what parents are saying
I would consider this to be an essential item. Crucial for good nighttime and naptime sleep. The white noise worked better for us than nature sounds and there's no timer so stays on all night. (Sep 24, 2013)
We have two of these and they’re loud and do the job of drowning our excess noise. We have very sensitive sleepers and these machines drown out garbage trucks, loud neighbors and traffic noise!

I like the simplicity but I do wish there were some options. Mine has intermittent issues with the lower volume button not always working. Overall good as a basic sound machine that does its job

I like this machine for adult use, but find it a little too quiet for use with babies. I prefer the portable version for the kids, though I do love the more "natural" white noise this product produces

This white noise sound machine is a must have. I didn’t want to pay this much but gave in because of the reviews. We ended up buying a second one for the nursery because we were moving it for naptime

We use it for naps and bedtime and I can tell it really helps baby sleep better. Doesn’t have any unnecessary sounds - just good old white noise that can be adjusted. We’re all sleeping better here!

We have two of these in my son's room. He is a VERY light sleeper and this helps drown out noise, with a natural tone. Some noise machines make an obnoxious, electrical sounding noise, unlike these.

Bought this for an extended stay at grandma's and it has been a game changer! Adjustable volume, easy to use, helps little one sleep through the night and nap during the day. We love this!

It's soft enough that it isn't overwhelming and loud enough to drown out other sounds. It makes baby feel safe and know that it's sleep time. However, ours did start to rattle - I need to get it fixed

Love that you can adjust the volume with the flip of a switch or turn of the top or side! We take this w/us whenever we travel and it's pretty compact! My son slept through a superbowl party w/this!!

This is an absolute necessity. Have one in both our girls rooms. We have a small house and noise carries easily. This really helps to drown out the noise so they can sleep. Love that you can adjust.

My son was a light sleeper & his sister used to wake up at least 3 times a night. This sound machine helped my son sleep thru the night and he sleeps at least 12+ hours a night (even on trash days!).

After buying one for my light-sleepers room, I immediately got another for my older son. Our house is old and creaky, and these mask the sounds perfectly. Worth every penny - we never turn them off.

AT FIRST I didn't care for it. But since baby, it's great. It CONDITIONS that noise from the kitchen, or people in the room if you cosleep. stress less about those little noises. Has volume controltoo
