white noise machine

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

white noise machine

Postby mom2nicholaspatrick » Wed Dec 23, 2009 8:01 am

Does anyone have any suggestions? I am looking into buying one but I don't know which one is good. My son has trouble sleeping more than a few hours at a time. I am thinking this might help.

Thanks!

We never bought one. We just put a fan in DDs room and turned it on. She sleeps a lot better when her fan is on at night.

we got one from brookstone as a gift, I use it every night and its awesome. It really does help, Dilena has a really sensitive startle and it helps drown out other noise. Happiest baby has a CD of white noise which is great too

Our sound machine has been our saving grace. LO never slept better and is rarely disturbed from outside noise. Also, my husband and I really enjoy hearing the noise through the baby monitor.

We have a Marcpac Sleepmate and it has been worth every penny. It is not a digital recording but a noise produced by the machine. Very smooth and you can adjust the noise.

I once heard someone say they tape recorded the white noise from the vaccume cleaner running and played it back in the baby's room. That way..they didnt have to have the machine running all the time. I was one of those babies who loved falling asleep to the vaccume cleaner. And it's a cheap alternative.

we have used a fan/air purifier/conair clock & sound machine, they all work great but the air purifier is the best.

the only thing is that she's pretty dependent on white noise to sleep. she would never sleep or nap in a quiet room, and she's extremely sensitive to noise and is easily woken up.

I'm the sane way. I have to have my fan on to sleep, just for the noise. If it's off, it's way too quiet and it bothers me.

Gabby has slept with a fan on from day one. DH and I are fan sleepers, and she was in our room for the first 4 months or so, so she got used to it. We tried to put her to sleep with no noise, but she wouldn't have it. Once we put a fan in her room, she slept much better!

Thank you everyone for responding. DH ended up burning a CD of white noise and it seems to have worked last night. Hopefully it will work again tonight. If not, I am looking into one of those 2 machines that were recommended. Happy Holidays!

:hi: mom2! Just wondering how the CD has continued to work? Did you get a machine yet?

The brookstone one looks great...I like how it gradually changes volume so it does not abruptly quit. I think we really need some white noise in our house! DD is slightly colicky and sleeps VERY restless...constantly groaning and grunting and shaking her head, etc...very noisy. We are lucky to get 2 hours at night in her bassinet, other than that she sleeps on ME :)

moto - the CD works great. We put the player on continue and it plays over and over all night. LO was screaming and then we put the CD on full blast and he stopped crying instantly. Try it, saves money on buying the machine.
