BABY SHUSHER - BABY SUSHER
Designed as a practical solution to the fourth ‘S’ of Dr. Harvey Karp’s, The Happiest Baby on the Block the Baby Shusher provides a rhythmic shushing sound to mesmerise babies and infants into a sleep state. Even adults find The Baby Shusher relaxing.
It is a doctor-approved and thoroughly tested technique designed to break a baby’s cry spell and engage their natural calming reflex. The rhythmic shush reminds baby of being inside mum, with loud sounds of blood flow and other in utero noises up to 95 dBs, or the sound of a very loud vacuum cleaner.The ‘shush’ sound imitates the sounds that baby was used to in the womb and provides a hypnotic familiar noise for baby to relax to.
The Baby Shusher can be set for 15 minute or 30 minute play settings and has adjustable volume settings. It is a compact, easy and sleek accessory that reduces the stresses of trying to settle a fussy baby when out and about, at home or even in the car.
It is portable, easily fits into a nappy bag and only requires 2 AA batteries.
Every Baby Shusher comes with a manufacturer’s 12 month guarantee for material and workmanship defects.
This is the product that will help parents find peace, get more sleep and take control of calming their baby easily.
When do I use the Baby Shusher?
The Baby Shusher is intended to be used when baby has been well fed and burped, has a clean diaper, and is still in a crying spell.
How close in proximity should I put the baby shusher to my baby?
It is important that the Baby Shusher is within two feet of baby’s hearing radius. This will ensure that baby hears the rhythmic shush above their own cry and engages the natural calming reflex. The Baby Shusher’s rhythmic shush can easily get lost if simply set on the dresser across the room from crib. The first goal of the Baby Shusher is to stop your baby from crying and not to simply provide soothing background noise (although this is an option once baby has calmed down). When baby has stopped crying, you can turn down the volume to suit.
Where should the speaker be pointed?
The direction of the rhythmic shush sound is VERY important. In order for baby to hear and engage with the rhythmic shush, the sound waves should be traveling TOWARD baby’s ears (and not away). This means that speaker on the bottom of your Baby Shusher should be pointed toward your baby (whether in crib, in car seat, in stroller, or while you are holding baby).
Can the loud volume level hurt my baby's ears?
Remember, your baby is used to constantly hearing noises in utero at volumes up to 95 dBs (which is like a very loud vacuum cleaner). Our recommendation is to start the Baby Shusher at a volume loud enough to catch baby’s attention during a cry spell and engage baby’s calming reflex, and then turn the volume down on the rhythmic shush to match baby’s calming state.
When should I start using the Baby Shusher?
We recommend using the Baby Shusher from the day baby is born, that way it becomes a habitual way for baby to engage the calming reflex. Baby will begin to recognize the rhythmic shush immediately and calm down even quicker over time.
