To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Update: have to bring this down to a one star now 😕 it started making these knocking sounds on top of the white noise and it super distracting. It wakes our baby up and also doesn’t let me or my husband sleep. And our return window closed just two weeks ago so we’re unable to return for a new one. So upset. And on top of that the battery stopped working. It NEEDS to be plugged in in order for it to work now. Which is a bummer cause I used to be able to talk this on the go. After only a couple months it has stopped working and now we’re unable to use :/ I would say spend a little more on a better sound machine. This machine was so good at first but didn’t last long at all.
Old review: The best sound machine yet!! I was given a sound machine for my baby shower but it didn’t have an option to stay on all night the most it lasted was 1 hour and then it would turn off. It would wake my baby up when the white noise would randomly shut off at night so I knew I had to find on that had the option to leave on all night. This one did exactly that! I leave this on alllllll night and it’s wonderful. The volume goes SUPER high if you want it to lol I don’t use it all the way up because its way too loud but it’s nice to have an option of leaving the volume pretty high. The other sound machine that was given to me didn’t get very loud. This one also has soooooo many different sounds! I change it up every night so I don’t get tired of the same noise lol you also don’t hear a loop which I like because it doesn’t distract your mind. Me and my husband love it now too and it was meant for our baby!
I absolutely LOVED this machine, but the sound stopped working after only 4 months! The light still works but no sound at all. We used it for my now 7.5-month-old at night and during naps. A little difficult to figure out how to use because there are so many buttons (I had to explain to babysitters & relatives multiple times when they watched her). Fantastic variety of sounds and colored lights, and when my baby was having a crying meltdown, it would often distract her if I flipped through the sounds and she’d stop crying. Makes me sad that it stopped working bc I really loved it. I would buy another if it broke after a year or so, but four months is just too short of a time. And I have no idea how to contact anyone to get a replacement bc there’s no info on the Amazon page :(
Had to update review! We are about 85 days out and it has started making weird noises. The noises are so loud they wake up the baby and don’t allow to us to sleep either. Of course, we are about three weeks outside of the return window. Ugh. We loved this machine.
The only negatives to this white noise machine is the battery charge doesn’t last long, if it isn’t plugged in, and it doesn’t continuously play all night long. It’s easy to use and has good sound to it though. I would probably buy it again!
I loved this so much I bought two. But after a month one has broke. Where the cord connects to charge is messed up. It won’t charge. I am so upset. I thought this would be great for my newborn and it was for a very short time.
I loved this at first. It worked great, sounded awesome, and was everything I needed. I’ve used it every night for three months. It has recently stopped working. It is getting more quiet every night, despite being turned up completely. My baby relies on this to sleep so the unreliability of this product is really frustrating. Obviously three months is too long after to return, but I would not recommend spending your money on this. It won’t last.
Worked ok for 9 months then suddenly developed a ticking sound like the speaker is cracked. The controls are finicky (have to hold down the button to dim/brighten night light and takes forever) the volume control goes from very quiet to very loud in one level, not fun when you have a sleeping baby.
The machine works well and I was pretty pleased with it until a couple of days ago it stopped charging all of the sudden.. so now it doesn’t work. I’ve tried many different charger cables and plugs, nothing! I’m very disappointed.
