White noise maker recommendations

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a white noise machine to use in/outside of DD's room. We're using our humidifier right now, and it helps a lot, but soon we won't need to run it when the weather warms up. I was looking at this one: http://www.amazon.com/Marpac-SleepMate-980A-Electro-Mechanical-Conditioner/dp/B000KUHFGM/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1DXCXKHZSQ1DX&colid=3T0YP076BAY1U

Any experience with that product, or other recommendations?

We use the Cloud B Sleep Sheep. It shuts off automatically after 45 minutes. Cecilia seems to sleep best with the "Spring Showers" setting. smile.gif

We use the Baby Sound Spa.  It has several different sounds, can run on a timer or just continuously.  DS likes "rain" :)

We use this too. We also have a Cloud B Giraffe.

Thanks, mamas. We have the Sleep Sheep, but it doesn't really help DD. She needs something louder and more constant. The white noise from the humidifier is perfect, it's just not something we can leave running all year. Does the Homedics machine have a white noise option?

I have something very similar to this Homedics alarm clock.  The waterfall setting is pretty solid white noise and it can be turned up loud, way louder than I would ever need it at night.

Not sure if you have an iPhone, but you can buy a white noise app on that for $2.99 (I think) and then plug your iPhone into speakers.

Guess I am the low-rent representative on this issue...I use a fan I found in a lost and found where I used to work.  It does just fine!

I used Garage Band on my Mac to record a few minutes of my hair dryer.  Then I looped it so it was an hour long, uploaded it to iTunes, then put it on continuous play on my iPod.

 

Sounds complicated, but it's really easy; I had never used Garage Band before and with a little help from my good pal Google, I was able to figure it out.  If you have a computer that will record sound, a way to turn the sound to an mp3, and an mp3 player, you can make your own white noise!

We use the radio tuned between channels to static. Works great, esp since we leave it running all night. Strangely I don't mind the sound. With my first ds we recorded the vacuum running and my dh edited to be a loop for 60 minutes and then we burnt it onto a CD.

Box Fan.

fan was great in the summer but not so much in the winter when the house is 62 degrees at night...if that.

We use a little fan...since it is a cold Northern winter I just point it up towards the ceiling.  Also, not sure how old your baby is but the use of a fan supposedly reduces the SIDS risk somewhat.

I use an air purifyer on high for all of DD's naps. It works great and cleans all the dust and crap out of the air. Double duty.

It's not any expensive one, but it has a HEPA filter which is good.

I use one ocean waves track on a CD on repeat in our alarm clock.  Our alarm clock has a cd player so I just leave it on repeat all night and for naps... Works great!

The Cloud B Sleep sheep. Its nice because its so portable for overnights.

A NO-COST OPTION... turn on the bathroom fan if it's close the child's room.  We used to use our bathroom fan (bathroom fan was next to the baby's and toddler's room) all the time and it worked very well!!!  Hope this helps somebody...
