However, I HIGHLY recommend a different CD - For Crying Out Loud! is simply tracks of different types of 'household' white-noise. The washing machine, rain and windshield wipers, maternal heartbeat, and our fave: the vacuum cleaner!
I discovered it after a desperate search for fear of burning out the motor on our vacuum cleaner (which worked like an off-switch for my baby!). We simply played it on repeat in the nursery whenever she slept.
Worked much better for us. The different tracks allow for different preferences in pitch and speed of the white-noise.
We found that most white noise machines didn't really do their job when baby was screaming. At those times, as Dr. Karp teaches in his life-saving book "The Happiest Baby on the Block", you need a loud sound, so the baby can hear it over his own screams. With this CD you can adjust the volume accordingly.
The CD has 6 tracks for different situations (extreme fussiness/crying, calming to sleep, staying asleep, etc)
We found track 2 especially helpful for stopping extreme inconsolable crying/screaming. It worked when nothing else (not even the vacuum cleaner) did. The problem with track 2, however, is that it can give you a headache. But I preferred a headache over baby screaming. When I couldn't stand track 2, we used track 6 (rain), which worked great to keep him asleep during naps.
Also, the tracks fade in and out, so they don't startle you or the baby that much.
We purchased a second CD for the car.
If you are reading reviews for this product, you must be a suffering parent of a colicky baby. I hate unsolicited advice myself, but I will still share the following bit of parenting experience:
Once your extremely fussy baby outgrows the first terrible 6 weeks, I recommend working on getting him to sleep during the day more. It did wonders for us, turning the ultimate fussy baby into a sweet angel. When I first heard that advice, I said "yeah, right! I know how to wake a baby, but there's no way I can put him to sleep when he doesn't want to". But we tried. And it changed our lives like we never expected.

Thank you for this CD! We didn't think our baby needed additional white noise besides our very noisy window air conditioning unit. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Katie
The sounds are good, but they are only 17 minutes long, and since he says to play it as loud as a shower, it's obvious when it stops and goes back to the beginning- the CD player... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Seattle Nurse
