My dd has a humidifier that is awesome for white noise.... but for many reasons that's not an option for me. What products do you all have/use?
ps: A fan is no where near loud enough for this.

We've also used our baby monitor to create a static noise which works well.
We've tried other fans, but they Honeywell large floor fan is unbeatable!

just chiming in that earplugs might help too! You might need both though..
Anyway, it worked sort of like ear plugs AND white noise all in one! It was a gift, but I think it may have come from either Brookstone or Radio Shack.
Also, I've used an iPod to drown out sounds when trying to sleep. That may work, if you can fall asleep to music. I suppose you could find a white noise track to put into an iPod or mp3 player, too.
My DH was a terrible snorer. White noise didn't do enough. So finally we got him into a sleep center for an overnight study, and they found (as I had suspected) that he had moderate sleep apnea. They got him a CPAP (thank you insurance company!) and voila! We both sleep much better. He makes nary a peep at night now. If you think he might have apnea, I highly recommend having a sleep study done.
I can't imagine how baby in utero and I would be able to sleep without DH's CPAP.

I second the Breathright strips! Significant difference.
DH snores. We have 3 neighbors with 4 Harley Davidson motorcycles between them. I HAVE to have sound muffling in order to sleep at all. Hence the two sound machines.
Ann-Marita. I deleted my usual signature due to, oh, wait, if I say why, that might give too much away.
I need to check a few out. I guess I'm really quirky. My dh's snoring isn't loud really at all. BUT I cannot fall asleep if he's snoring.... and I wake about 3x/night minimum and he's usually snoring at these times....makes me CRAZY. I went to Target yesterday and looked at air purifiers...wish I could shell out the $$ right now. Our room is huge so i would need a $130 unit. I also would like something portable b/c we travel quite a bit. Anyhow, nature sounds and tv static don't work (something about the pitch of the static). I really want humming like a fan but super loud.... I have a bunch of fans that aren't loud enough but I may need to keep looking for the 'right one'. The homedics sound machine sounds good but not sure if it's loud enough. I need to see if there's somewhere I can buy it to try it (but not online 'cause I don't want to pay shipping if I return it). I think this would travel well too.
Dh will stop snoring if he's on his side but he gets SO irritated at me 'waking him up' to turn that it's a no-win situation. He'd rather sleep on the couch which is what he's been doing! He's actually fine with this (even though we *do* have an empty 'guest room' with a bed) I feel so guilty though. Like a total brat in the king size bed all by myself! Maybe I just am a brat....
Thanks again everyone. Will let you know what I figure out.
