White Noise...

I would love to know the number of Mamas who used any sort of white noise while your baby slept... ? A machine, music, fan, anything!

I have been thinking how I want to.. but would love input!​

    I try to avoid toys with batteries to aid in sleep. I cannot say that I never used a mobile, but I limit it. I did not want my kids reliant on them. The same with a quiet house. I never shushed people around my kids. That is probably why I can run a vacuum under my sons crib while he slumbers.

      I love pink noise! I find it more soothing and easier to concentrate with than white noise. Brown noise is one you could look into as well. I know there are some free kindle apps that generate such noise and youtube vids that go for 8+ hours. Lots of options. I also found a Kindle app where you can adjust the sounds, layer them, do all sorts of craziness and it includes sounds such as white noise, fan, rain, music, and even strange ones like vacuum. I'd have to go check for the name, if you're interested.

      Also, here's a link to some pink noise. It sounds more like a heavy rain to me, which I find helpful.

          For some of ours the washer and dryer lulled them during fussy times. So did the vacuum, but we tried to run it while they were sleeping too so we could still vacuum during nap time. We always had our ceiling fans running. Those would mesmerize our babies. They would stare at them.

          Haha, Theresa is a mommy goddess, I swear. I think this site needs an "Ask Theresa" panel that comes out weekly. :D
