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 :(

        Our daughter has to have a sound machine going to sleep good, and this just started making weird noises and turning off, which wakes her up. Only been using it for 3 months. So not impressed!

        Worst White Noise I've Heard

              I registered for this product for my second thinking all sound machines were created equal. Once I received the sound machine, I plugged it in to test out the 6 white noise options. They sounded horrible! Not relaxing or soothing at all. I have since returned the product and exchanged for the Graco sound machine that is $10 more. The only noise we use is the white noise, but it sounds soooooo much better.

                    Great concept with the sound machine but needs some major changes. First issue is the volume. Normally one would want soft sounds to sooth their baby. The volume doesn't go low enough. Very loud in a quiet house at night. Second is with the music. Some of the songs are nice soft classical songs. Then every other song will jump to a upbeat classical song. Sounds like a dance party in the baby's room at 3am. This also goes hand in hand with the volume issue. Wakes my baby up every time. (Keep in mind I vacuum in the same room as the baby while she's sleeping) My third complaint is the "sounds". They are straight up creepy. The white noise and heart beat sound like a horror movie. I didn't even bother trying the ipod connection. Machine has gone right in the trash. I don't recommend this product to anyone.

                      We purchased this sound machine before our now 2 1/2 yr. old was born. It worked like a charm for us, right up until my daughter broke it (she pulled the cord out and broke the pin). So we purchased a replacement. What a HUGE disappointment. Not only was the sound level much softer, it completely stopped working after 5 days... 5 days! So, now we're in the market for another machine. I loved our original machine and really wish this product could be trusted to be consistent.

                        I wasn't impressed with this product. The white noise sounded creepy to me, which wouldn't have been that big of a deal but it also didn't help in any way with my daughter sleeping. The lullaby music isn't bad to listen to, but also didn't help. Not worth it to me.

                              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!

                                    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.
