Pregnancy Belt for Dads!

For dads who aren't quite brave enough to take on simulated labor, Huggies has another, gentler idea: one that involves tears of joy instead of howls of discomfort.

"Pregnancy was always about her. That's why [at] Huggies, we did something special to compensate fathers," the voiceover in their new commercial says, explaining that the unusual accessory featured in the ad took four months to create. "We developed a belt that replicates in real time the movements and the baby's kicks, from mom's belly to dad's belly."

What an interesting concept!  Do you think your partner would give it a try?

I would have LOVED that! But I would have had my older children try it, too. That way they can see what it's really like to be 9 months pregnant and not be able to touch (or see) your toes. lol As far as the simulated labor goes, I'm not sure guys are strong enough to handle that lol.
