The Baby Shusher with its rattle-like appearance is a unique baby sound machine that emits a ‘shush’ sound to soothe and relax your fussy baby. Any baby suffering from colic will be soothed instantly.
Dr. Harvey Karp, author of the book “The Happiest Baby” has dubbed the “5 S’s: Swaddle, Side-Stomach Position, Suck, Swing and Shush” as the 5 distinct ways you can calm a baby. These combined or sometimes independently will calm your baby and put them to sleep. The rhythmic shushing technique of The Baby Shusher is doctor-tested and approved, and can be very effective at soothing and calming babies.
All babies cry. That is their way of communicating. But if you determine that their cry means “I am sleepy!” your job as a parent is to help them sleep by all means necessary. The Baby Shusher is a parents best friend because instead of “shushing” for 30 minutes straight this little tool does it for you. It is easily set to operate for the preferred time-frame (15 or 30-minutes) and equipped with a useful volume control to let you adjust the sound to a volume that is a little louder than the baby’s cries. It is a simple device that is not complex to use and easy to clean & take care of.
A natural remedy for baby sleep, the Baby Shusher makes a very reliable addition to every parent’s toolbox to help soothe a crying or fussy baby. It is safe and it is practical. If you have been previously using a white noise app or using white noise from a YouTube channel, this means that you will need to have your cell phone, tablet or whatever device is emitting the noise near your babies head. Their can be some concerns about having modern technology ( such as tablets and cell phones ) which can pass radiation to your baby if too close. The Baby Shusher is free of radiation and safe to be near you baby. Let’s take a look at the most promising features of this unique sound machine:
The Baby Shusher is a thoroughly tested technique and doctor-approved sound machine that is designed to break a baby’s crying episode and to naturally engage a calming reflex. The idea is that it relies on natural techniques and tactics that have been used by mothers for years. The intention of the rhythmic shushing sound is to remind your baby of the symphony of noises they are inundated with when inside the womb.
The womb for a baby is a very noisy place indeed with the constant whoosh sounds of blood rushing through the veins and other in utero noises (sound can reach 95-dB which is comparable to a loud vacuum cleaner). Even though the sound may seem a little harsh, it is in fact very calming for a baby.
The Baby Shusher is built with portability in mind to make is easy to use no matter where you are. This sound machine is built to be not only compact and small (easily fits in a diaper bag ), but also easy to clean, which means it is a practical choice to use in the crib, stroller, or car seat. Unlike most other sound machines, this one is very portable, yet still loud enough.
You have full control over the audio volume of the ‘shh sound’ which should be played at a volume louder than your baby’s cry. Adjusting the volume is easy and smooth and should be set to a level that matches the need and environment. Please note that the speaker is at the bottom of the device so if you put it upright you the shushing noise will be muffled. It is best to set the device on its side and not too close to your baby’s head or ears as it can be rather loud.
This shusher is safe and practical to use for newborns and up.
The Shusher is built with a useful timer option to set the unit to run for the preferred amount of time. This lets you play its rhythmic shushing noise for a period of 15 or 30 minutes. Even though it can benefit to have a longer timer in certain situations, such as long car rides, you can easily restart it to run for a further cycle.
Overall, the Baby Shusher works as a good all-round soothing and calming tool if used properly. Even for the high-needs baby it is extremely effective and encourages your baby to change from screaming to content in a relatively short period. It appears to have a pretty solid build and even after dropping a few times on hard surfaces it still continues to work. The only real complaint is the inability to produce a constant sound cycle; 15 and 30 minutes is the only options. But the pros certainly outweigh the cons to make a great purchase. It sure beats the loss of oxygen and a dry throat after shushing for 30 minutes straight.
