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.

For those that use a white noise machine..do you have to switch it up at all? or does your LO get used to being "tricked" to sleep (so to speak :) ) We got this http://www.hammacher.com/Product/75864 as a gift and last night DD went down from 9:30p-1:30a with it! Usually we are trying to get her down from 9p til midnight :shock: Anyway, I put her down drowsy but awake this am and she DID fall asleep, but only stayed for 1/2 hour. I changed her and nursed her again to sleeping, set her in her bassinet and she only lasted minutes (which is what we have been dealing with for weeks now). So, I gave up and put her in her swing with the same white noise and she is OUT.

Would like to hear other experiences with white noise working non-consistently and any tips :)

moto - how loud does the bear play the white noise? I find that the louder the better. It also has to be "nap" time or "bed" time for it to work. If I try to put him down with the white noise when it's not the "right" time it won't work.

Did you try the white noise option? The only other thing I think of is that it isn't loud enough. I'm sorry I couldn't help you more.

Hey Girls, i'm a little late on this topic, but we have been and are a huge believer in the white noise machines. We use the Obusforme (you can now get them at walmart) and we keep it at the white noise for the first 3 months and we blare it, coupled with swaddling. When baby sleeps we make sure the machine is one (regardless of nap time or bedtime). Then after 3 months you can switch it up to all the other sounds that they have one the machine.

Hi ladies... just thought I would mention a radio..... that is what we are using at the moment. A small portable radio that is set on static and no channel. You can alter the volume and pop it right behind them in the cot etc... but what I was wondering as I have never needed white noise before is.... does your little one become depentant on the noise?? Do we have to wean them off the noise as they get older?? TIA xx

according to the "Happiest Baby on the Block" book...dr karp recommends slowly lowering the volume each week until they dont need it anymore. Right now DD loves the Brookstone machine I bought. I think the weaning was around 4m or so. Its really nice to have it since it drowns out all the little noises that would wake her!

She is a light sleeper, but if the dogs bark, it does not even phase her...weird!
