Think about it: babies spend nine long months nestled just under their mama's heart, listening to the rhythmic thump-thump, thump-thump of her heartbeat. It's little wonder, then, that My Little Beating Heart ($42) is proven to help relax and calm infants. A nifty microcomputer inside the pillow exudes a calming, pulsating heartbeat based on the rhythm of the heart in a peaceful, meditative state. The soft, plush exterior just invites little hands to grasp it and snuggle up with it--and parents might be tempted to claim it for themselves after a long, sleepless night!
