Put your lips on your wife's naval and hum. A few swirleys help too.

Considering the size of Mr. Johnson's head, how can you possibly adjust the headband to be that small?

Edit: Not that I've ever seen Mr. Johnson's head...



You'll note that in my post I referred to IEM's, and yes I wrap the cords around several times to provide further stimulation.

We are doing this for kicks and it should prove to be entertaining until we have to wash the goop off. We will measure the decibel levels accurately and then anecdotally between a group of 5 guys. If the decibel levels are less than a certain threshold the likelihood this could have any adverse affect is practically zero. Kinda like blaming that quasi-deaf aunt who has a nasally high pitched voice who yells at family gatherings while sitting next to the pregnant wife, that she caused your kid to have 13 toes and a tail. Sorry folks, it wasn't Auntie Gertrude who caused that mutation, you may want to look in the mirror, or have a sweet karyotype done. Someone somewhere may have been playing too close to the florescent green slime at the local lab.


An all Canadian quintet of mad scientists, no doubt! You guys seem to do a lot of strange things as winter sets in. Can't imagine what you'll come up with in February.

I didn't suggest asking your doctor because it's impossible for me to know whether your doctor is up to date on the research on this topic. I've had a lot of experience of doctors propagating out-dated information.

You blow my mind. So, random guy on line, It's a shame you are wasting your gift of perfection on Internet message boards. If there is all these studying showing that playing music to a fetus is harmful maybe you could share links and enlighten those of us that aren't familiar with the most recent data.

And while I am finding you annoying let me mention that your correlation between this topic and physically abusing children was out of line. Both my wife and self have devoted our professional lives to protecting children from being abused and maltreated. From experience you can go about helping people by insulting them.

If reading books, using common sense, and consulting with your doctor is not the best way to obtain information regarding the safety of your unborn child what should I do?

Fact: Some doctors are behind in their readings.

Fact: Many specialists never fall into this category, many family docs in major cities fall behind even less because of the local public health unit throwing info down their throats.

Fact: Most doctors, before giving an answer where there is little to no conclusive data, will tell the patient so and or consult experts before providing an answer.

Fact: In the very very very VERY litigious US of A, doctors are typically FAR MORE abreast of current research so their medical license and livelihood isn't dowsed in a fire made from the many bills the lawyers will take from the medical insurance company. I can cite studies on this if need be, but pubmed is just a click away.

Fact: Most doctors are good people, with big hearts who won't screw their patients, out of ignorance, negligence or outright active deception.

Fact: Many a grad student feels they know more in their given field than some poor sap with an MD which is nothing but a professional bachelor's degree

Fact: Your doctor is likely your best source of information (which I realize you already know) unless they are half-way dumb and received their medical degree online from a third world country.

i'unno.. I've had a lot of doctors screw up on me.
When I was little, I had a half-inch thorn jammed into my leg. The doctor said there was "nothing in there".. thorn popped out 2 days later leaving big gaping hole.
I had fillings on a chipped-tooth re-done about 7 times. 5 times from the same doctor.
Had a doctor who's led me to believe(and treated me for) cold sores, until I found out only a year ago from a friend that they were actually canker sores. (big difference btw)
Doctor insisted I had shin splints due to repetitive impact (back when I played tennis), and had another doctor tell me it had something to do with my knee.
Dentist took x-rays, and didn't notice the cyst that's been growing in my jaw bones for over a year.
Surgeon left me waiting for 2-3 hours before a surgery with 2 shots, and a needle in my arm. Comes back to tell me he doesn't have one of the antibiotics.

In my case, I could have gotten better results from Yahoo Answers, than from a doctor visit.

Note that these were all from different doctors, from different hospitals, from a very well-off area.
(some of the doctors, especially the surgeon was a very well-respected doctor in the field)
