Do You Talk to Your Unborn Baby Everyday?


Most women find it kinda of weird to talk to their unborn babies, because they think it's a waste of time. "After all the baby doesn't know what's going on" or "They feel silly"

That is so untrue. You're living baby knows everything. They have feelings and senses just like we have.

They need to be spoken too throughout the day, if you feel silly or emrbass, don't be. Begin to practice in your private time like in the shower, or on your bed, wherever you have privacy and begin to express your love to your baby now. Look at it like this. You will have too anyway, why not now lol.

I believe talking to your unborn child is healthy and it gives you a good chance to start communicating and having a relationship with your unborn child instantly.

Also touching, massaging and music is good for the baby. All these things are excellent, because nurture and love begins.

I talk to my baby girl all through out the day, and express my love to her.

I say things like: "goodmorning" and I say her name. "we're going to eat now" "we're going for a long walk today" "I describe how she will be" "what she will look like"" we're going having a smooth delivery" etc...

All these things I speak over her life.
I think the best and say positive things to her.

If my day is not going right or if I don't feel right. I express that to her too, sounds crazy but I do. I don't allow myself to stay angry.

Yes I might get upset with a whole lot of things people do or say, or even the things I do myself, but I learn to overcome certain situations and don't let it get the best of me for my baby. I want a happy baby, not a cranky baby.

So ladies, I would like to know how do you feel about talking to your baby?

i believe mother and baby has connection, so I talk to my baby since i felt the first kick. Some mornings I said "morning baby, are you awake? Give mummy a kick or do summer salt " and then my baby moves. It's an amazing feeling. I like to touch my belly as well when i'm talking to my baby.
Tomorrow I'm going to have a scan, I'm half way through my pregnancy now.

Wow! Nice topic!

I talk to baby as much as I possibly can. I am unfortunately a quiet person though so changing over from not speaking at all to constantly speaking is tricky. Especially at work where I sit in an open office on my own.

I talk more in private because I get annoyed with the reactions I get. If I talk to baby around DH I usually get a 'What??" from him then have to explain that I wasn't talking to him. LOL

At work I get odd looks.. and people know I'm pregnant!!! But If I'm caught talking to baby I'm looked at like a mental patient! Unbelievable!

I quite often tell the baby what I'm doing. I've said good morning a few times.... usually to have a mumbled half asleep "morning" come from the other side of the bed

Codiontour: As far as I know the baby starts hearing from around 15 weeks. However it starts to hear your heartbeat and othe body noises and your voice. Not quite outside noises just yet. Unfortunately I don't know when they can start hearing those.

yip, i chat to my baby. I've already staretd reading hima few short stories too. I read that if the baby is used to hearing stories in teh womb it can help them concentrate if you then read while when breast feeding later on - I guess they get used to my reading / story telling voice and not the actual storyline itself!!

My OH talks to or reads to baby too. Every day I whip up my t-shirt and he talks to the baby through the "belly-phone" (through my belly button!!). "Hello baby, this is daddy again, on teh belly.phone...". I love it. Each time he chats on the belly-phone i am so happy so I'm sure baby is inundated with happy-hormones. He's bound to associate daddy's voice with being happy!

I think you are right...i think it's very important. I actually haven't really thought about it much tho...(until now of course). I don't talk to my baby just yet, as i'm not showing much. But I'm sure i will when the baby gets bigger.

I talk to her more if I'm upset. That's quite bad but she's quite good at cheering me up. All it takes is a little kick.
