Published : Categories : baby-sleep. There are countless ways to lull baby to sleep. One of them, however, has taken center stage for some time now: white noise. From revolutionary teddy bears to YouTube videos, these background "noises" attract more and more parents looking for a solution to help their baby sleep through the night. So is it a truly magical solution or just a fashion fad? White noise is just some background noise or sound which is supposed to help baby fall asleep.

What is white noise?
Although most parents swaddle their babies these days, it amazes me how few use white noise. White noise works miracles with fussy babies and is an amazingly powerful cue to boost baby sleep.
