I need 'noise' for my baby to sleep.

I run a fan in my 7 month old daughter's room when she sleeps to drown out other noises so she doesn't wake up. But the fan cools off her room a lot and I don't want her to get cold. Any suggestions on what to use for that kind of noise withouth the cold air?

  • A radio tuned in to a spot between stations so it's only white noise. It's the same sound as the fan, only without the cooling effect.

  • I used a womb bear. You can buy it at Toys R Us.

  • You can always just face the fan away from her. Fans don't really cool the air, they just move it, so your perspiration evaporates faster.

  • I had a sound machine. It played white noise, rain, heartbeat...

  • i used a heartbeat bear, but if i had it to do over - they now sell a my first scout or my first violet (by Leapfrog) at Target for about $20. It plays your choice of several different sounds.

  • we have to use a fan also at our house (it is too quiet to sleep without it) (live in the country) we have it on the lowest setting facing away from us and it does blow the cold air around the room we just use more blankets. when she gets cold i just cover her back up and make sure she is warm. she normally does not like blankets she is always warm and when she is cold she will wear a blanket and she will knock it off when she is warm so just try to keep her warm when she gets cold and let her do the rest.

  • well, you can always use extra blankets, warmer jammies, or switch "noise" methods all together. you can try running a lullabye cd on quiet! :)

  • I've been using a sound machine for my Son since he was born. It's called "Sound Sleeper by Dex Baby Products". BabiesRUs has it online for $24.99. We use it every night on the "wind" sound and my Son sleeps great. It has many sounds to choose from.

  • We also use the Sound Sleeper by Dex. We've used it since getting it for a shower gift as my husband and I love it ourselves. Now, the baby likes the different sounds too and we can hear it through the monitor, lol.
