Baby Hiccups In The Womb

Welcome to the July 2012 Carnival of Natural Parenting: Family Creations

This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Carnival of Natural Parenting hosted by Hobo Mama and Code Name: Mama. This month our participants have shared crafts, recipes, and philosophies of creativity. Please read to the end to find a list of links to the other carnival participants.

***

Family creations can start even before baby is born and here’s what my daughter and I produced for the occasion:

Many doctors and scientists now agree that bonding with your baby can start way before their birth. Apart from enjoying her hiccups (not just me – also family and friends!) I often sing to her, dance with her, read books to her, let her listen to a musical pendant when I walk and of course her dad and I talk to her plenty.

HOW ARE YOU BONDING WITH YOUR UNBORN BABY? PLEASE SHARE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW :)

    Oh my goodness, that is the cutest! My fondest memories of pregnancy are when Miles would shift his butt an move my whole stomach. It was wild. I love the idea of capturing it on video. :D
