When it comes to pregnancy, as every expecting mom knows, the reality of it doesn’t honestly hit until you’re able to see, hear and feel your baby.
That’s the great thing about ultrasounds. Although the picture is a bit blurry, you still get a feel for what your baby looks like and see it in action as it bounces in rhythm. A total “ahhh” moment!
Then with every monthly check-up you get the opportunity to hear your baby’s heartbeat as it pitter-patters into your own heart. It truly helps build a closer bond between you and your child. The only thing is, these visits leave you wanting more.
Have you ever wished you could bottle up those events and keep them forever? Well, with the My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear you can do just that — except you preserve your child’s heartbeat inside an adorable plush bear, lamb or other toy where you can listen to your baby’s heartbeat anytime, anywhere.
When I first learned about these awesome products I couldn’t wait to check them out. I mean I love the concept and guess what, I have a bit of an announcement to make…ok, a huge announcement.
My daughter Gina is pregnant and I’m going to be a nonna (grandma) for the first time in August (her due date is August 23rd). SQUEAL!!!! You have no idea how excited I am!
Gina’s first ultrasound was on February 5th and it couldn’t have came soon enough for her. She was beyond ready to see and hear her baby… and so was I. hehee!
When I first laid eyes on my grand baby oh my goodness, my eyes welled up with tears. I think my hubby had watery eyes also but I didn’t say anything. I just let him enjoy the moment. Gina was speechless for the first time in her life. She had a glow about her and a smile on her face. It was a beautiful moment. And then, we heard the heartbeat. Amazing!
That 10 minutes unfortunately came and went too fast. We didn’t want to leave. But, thankfully I had taken our little red ‘heart’ from our My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear with us to this appointment so I could record the bambino’s heartbeat.
It’s really very simple. Each My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear or other plush comes with a small plastic ‘heart’ that is used as a recording device at one of your ob check-ups (when a fetal doppler is used). To use the device you just follow these easy steps:
Check out this Demo…
1.) My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear lil lamb 2.) Remove plastic tab
3.) Slide lever to R for record, then P for play after recording 4.) Squeeze heart to record heartbeat
Once you’ve got the recording you want to keep, place a piece of good quality tape over the lever so that you don’t accidentally record over your baby’s heartbeat. Then turn the plush over, open the velcro backing and insert the plastic heart inside your plush toy. Reseal the velcro and you’re ready to start listening to your baby’s heartbeat.
1.) Open velcro backing 2.) Expose plush insides
3.) Insert plastic heart 4.) Squeeze to hear heartbeat
To play, give your plush a squeeze around his tummy. And there it is, whenever you want to hear it, no matter where you are.
The My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear plush would make an awesome baby shower gift for any expecting parent— giving them the opportunity to preserve a memorable step in time. One that they can keep for a lifetime. These are some of my own most treasured memories. I only wish these existed when I was pregnant!
My Baby’s Heartbeat Bears come in a variety of styles and sizes from an adorable angel bear and military bear, to a pink owl and green turtle. We obviously chose the lil lamb which measures 9″ high. She’s super soft and oh so sweet!
