During our last prenatal appointment my doctor recommended buying books so that DH can read to the baby, even though baby is still inside. This is because studies show that while the baby won't recognize dad's heartbeat, when they hear the familiar noises (from the reading) they will be calmed easier by DH.
We went with Goodnight Moon and The Hungry Caterpillar. Both classics which hubby has never read (!). I We were also looking at some Robert Munch such as Mortimer and The Paper Bag Princess.
Has anyone else started reading to baby? What books did you buy?
