Do you, your children or most importantly perhaps, your baby have difficulty sleeping? I may have the solution for you. Today I am going to review the AuCuTee S5 Sleep Therapy White Noise Machine which I was recently sent to sample. I also have a discount code for AuCuTee should you decide you wish to purchase one yourself. Not only is it brilliant for helping to sleep, but there are a range of other uses for this product. So whether you suffer from insomnia and are looking for a solution or you like to relax with methods such as yoga, massage or meditation, a sound system could be ideal for you. Read on to see how this sound machine can be used and my review.
What is a white noise machine?
A white noise machine is a device that has pre-set white noise and soothing sounds programmed into it. It has sounds such as fire crackling, rainfall, waves and birds chirping. They are designed to mask out any other sound distractions that could be preventing you or a child from sleeping, or even to drown out sounds that may wake you up. If you have trouble getting to sleep then a white noise machine can help to block out distractions and even racing thoughts through the mind as you begin to concentrate and listen only to the white noise instead. It’s aim is to promote healthy sleep and a restful night, but it does have some other uses too.
What can a white noise machine be used for?
- Difficulty sleeping in adults
- Soothing children back to sleep
- Helping baby to sleep soundly
- Practising yoga
- Relaxing and meditating
- Background music and noise during a massage
- To mask symptoms of tinnitus
AuCuTee S5 Sleep Therapy White Noise Machine Review
The product I was sent comes well packaged in a sturdy white modern box. I wasn’t sure what to expect at all as I’ve never had a white noise machine before, but I thought the presentation was very good. I didn’t know if it would be cheap and tacky, but I felt it was presented well and immediately looked like a high quality product.
I chose the white version as it fits with our white walls and décor well. In the bedroom we have white bedside tables and drawers so it will blend in perfectly. There is a dark grey version also if you prefer a darker colourway.
The machine itself is very light to handle and basic to use. It’s not complicated at all. It comes with instructions, but I think it’s self-explanatory. There are 20 pre-set sounds to choose from and there’s also a timer of 30, 60 or 90 minutes to choose from. This is ideal if you want to set it for a period of time to fall asleep to.
I will probably try it to sleep to when I have issues falling asleep, usually because my mind is too busy and any little sound really irritates me and prevents me from drifting off, but I really wanted to use this for relaxation and meditation purposes. I do yoga regularly and it makes the whole experience calmer and more relaxing with this machine. The relaxing bird chirping noise or even lullabies playing softly in the background alter the experience and allow my mind to drift off elsewhere totally forgetting about my lists of things to do and busy work life.
Destress with a white noise machine
Meditation is something quite new to me and I want to learn more about it and practice it regularly. I often get stressed with the hectic work-life balance of being a full time freelancer working up to 50 hours a week whilst also running a busy household with two children aged three and six. Life is often chaotic and nonstop, so it’s important to take a moment to clear the mind, relax and breathe every now and then. If only for five minutes a day it’s something I want to make a habit and part of my daily routine.
I tried this yesterday with this white noise machine and really enjoyed it. I tried the chirping noises and also fire crackling which is probably my favourite sound. It just needs to be quite quiet as it’s too distracting if it’s played too loud. I lay on my yoga mat spread out with palms upturned and closed my eyes for ten minutes listening to the sounds. It was so relaxing and I could have lay there for a lot longer if I didn’t have so much work to do! It’s a start though and it made me feel calmer, but revitalised for the day ahead.
Many busy parents turn to alcohol for stress relief which is terrible for health, costly and poisoning the body. I think it’s much better to find healthy ways of destressing and simply switching off, closing your eyes and listening to soothing sounds for a moment each day could be really beneficial to most of us.
Overall I am impressed with the machine and I wish I knew about these when my children were babies! We often put Reuben in the kitchen to sleep in his bouncer as the noise of the dishwasher and washing machines sent him to sleep! This machine would be the perfect addition to a nursery to soothe a baby and as it’s portable it can be taken on holiday or moved with ease from room to room. My six year old still sometimes wakes up in the evening and uses a musical teddy to go back to sleep, so I will share this with her also as another way for her to drift back off.
I’m impressed they have so many uses and are quite a versatile object. I will be able to use it for relaxation techniques and my children will use it as a comforter in the middle of the night.
