‘Pregnancy Band’ Allows Dad to Feel Baby’s Kicks

5 more ways to encourage daddy bonding.


Odds are, you’ll have your baby before this band or something like it finds it way to the mass market. Want to give your partner a similar bonding experience? Here are 5 ideas that will make him swoon:

1. Put Dad’s hand on your belly

If you time it right, he’ll feel movement. Try spooning at night, too: the baby might kick him right in the back!

2. Have Dad talk, read and sing to baby

They say it helps baby learn dad’s voice … and it’s never too early to start prepping your kid for the SAT!

3. Make him shop with you

Even if shopping isn’t his thing, you might catch him tearing up over a tiny onesie (size newborn) or a super-soft stuffed animal. They even make non-girlie daddy diaper bags now!

4. Sign him up for classes

It’s not too early to get a head start on breastfeeding -- and research shows that women who have their partner’s support are able to breastfeed longer. Infant CPR is a good one, too: Dad (and Mom) will feel less jittery if they know what to do in a life-threatening emergency.

5. Invite him to your OB-GYN appointments

Not only will he most likely get to see the baby in ultrasounds and listen to the heartbeat, it will reinforce the fact that he’s on this journey with you. Because, as the Huggies commercial puts it, “they are pregnant too.”
