Sponsor Spotlight *Sound Beginnings* #ABE2

     I am so excited to introduce you to my first sponsor for A Blogtastic Extravaganza 2.0.  Sound Beginnings is a soft fabric band with built in high quality speakers that allows pregnant women to play music in the womb.  The fabric band fits over a woman's pregnant belly, the band has a small little pocket in the front to hold a MP3 player.  You then attach the wires to your MP3 player and your baby can hear the music your playing.  There is also a headphone splitter included so mom can hear the same as baby.   The high quality speakers are designed to keep the sound at a safe level for baby in the womb.  There are no batteries required, just what your MP3 player requires.  The Sound Beginnings Band is machine washable.
     When I was pregnant with Jayden I had heard about playing music and reading books to your baby in the womb.  I had even heard that your baby's brain builds more with the use of music, books, and talking while in the womb.  I of course like most all moms wanted my baby to be smart.  At the time I didn't know about sound beginnings.  So I would put music on my MP3 player and then place it in my waist band while I sat at my desk at work or while I would drive.  The only problem with this is I don't work at a desk all day and I am not always driving.  I have a job where I am walking and moving constantly.  And with moving my phone would fall out of my waistband.  I do think that the little that I was able to provide for Jayden made a difference.  Jayden LOVES music and from just about birth he will move and dance.  I would read books to him also and he loves to read now.  But all of this took some extra effort to accomplish.  I was happy to do it for my baby, but when I have our next baby I don't think I will have the ability to do as much.   
     With sound beginnings I am excited that I will be able to expose my new little one to music, books, and more while in the womb anytime.  The Sound Beginnings is so soft and comfortable.  And I love that I can wear it under my clothing while I go about my day.  I am able to bond with my unborn baby and still give Jayden the attention he needs.  The Sound Beginnings fits nicely and comfortably under clothing and can even be used for a shirt extender.
     When I was pregnant with Jayden my husband was not able to bond with Jayden prior to birth.  With the Sound Beginnings we can use the Sound Delivery option and family members can bond with baby in the womb.  This revolutionary service allows parents and loved ones to record messages using a telephone. These audio love letters to baby are then instantly converted to MP3 files and uploaded to the mother’s account on their website. Files can then be downloaded to any MP3 device and played using the Sound Beginnings device. Each person has a unique account with a specific code and password so to keep privacy.  I absolutely love this option!!  I can have John record special messages to the baby.  Jayden can even leave the baby messages.  I will be recording some stories that I read for the baby and I will be having both my mom and my mother in law leaving messages too.  I think this is such a great way for family members can bond even at a distance.  My mom lives many miles away and she often travels for work.  She can leave the baby messages and it will be like she is around all the time.  Then when the baby is born s/he will be able to recognize grandma's voice.
     I can not wait until I am pregnant and can use the Sound Beginnings.  I have tried it on and love how it feels.  It is so soft and comfortable to wear.  I love Sound Beginnings and I am sure you will too.  Sound beginnings comes in 3 colors, white, nude, and black.  You can also get it in 2 sizes.  Although by sizing I should get the smaller size I went with the larger size because I was HUGE when I was pregnant with Jayden.  I know that all pregnancy's are different, but I am always of the idea that bigger is better than too small. 

Buy it: Sound Beginnings  Amazon $49.95 also available at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, Bed Bath and Beyond, and more retailers.
