    You kno the gel that you get with it, gets really annoying having to clean it all up after well.... why dont you use bio oil instead!?!?! That way your using it more and also you just rub it in and it doesnt make such a mess. It works really well so the doppler glides :)


    I swear my baby is making me smart

    I think I'm going the opposite way and baby is stealing my brain cells :rofl:

    When I bought my doppler I didn't have any gel so I've been using Aloe Vera Aftersun Gel then I can just rub it in afterwards and it smells nice. Never though of using bio oil so will have to get some

    I use bio oil too - I listen to my baby every morning and evening before I properly rub it in.

    I've just been using water with mine. It doesn't glide, but I hear everything just fine.

    Yes, you can hear your heartbeat with the doppler. If you think it might be yours you can put your fingers to the pulse on your neck. If it matches, then you know its yours that you are hearing. Yours will be slower and sound fairly normal. The baby's tends to sound like a train or horses galloping.
