New belt allows dads to feel baby kicking

A NEW belt can be worn by fathers-to-be allowing them to feel their baby kick as it happens.

The US invention spent four months in the pipeline.

The expectant mother wraps a belt around her belly while her partner wears a similar device around his waist.

A video demonstrating the technology shows a man's tearful reaction as he feels the baby move as if it is inside him.

"I feel her moves. I feel her kicks," one father says.

"He's moving a lot," says another.

However, it's not clear if the belts, developed by the nappy manufacturer Huggies, in conjunction with the creative agency Ogilvy & Mather Argentina, will ever come in to production.
