  • Easy White Noise

    About a year ago, my dad sent us an air filter that we put in our bedroom, and my husband and I discovered that white noise is a beautiful thing. After it rains, there’s always a drip-drip sound in the rain gutter outside our bedroom, but with the air filter on, we never hear it anymore. We don’t hear a lot of other irritating sounds as well.

    So when Dr. Harvey Karp recommended white noise as one of the 5 soothing S’s in The Happiest Baby On The Block, it made perfect sense to us. Instead of an air filter, though, we got our baby a CD called Soothing Sounds For Sleep. Back when the 5 S’s were the only thing that could calm our son, the CD kept us from shushing ourselves hoarse.

    Even though our son doesn’t need to be swaddled anymore, he sleeps better with a little white noise on in the background. The tracks that we use the most are the rain, the ocean, and the train, although there are others (the ticking clock in the background of the ceiling fan track drives me absolutely nuts). We found that our baby sleeps the best if we select one track and put it on infinite repeat.
