What age is best suited for the Baby Shusher and how do I introduce the Baby Shusher to my older baby?
The Baby Shusher is most effective from 0-6 months but we have also had success up to 2 years of age, depending on the toddler. The earlier the Baby Shusher is introduced the more likelihood of success. It is not recommended for an older baby to have the Baby Shusher up as loud as their cries. The Shusher should initially be introduced with other regular bedtime routines until baby becomes familiar with the rhythmic shush.
For how long can I use the Baby Shusher with my baby?
We’ve seen the Baby Shusher be effective all the way up to 18 months old, however the optimum is from birth to 12 months.
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).
How close in proximity should I put the Baby Shusher to my baby?
It is important that the 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 Shusher’s rhythmic shush can easily get lost if simply set on the dresser across the room from cot.
What is the difference between the Baby Shusher and White Noise?
The first goal of the Shusher is to stop your baby from crying and not to simply provide soothing background noise such white noise. 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 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.
The shusher has a 30 min or 15 minute timer and is not intended to run constantly through your baby’s sleeping period, however white noise can be used alongside the Shusher to provide the perfect sleeping environment.
