I was attracted to these because they're so darned pretty. It was only when I read the copy that I realized that they have a purpose. Inside each bola is a sort of tiny xylophone, and they're meant to be worn by expectant Mums.
As we all know, (just nod) from approximately twenty weeks into pregnancy, a baby can hear and recognize sounds in the womb. If you wear the ball regularly, low on your belly, your baby will grow familiar with the gentle chiming sound of the bola. It's supposed to be very soothing. Choose from silver inlaid with hearts, moons and stars, or intricate filigree designs.
Maybe this was a better idea than playing Bruce Springsteen to my little one. Come to think of it, I'd recommend doing both.
