Hearing is one of the first senses babies develop in the womb. Many expectant mothers stretch a pair of headphones across their belly, playing music for the baby as a way to lay the foundation for a learning environment. But headphones need to be held in place to be effective and can feel uncomfortable for mommy. The high volumes produced by the headphones might even be damaging for the baby’s ears inside the womb. The Lullabelly provides the perfect solution. Made of ultra-soft and lightweight materials, the Lullabelly can be adjusted to fit the size of growing bellies, allowing it to be used throughout the entire pregnancy. A large pocket on the front on the belt will hold any portable music player, allowing for hands-free listening.
Lullabelly makes sure the volume will not exceed 80dB to protect the baby’s delicate ears. It even includes an audio splitter and earphones for parents and family members to listen in with the baby. When the audio splitter is in the use, the belt and earphones have independent volume levels so parents can pump up their volume without changing the amount of decibels audible by the baby. Simultaneously listening to music with the baby can reduce stress for parents, while promoting fetal development and creating a wonderful bonding experience. Read more
