The womb is a very noisy place. During your pregnancy🤰🏽, your baby is hearing the ambient sounds of blood running through your blood vessels, and the movement of your stomach and intestines. The female body is capable of so many amazing things. Add walking talking sound machine to your list, ladies. 👯♀️
The noise baby hears👂🏻in the womb is about the same volume of a running shower 🚿. Now, imagine hearing this white noise 24/7 and someone all the sudden shutting it off and expecting you to sleep. That might be tough, right? This is why we love sound machines for babies! 👏🏾
When selecting a sound machine, make sure that it plays a constant low pitch noise, without any ebbs and flows (think pink noise, rain). Avoid music🎵! This can actually stimulate baby. We also want to make sure that this sound machine is going to stay on🔛during the entire sleep (having it shut off mid sleep may wake baby...and we definitely don't want that😱).
At home we love using the @hatchforsleep. For an on the go sound machine we love to use the @yogasleepusa (Rohm portable sound machine). If you don't want to have to purchase 2, the Lectrofan Micro 2 is Chief Sleep Coach Jenica's favorite!
