Bump Booster

Essex parents-to-be can now find rhymes and resources to give babies the best start in life – before they are even born!

Bump Booster is a new online resource which gives parents ideas on how to talk, read and bond with their little person inside. Parents-to-be may not be aware that babies in the womb can hear their parents and others around them. Singing songs and reading rhymes to babies during pregnancy can give them a great start in life.

There are lots of rhymes to try on Bump Booster and parents-to-be can explore Essex Libraries' Baby and Toddler book recommendations to balance that with a great story to share with bumps too.
