You might think your baby needs complete silence to sleep, but your little one may actually like to have some background noise. The easiest solution? A baby white-noise machine can help (just be sure you use it correctly). We found the best ones so he or she will be sound asleep in no time.
Best for Realistic Sound
Tired of shushing your baby to sleep? Turn the job over to the pro. This sound machine provides 15 or 30 minutes of continuous shushing sounds, making it easy to follow Dr. Harvey Karp's The Happiest Baby on the Block technique.
Best Lullaby Sound Machine
This quirky little creature doubles as a sound machine and a light projector. Turn it on to play the perfect lullaby and watch your little one be mesmerized by the soft-glowing stars that dance around the ceiling. The coolest part? There's an integrated sensor that'll trigger songs to sound when your little one fusses and cries.
Best for Womb Noises
Meet Ewan, your baby's new best friend. He emits heartbeat and womb sounds to soothe your newborn and make him or her feel like they're back in the womb. In addition to the relaxing sounds, Ewan also gives off a soft pink glow.
Best Smart Sound Machine
This baby sound machine can be connected to your smartphone via an app, so you can be super sly about adjusting its settings without disturbing your little bub. This is especially effective for the first line of defense when it comes to soothing.
If you notice your little one is stirring while you're not in (or near) the nursery, you can turn on a soft glow and cue up some sounds to draw in their attention. It's also the perfect way to wake your little one up in a gentle way if you're not in the room.
Best for Volume Control
As we mentioned earlier, one study cautions against too-loud sound machines that could potentially damage an infant's hearing. This Skip Hop soother lets you control the volume of what your baby hears, from lullabies to nature sounds.
Best Plush Soother
Instead of counting sheep to sleep, your baby can be soothed by this one instead! Strap this cuddly little lamb to your baby's crib, and choose from four soothing sounds, including a mother's heartbeat, to lull your baby to sleep
Best Motion Soother
Your little one doesn't have to sleep alone. These swimming underwater pals will accompany him to dreamland. The lights and music gradually dim every 10 minutes, or you can use the remote to turn them off without disturbing your snoozing babe.
Best for Naps
Got a busy household? Use this white-noise machine to block out ambient noise — the dog barking, doorbell ringing, and your older kids running around — so your baby can get some sleep even when everyone else is awake.
Best Bassinet Soother
Clip on this cute cloud to your baby's bassinet when your little one needs some soothing. Perfect for when you're on the go or keeping baby close as you get work done around the house, this portable sound machine offers 15 calming sleep sounds. Plus, the cloud changes colors, so baby will be completely mesmerized while you get your stuff done!
Best Triple-Threat Soother
This adorable elephant has quite a few tricks up her trunk! Choose between four melodies to ease your baby into a deep slumber, let the nightlight glow, and don't forget to turn on the calming light projector. Your mini gazer can fall asleep underneath "the stars."
Best Projection Soother
Lights and sound work together to help your baby fall asleep faster. Choose from ocean waves, lullabies, and Mozart, plus three dreamy images to project onto the nursery walls or ceiling. It's also voice-activated to automatically turn on in response to your baby's cry
Best for a Nautical Nursery
Send your li'l Captain to sweet seas of slumber with Wyatt the Whale. Wyatt has over 20 sounds to stream (10 are lullabies and 10 are different types of ambient sounds, like a trickling stream). You can also download an app to connect your phone to this soother, so if you hear baby getting fussy from another room, you can control the soother settings from a safe distance
Best Travel Soother
Designed for use away from home, clip this soother to your baby's car seat or stroller to help them snooze on the go. It's lightweight and perfectly portable to stash in your diaper bag, so you'll never leave home without it. This updated version features four soothing sounds for baby: Heartbeat, white noise, ocean, or lullaby.
Best for a Safari Nursery
Leave this friendly lion in your little love's nursery for a sweet delivery of sleep-inducing sounds — from white noise to Mozart. Also to calm your baby down? A soft glow that'll let your cub know he's not alone. And the lion sleeps tonight...
