And a baby shusher!!!

Baby Shusher - The Soothing Sleep Miracle for Babies

This thing was our go to for 3 months, I get it for everyone

I am not exaggerating when I say that this is a lifesaver. It may seem expensive at about $35, but it is worth absolutely every penny. I’m sure there are other “white noise machines” that you can find, but I own two of these and they work on every baby I’ve ever tried it on (this is what I get people for baby showers).

I first learned that this existed about two months after our first child was born and it was a lifesaver. I brought it to the hospital when my wife was giving birth to our second child a little over a year ago.

The attending nurse was so surprised by it, she asked if she could borrow it for an hour. Of course I said yes. She came back 45 minutes later totally astonished. She had brought it into the nursery where five babies were really struggling to fall asleep and were keeping each other awake.

She said that within two minutes of using the thing two of the babies had fallen asleep and the other three had calmed down. Additionally, within five minutes all five of them were asleep.

The thing has two settings: one for duration and one for volume. The duration can be set to either off, 15 minutes, or 30 minutes. It automatically shuts off after those time frames. The volume is simply a swivel and can be adjusted as needed.

You will not regret this. It’s the one essential purchase you will make.

I am 34 weeks on my second and my first is 2.5 years old.

Not only am I like "meh" to doing all the insane baby stuff - but we are moving in November (with a three month old - lort help us).
And because of that, I can't really have a ton of stuff around because we are packing up and trying to stage our house.

My essential list:

  • Bassinet that I don't hate (first time around I had a stand alone wooden one that was bulky, hard to move, and creaked). This time I have my BFF's hand me down Arms Reach Co-sleeper (it essentially attaches to your bed to extend the bed and/or functions like a bassinet.
  • Changing table/space - seriously, you need a legit, doesn't break your back location for changing diapers that you don't have to move around and don't care if some poop or pee gets on it. Doesn't have to be fancy, just a space dedicated to that function.
  • Breast Feeding pillow (if you go this route) - as the other mom said, boppy's are cumbersome and slide around. My Brest Friend is worth every stinking penny. You can even stand up and walk around with this thing clipped on while you grab something really quick and are still feeding off the boob.
  • Boppy Newborn lounger - it's like a little donut to sit your baby in. The baby is generally pretty happy in it, you can have your hands and some independence.
  • Pack n Play - usually set up in my living room with the Boppy Lounger in it (at highest level the mattress will go) as a nice safe space to set your turdlet down (that isn't in your bedroom/their room). Plus when you travel or something, it's your crib.
  • Baby Swing - My son LOVED his - it was a life saver, hoping our daughter will be the same. I have the Graco Simple Sway - used it for my son - hoping the motor holds out (I've read reviews that the motor dies eventually) - but I'll use it til it dies - worth every penny.
  • Baby Shusher - Uhh seriously, this thing is fcking magic to a infant. Screaming at 3 am? Turn this puppy on and they chill out immediately (unless there is something seriously wrong, I suppose). It saves you from having to do it with your mouth (sooo tiring) and is far more effective than a white noise machine.
  • White Noise Machine - this is a personal preference, but an essential for me. I have the 'LectroFan (it's non mechanical like the Marpac Dohm - so it never gets a wonky rattle to it). Helps the baby sleep and can block out day to day noises to help with startling awake.
  • Nipple shields (if you breastfeed) - makes the first few weeks of breastfeeding a relative "cake walk" compared to trying to get the perfect latch. A lot of lactation consultants will poo poo this and say it makes it harder for baby to get used to it. Whatever. I used it for 6 weeks with my son - saved me pain, made it easier for him to latch and eat, and he eventually self weaned off of them (I would always try first without them and eventually it just was fine as he got older and more experienced). Who cares if the kid uses them the ENTIRE TIME? so long as they are fed.
  • Haakaa Manual Breast Pump (again, if boobfed) - I hate pumping. Hate. Especially middle of the night, half asleep, kid only takes one boob. The Haakaa uses suction and gently (and quietly) draws from your other breast. You can also use it to take the edge off if you are out of the house for longer than the requisite two hours your LO allows you to go without being milked.

    Outside of those items - it's just the standard clothes, diapers, bottles, baby monitors, etc.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
    And yes - the amnesia is real.

My friend swears by this baby shusher thing. I don't think it'd be too boring or anything but she used it for his first six months.

