Once you’ve gotten your baby love to sleep, making sure she stays that way is a serious mission. It’s no fun tip-toeing around the house from 7-10 just to ensure you don’t wake the baby. Don’t worry – we’ve got just the solution for you. Investing in a noise machine is a total game changer.
Did you know that in utero, babies are used to hearing lots of whooshing and swishing type noises? Once they are born, being in a silent space is actually very unnatural for them. With a little help from a noise machine, you can make your baby feel like they never left their cozy home in utero. Simply turn your noise machine on during your bedtime routine to block out any unwanted noises. Noise machines are also great if you have older siblings in the house, if you are traveling and staying with guests, or are living in a community space. Not to mention, more sleep for baby means more sleep for you!
We like this the Marpac Dohm, as it delivers continuous white noise throughout the night. Some models shut off after a certain amount of time, which can actually wake your baby up in the middle of the night. Mama Bee tip: Make sure you place your noise machine across the room so as not to affect your little one’s tiny and sensitive eardrums. Happy sleeping!
