Getting kids to sleep and having them stay asleep is a tricky thing when you have children. A lot of times when kids won’t go to bed or they won’t stay asleep, the factors are uncontrollable. Parents do EVERYTHING they can do to control the controllable in hopes that it will help kids sleep. One thing that I have found that helps my three-year-old immensely is the Baby Sound Oasis! It’s a Bluetooth speaker that you can access using your phone OR its pre-programmed sounds! And I LOVE the pre-programmed sounds! When we first got the speaker, I was going through all of the sounds and I found one that I really liked. It sounds like a heartbeat with some music in the background. On a particular night where my toddler was having a hard time settling down, I pulled out the speaker and put it on that particular sound setting. Then I told him that the sound is what Mama’s heartbeat sounds like, and that it is a comforting sound because he can hear it and remember that Mama’s always with him. HE LOVED IT. Now when it’s bedtime, he always asks for “Mama’s heartbeat” and he immediately calms down. The other thing I love about this speaker is that you can connect it to your phone and use it as a speaker to play whatever you would like via Bluetooth. Oh yes and another thing…recently we had the power go out in our house. What is awesome is that the Baby Sound Oasis has a battery that charges when it is plugged in, so no need to worry about having power to run it! Which makes it perfect for power outages, traveling or camping!
This speaker was developed by doctors and they say this about sound machines and babies:
“A baby sound machine, especially one offering white noise, soothing music, and nature sounds, is essential to your baby getting a good night’s sleep. Here’s why: Babies are often stressed after being born. A mother’s womb is a very loud environment, and the silence outside the womb can very uncomfortable for the baby. In addition to this, the unfamiliar new sounds of the outside world may be disruptive to their sleep. White noise and our great assortment of sounds simulate the sound of the womb and can create a safe space to sleep, as they help block out other sounds and stimulations that may be causing babies distress. A white noise machine, especially one with 12 different sound selections, can put your baby to sleep and keep them asleep all night long.”
