I LOVE that this item is portable
June 2, 2017
UPDATE: original review below was as of early 2017. My first sound machine began to break after 4-5 mths where the power stops working and the music doesn’t stay on. I assumed this was because I dropped the machine a few times so I purchased a second machine in may 2017. It’s now April 2018 and the second machine isn’t working well, the power doesn’t always work and the sound sounds like it has interference (I have never dropped this one.)
I will be buying a third machine because it works the best for us but it seems each machine has a problem with the power adapter cutting out after several months of constant use all night every night plus naps during the day. Overall that’s a lot of use for this machine and therefore I only removed one star from my original 5 star rating.
I use this item for my infant when she needs to sleep. The description of sounds is not always accurate...it isn't accurate on this post and it's not accurate when you view this item on the walmart website.
the different sounds I received are: white noise, running brook, rainfall, thunderstorm, summer night and ocean waves.
I LOVE that this item is portable. For newborns who need some sort of white noise when they sleep, this item is perfect to take in the stroller or car seat to ensure your baby blocks out other noise. I just unplug the adapter from the item by her bed, stick the batteries in and take it with us on outtings. I agree with some other reviews that the green "on" light can be a little too bright depending on its location in the room and your personal preference...so we just placed a clean sock over the light to block it out. The sounds on it sound good to me, no sound is tinny and we all sleep better with it.
Totally recommend for newborns and parents!