It absolutely is easier to put a newborn baby to sleep on their stomach (in my experience with 2). I only ever allowed it for brief daytime naps, while they were feet away in a bassinet. Nighttime, no way! At night if I have the opportunity I am passed the fuck out, which is why it’s scary to leave a newborn in a risky position like that.

I’m sorry to say but you just gotta keep trying. Swaddle tightly, maybe a pacifier, and a shusher. You’re just not going to get great sleep for yourself with a newborn unless you have a partner or other extra help to be there for you.

There’s a reason every swaddle and crib and pediatrician repeats ad nauseum “back is best”.

u/kingOlimbs · 2 pointsr/orangecounty


Though I'm not a parent myself, I work for a high end newborn photographer so I'll just give you tips on my observations.

  • Swaddle tight with stretchy materials and hold the arms down to the sides when swaddling

  • if mom is nursing, stay away from gassy vegetables and acidic foods as well. From our experience when the mom eats these things the baby is miserable the next day because of gas. We basically just recommend a boring bland diet. Only for the first few weeks though. After the first 3 or 4 weeks and then its usually ok. Every baby will be different so your mileage may vary. But from our experience 99% of the time we have cranky crying babies for the whole session is because mom had like spicy food or something else. Rule of thumb for us basically if the food has the potential to make your stomach uncomfortable sometimes then it might make baby uncomfortable as well

  • Get a yoga ball. trying to sooth baby, hold baby with head to your heart, sit on ball and start bouncing gently. Get yoga socks too if you have slippery floors.

  • diaper rash. Use huggies or honest brand. 9 out of 10 babies that come in with a rash are using pampers. Kirkland brand wipes from costco are great too. Our studio is stocked with huge packs of them.

  • Formulas. I'm not sure on the brands for this but don't go out buying huge amounts right away because some babies might not like them very much. Might make them gassy too so you may have to try a few brands before you land on the one that is right. There are also ones for sensitive stomachs ( more expensive though)

  • get a baby shusher or white noise, either this or this one, we use both in our studio.

  • get chux from amazon (basically look like puppy pads but are not scented or no chemicals) you'll probably seem them at the hospital. use them on your changing table, keep a few in your car. everywhere really so that where ever you are you can change baby an hopefully avoid soiling a bed/car/couch etc.
  • newborn size clothes is often too big for actual newborns
  • If you are getting photos taken 7-10 days is ideal. Most of the newborn photos you'll see are of 7-10 day old babies. Time will vary if preme or multiples. Don't wait several weeks and then still expect to get the same type of photos. at the very least try to book within 24 hours of giving birth though that may only apply to the photographer work for because most of our clients book well in advanced but there's always a few every now and then that call in trying to get in the same day and we have to behave ourselves when we explain that wont be possible.
  • Gripe water, buy it
  • Don't touch her stomach after she's given birth.
  • Get her a push present
  • have your go bag and car seat ready in the car even earlier than recommended. honestly not sure what's recommended but just do it as early as you can. a lot of our clients have been going early recently.

    That's all I can think of for now. Good luck to you and don't worry nobody knows what they are doing the first time. Just by making this post looking for advice you will probably be more ready that many of the first time dads that come into our studio. Just enjoy your time together as much as possible those first few weeks and take lots of photos and videos even if its just on your phone. and back them up. babies grow so fast the first few weeks so they will never be that tiny again. Blink and its over. Oh and for the future, age 2 sucks but 3 should be good. you can usually start bribing them by 3. Again I want to reiterate that I myself and not a father (but I hope to be) so take all of this however you like. I've been working at this studio for almost a decade now (i'm 30) and these are just the things that I've seen and learned from all the parents that come in. Also, Asian babies are the best, have one of those if you can, they're usually prefect for their sessions...

The Baby Shusher seemed like just another gadget but it is a game changer. There are apps out there that do similar things but it ties up your phone. Have used it daily since the little nugget was born.

u/JoslynMSU · 2 pointsr/sleeptrain

I would second babywearing. Right now LO is so young that you really shouldn't be doing any aggressive training. Babywearing worked so well for me because I had the same problem that my LO only wanted to sleep when snuggled. That and walks. At some point you realize that you need to lose the battle to win the war. To me, LO getting some decent naps in to reset paid off much better than fighting to get him to nap where I want him to.

