If only I had heard of these lifesavers when I had my baby! Nights were an ordeal, and my little nocturnal bundle of joy just knew how to keep us awake through the night. I had almost tried everything- swaddling, feeding multiple times, singing- none worked. Dark circles and an agitated me were all that came through of those efforts. Luckily, by the time, my sister had a baby, I had turned wiser and knew more about the concept of white noise and why it is imperative for your newborn to sleep well. For those who don’t know what all the fuss is about- you need to scroll down and read this.

Why White Noise Is Essential:

White noise is technically defined as a random signal generated when different frequencies that we can perceive are put together at equal intensity. In short- it is the noise you will hear when there is no transmission in your television or radio.

A research report on the intrauterine sound levels concludes that the sound levels are higher than expected and to the levels of 72-88dB. Read that report here . And in case you have no idea what that means, sample this- your regular dishwasher makes a noise that is on an average between 55-70 dB and a whistling kettle is around 80dB. So your newborn actually needs a lot of noise around them (even when they sleep) to feel secure and comfortable as they did the previous 9 months. Of course, exposing them to the right levels of white noise and the right apps/gadgets that provide them is crucial in helping your baby sleep well, cry less and de-stress (yes- babies get stressed too!)

Here, we tell you the 5 best apps in the market you need to know of- to have peaceful nights and relaxed mornings with your baby!
