I have always wondered what my little one is feeling inside my tummy. Is he scared that he is all alone? Does he feel bored being in my womb by himself with no TV shows, movies, or toys to entertain him? And sometimes, I also wonder if he hears my voice every time I talk or sing to him.
Well, I may never know exactly what he is feeling inside, but I have found a way on how I can help ease his worries (if he is feeling that way), anxiety or boredom while he is inside my womb. Thanks to WavHello the maker of Bellybuds, I can now play songs (even classical music) as well as read books (using my voice, his dad’s or any other family members) inside my womb — anytime, all the time!
Bellybuds is like a wearable earphone for the baby bump. These are flat speakers that you can attach to your belly (with the use of skin-safe hydrogel adhesives), and it can deliver soothing music, sounds and even recorded voices to the baby inside your womb.

According to some of the studies, I have come across, playing music to your baby inside the womb can help soothe anxiety. More than that, experts also claim that exposing your baby to music at this stage can also make them smarter!

What I like most about Bellybuds is that it is not like other earphones out there that are too bulky and cumbersome. Since these earphones are specially designed for the belly, it is lightweight and highly portable, so I can play music to my baby even if I am in the car, doing my laundry, cleaning around the house, or writing content on my blogs.

Another feature that I like is it comes with an audio splitter so my baby and I can enjoy simultaneous listening. Just the thought that we are listening to the same music already makes me feel closer to him. There’s also a handy pre and post switch to help adjust the volume.
The “Pre” natal setting has a lower max volume guaranteed to deliver music safely to a baby inside the womb. The “Post” natal setting has a higher max volume to help play soft music, voice messages, and when using BellyBuds as an ambient speaker after the baby is born.
*** both the “Pre” and “Post” switch/setting ensures a maximum level of sound that is safe for a baby in the womb.
Last but not least, I have to give major props for their VoiceShare app (available in the App Store for iOs devices and Google Play for Android devices). It helps parents, as well as loved ones, connect with the baby. They offer a broad range of products in their library as well as one album of free music and one free children’s book you can record in your voice.
I can’t wait to see my baby boy but I know November is still a few months away so for now, the best thing I can do for him is to play music and listen along with him. I hope that it is enough to keep him relaxed and make him feel safe until the day comes that I will get to hold him in my arms!
