When we registered for our wedding 14 years ago, sound machines were just becoming popular. We found one that had ocean sounds, birds, storms, etc.
If you ever see one of these at a yard sale you should SNAP IT UP – and sell it to me, haha!
Sounded like a pretty cool concept and we were silly in love putting ridiculousness like this on our registry instead of pots and pans (btw everyone still bought pots and pans).
Since December 6, 2003 – I’m pretty sure we’ve had those sounds as our sleep background every single night we’re home.
The tricky part is when we travel and end up in a super quiet hotel room. We do not even know what to do with ourselves in the silence.
I’ve tried every single free sound machine app out there in the app store and we’ve finally found our favorite!
It may prompt you to do the upgrade, but we still use the free version.
Our favorite sound is the box fan noise.
One of the best features is how you can set a timer for the sound machine and not kill your phone battery overnight.
It even includes the ability to recognize if you’re awake in the middle of the night and the sound machine will start playing again.
I love it! No more worries when we go out of town and forget to pack our sound machine.
