How to distinguish the colors of noise?

Sleep is one of the topics most often discussed among parents. No wonder – it is one of the most important needs of every human being. When the child comes into the world, everything turns upside down, with sleep and its regularity as a crucial issue. Not only the parent’s dream is important, but also the child’s. When the baby begins to have trouble falling asleep, we look for the best solution. hat’s when terms like “white noise”, “pink noise” and “brown noise” (also called red) come on the road. How to distinguish such noise? Why are there devices that emit these kinds of noise? Read on!

White noise – the most popular among parents. The definition says that this type of noise is the most steady and static. We would compare it to the noise of a non-tuned television or the sound of a hair dryer. Probably everyone knows these kind of sounds?

Pink noise – Technically pink noise differs from white noise by decibels. However, looking at the sensations we can observe ourselves, using only our own ear, we can say that pink noise is very similar to white noise. Some researches show, however, that white noise will work when your little one falls asleep, and pink noise will support a good night’s sleep. Pink noise includes the sound of calm ocean waves or the sound of summer rain.

Brown noise, or actually red or Brown’s noise. It is the deepest sound of the above. What does this say in practice? We can call such a sound, e.g. thunder sound, a waterfall or some sounds of animals. Brown noise is likely to be the most relaxing factor.

Do I have to buy a device with the noise function or can I use the sounds available “at home”? Will the noise help my baby fall asleep? Is white noise harmful?

These are the most common questions you are looking for answers to. Of course, as we mentioned above, the noise available in humming devices corresponds to specific sounds available in our everyday life, so theoretically you do not need to buy an additional device. But look at it from a different angle. If your child actually falls asleep with the colorful noise (here is the answer to the question whether every child falls asleep with the noise – of course, not every one), it is better to have a safe product nearby, tested for work with the child and focused on long-term operation. When using a device specialized in noise, you don’t have to leave your phone with Internet noise turned on and worry about the sound being interrupted by loud ads or a call from a friend. Leaving the hair dryer with your child on is also not a safe idea.

Is white noise harmful? This is the most controversial question. There is a lot of information among the parents that no one has confirmed or denied. Our answer is this: remember that each device should be used in moderation and wisely. Additionally, remember about 3 points:

  • humming devices should not be left near the baby’s head. It’s best to just put them on the shelf next to you,
  • use the timer available in humming devices or turn off the noise yourself when the child falls asleep,
  • do not overdo it with volume.

Which type of noise color is best for a baby?

Each child is different, and everyone will like a different type of noise, so when deciding to buy a noise-emitting device, it is best to choose one that has them all.
