Many doctors and baby advice books recommend playing white noise to help soothe a crying infant. When a baby is colicky, white noise can help calm them. This relaxing white noise for babies is 8 hours long, ensuring that the ambience will continue playing all night to help your newborn sleep.
White noise resembles sounds the baby heard in the womb, which has a calming effect. It also masks other distracting noises so that your baby can fall asleep and remain sleeping. White noise is safe for infants and young children. You can learn more about this here.
While playing white noise for babies, it’s important to keep tabs on the volume, because any white noise machine, smartphone, or computer can put out levels that are too loud for your child. It's recommended to play the sound at least a few feet from where your infant is sleeping and to keep the volume no louder than the sound of a soft shower.
Parents can download an app to turn their smartphone into a sound level meter. One good, free, option is the sound level meter app created by the U.S. National Institutes for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) available on the app store as the NIOSH SLM app.
