Almost every parent has, at some point or another, been willing to try virtually anything that promises to help their child go to bed. Whether you have a fussy newborn, an energetic toddler, or your child who simply has difficulty falling and staying asleep, you've probably felt the effects of a child who didn't have a good night's sleep. You might be wondering, then, what are some white noises that are good to put your child to sleep, since a well-rested child equals a happy child (and parent).
If you can think back to your college years, when you pulled all-nighters fueled only by caffeine and youthful determination, you probably experienced a night or two of insomnia. But the difference between an adult and a child when it comes to sleeplessness, is that your little one's mind is still growing, developing, and working overtime creating new synapses. All of that brain activity can be quite tiring, so it makes a bit more sense that children find it harder to wind down than most adults do.
So if you've tried dimming the lights, giving warm milk, reading bedtime stories and still haven't found the right fit for your child's sleep schedule, check out some of these white noises that will help your child fall asleep.
