Rain, storms, wind, even critters crawling in the attic can make a quiet night’s rest impossible for a child. Sometimes these noises bring on an overactive imagination causing sleep disturbances night after night. When consolation hugs, pleading and bribing no longer have any effect, it is time to bring in the white noise.
White noise sound machines can often drown out the constant source of irritation such as traffic noise. In addition, with a constant stream of soothing sound, the unexpected noises such as dogs barking at 3 AM, become less noticeable. Many models are small enough to be transported on vacation which will help ease the anxiety of sleeping in a new environment with the lull of familiar sounds. Even adults will find that using a white noise machine during travel is helpful to fall asleep faster, and stay asleep, by blocking out the noise of loud hotel guests and slamming doors!
