What do you immediately do to try and calm a crying baby? You “shhhh”.
I am always somewhat hesitant when it comes to any form of ‘sleep aid’ because I’m fearful that my child will form an association to it that and they grow older, they can’t sleep without it. For some people, this isn’t a concern but if you’re like me and worry, you simply turn the volume down a notch each week until it’s completely off.
The Baby Shusher is different, for us anyway. We haven’t so much used it to get them to sleep but to calm them down. As parents, we all know that babies can go 0-100 real quick and once they’re at 100 it’s often hard to bring them back down closer to a comfortable 0. That’s where The Baby Shusher has come in handy for us.
It’s small and portable so you can take it out with you and utilise it throughout those public meltdowns too. It’s suitable for newborns and older. I’ve often been tempted to try it on Reuben too (haha). I love it so much, we have two. One that stays at home and one that travels with us.I find it great in the car when one of the kids is going crazy, I simply whip out The Baby Shusher and within minutes, they’re calm.
The Baby Shusher is a revolutionary new tool for parents using an ancient but doctor-tested technique to help soothe a fussy baby. The Baby Shusher breaks a baby’s crying spell by engaging his or her natural calming reflex. The rhythmic shush reminds the baby of being inside the womb, where there is a constant inundation of loud sounds from blood flow and other in utero noises (up to 95 dBs, or the sound of a very loud vacuum cleaner). These sounds, which may initially seem harsh, are actually very calming to a baby.
There are two timing options – 15 or 30 minutes and you control the volume.
Priced at $55.95, they make a fantastic baby shower gift and can be purchased from Sleepytot, NZ’s official distributors.
