    Default Tell me about your white noise?

    I've been using my work iPhone with white noise app, pretty much since birth with my DS, who self settles really well with it. But once I head back to work I obviously will need that phone again!

    What are people using, products/ideas? Need something portable for when we go away and when DS is in daycare and at the grandparents.

    I have my old iPhone 4 with the white noise app on it which I keep in ds' room.

    what about an old iPod and docking station?

    But the cheapest radio you can find, tune it (or rather untune it) to a blank radio station. I've used it for DS since birth and it works a treat!

    I just use an old iPhone with an app called sleepy sounds on the rainfall setting. I like this method as it has an indefinite function so doesn't turn off after a set time, doesn't run on batteries, great volume control (louder during the day, quieter at night). As a back up I have the app on a tablet I rarely use too. But an old iPhone/android and use an app?
