3 Steps to make your own white noise maker - for Free

Creating your own white noise maker is easy: download a free white noise sample here, put it on yourSimple mp3 player mp3 player, CD player or any music device and then play it for your baby.

Once you find out which noise works well for her and when to play it ... you're good to go!

Many (!) babies are easily soothed with a boring, constant background noise - or with a gentle nature sound. That's why white noise machines offer such a good sleep aid and relief from baby colic.

Those real white noise machines are good and not too expensive. But if you want to avoid buying a genuine white noise machine - or test the effect on your baby first - you can easily make your own thanks to the free white noise download below.

Be sure to try the different sounds, as well as some of your own preferred music, lullabies, classical music pieces, ... whichever you have on mp3 or CD.

Step 1. Choose your preferred white noise mp3

True white noise sounds like this:

You may not find this too pleasant to listen too. But remember that the whole purpose is mainly to block out other - really disturbing, hard - noises. Which is proven to improve settling and staying asleep.

A different but classic white noise-like sound is that of a hair dryer:

Alternatively, look for your (baby's) own personal soothing sound: a special song, downloaded or sung by you, gentle classical music, a soft lullaby, ...

Step 2. Put the mp3 on your own mp3 player. Or, burn it onto a CD.

Once you downloaded the mp3, or have chosen the music of your choice, plug it into your mp3 player or any device you use to download and play music.

You can also burn the mp3(s) onto a CD and use a plain CD player in baby's room.

Step 3. Play it to your baby

Whenever your baby is fussy and difficult to soothe - or when she goes down to sleep: play (and loop) your chosen sound on your white noise maker. Experiment with how long you need to keep playing it. That may be for just 5-10 minutes. Or you may need to keep it switched on for the night. If possible, use a timer or fader function, to switch off the noise/music once baby sleeps. Or leave it on if switching off wakes her ...

Make sure the volume level is not too loud, but loud enough to block out the surrounding noise.

Remember that what may sound not too loud to you during the day, may seem quite loud in the middle of the night, when all is quiet outside (of her room).

Would a ready-made white noise maker be more practical?
