20Reading to the baby bump

Literacy is so important for a little one’s development and success in life, and it is never too early to begin exposing baby to the magic of books.

Mom can choose from classic titles that use simple language, are familiar beloved titles of mom's from her early years, or are just

plain fun to read. It is perfectly okay to read child-friendly material from the newspaper, blogs, magazines, and other material. The most important thing is to read to the bump.

Reading to the baby while in the womb encourages bonding, increases feel-good hormones, and gives the baby plenty of time to fall in love even more with their mother’s voice.
