So we had 'some' success with white noise last night - or more specifically, loud ocean waves on repeat... Could have been a coincidence but I will try again tonight. Got the idea after a walk on the beach had 6 wk old DS2 immediately calm and zonked yesterday afternoon. Previous attempts at white noise hadn't worked but I don't think I was doing it loud enough, and needed the find the right 'noise' he would respond to. Perhaps he is remembering my beach walks and meditation I did whilst pregnant...
So my question for noise users:
Do you use the noise all night or just to get them settled in the evening? And if so when do you turn it off/turn it down?
Do you use the white noise for every sleep or just evening sleep?
Am I setting up a sleep association I am going to have to break later? How can I avoid this?
Right now I am just keen to do what works to get us all a bit of rest. However I am not keen on creating a habit I have to break later, so just not sure on the best way forward. Assuming it works again tonight that is....!!
