DISREGARD ALL NEGATIVE REVIEWS STATING THAT THE HEARTBEAT SOUND IS NOT REALISTIC.

As a physician and a mom, I can assure you that one of the sounds is precisely what your little angel has been listening to for the past 40ish weeks. The sound mimics the mother's aorta/iliac arteries, and if you've ever listened to a vascular doppler, you'll appreciate it. Just because there are some parents who don't like the "harshness" of the sound doesn't mean that your little one doesn't feel right at home because of it. Your infant is not used to a manufactured "lub dub" heartbeat that adults consider a "normal" heartbeat sound. I have used this product for the past 21 months with my daughter, and she was sleeping 10 hours through the night by 6 weeks old (thanks also in part to the book 12 Hours Sleep by 12 Weeks Old), which I HIGHLY recommend as well.

First of all, I have never written a bad review before, but I must for this product! My 2-year-old son sleeps great with a $15 white noise machine, but he was not ready to give it up so we had been looking for another for our 4-month-old. I was SO excited about this product, since it was the "premium" model, was especially for babies (our other is not) AND it has the ipod adapter. BUT, upon trying it for the first time we quickly decided to return it. The sound options are HORRIBLE. There is a womb/heartbeat that is really weird, one that sounds like a car horn, and others that my older son described as a "rocketship" and "monsters". There is a "rain" sound, but it is really high-pitched so it bothered my ears. Also, the music function is just plunky sounding midi files - nothing too special. We ended up returning this product and bought a similar $20 machine that is much more pleasant!

Comments about The First Years Sounds For Silence Premium Sound Machine:

We use it at bed time in our 3 months old room once we transitioned him to his own room and crib. It does seem to work at drowning out other noises. Our daughter uses a fan and this is comparable. We like that it plugs into the wall and doesn't take up much space. The sounds do not sound natural at all though. Sounds very mechanical. There is only one sound that we like or will use.

        Comments about The First Years Sounds For Silence Premium Sound Machine:

        I started using this when my friend, a mom to twins, referred it. I love it! From birth, my daughter immediately calmed down when the white noise was turned on. Now at 9 months, we use it every night. I only use the white noise sound, never any others. I never needed to try them. The book that came with the machine was very helpful. I didn't think I'd have time to read it with a newborn but somehow I did and I'm so glad. It helped me understand why white noise works and how to use it. My daughter can sleep without it but it makes a big difference. I'm so used to hearing it over the monitor I believe it helps me sleep too!

        Comments about The First Years Sounds For Silence Premium Sound Machine:

        I love this machine, it has multiple sound options and music. I've used it since my baby was born, and I've been using it everyday for the past 6 months. I try different sounds some nights depending on what I think my little one needs. I actually like that it can get really loud, when my baby is crying, something he needs something louder than his crying to actually help sooth him! And it works! And besides, the different sounds actually have different volumes anyway, some are naturally louder than others, so if I feel that I can't get one sound quiet enough, I'll turn it on to one that is naturally softer. I don't ever use the music for bedtime, but I turn it on during the day sometimes while he's playing in his room.

        It also has a timer, which is very handy, it shuts off about an hour after it starts (I like this, as sometimes it takes a little longer for baby to finally fall asleep).

        I will say that there is just one small feature I'm not too crazy about, and it's that the on/off switch is always lit while the machine is on, and when you turn the timer on, it blinks - I keep baby's room dark, and I find it a little distracting to have a little blinking light in a dark room, but I solved this by putting a cloth over top of it, so no big deal!

          I had been having trouble getting my newborn baby boy to sleep in his crib. His favorite place to sleep was on my chest. When I would put him in bed, it lasted 30-60 minutes at best before he was up and crying. Since buying the machine, he sleeps in his bed at night; he is content during waking hours, kicking and playing to Mozart. I am able to be so much more productive with this machine in my life!

            I really don't understand why there are so many negative reviews about this sound machine. It's not cheaply made and it works great! It is the only thing that kept my son asleep for the first 2 months of his life. He's now sleeping 5.5 hours through the night without any sleep training. I love how this machine runs continuously. Why would I want it to shut off part of the way through the night or during his nap? That makes no sense to me. I love that it has batteries and a plug option and I love how many sounds it offers. The heartbeat was definitely my son's favorite. I also LOVE the MP3 adapter and have used it to play music while cleaning the house in addition to getting him son to listen to lullabies. Love, love love.

                    I use the mp3 or the built injustice on this to put my brothers 2yearold child to sleep when I babysit for him! It calms her down and has a built in nightlight for her. Also it has a timer so you can set it and it will turn off by itself! Great product! I'm buying it for my baby!

                        I read a lot of reviews about this product and saw demonstrations of how it helped soothe babies in distress. Unfortunately, this product did not work for our baby. It made my baby cry louder. I tried all of the different settings to see if he liked one of the sounds and he didn't. Also the volume was loud, at the lowest setting it was still loud.

                          Fabulous! We use the white noise setting. It stays on all night and has battery option if the power goes out or for travel. Loove it! However if the power goes off you have to restart it. Doesn't switch modes automatically. Has nightlight option. Very bright though. My son is 2 and we have been using it every night without fail. About to buy another for our newborn.
