    I was given one of these as a baby present. .. see pics. It's a giraffe with in built sounds on a timer. 45 minutes. My daughter had right from birth. ..to hospital stays/surgery...everything. even the sleep specialist we see at the children's hospital suggested one for her..but she did say use it on all night.
    We had az second sleep sheep on pram/in car.
    Even recovering in PICU from surgery the white noise sound helped to calm her.
    She doesn't use it anymore. ...but she does have a light up teddy bear that plays music. We taught her to turn it on and off herself so if she Wakes in the night she can turn it on to go back to sleep.

    DD has a fan running in her room. DS did have a fan too until it broke so I went to buy a new one and according to most stores people in VIC don't want fans in winter! So I bought a Homedics white noise thingy. So far it's been good. We use white noise because we have a very small house with no insulation so it's very noisy especially during the day. When the kids sleep somewhere else I take my iPad with the white noise app on it. I don't think it's a problematic sleep association as its portable and continuous.

    Our baby monitor (only a pretty cheap one) had wave sounds or songs that would play. We used the wave sounds as it helped block out renovation noises when our twins were babies and trying to nap. It worked really well. When i wanted to stop using it we just slowly lowered the volume day by day until it was gone.

    I gave up my iPod to 'running water' for both. Ds is 18mths and it still goes on all night & for his nap.

    As for sleep association, well I have done everything the books say not to do with both dd and ds and they have always been perfect sleepers so for us, it was not a sleep association that caused issues or proved difficult to break.

    Also as a side note, both our kiddos were in their own rooms from day 1 so the noise bothering us wasn't a factor

    We have a white noise app on an old smart phone (and both of our current phones and my tablet). We leave the phone in his room. It goes on when we start settling, and it's turned off when he wakes. Or I turn it off and he wakes immediately.

    We'll start gradually turning the noise down once he starts sleeping better (he will start sleeping better eventually, right?).
