How To Communicate With An Unborn Baby
It’s the coolest thing! If you are looking for some new ways to communicate and connect with your bun in the oven, read on for some ideas and tips.
1. Talk To Your Baby
This one is pretty obvious, but it really is one of the most important things you can do. Talking with your unborn baby is a great way to grow closer.
Your baby will learn to recognize your voice and will start to react to it. As soon as your baby is born, he or she will instantly recognize your voice and your bond will grow even stronger.
2. Listen To Music
Another great way to bond and communicate with your baby is to listen to music. Just put the headphones on your belly and jam away. (Not too loudly, of course!)
You will find that your baby has his or her own taste in music, and will move in response to the music you play. This is a really cool and fun way to bond with your little one.
3. Shine The Light
When it’s close to your due date, your baby will be mature enough to do this with you. Simply take a flashlight and press it to your belly.
Your baby will be able to see the bright light, and it will probably look a lot like the sun does to us. Some babies move in response to the light, try to get near it, or even chase it. So much fun to do.
4. The Power Of Touch
Don’t be afraid to massage your belly, and in turn, your baby as well. When your baby kicks or moves, take that as a cue that your baby is awake and moving, and give him or her a little massage.
Babies will often roll around or kick in response. You can also tap your belly to see if your baby kicks or taps back in response. Many babies in the womb enjoy this type of game.
5. Read To Your Baby
Chances are, you already know how important reading to your baby is once they get here, but have you thought about reading to your baby while they are still in the womb? Pick up a few of your favorite kid’s story books, and read your baby a bedtime story at the end of a long day.
The best part? Once your baby arrives, you can continue to read the same story, and when he or she gets older, you can tell them how you have been reading that book to them since before they were even born. So much fun.
