White Noise

I have just discovered an absolute game changer!

Oscar has been pretty poorly since he was born, nothing serious but he’s suffered badly with the things he’s had. Which means that for the past 27 days we’ve had to ‘endure’ quite a bit of the new born baby scream, now, I can definitely handle the scream on a noise level but I hate watching him get so worked up that he’s sweating and turning a beautiful shade of purple, imagine, Violet Beauregard from Willy Wonka. Enter ‘Sleepy Sounds’ a free App on iPhones that has options for: Lullabies, White Noise, Nature Sounds or Your own music. You can set a timer on it to play for how ever long you’d like or it can just keep going and going. This app is literally like a switch for Oscar, he LOVES white noise and since I’ve been using this app I’ve done some research and it seems quite a few baba’s do! The tumble dryer or heavy rain are a favourite in this house. The minute I started playing the loud knocking noises of a tumble dryer he was silent, the app even has a nice soft colour changing backlight when playing. I am currently sat writing this blog whilst listening to a tumble dryer coming from my phone and the distant drones of my own tumble dryer fluffing up his baby towels and my baba is staring up at me, very peaceful and very content.

Another great thing about this app is that because it’s on your phone it’s portable so if you’re out in public and baba starts to get worked up you can open up your app, lock your phone and pop it in the car seat or pushchair to (hopefully) calm them down.

Let me know if you try this out and what you and baba think! Have you got any other must have apps I can try out?

  1. A noise machine has been SO helpful in our house too. When my 20 month old was young, it was the only way she would sleep…and now I’m even a little addicted to sleeping with the background noise 😉 I never thought of downloading an app though! Great tip.
