My Babys Heartbeat Bear Review { GIVEAWAY } #BabyMustHaves

Being a mom of a preemie and being pretty much robbed of the last trimester I don't have any cool ultrasounds to show. Peyton was born at 27 weeks due to preeclampsia and IUGR. The day I delivered I was hooked up the the monitors and the Dr's were listening to her heartbeat and monitoring me for contractions I recorded her heartbeat on my cell phone and sent it to my hubby. That would be the last thing I had from my pregnancy as I delivered an hour later!

I am so glad that I saved that audio because I can now transfer it over to My Baby's Heartbeat Bear!

Party of 5 was sent a My Baby's Heartbeat Bear  in the Heartbeat Elephant to review!

The Elephant Kit includes an adorable stuffed elephant, and a special heart shaped recorder. The elephant is a very soft fleece like material with poly fiber stuffing, and a velcro closure opening in the back where you can place the recorded heartbeat. "Peanut" is approximately 16 inches tall.

I didn't realize the Heartbeat Elephant's name was Peanut until I started writing my review. I was kind of blown away since that is what I called Peyton when she was in the NICU! 

How do I record my baby's heartbeat?

It's very simple! At every check-up, your doctor will monitor the heart rate of your baby using either a Doppler or Ultrasound unit. At this time you will simply switch the button on your red heart to record. Squeeze the heart to record your baby's heartbeat. When you have completed the recording, turn the switch to play back and you will have your baby's heartbeat to enjoy for years to come.

While this is the more fun way of recording your baby's heartbeat I didn't get to experience that so I settled for my way!
I simply played the audio on my computer and recorded Peyton's heartbeat onto the red heart!

Now I have a cute keepsake to remind me of the crazy whirlwind that was her birth!

Here is a neat video that shows how to record at the OBGYN!
