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 :(

    This turned out to be a great gift. I didn't think i would need it but baby loves music and fetal/heart beat sound. It was a life saver during a fussy week of short naps.... I plugged this is and baby slept a good 2 hrs -Mommy did too!!!

      Comments about The First Years Sounds for Silence Premium Nursery Sound Machine:

      We love this sound machine. We received our first one as a gift from our baby shower. When my daughter came home from the NICU, she couldn't sleep when it was silent. We picked one of the whooshing noises available and it did the trick. It even helped me and my husband sleep better. We went out and bought a second one, tor make sure we have a back up. It also has a great option for music. My daughter likes to listen to the preset music while she plays in her room.

        My baby loves this thing! She seems to prefer the heart beat setting but there are many to choose from and you can even hook your phone up to it to play music over the speakers. I use this item everyday and it has been a godsend!

          I needed a sound machine for my 5 month old to stay asleep. Before I found this machine, I was using an app for white noise, but it wouldn't play continuously and once it stopped, baby would wake up.
          This machine plays all night long on a continuous loop and has different sound options. The nightlight is nice too, especially when you travel. Baby loves it and is getting longer stretches of sleep at night!
          Only wish is that the wave/ocean sounds were a little better.

          Creepy sounds

          By Jenna

          from Alexandria, VA

          Comments about The First Years Sounds for Silence Premium Nursery Sound Machine:

          Some of the sounds are very creepy, and the power button is very bright. For both of those reasons, I would recommend a different sound machine.

            We have two of these...one for home and one we leave at our beach house. We also traveled with our three month old and brought the sound machine. The baby slept great and I think the sound machine really helped to give him a consistent routine. If there were more settings I would give it five stars.

              I bought this for my 4 month old son. He falls asleep to white noise - plain old radio static white noise. This machine has that which is why I gave it 3 stars. It's not a 5 star product bc the other white noises are ridiculous. They all sound similar in that they sound like haunted house sound effects. I don't know who would really be looking for that. The power button also is a bright blue light so even when you have the night light option off, it still lights up pretty bright. Not ideal when you want the baby sleeping in the dark. Besides the white noise it also has classical music options. No complaints about them though I don't use them often.

                  Since my husband died five months ago, I have been unable to sleep more than an hour or two at a time, before I awaken to listen for sounds of him. I thought perhaps the baby monitor would provide some reassuring background noise. It works! I have been sleeping for longer periods, and awakening much less frequently.
