All children are unique, and you know what soothes them most. The Voice Recorder will allow you to personalise your Aroma-Snooze experience by making a recording (up to 30 seconds) that can be played on a continuous loop. A popular sound is to record your own long, slow ‘shushing sound’ a sound recommended by Dr Harvey Karp, a professor of pediatrics. A Shushing sound is known to calm and comfort, helps stop crying and fussing, and helps your baby go to sleep and stay asleep. Why it works? Newborns don’t need silence. In fact, having just spent months in utero – where Mum’s blood flow makes a shushing sound louder than a vacuum cleaner – they’re happier, they’re able to calm down, and they sleep better in a noisy environment. How to do it At its simplest, you can record the “shush” sound into your Aroma-Snooze and let is play back on a continuous loop through the whole night, or as long as you wish, or at different times through out the day.
Studies have also shown that a child hearing their parents or care givers voice can significantly reduce stress. In the studies, there was little to no difference between those who had only heard their voice compared to those who heard their voice when physically present.
The Aroma-Snooze built in Voice Recorder allows you to record a message to your child. This may be ideal to play at anytime when they are feeling uncomfortable, stressed, experiencing separation anxiety or simply just upset. This may be ideal for when they are with a babysitter or if a parent or care giver is away from home.
