Nuvo Ritmo Pregnancy Advanced Sound System Belt Review

Nuvo Ritmo Pregnancy Advanced Sound System Belt is not only a pregnancy belt, it is also a sound system for your unborn baby. Ritmo is a stretchy, supportive, washable pregnancy belt with a sound system built in. Research has shown that listening to music in the womb can have a stimulating effect on your baby’s brain. I know the songs I listened to when I was pregnant with Bunny were very familiar and soothing to her after she was born. 

Want to learn more about the science behind Ritmo?

Ritmo uses a high quality surround sound system with four mini speakers that are split up in four areas of the belt. This makes sure sound is not focused on one area of your womb and allows the baby to hear the sound no matter what position they are in. Ritmo speakers are specifically engineered for the womb and deliver the highest quality sound at a safe listening level.  Ritmo is not just for music. You can prerecord anything you would like your baby to hear, and play it for them using Ritmo. You can record your voice, or the voice of a loved one singing lullabies, reading a story, or just talking. This helps your baby to recognize and be comforted by these voices, songs, or stories after birth. Ritmo would be especially wonderful for those mothers who’s significant other is gone during the pregnancy for whatever reason, or for surrogates.

Ritmo works with most phones and MP3 players. Ritmo has a belt extender which allows you to use Ritmo during any stage of your pregnancy. I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and do not need the belt extender yet. Ritmo is very comfortable and easy to use. When you first open Ritmo there is a little bit of assembly required. Mine came with the speakers already installed, but there is an instruction booklet telling you how to install the speakers if needed. Ritmo is washable, which is a wonderful feature. You can remove the speakers to wash your Ritmo. There are three wires in Ritmo that you need to find. They are pretty easy to locate. There are two wires in the left pocket and one wire in the right pocket. You need to unzip Ritmo and thread the one wire from the right pocket over to the left pocket. Once you have done that, you can connect the wires to audio controller. After you have done this, you are ready to go!

Ritmo comes with a carrying case, which is great for traveling! You can store your Ritmo inside the mesh storage case in between uses as well.

Ritmo Advanced comes with a an audio controller which allows you to listen to the music with your baby via headphones. You can also have phone calls with those you love and let the baby listen in. 

Ritmo is very comfortable to wear. Ritmo can be worn sitting, standing, laying down or while you are out and about. 

 

Nuvo Ritmo Pregnancy Advanced Sound System Belt can be purchased for $139.95 online. Ritmo makes a great baby shower present! 

12 Week Ultrasound!

We had a 12 week genetic ultrasound today! I must admit I only did the genetic testing because of the ultrasound. In just one week my little bean has grown so much! He is so big and so perfect! Every part of his body is there. Every single part. We saw his arms and hands, his legs and feet. His profile. It was wonderful and amazing. I am so blessed. I have started feeling him move. When I lay on my side to nurse Bunny, I can feel my sweet little baby moving inside of me. It is the best feeling ever. I love being pregnant, despite the nausea. I am still nauseated all day and night. I had hoped it would have faded by now, but the nausea is still there. Maybe next week I will feel better!

Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes Review and Giveaway

Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are wet wipes that release a cornstarch baby power onto the skin. The baby powered goes on wet and dries with little to no scent, but leaves behind a refreshing layer of smooth baby powder. Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are made in the USA. Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes contain no talc, no alcohol, no parabens, no gluten, and no phthalates. There are no airborne particles when using Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes, unlike traditional baby powder. Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are hypoallergenic and has been dermatologist tested. 

Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are great for diaper rashes! Bunny had a diaper rash and I used Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes. Within a day the diaper rash was gone! There are 20 wipes in each package. The packages are nice and small, easy to take with you in the diaper bag. 

Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are not only for babies! Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are great for golfer,s runners, campers, bicyclists, fisherman, horseback riders, hikers, pool players, weightlifters, firefighters, nurses and even as an alternative for deodorant! I have used Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes on myself and I love them! They help with chafing. 

You can see the thin layer of baby powder in the middle of my arm.

Bunny has extremely sensitive skin. Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are one of the few diaper rash products that have helped Bunny’s diaper rash without making it worse. Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are a great preventative measure against diaper rash. 

Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes are thick and soft. You can feel and see the thin layer of baby powder that is left behind. I personally do not like using baby powder because of all the airborne particles. I feel like most of the baby powder ends up in the air and not on my baby’s bum. Plus, it is hard to not make a mess with baby powder. Some of the baby powder makes it onto the baby’s bum, but some of it end up on the changing table and clothing, which leads to more laundry for me. Not what I want! Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes eliminated the need to use baby powder on your little one’s bum and eliminates the mess! 

You can buy Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes online here for $8.99 per pouch. 

Or you can win a 3 pack of Quantuminds Baby Powder Wipes!

11 Week Doctors Appointment

Our 11 week doctors appointment went well! We got to see our little bean again! He (I think he is a boy) is growing so much! My little baby is getting bigger! I am still incredibly nauseated. I am hoping this subsides soon. I haven’t gained any weight yet, but I am not concerned. I didn’t lose all the weight from Bunny, so I have a few pounds to spare. I do hope my appetite returns soon. I want to grow a healthy baby. Right now my cravings are salad. Unfortunately salad doesn’t keep me full for very long. I try to sneak chicken in my salad, but I am not too fond of meat right now. The other food items that sound good are fried cheese sticks and smoothies. Mexican food is also sometimes appetizing. I wish I could afford to eat out at every meal! Preparing food makes me sick. Hopefully in a week or two I will feel much better!

First Doctors Appointment

Our first doctors appointment went well! Based on dates we should be 8 weeks pregnant, but we are really 6 weeks pregnant. I am not surprised the dates are wrong because I am nursing Bunny. We had an ultrasound and saw our tiny little baby! All we could really see was a blob, but it is a beautiful blob! I am feeling very nauseated all day and night. I did not feel nauseated with Bunny until I was 8 weeks along. I can’t wait to tell our family! We will tell the world after our next appointment, around 11 weeks. I am so excited for Bunny to be a big sister!

We are Pregnant!

Yay! I finally got a positive pregnancy test! We have been trying to get pregnant since my cycle came back, 5 months ago. I am still nursing Bunny and knew that would make it more difficult, but I didn’t expect to feel so bummed every time I got my period. I am so excited we are expecting! I took a few Wonfo tests and they were all negative. When I was 6 weeks late I decided to buy a dollar tree test just in case the others were not accurate. I immediately received a positive result! I want to tell everyone but am hesitant because a couple of close friends recently had a miss-carriage. From my estimate, I am 4 weeks pregnant. I have to wait 4 more weeks before I can see a doctor. I am so excited!!!
