Best for Kids:
A 1990 study found that white noise may help newborns fall asleep faster. While research suggests not everyone responds to white noise, it can be effective if you suspect your child has difficulty falling or staying asleep because of distracting noise.
The Hatch Rest is incredibly well reviewed, with many parents saying its multiple functions make bedtime and mornings easier. It’s a sound machine and night-light in one, and the whole thing is highly adjustable. The smartphone app means parents can control lighting and sounds remotely and program favorites for a consistent schedule.
The Time-to-Rise program, another feature of the Hatch Rest, uses colors to gently wake children in the morning.