So for shushing there is this white noise machine:
baby shusher

I have this and I love it. Just provides a Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh Shhhhhhhhhhhh Shhhhhhhhh noise. There are options for 15 minutes or 30. It's battery operated but LO has this at daycare and uses it for every nap and I have only had to replace the batteries once in the 9 months he has been there.

u/pineapplefarmer1 · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

A week at the most. We did it where where you go in and comfort every 5 minutes night one, 10 minutes night two and three, 15 night four, etc. Buying a shusher and this giraffe helped a lot as they gave my son comfort and now he knows when the shusher and the giraffe come on it’s time to sleep.

u/KaNikki · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

  1. this bed just looks so damn comfortable. Like you could just fall into it.

  2. graham crackers and milk are so tasty and great for a midnight snack!

  3. these adorable sleeping cat pajamas even have matching slippers.

  4. I personally prefer the dark, but this looks like a beautiful night light to fall asleep to, especially for anyone who likes the ocean.

  5. if the baby shusher doesn't work, play the baby some 80's music

    “She used to say she could taste sleep and that it was as delicious as a BLT on fresh French bread.”

    Thanks for the contest!
u/Karmakerosene · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

1.) It's a couch, it's a bed... What can I say, I WANT IT!

2.) Chocolate chip cookies and milk are the best. Lulls me right to sleep!

3.) Flannel for the whole family! Too cute.

4.) Night light and home fragrance diffuser in one! Plus it's a cute little owl. I also love Bath and Body Works. I have a few of these and love them!

5.) This... Thing is supposed to help babies sleep. No idea if they work. But it's interesting.

BONUS: This panda plush?

She used to say she could taste sleep and that it was as delicious as a BLT on fresh French bread.

u/lov_liv · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

A lot of babies will protest being swaddled at first but will eventually calm down (with that bouncing/shushing/white noise thing you've got going on) and then being swaddled is what will help them stay asleep.

You might look up the double swaddle to make sure he can't break free.

Are you using a yoga ball? That was my baby's favorite form of bouncing and easier than doing it manually, lol.

They also make a baby shusher to save your vocal chords - my friends swear by it:

ETA: Maybe he would like Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit better than being swaddled? If I were you, I'd try anything at this point.

I have heard nothing but good things about this baby shusher.

u/glorysk87 · 1 pointr/NewParents

Our kid was the same, wouldn't sleep at all. It was mind numbingly terrible for the first couple of weeks. Then we bought the shusher which helped our kid sleep when nothing else would.

It sounds dumb, it's just a machine that makes a stupid shushing noise. But boy did it knock him out.

u/mandiefavor · 1 pointr/Parenting

Single mom of a five month old baby here, so like you I handled all wakeups. She did the standard non-stop fussing until she was a little over two months old. I was walking her around my apartment in her stroller at 3am losing my mind. What really made a difference was the Shusher. It sounded so silly to me but it has been a lifesaver. I still use it to soothe her to sleep, and it's easier than shh-ing her myself. Best $40 I ever spent. They also have an app but it's $5 and glitchy. It will be my go-to gift for any baby shower for here on out.

And it does get better, I promise!!

u/WingdGrasshopper · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My baby enjoys a shusher (any white noise machine would prob work) it calms him and he now knows it means time to sleep!

u/consuella99 · 1 pointr/Parenting

I would actually get the onsie in a 3-6 month size. Most people get new moms clothes in 0-3 months so I go up at least one size when I buy a gift. Also check out the comments on the onsie if they have it as some infant clothes sizes are crazy wrong.

I have a lot of friends who are pregnant or just a baby in the last couple of years and was a Nanny for over 10 years and I buy one traditional gift for the baby and the rest are gifts that are not the 'norm. Depending on how much money you want to spend here are some ideas: mani/pedi or massage for mom (Groupon is great!), restaurant gift cards that deliver, house cleaning services, baby massage class, box of healthy snacks especially for breastfeeding moms,

Here are some more traditional but still very useful gifts parents might not know about that I posted somewhere else.

Hands free bottle holder

Plush pacifier: I get this for almost everyone because you loose so many pacifiers and it keeps it in the baby's mouth.

Non-electric travel bottle warmer

Swaddle Pod

Cuddle-U Nursing Pillow- looks like a boppy but it does so much more. I really like to give this to parents because you're not supposed to lay infants straight on there backs after feeding so you prop them up with this. It helps with spit ups, gas, and colic.

Baby Shusher - actually works and just saw they have a app but only for iphones for now

Hope this helps!

u/BabyBuster70 · 1 pointr/Parenting

This worked great to get our baby asleep. Kind of expensive since there isn't much to it, but $30 is nothing if it gets them to sleep more.
