BABY PLUS prenatal education system BabyCenter babyplus prenatal education system review
​ / 6 cappybaby1 Posted 7/6/09 I got on here tonight to see if anyone else had thoughts on this.  My hubby keeps saying he wants to get it, but I want to know...let's hope we get some answers.. Newborn humans are among the least capable animals born: they can't hold themselves up, intentionally control their movements, can see only mere inches in front of their faces, and can't even regulate their own body temperature yet.  Perhaps expecting extraordinary cognitive and intellectual development from exposure to artificial external stimuli while in utero is a bit much? I'm with everybody else....plus, I think parents just over-do it these days with everything and the level of pressure and expectation they put on their kids. If you do choose to use this product, I hope you and your baby have a positive experience with it!!  GOOD LUCK!! I am now pregnant with my second child and started using the BabyPlus system again this past weekend. I am convinced that this product helps your child in many ways. From helping them be more adaptive to their own physical and natural changes, to those changes we bring onto them. It makes it so that they learn things easier and in a happier smoother way. Obviously, there could be a different explanation for this, as every child is different and so is their environment.  At the same time, you could use the same argument to describe their "exceptional" learning skills and intelligence.  Nature vs nurture.  Like I said, children are a product of their environments and so if we take the time to interact with and stimulate the minds and bodies of our babies in a fun, happy and positive environment, their natural abilities will shine through and will be enhanced by the constant nurturing you are providing them.  We don't need the help of an overpriced gimmick!! Well, there are a lot of excellent reviews for this product; however, the negative concerns are a plenty and serious enough to concern me a lot.  A few reviews mentioned permanent hear loss in their child.  I read countless reviews of while perhaps their child would be deemed bright, they had some serious behavioral issues:  sleep deprivation, needing to be stimulated constantly, ADHD, colic, temper issues and fits.... But some of the negative reviews said their kids were overstimulated and needed constant stimulation and attention or they grew bored. One said her baby would freak out in the womb when she used it and after he was born she put the sound on again and the baby immediately started crying and freaking out.  Others reported the baby kicking in the womb and trying to move away from the device.  One reported hearing loss .  One was very honest and said that although her child was smart the kid was just normal smart, not super exceptional.  Others just said it didn't work...baby stayed up through the night, wasn't relaxed and calm or more alert etc.  The negatives were a handful compared to the positive but still concerning. I'm a pretty smart chicky......I think part of it is just luck of the draw genetically, and the rest is what I was exposed to as a child.  We didn't spend hours in front of the TV ; instead I read EVERYTHING I could get my hands on - and still do.  We played outside with our friends, played indoors with toys and games......things that we were naturally interested in and that were appropriate to our level.  We grew up around music....although not the classics, per se: records and radio were almost constantly on and included everything from Elvis, Johnny Cash, The Beatles to Abba and late 70's-early 80's country.  Dad played guitar and mom played piano, too. She is a very happy content healthy child and I would never put my children in any harms way. If for one second I thought it was going to do harm, or that it did harm to my daughter I can assure you I wouldn't be using it again.
