There are so many ways you can bond with your unborn child during pregnancy. Making a connection with your baby during pregnancy can strengthen your bond with him or her. There are numerous ways you can do it.
Ultrasound: Our favorite is ultrasounds. Ultrasounds can make a pregnancy feel more real. Regardless of how many weeks you are. Especially for dads and siblings. It allows you to put a face and even personality behind moms growing belly. 3D/4D (HD live/ 5D) ultrasounds are the best way for allowing moms and family members to see the baby’s facial characteristics as clear as possible. Gender determination ultrasounds provide information on your baby’s sex as early as 13 weeks. And even an early first trimester ultrasound allows you to visualize your growing baby and his/her heartbeat.
Reading: Reading or talking to your baby is also great for bonding. During this process baby can hear mom or dads voice. Not only will mom and dads voice become familiar and comforting but the story might end up sounding familiar as well!
Singing: Just like reading, signing to your baby is great for bonding. The comfort and familiarly of your voice and the song is soothing and relaxing to your little one. Or you can even play upbeat music and your baby may respond by enjoying the tune with you while kicking away in there.
Playing: When you know baby is awake and active you can play a little game of tag with him or her. Feel something poking out, gently poke it back. Baby will be aware of your presence and may even poke you back again.
Pregnancy Journal: This is a great way to record your feelings, milestones, hopes and dreams for your little one. It’s something that will help you bond but also can be shared or passed down to your child when he or she is older.
Shopping/ nesting: preparing for baby can be fun. Looking at tiny baby clothes and baby gear can just melt your heart. Just imagine picturing your little one in all those teeny tiny clothes and shoes! Setting up a nursery room or area in your room can be a bonding experience also. Preparing a space for your baby helps you to prepare emotionally and get excited about your new addition.
