Life-saver! Something we didn't even know we'd need
on May 18, 2014
We didn't know that white noise would be such a life-saver in getting our newborn/infant son to sleep, but once we did, we used iPhone/iPad apps and the vacuum/washer/dryer for white noise. Then we got this as a gift and we LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Didn't know about these before and wish we had!! The white noise apps just drain the battery on your devices really quickly, and of course you don't want to spend your life sitting next to the dryer or vacuum. We actually got a second one so we'd have one for trips in the car (attached to the car seat) and one for the crib/nursery. That is how much we like this and how much it helps our son. A friend of mine said the same thing, and that her 3 year old still uses his and her almost 1 year old also really benefits from this. The noise options are nice too (our personal favorite is the ocean, but the rain and the stream options are nice too - the whale one is our least favorite) and we really like the choice between 25 and 45 minutes for the timer. We use this a lot and the battery seems to last a long time too.
We thought that this would be the exact same product as our sleep sheep, but the machine part actually has different noise options than the one that came with the sheep - there are two noises that are the same (rain and ocean, I believe) and there are two that are different. One is (in our opinion) a really creepy imitation of a kid giggling, and one is a lullaby type song. I personally wish the noise choices were like our other one, and was very surprised that it was different, but as we used the rain and ocean options the most anyway, it's not too much of an inconvenience.
