Attention NEW Moms: Behold the Power of White Noise

If I can share one thing I have found to be most useful in my journey as a new mom it would be discovering the power of white noise.  Yes, white noise.  That sound of static that drives most people crazy.  Wyatt is currently 13 months old and it still comes in useful.

For example.....
Wyatt is a product of a routine.  If his routine is off, he is off.  Yesterday he had a day full of fun and received a little to no nap.  When I put him to bed, like clockwork, 2 hrs into his sleep he woke up screaming.  This happens every time he doesn't get a nap or has a big day.  After 10 minutes of walking around the house trying to calm him down (to no avail), I walked in the bedroom, grabbed my phone, turned on the white noise app, and magic happened.

The app I use

He instantly stopped crying, laid his head on my chest and went back to sleep.  It is legit baby magic!  As a baby when Wyatt would start screaming on vehicle rides I would just turn on the white noise and he instantly stopped screaming.  I think it is baby hypnosis.

For all you new moms out there with screaming babies.  Get yourself some white noise and thank me later!  I owe my life to my friend Lisa for sharing this amazing magic with me and now I am sharing with you!  Good Luck!


  1. We've been using white noise since the very first night Lexi was born! It's magic! Not to mention it means we can Netflix after bedtime without having to worry about her hearing us and waking up.
