Lullabies have long been used for comforting babies and helping them fall asleep. However when it comes to calming newborns, white noise is far more effective than lullabies and classical music. Why does white noise work? White noise is just like the 'sssshing' and 'swoooshing' sounds your baby heard for nine months in the womb.
Inside the womb, the noise is constant. It's louder than a vacuum cleaner, 24 hours a day! So your newborn has already been listening to white noise for many months before she is born...and this is one of the reasons babies are calm INSIDE the womb.
Playing continuous white noise is one of the easiest ways to provide your baby with 4th Trimester 'womb service' and make them feel right at home.
