When Baby Simply Won't Sleep...
We understand that one of the most frustrating things you, as a parent, can experience is when your baby simply won't go to sleep. Or, when they go to sleep, only to wake several times during the night.
We looked at the research into what best helps to calm fussy babies, in order to develop a resource for parents that enables them to help their children get to sleep. The result is The Heartbeat CD.
Nature's Most Soothing Sound
What my wife and I found in the research was that sound of the human heartbeat may just be nature's most soothing sound. Its
gentle rhythm is the first thing a baby hears in the womb and it's why parents have been holding their babies close to their
chests since before recorded history. This is illustrated by Yale M.D. experts who say:
What a fetus hears most, therefore, are sounds from the mother's body: heartbeat, stomach noises, voice. 1
Proven in Clinical Studies
Numerous studies have shown the benefits experienced by babies when listening to the recorded sound of the human heartbeat. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire say:
[T]his has been replicated in a number of studies ... they [babies] stop thrashing, they go into a restful awake or asleep state, and their oxygen saturation actually goes up right before your eyes. ... We have a system where we have a CD player for every baby. ... We like to start out with something rather simple, perhaps similar to what the babies have been hearing in the womb... 2
The ability of the heartbeat sound to calm fussy babies is why the Journal of the American Medical Association says:
[T]his explains the popularity of toys for cribs that mimic mothers' sounds. 3
No Added Music
Our Heartbeat CD contains six tracks of nothing but the calming and gentle human heartbeat. Each track is approximately
10 minutes long, for a total of one hour. Since babies are different, we encourage you to experiment to see if any one
track works better than the others. Most CD players can be set to automatically repeat a single track for as long as
necessary, so once you find the track that works best, you can set that to loop for as long as necessary.
While we certainly enjoy music, and agree that music may indeed be an aid when trying to get a baby to sleep, we decided to look at the studies and produce a CD with nothing but the heartbeat sounds that the baby would hear in the womb. We invite parents to evaluate our Heartbeat CD against those with added music and decide for themselves which one works better for their baby.
