White Noise Machine

From Marpac. This lightweight, easy to pack machine allows your baby to sleep peacefully, even if you are away from home. The long cord makes it easy to plug in anywhere, ensuring a good night's sleep for everyone ... including you! Moms on our team love this product. One says, "The sound of white noise is very similar to what babies hear when in the womb. Plus, it's a great sleep cue - when I turn on the white noise machine, the babies know it is time to for bed."
