Why Use White Noise As A Baby Sleep Aid?

Babies seem to like white noise as they are used to it from being in the womb and hearing the constant beat of mums heartbeat and muffled sounds from outside the womb.

White noise machines create a constant sound that can help to soothe and calm anxious babies, encouraging them to stop crying and fall asleep more quickly.

White noise machines can also help babies to stay asleep longer by drowning out other potential noise disturbances such as older siblings or city traffic.

They generally provide a source of comfort and can encourage your sleepy baby to drift off or sink back into a deep sleep.
