I love all of the youtube videos of cute dancing babies. In case you missed them all here’s one of my favorites:
It’s kind of a given that my child is going to have to dance around and be cute for me… Cause it’s adorable and funny and that’s just what babies are suppose to do!… Bounce around and entertain me in their adorable little diaper bottoms!
I’m trying to give Spawnie a head start now by tuning into good music on the radio when I’m driving in the car. I was so excited when I saw my pregnancy update saying that Spawnie could probably hear now! Then I started to crank up the music some more and picture him/her listening to it.
I started to wonder how I could get Spawnie to listen to music more often (I know, for some reason I’m really into this concept) and I didn’t dare break my headphones in half trying to fit them across my stomach, but I found this cool prenatal music belt called Lullabelly. You can listen to music and there’s a little speaker in the pouch that points towards your belly and plays the music to your baby too!
I read more about pregnancy music and read that it’s good for mommy and baby, plus it’s a fun way to bond! I’ve had several friends tell me while they listened to certain songs, or played guitar/sang certain tunes etc. and their baby REMEMBERED them after birth! Well… Recognized at least, and they’d stop crying or quiet down when they’d hear it. Have you heard of that too? I promise I’m not crazy. I really want to test this out on Spawnie!
Lullabelly was nice enough to send me my choice in color for a prenatal music belt and I choose the green even though they have blue and pink too cause I’m still not sure what Spawnie is (MONDAY people… MONDAY!!). Green is more boyish to me still but since I have a feeling Spawnie is a boy I went with it, plus, I’m wearing it not the baby.
I was SO EXCITED. When I got it in the mail. Right away I was impressed with how soft it was and how big the pouch was. My iPhone fits in it fine, though it’s a tight squeeze when I zip it up with the adapter and everything.
The strap is celcro so it’s very adjustable. I’m VERY small compared to the average user (for now) so I have to more than overlap the straps a little but it stays on just fine. You can wear it over or under your clothing. I prefer under, and since I wear an undershirt anyway, I put it between that and my top.
I’ve pretty much worn it every day since I bought it. I can’t clean without music and it arrived at perfect timing during this nesting spurt I’m going through so I strapped it on and cleaned out my ENTIRE closet! Then I reorganized it to be color-coordinating!
I’ve worn it out when I’m on walks with Snoop. I dunno why but it’s more fun and exciting to exercise, clean etc, when I picture Spawnie dancing right along with me.
I seriously LOVE my Lullabelly… And they aren’t paying me to say that. It’s probably one of my favorite pregnancy items so far. I think partly because I love music so much but I personally have no musical talent. This is a nice way to get Spawnie accustomed to good music but not have to torture him/her with my singing.
-Plugs into your ipod or Mp3 player
-Encourages learning, language and memory skills
-Play the same music after birth for better sleeping habits
-Speaker projects volume at a safe level (so much so that I couldn’t hear it until I put my ear up to it.)
You can BUY a deluxe package Lullabelly for $55. It comes with the band, the removable speaker, the split adapter for your headphones and a pair of headphones! The Standard Package without the adapter and headphones is just $49.
You can WIN a Lullabelly in a color of your choice right here on my blog! Just leave a comment telling me what kind of music you’d listen to on your Lullabelly or what you’d use it for.
