I feel odd talking to my bump but still want to communicate. How can I do this?

Bonding with one’s baby can begin much before your baby is actually born. Thebonding helps you prepare for life with the little one and gets you feeling more like themom you are going to be.A lot of people choose to talk to their bump but if you are not comfortable doing it, it isokay. There are still other ways to communicate with the baby.● Keep an ultrasound scan photo aroundSeeing the ultrasound now makes the baby a reality even though you do not feelthe kicks and punches yet. Keep the scan around and talk to the scan rather thanyour bump. This may make you feel like you are actually talking to someone andhelp you communicate better.● Touching and massaging your bumpTo communicate one does not always need to use words. Just a touch is enoughto communicate with your baby and vice versa too. Stroke your baby bumpgently maybe or lightly massage the bump with lotion, oil, etc. This will enableyou to feel your baby’s movement more too.● Singing to the baby or listening to musicMusic helps communicate a range of emotions. Finding it tough to string togetherwords use music. Now there really is not much proof that music soothes yourchild’s temperament but it is believed to encourage a positive temperament inyour child. Anyways music can help you relax.It is okay if you find communicating with your unborn child difficult, it is perfectlyalright to bond once the baby is born.
