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.

I bought this for our newborn baby to help drown out the noise of our house, etc when she was napping or sleeping at night. The good things about this noise maker are that it's small and portable and that it takes batteries and doesn't have to be plugged in all the time. That being said, those positives pale in comparison to the negatives. The volume of the sound is low and barely even gets loud enough to negate the sounds I make when leaving the room, let alone the other sounds outside the room or house. The power button has a blue fluorescent light that is on all the time that is fairly bright and flickers to the beat of the sound that's on. The center button is the "night light" which is actually a blue fluorescent light that also flickers to the beat of the sound that's on. I have no idea why they made this feature because when the machine is on (and/or the "night light") my baby just stares at the flickering light that illuminates the dark room!! I had to tape a piece of black paper over the lights to stop this from distracting my daughter. I will be returning this as soon as I can make it back to Babies R Us :(

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

        Our sons room faces a busy street. We needed something loud enough to be able to block the traffic noise. Unfortunately the volume is not loud enough. We were excited to have numerous options when it came to sounds. Some of the sounds including some of the songs sound a little creepy. The iPod hookup sounds like a great option, but once again the volume on this particular machine is its biggest opportunity. This product might work for some families, but unfortunately it didn't work for ours. We ended up purchasing a product for half the price, that has an awesome volume option!

            I don't love all the music on this but it's really not for my enjoyment. My son quiets quickly once we turn it on. The trick is to start the volume louder then his cry then lower it as he calms.

              We bought this product as we have a toddler and baby sometimes sharing the same room for naps/bedtime; we also recently traveled abroad and wanted extra assurance our kiddos would sleep well. We mostly use the white noise function - for which there are several options, and our baby sleeps really well with that. There are also lights that can be used, but we prefer darkness for sleep. In fact, that's the only aspect we don't like - the power button lights up so much, that we have to cover it in order for the room to be mostly dark. We really like this product though and would buy it again.

                    I thought the functionality of the machine was fine (different sounds, volume control, etc) but it had no effect on my baby. She prefers to hear the dryer run when she's fussy! Therefore I've returned this item.

                    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.

                          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!

                          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!
