This gorgeously presented keepsake is the perfect gift for expectant parents, enabling mums- and dads-to-be to bond with their unborn baby.
By the third trimester your baby’s ears are ready to hear! Featuring expert insights, a gentle rhyme to read to bump, beautiful illustrations and pages to personalise.
With an introduction by Dr Kimberley Bennett (@thepsychologistschild) about reading to children, even before they are born, expectant parents will learn the importance of sound and rhythm for their child’s development in utero. There are pages to personalise, with a letter to be written to baby ahead of their birth and a page to record their name, weight and date of birth, making this book a treasured heirloom to pass on to the child. To the back of the book is a secure envelope where parents can keep scan photos and other treasured items.
The rhyming text which follows is a beautiful, lyrical poem which touches on the emotions of pregnancy and the hopes and dreams of life with a new child. Parents are encouraged to read the poem aloud to bump, creating a loving, bonding routine which enables the unborn baby to become familiar with their parents’ voice – whether they are the birthing parent, or not. The poem is accompanied by the stunning illustrations of Anneli Bray, featuring parent and baby animals, curled up together.
Bedtime Book for Bump is the perfect pregnancy gift for baby showers, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day… or just because!