And I agree with the poster who said that parents who buy and use the BabyPlus system are generally more involved in their child's development anyway, but who wouldn't want to be one of those parents? As parents, isn't it our job to provide our kids with every advantage and opportunity that we can? I'm telling you, if you aren't using BabyPlus your child is missing out! Go check out www.babyplus.com and see the testimonies for yourself! I saw this device that supposedly a lot of celebrities use and looked it up on Amazon and most of the reviews were good with a lot of parents raving about what geniuses  their babies were but the handful of negatives were SCARY.  I think parents see what they want to see for the most part and who doesn't think their kid is the smartest and reaches all the milestones first? I'm a BabyPlus user as well! 🙂 And a very happy one at that. I have a 14 month who has reached all of her milestones on an average of 3 months before the other children I know her age. At 7 1/2 months she began taking steps, by 8 1/2 months she was completely walking independently. At about 8--9 months she learned to open the gate into our dog's room and go in it and close the gate behind her. Something our toddler niece and nephew still can't figure out how to open. babyplus prenatal education system review At 9-10 months she started saying words, such as "up" if she wanted to get up somewhere or wanted something up high. She knew how to say and use the words, Hi, Bye, Mama, Dada, Lola , Brush, shoes, yummy and a few others. At 11 months she heard someone say "opposite" and repeated it back clearly and still knows the word. This morning we were looking at a picture book that shoes a word on one page and on the next page a picture of the word. I opened up to a random page and the word "eyes"  was on the page. Without me saying a word or her seeing the picture she pointed at the word and said "Eyes" and then pointed at her own eyes. I was amazed. We went through the rest of the book at she knew "wave" "nose" "hi" and "bye". She can tell you and show you your facial parts for the past few months. But yeah I agree...just relax and let your child grow.  Yes you may do good but you could be doing HARM.  Nobody really knows, so why risk it? My DD is now 19 months old. From the second she was born she was tracking voices AND TURNING HER HEAD to follow them! She was NEVER fussy or colic-y. She slept through the night almost immediately , and she was alert and happy all day long. She has met every milestone early; she said "hi' and "bye  bye" along with a wave by FOUR MONTHS! She was speaking in sentences by a year. Right now at 19 months, she is sitting at my feet naming all the letters in her Dr. Suess's ABC book. She can identify all of them, along with her colors and shapes. And I don't sit in front of her with flash cards, she just picks them up by reading, playing with puzzles, etc. She sings full songs. She knows the names of all 80 of the students at our school. She is truly exceptional. A friend of mine used it for both of her daughters and said she can totally see a difference from the 2 little ones to the 2 older ones. She said they both slept through the night completely  and that her 5 year old is excelling in school. with out putting any pressure on them to do so they  walked and talked very early on. You should check with you DR. before you use the product. I have an appt with my Dr. on wed so hopefully I can start using it then, I'll be 18 wks wed. wish me luck  🙂 1)Parents who buy this are already deeply engaged in their child's development which, by nature, enhances the child's development. 2)Parents who buy this aren't doing anything else, but have a placebo effect from the device and therefore have expectations. When the child is born they stimulate their child more while checking for effects. The extra post-birth stimulation is probably the more likely enhancer. I used this when I was pregnant and can honestly say that in my opinion it was fantastic from moment one. I thought "well it can't hurt" and it didn't it really was an asset and I would suggest to anyone thinking about it...try it you'll see why it's so wonderful! Now I have to run because my genius child is requesting "please mama, sing wheels on the bus with me". 19 months! One of the reviews I read put it perfectly for me: BabyPlus is amazing in every way and I recommend it to anyone without any hesitation. I AM A BABY PLUS USER! Sorry for the shouting, but I think I'm the only one on here!  I understand when it comes to your baby, you want to take every precaution, but all of the negative affects that have been mentioned such as colic, sleep trouble, and ADD are things that the BabyPlus system PREVENTS! BabyPlus does not OVER stimulate, it just makes sense to exercise the brain while it is developing. I have a degree in child development and I own a private school educating kids from birth thru 1st grade so when I was pregnant and heard about BabyPlus, I really did my research on it. Let me tell you I am SO GLAD I USED IT!. I'm also as skeptical of the negative effects some claim as the positive ones - I personally doubt it has much impact at all.  I wouldn't criticize anyone for doing it as long as they aren't expecting the kid to be potty trained at 6 months and testing out of kindergarten at age 3 because of it!!!  Good luck whatever you decide! As for those concerned about the negative things they've heard, as MaraBelle put it "but all of the negative affects that have been mentioned such as colic, sleep trouble, and ADD are things that the BabyPlus system PREVENTS! BabyPlus does not OVER stimulate, it just makes sense to exercise the brain while it is developing." when should you have antenatal classes
