Best of Baby Winner for Best Sound Machine
Part of building baby’s ideal sleep environment is imitating the noises they grew accustomed to in utero. Contrary to popular belief, the womb can be a noisy place with the sounds of your heartbeat, digestive system and blood flow. Using a white noise machine can actually soothe baby and help them get better rest. Our favorite? The new Hatch Rest 2nd Gen Smart Sound Machine. Like the original, it boasts a nightlight with infinite color options; different sounds, such as white noise, the ocean, rain and a heartbeat and the beloved “time-to-rise” feature, which uses lights and sound to let your little one know that it’s time to get out of bed. But this latest and greatest model boasts a “time-for-bed” feature, in addition to an updated design with a dimmable LED clock and quick-access buttons for light and volume control.
A plethora of sounds, colors and light intensities help you create the perfect sleep environment for your baby
“Time-to-rise” and “time-for-bed” features use different colors to teach little ones when to wind down for sleep and when to wake up
There’s a companion app that lets you remotely control and program the device right from your smartphone
