First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage … er, Bugaboo Donkey Duo. And don’t forget the Diaper Genie, wipe warmers and BabyBjörn. Little ones come with a lot of gear these days — some make life easier and others are a bit crazy. But one mama’s crazy is another’s necessity. We gathered unique baby products that have hit the market, and while we’re happy to offer our opinion, we really want to know what you think — love it or leave it? Flip through our album and let us know.

Belly Buds

What it does: The Bellybuds baby-bump sound system is made of speakers that gently adhere to the belly and play memory-shaping sound directly to the womb.

Red Tricycle says: Love it! You can play music, your voice or even recordings from family that lives far away. Since a baby’s hearing begins to develop at 20 weeks, and memories form at 30 weeks, they can start to recognize your voice (and even the voice of Grandpa who lives half a world away) before they’re born. And you don’t have to hold the iPod on your belly anymore.
