Not sure what to think of this one. The RITMO Prenatal Music System is a support belt with a built-in MP3 player that you wear around your belly while pregnant, and treat the little one you’re carrying to whatever music you choose. Designed to grow with you, RITMO says it provides controlled sound for “optimal fetal levels.” While it is recommended to expose baby to music in the womb, I’m just not sure that means wearing it around your belly, pressed right up against the growing fetus. If you’d like to see for yourself, check it out at ThinkGeek.com, where RITMO sells for $99.99.
This product is something I just learned about, and I’m not sure if I would have used it or not when trying to get my pre-pregnancy body back post-pregnancy.

It looks like an interesting concept, but I don’t know anyone who’s actually used it. If you have, let me know — I’d love to hear how well it works. You can purchase your very own Belly Bandit for $55.99 at ToysRUs.com (it comes in a variety of styles and in sizes from small to large). A Limited Edition version designed by Kourtney Kardashian is also available for $69.99.

Everyone swears by Bravado nursing bras. My one experience with their basic model wasn’t stellar, but I recently saw this one online and liked the look of it immediately.

This bra features a soft cup and easy to use clips for easy access when it is time to feed. You can purchase one in a whole range of sizes for $45 at breakoutbras.stores.yahoo.net.
