Doctors and sleep experts recommend a consistent, relaxing sleep routine for newborns and older babies. Freeing baby’s sleep environment of jarring or distracting outside noises is an important step in creating a soothing space for sleep. The Sound Sleeper provides just enough peaceful background noise to block household hubbub. Once baby becomes familiar with the sounds of this machine, she’ll probably start yawning the minute she hears it! The Sounds of (Near) Silence
The sounds of Sound Sleeper don’t have to be boring, just relaxing and repetitive. Experiment with the various sounds to find the perfect soporific.
The buzz of peeper frogs and insects is a happy, sleepy, country sound.
What’s cozier than curling up in bed with a gentle rainstorm pattering outside the window?
Burble, burble, burble—just don’t try this one when your toddler is potty-training!
The deep tranquility of a calm ocean is unmatched for its lulling ability.
The wind blows quietly in the trees, but you and baby are safe and sound at home.
The rhythmic swishing sounds of the womb: it’s a natural for soothing baby!
Just a few lonely seagull cries, widely spaced.
Pretty, delicate bird song.
The distant ringing of a bell buoy. Great in combination with the Ocean sound.
Thunder rumbles, but the storm always stays far off in the distance. Best combined with Rain, of course.
Experiment with the Combine mode to find the perfect sleep-inducing sounds for your baby. We like Brook and Bird, Wind and Thunder, and Ocean and Buoy, but who knows? Maybe the magic combination will be Womb and Seagull!
The power adapter feature of the Sound Sleeper is very handy for everyday use. The ability to leave the sound machine on all night long (or put it on the one-hour timer) is invaluable. Babies are notorious for waking up throughout the night; when they hear the same soothing sounds they fell asleep to, it will be much easier to return to those sweet dreams.--Emilie Coulter
