Sounds can affect our sleep. Babies are also sensitive to surrounding sounds, though newborns are used to hearing mum’s heartbeat, or other muffed sounds of the environment during the pregnancy.
myHummy makes a teddy bear which can generate various sounds, like white noise or amniotic fluid with a heartbeat, which ought to help the newborn fall asleep, or a baby to sleep better while masking other noises. Additionally, a ‘beating heart’, which produces the sound, is removable and you can take anywhere with you in a travel pouch. You can turn on all sound functions with only one button, and a Bluetooth version allows controlling them via an app. The teddy bear comes in various colours and sizes and is washable.
