Play mode lets you choose the sound to lull your little one into dreamland and you can also record your own sounds. Listen mode turns the app on automatically if your baby cries during the night. And, Sleep Tracking mode allows you to analyze your baby’s sleep patterns with colorful, easy-to-read graphs. If you are ready for a good night’s sleep, check out Sound Sleeper for your infant.

Why we love it

For a that provides both soothing sounds and ambient music, White Noise Baby is a great choice. Choose from sounds like a fan, conch shell, or wind chimes or pick a classical music track from Beethoven, Chopin, or Mozart. The shutoff timer fades into silence and will reactivate if your baby begins to fuss. If calming and relaxing your little one at bedtime is difficult, try an app with sounds that soothe.

Why we love it

White Noise Baby provides a nice variety of sounds and music tracks. With a shutoff timer that fades softly and reactivates if your baby starts to cry, this is a helpful app for calming your infant.
