What is White Noise?
Typically, we equate noise with disruption. (One partner’s snoring, for example, is a big reason why some couples choose to sleep apart.) In the case of white noise, though, it’s just the opposite: White noise can not only help you fall asleep, it can also help you stay asleep.
White noise is a signal or sound with a flat frequency spectrum.
White noise (slang), a meaningless or distracting commotion or chatter.
That consistency creates a masking effect, blocking out the sudden changes in noise—like, for instance, the aforementioned snoring, or the dog barking, or a truck rumbling down the street—that can cause you to wake up during the night.
And even if you are awakened, the soothing quality of white noise can make it easier for you to fall back asleep.
The Benefit in White Noise:
It’s not just adults who can benefit from white noise in the bedroom. A 1990 study published in the Archives of Disease in Childhood found that white noise could be helpful for getting babies to sleep too. Eighty percent of the 40 newborns studied were able to fall asleep after five minutes of hearing white noise. Some white noise machines even feature a heartbeat setting that comforts the newborn by sounding like mom.
What is White Noise Machine?
A white noise machine is a mechanical device used primarily to help people sleep. They produce a monotonous 'white noise' sound similar to television static. Many people find this sound calming, allowing them to fall and stay asleep longer.
If you’re tempted to put a sound machine in a child’s room, pay special attention to decibel level. When the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2014 tested more than a dozen white noise fans designed for infants, it found that they all exceeded the recommended noise limit of 50 decibels. For that reason, the AAP suggests placing a white noise generator at least seven feet away from a baby’s crib and keeping the volume on a low setting.
