White Noise Baby

For a quiet sleep of the baby, the so-called “white noise” is perfect. White noise is similar to the tunes of circulating blood in the placenta of the mother, which quietens and instantly lulls the baby. Some mothers even say that the child is calming the tune of a vacuum cleaner or a hairdryer. But this level of tone can only be used for a short time, for instance, to reassure the baby. And in order for a kid to sleep for a longer time, it is better to use similar applications.

The White Noise Baby tool creates a background for the toddler, which affords him to not react to harsh home tones, and also immerses the child in a dream with a brief awakening. Important: the loudness of the utility should be approximately to the tune of water in the shower. Arrange the device between the children if you have twins or two kids that sleep in the same room. Or at the exit from the room, in front of the door, if the main noise that can disturb the crumb – household. And closer to the window, if the tunes of cars or screams of children on the street – the main reason that the baby is difficult to fall asleep.

The Relaxing Sounds of Nature application is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of natural sounds or enter the easy trance under Tibetan tunes.

Install it on iPhone or iPad, you will see ten sections, from which you can choose one that will provide the best option for mood and relaxation: morning atmosphere, chirping birds, forest and mountains, rain and thunderstorms, beach and waves, underwater world,  music for meditation and much more.

In each section you will find several options to choose from: rain can be tropical, light, knock on the roof or leaves, accompanied by a thunderstorm. To listen to the melodies, just tap on the icon next to the name, and the switch is in the upper right corner in the form of a traditional stop-symbol – a square. The melody will work in the background, even if the smartphone will put the screen on the lock.

Lullaby of the rain

If you click on the information icon “i” in the line, the menu will open, with which you can add a song to your favorites, make it a ringtone (though it’s a whole story with email sending and conversion). There is an opportunity to choose a picture, and it will fully correspond to the musical theme, put on the display a dial that will show not only the hours and minutes but the full date with the time of day.

Say, twenty minutes you are lulled by the sound of rain, after which you sail to the kingdom of Morpheus.

And vice versa, in tinctures there is an opportunity to choose a suitable melody for awakening, which will take you out of your sleep unobtrusively and gently.

But, of course, from a hundred and four variants you can choose anything: the ticking of the clock, the cat’s purring, the sounds of a fire in the fireplace or Tibetan chants.

Useful noise

By the way, the timer is not only for sound but for silence. If you prefer to meditate for half an hour in complete soundlessness, then the Nature Sound chosen by you will return to the real world exactly at the specified time.

Sounds can be mixed using the Mixer on the bottom toolbar. Thus, for example, a gentle melody of the flute is superimposed on the rapping of the rain. You can compose endlessly, combining two or three compositions.

By the way, in a separate line of settings, lullabies are included for some reason, so it is not worthwhile to look for them among other melodies. If everything is clear with waves, rain, and tweets, then a separate collection of noise causes curiosity: blue, brown, pink, and white. They are so named according to their signal spectrum. Each of them has a special influence on the psyche and the consciousness of a person.

White noise includes all noise spectra and is an effective masker of extraneous sounds. It is great for reading, studying, and any other activities that require concentration and concentration.

Pink noise – ciliary, is a mixture of high and low frequencies, which produce a hypnotic effect of the waterfall. He is more than a goiter for relieving stress, without depriving you of the tone and activity.

Brown noise consists of low sound frequencies. Good sleep, calms children and animals, relieves a headache, and disguises ringing in the ears. It is often used in therapy for the treatment of a migraine.

Blue noise – high frequency, sounds more sharply and is a derivative of the differentiation of pink noise.
