I am looking to purchase one of those little machines that make nature sounds - like waves lapping on the beach, or a babbling brook, etc. I know massage therapists and similar practitioners sometimes use them to block out other noise that may be present in a building. I want it to help my daughter naop because I think my son and I are accidently waking her up (our house is very small). I am hoping that a little nature noise might muffle our sounds a bit. I used the fan all summer, but it is getting cold for that now here in the NorthEast!<br><br>
Anyway, does anyone know where to buy one?

I don't know where you live, but we found ours at a store called "as seen on TV' which is in our local mall. They sell all the products that are normally only sold through TV commercials etc. Someone told me that they found their's at Target, but I never saw one there. Good luck.<br><br>
P.S. ours has battery back up, which came in handy when we had the blackout here.

This doesn't exactly address you question, but just wanted to mention that we use a large air filter/purifier in our bedroom - it provides a very good "white noise" effect. It has three settings and on the highest is able to drown out a lot of other noise. I think it doesn't help our dd sleep. It's nice that it is also providing the benefit of cleaning the air. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Maybe something like this would suit your situation?<br><br>

I second the air filter. We got ours from Wal-Mart they are just room size and cost about $30-40. Side note: its amazing the goock they get out of the air.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br><br>
They make enough noise to cover most of our household noise.

We've been using a little boombox set to static on FM since DS was a month old.<br><br>
I wonder when we can stop using it though?

My Mom gave us a CD called "For Crying Out Loud" that played sounds like ocean waves, vacuum cleaner (his favorite), hairdryer, and windshield wipers. I just put it on the CD player in our room and hit "repeat track".<br><br>
This was after I blew out the belt on my vacuum cleaner running it during all his naps!<br><br>

Hi there<br>
We use a marsona white noise machine that we purchased from <a href="http://www.earplugstore.com" target="_blank">www.earplugstore.com</a> - we purchased two machines - they are great and the company gives fabulous service. We have 2 children, ds who is 23 months and dd who is 6 days old and we love the machines. Before we purchased the machines we used a fan or a humidifier - both of which ended up being a problem. The fan blew up (!) and we were buying humidifier filters weekly and we still ended up with a mold problem. The machines are also good because they are so portable - we can easily take them whenever we are away from home.<br><br><br>
