Important Notice!
Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for healthy growth and development of babies. Good maternal nutrition helps sustain an adequate supply and quality of breast milk. Unnecessary introduction of bottle-feeding, partially or fully, or of other complementary foods and drinks may have a negative impact on breastfeeding, which may be irreversible. Consult your doctor and consider the social and financial implications before deciding to use breast milk substitutes or if you have difficulty breastfeeding. Follow usage, preparation and storage instructions of breast milk substitutes or of other complementary foods and drinks carefully as improper or unnecessary use may pose a health hazard.

Enjoy sounds with your unborn baby

The world of a child in utero is far from silent. Between the 13th and 16th weeks of pregnancy, your baby’s ears will begin to develop – and this is when your womb transforms into a state-of-the-art sound system where he can enjoy the comforting sounds of your heartbeat and voice. But your child does not just hear what is on the inside. He can also tune into the music you are listening to or the movie you are watching through the vibrations of your amniotic fluid. Simply put, you have an eavesdropper inside.

Here is a chart on how loud sounds are to your baby in the womb.
