i found out some usefull info on the net that you can infact stimulate your baby in the womb. they say that from week27 your baby is actually learning because this is when his brain is in full development. there is a limit to what you can do but you can stimulate your baby through sound, light and touch. i never found talking to my baby very comfortable so iv gained a routine daily which i found also helped me bond more with my bump. sounds odd but every day i get a flash light and do an evan number of flashes on my stomach, then i start reading out loud to him whilst stroking and rubbing my belly. he then may get some idea that every time the torch is flashed its reading time and the stroking and rubbing helps to stimulate him more letting him know im reading to him. they say talking to your baby helps stimulate them and helps them learn your voice so it becomes soothing to them outside the womb, so reading for prolonged periods of time surelys gotta help!!!
