A crying baby can makes his or her parents fussy and frustrated.
There could be many reasons which make your baby fussy, crying or unable to sleep, including illness, colic, or too much noise or too little noise.
Before going to alter your babyâ€™s sleeping environment, wait a moment and just think what the main cause is for fussy and crying baby or upset at bedtime.

After evaluating the causes of your crying baby, you find out that there has been an environmental change that has occurred, but or out of your control, then you might consider creating some â€œwhite noiseâ€ in your babyâ€™s environment to help drown out these horrible and loud sleep disruptors.
White noise defines as a repetitive and monotonous sound and it is also defined as noise that is occurring constantly and, as a result, we have tuned it out.
Most of the parents consider as, noise is their best friend, because this is the combination of all frequencies and is most likely used as a sound blocker.
White noise can be enjoyed in many ways. The most important ways are by playing a pre-recorded CD or using one of the many white noise generators available.
They both accurately produce a static like sound that blocks unwanted noise and finally soothes your crying baby. Noise generators produce a soothe sound like running water or fans in the foreground.
There are many items in your house that create white noise that you might not even realize. Some of those which create white noise as they operate are:
- Air conditioners
- Vacuum cleaners
- Cloth dryers
- Running water
- Analog clock with a ticking second hand
- Fish aquarium
