What is white noise?

White noise is a non-pharmacological method that helps calm babies so they fall asleep better. Although there is no scientific evidence to support it, several medical studies confirm it, and many pediatricians recommend it. White noise is a sound that contains all the powers within itself, and is therefore able to dilute the other sounds produced inside and outside the home. Thanks to white noise, babies can stop concentrating on their own cries and calm down, especially those who are more agitated and need their parents to redouble their tricks to get them to sleep.

The white noise boom

White noise is a harmless way to calm and soothe babies. Just as we perform pre-bedtime routines to relax them, put them to bed with their favorite stuffed animals or sing them all the lullabies and songs we know, white noise is a way to soothe them when, for no apparent reason or because of colic, hunger or other physical problems, they start crying and crying and we can't calm them down.

White noise has been part of our society for many years and is increasingly used by parents. It has a highly beneficial effect on babies' brains and on the serenity of household members. So much so that machines, mobile applications and YouTube videos have even been created to generate these white noises, but what many people don't know is that hair dryer white noise is much quicker, easier to make and homemade!
