LOL so last night around 8:30 pm DS was being fussy. I was about to feed him but had to tell DH something first - so I took DS downstairs where DH was running on the treadmill. Immediately DS calmed down and within seconds he was resting on my arm and a funny calm happy look came over his face. About a minute later he started dozing off! I know white noise is good for babies and my mom is bringing over a white noise machine today and I know babies often like the vacuum, hair dryer, etc but I never thought of the treadmill. But it really was the perfect mixture of sound of thumping (like heartbeat) and whooshing like blood volume, etc. We should tape it!

DS isn't colicky (at least not yet, fingers crossed) but I imagine it would really come in handy if he were!

Happy mama to DD (8-11-05) and DS (6-5-09) and married to my best friend and love of my life since 10-13-01.

Yay for finding something that works for you!

Unfortunately, what works today doesn't always work tomorrow. But if it does for you, that's great!

When DS1 was crabby, I used to sling him and very carefully walk on our treadmill. Movement + noise = happy baby!

Lucas sleeps with the radio on.

I asked DH if we should switch it to Classical instead of playing that popular crap but neither of us can stand to listen to the classical over the monitor!! haha

I did that with my son too! Only problem was, he was born June 29 in AZ, so I was always SOOO hot carrying him (even in our a/c house!).

We still put DS to bed with a noisemaker. But we also use one in our room (more my husband's "need"). He needs noise of some kind...fan, etc.
