A while ago, I shared my review of the Baby Plus Prenatal Education System, but one of my readers recently reminded me that I never posted a follow up on it. If you recall, I tried this system out while I was pregnant with baby #2 and more than anything, I was really curious about the differences I would find between her and my oldest. What it is basically is a little audio device you place on your belly which features a “curriculum” or a series of 16 naturally derived sounds that resemble a mother’s heartbeat. It’s supposed to provide your child with several developmental advantages as a result.
Samara is now almost 9 months old and since birth, I will say that I truly noticed some significant developmental differences between both of my girls and I truly can’t help but wonder if those are, in fact, attributed to the Baby Plus Prenatal Education System. Let me be sure to say this: I do not work for this company, nor am I being asked to write this review! In fact, it has been one of those things where while part of me would just conclude that “well, every child is different,” but then I remember that it may very well have been because of the Baby Plus System.
While Samara is not reading and writing in Mandarin quite yet, these were 2 of the major developmental differences I’ve noticed:
1. Ease of Breastfeeding. If you recall, this was one of the major reasons I chose to stick with system – the promise that she would more readily and easily nurse. In all honesty, Breastfeeding was a piece of cake this time around and I was beyond thrilled! I had tons of lactation consultations and a very uncooperative baby the first time around, but Samara was pretty much a natural from the beginning.
2.Her ability to Self Sooth. When I tell people that Samara started falling asleep alone and sleeping through the night in her own room by 8 weeks, they never believe me. Meanwhile, Leila, at 3 and a half, still hasn’t mastered that ability! In fact, we were required to rock Leila to sleep until almost 2 years old (or maybe longer). Samara can be placed right in her bed and can sooth herself to sleep in a matter of minutes!
Increased interactivity and responsiveness is also a claim this product makes. While I definitely do witness these qualities with Samara, I can’t say that has differed much from the levels I witnessed with Leila. Both of my babies came out just as ready for the world as they could be!
So overall, I’ve been pretty happy with the results I’ve found and can honestly say that the claims that were made were accurate in my case. I would definitely use it again if I chose to have another baby (emphasis on the IF). Now, I’m just super curious if anyone else has used it and what their results were with it.
