3 player and relax while the sound are transmitted to the womb. Don’t worry, it won’t be loud at all, but just gentle enough to make sure that the baby enjoys the tunes. Best of all, the Bellybuds can be worn all day long beneath the clothes, as they won’t bother you at all.
Bear in mind that the Bellybuds do not and cannot replace proper medical care during pregnancy. They do not represent a treatment, and you still need to see your doctor as scheduled. On top of that, you should talk to your doctor about Bellybuds before using them, to make sure that they are safe for you. In case everything is fine and the medical practitioner gives you the green light, you can head over to Amazon and order the Deluxe pack for $49.99. Packages with additional pairs of adhesive are available at an additional cost.
