It is natural for parents to bond with their babies once they held them in their arms. Parents love cuddling, kissing, and hugging their little ones. However, do you know that you can bond with your baby even while he is still inside your womb? Yes, you can. Here are 13 ways to bond with your baby while inside the womb.
Your baby already knows your voice even while inside the womb. It is the first sound that he hears, and it relaxes him. Sing them your favorite songs, a lullaby, or just any song. Your baby will love it, and who knows, maybe they would remember the songs played to them once they come out.
Listen to Music
Play any kind of music to your baby, may it be classical music or just any music, your baby will enjoy them. Try playing different genres and see how your baby reacts.
Slow dance movement is a good way to bond with your baby. Dancing releases endorphins making the mom feel good, therefore the baby feels good too.
Talk to Your Baby
You might feel awkward talking to your belly at first, but when you do it often, you would notice that it gets better every time. Try talking in a sweet, calm, and loving voice. Your baby will recognize your voice immediately and react to it.
Start reading to your baby early on. You may read them baby books and bedtime stories. Your voice will help soothe them, and they will learn to love books when they grow up.
Call Them By Their Name
Call your baby by his or her name or nickname. You would notice them move as they hear your voice.
Encourage your family members to talk to your baby so they will get accustomed with their voices too.
Meditate or Yoga
Try to rest your baby on your belly and relax. Also try deep calming breaths to connect with your baby through your heartbeats.
Massage Your Belly
Your baby will feel your touch when you do a massage. Frequent massage with your belly with olive oil may help prevent stretch marks.
Start a Journal
Jot down peculiar things during your pregnancy and read them aloud to your baby. You would have fun looking back when your baby grows up.
Do a Belly Cast
This is best done on your third trimester because that is when your belly is the biggest, and when you do the cast, you would have a remembrance once your belly shrinks to its original size. Plus, during casting, there would be touches on your belly that your baby feels.
Book a Maternity Session
A maternity shoot is one great way to bond with your baby, because the main model of the shoot is your baby and you. This is another great memorabilia when your baby grows up.
Schedule a Relaxation
When the mommy is relaxed, the baby inside the womb is also relaxed. This also relieves you from stress. Relaxing during pregnancy helps create a wonderful bond with your baby.
