BabyPlus Prenatal Education System

Do you want to give your baby a head start in life? Try out the BabyPlus Prenantal Education System. Despite not having any factual measures of success (how can you really tell if it works versus the natural temperament of your baby?), the Baby Plus system kick starts education for your baby while in the womb. 

Created by Developmental Psychologist, Dr. Brent Logan, the BabyPlus System is a “series of 16 naturally derived sounds that resemble a mother’s heartbeat. The rhythm of the sounds increases incrementally as the pregnancy progresses. The BabyPlus sonic pattern introduces your child to a sequential learning process, built upon the natural rhythms of their own environment. This “auditory exercise” strengthens learning ability during the developmental period when the advantages will be most significant and enduring for a child.”

The system works by emitting thumping sounds that the baby can hear. Your baby will hear the patterns and will learn to discriminate between the sounds and their mother’s heartbeat which means that learning has begun. Simply strap the unit on your belly with the speaker pointing inwards and play it twice a day for an hour at a time. The best time to start using it is between 18-32 weeks gestation (hearing is fully developed by 18 weeks).

The scientific research behind the BabyPlus is that during gestation, “the brain is at its most receptive stage of learning.” Often, babies will “respond with soft, repeated movements accompanying the rhythmic lessons.” The other side of looking at the BabyPlus is the mother-child bonding that occurs during this time. Moms can spend 2 hours a day focusing on their developing baby, thereby bonding before the baby is even here.

The BabyPlus is not cheap, if you are a believer, have $159 and 2 hours a day to spare then buy it. While it has many amazing reviews, it also has a lot of bad reviews. As a parent, you will never be able to prove that the system is actually going to work so buy it if you are a believer…at least you know it cannot hurt!
