MWFB: Bellybuds Review


Thanks to my reading, research, and local Pregnancy Center, I know that stimulating baby through voice, sound, and music is very important for bonding and beneficial to their development. B and I talk to baby girl every day to bond with her and baby girl really does seem to respond to our voices. She even seems to respond and like certain types of music more than others that we play for her (sometimes it seems like she is dancing to the beat…lol); however, it isn’t always convenient to crank up the radio or stereo for her to listen and feel the vibrations. That is why I love the idea behind Bellybuds Bellyphones(think “ear buds” for your belly).

Bellybuds™ are wearable speakers for moms-to-be that desire to play music and sounds to a developing child in the womb.

The original bellybuds™ bellyphones audio system (patent-pending) plug into any standard digital music device and are specially designed to adhere gently to the varying curvature of a pregnant belly.

Whether worn descretely beneath clothing or in full view with an optional pair for decorative buddons speaker covers, bellybuds are a convenient and effective option for playing audio to the womb.

Deluxe bellybuds set includes:
~(1) set of bellybuds
bellyphones – to share prenatal music and voices with your baby anytime, anywhere
~(4) sets of Hydrogel Adhesive Rings – to secure the bellybuds to the unique and changing curves of your belly
~(1) set of Silicon Covers
- that dampen the external sound so you play to your baby, not your neighbors
~(1) Storage Pouch – to take your bellybuds anywhere
~(1) Audio Splitter – so you can hear the same audio as your baby

*Adult headphones and mp3 player not included

My Thoughts!
The Bellybuds allow me to conveniently and easily play music for baby girl, without having to blast the speakers of our stereo. All I have to do is peel the bellyphones off of their storing “dock”, attach them to my belly, plug the audio jack into my iPod (or any other digital music player), and let the music play. I love that I even have the option of listening to the music with baby girl by attaching the audio splitter (included with your purchase) and my own ear buds, which is a great bonding experience and how I usually use my bellybuds.

I also love that Bellybuds can be used to introduce baby to the voices and messages of loved ones that are far away during your pregnancy. I am planning on using bellybuds to introduce baby girl to the voice of her Grandma C, who lives in Florida, as soon I get a recorded message from her. :)

Below are photos of me using my Bellybuds and checking out one of my pregnancy books (@ 29 weeks pregnant) :

Thank you Bellybudsfor such a wonderful product! I have really enjoyed my experience so far using the Bellybuds bellyphones to play music and bond with my baby girl.

About Bellybuds
If you ask Curtis Williams (creator and co-founder), the inspiration for bellybuds happened during the 2nd trimester of his wife’s pregnancy with their first child.
“We had read that playing prenatal music to the womb was beneficial – so right around the fifth month, my wife began placing her ipod earbuds on her belly and playing classical music for our daughter. The only problem was that in order to do that, she had to lie on her back and couldn’t move – which is a lot to ask of my multi-tasking wife. It seemed like there was a possibility for something more convenient.”
After searching the internet and finding nothing designed specifically for the playing of prenatal music or other sounds from a digital music player to a developing baby in the womb, Curtis decided to pursue the idea. he contacted a friend who was a product designer to help design and engineer the piece. Initially, he asked him to help make a one of a kind product for his wife, but as they worked on the idea and talked about it with others, Curtis realized that the concept might have a broader appeal. That’s when the endeavor began in earnest to create bellybuds.

For my review, I was graciously sent the Bellybuds – Pregnancy Bellyphones. This allows music to play for the baby inside of the womb. I’ve heard that listening to classical music can stimulate the unborn baby’s brain before, but not anything like this! This is revolutionary! You don’t have to play JUST classical music. You can have the sound of a deployed husband or a family member far away be delivered to your bundle of joy.
The speakers are wearable for moms-to-be that desire to play music and sounds to a developing child in the womb. The original bellybuds bellyphones audio system plug into any standard digital music device and are specially designed to adhere gently to varying curvature of a pregnant belly.
Whether worn discretely beneath clothing or in full view with an optional pair of decorative buddons speaker covers, bellybuds are are a convenient and effective option for playing audio to the womb.
The package includes:
  • 1 set of bellybuds bellyphones
  • 1 bellyphones dock
  • 4 sets of hydrogel adhesive rings
  • 1 audio splitter
  • 1 set of bellybuds buddons
  • 1 neoprene storage pouch
The Bellybuds bellyphones would make a thoughtful gift to any mommy-to-be! If you’re looking for a UNIQUE baby shower gift, why not give that special lady this awesome product? I can’t wait to actually use this with baby number two!
