    Default Is Background Music @ Night when Putting Newborn to Sleep Unwise?

    I swear by the white noise too!

    We have a cd that is specifically for babies.

    The tracks are all like the sounds they hear from inside the womb.

    We still play it for DS who is 15 months.

    He is a spectacular sleeper

    Default Is Background Music @ Night when Putting Newborn to Sleep Unwise?

    I swear by the white noise app Sleep Droid to help my daughter sleep! She was the worst sleeper until I started playing it for her. I put it on as soon as I start to get her swaddled for bed and often she is asleep before I even get her into her bassinet. She's 4 months now and has been sleeping through for at least a month and a half and before that would only wake up once!! I don't play it for her naps during the day and she is still able to happily drift off to sleep on her own without a problem. Even when we travel interstate to visit her grandparents she'll still sleep through with the white noise playing.

    We did try soft classical music but it didn't work for us as the change in tempo/pitch would cause her to stir, so the constant drone of the white noise worked perfectly!

    I agree with the previous poster that said just to turn the volume down each night to wean them. I don't see the need though as I know some adults that use white noise to clear their head for sleep!

    Thanks ladies!

    I have never tried white noise and didnt even know there are CDs or apps for them.

    I used CDs that play children choir or just classical music for DS1. He used to listen to music whole night but we managed to wean him to just playing the CD one round when he goes to bed. Did worry about him becoming dependent on it. He does need it when he goes to bed but was able to sleep pretty well without it for rest of night.

    Will definitely look into white noise in prep for DS2's arrival. I use the Iphone or Ipad not android. Any of you have recommendations for apps using Iphone or Ipad?

    Lumpy Melon, can I know what CD you are using specifically? Sounds superb.

    You can also try the radio between stations. It works wonders with DS!

    Search sleepdroid, in the apps store on your iPhone. It's a purple icon with a little purple alien type thing. It's great because it allows you to customise your own white noise, so when my bub was just born I was able to play her a ticking clock and an air conditioner to mimic womb sounds. Now I just have the air conditioner sounds playing.

    I love it as well because it masks the sound of the garbage truck of a Tuesday morning so I don't get woken up at 5am!

    I just turn the fan on every night, face it away from bub. Our house is small and Ds is a very light sleeper so white noise is a must. When he was little he liked the vacuum cleaner and mower noises so i found some youtube clips of those for him. Music has done nothing for ds earlier, now it just makes him excited.

    If its the same one we had, it's called Sounds of Silence, I think. Otherwise I use the WhiteNoise app.

    I used a harsh white noise from my Relax Sounds app - really helped to drown out the noise of a loud sibling.

    Honestly, dependence on white noise should truly be the least of anyone's sleep concerns.
