  • Yes - they learn very early! With both my 4th and 5th I "patted" my tummy where their butt was inside of me. When they were born, that was the thing that calmed them down best was for me to hold them and pat their little butts - it's what they were used to!

  • When I was preg with my first child my mom would touch my belly and my daughter would stop moving. and when she was born she would cry when she would hold her. I thought it was funny but it broke my moms heart. She got better about her holding her but it was bad the first couple of weeks. With my second my oldest daughter would sit next to me and my baby would kick her and wiggle around now they are the best of friends. I know when I would put my hand on my belly both would kick me. They know from a early age who is mom and who is someone else. They know your voice, smell and feel by the time they are 2 weeks old.

  • It is also fun to play with them!! Take a flashlight and put it on your belly. Move it in different spots and you can feel the moving toward the light. My oldest would actually push on the light!!

  • If I put my hand on my belly she will move to my hand is. If someone, even daddy replaces my hand she will move away. If I put my hand back where it was after she moves away she will move right back to it!
