This is one of those things I wish I had when Gracie was born. Now, she’s 2 years old and we finally found the perfect nighttime solution- the Hatch Baby Rest! Since birth, we’ve done white noise for Gracie. We never had a white noise machine, but instead used my iPhone with a white noise app on it. This was fine when Gracie slept in the same room as us, but when she moved to her own room we were stuck. She loves sleeping with white noise, but I’m not about to leave my phone in her room all night LOL.
The Hatch Baby Rest is perfect. First of all it’s super modern looking – which is exactly our style. But what I love most about it is the insane amount of features. Obviously my favorite feature is the sound machine- because that solved our nighttime problem. The Rest has TONS of different sounds including seashore – Gracie’s favorite. It also has 3 different music sounds which are SO fun to put on a low volume while we read stories. Gracie loves this.
Not only does it function as a sound machine, but also a night light! There are lots of different colors to choose from (you can actually choose any color from the color wheel). And you can adjust the brightness, too! Gracie always wants to choose her color before bed, it’s so cute. She picks a few colors before eventually choosing rainbow (it cycles through all the colors). I swear this helps her sleep. She gets so relaxed watching the lights change colors – and I slowly lower the brightness until it’s off.
Which reminds me of the most important feature! Did you know you can control EVERYTHING from your phone??? NO more waking up baby to adjust their sound machine. I can stand outside her door and turn down the brightness or sound from my phone. It’s the best.
The Hatch Baby Rest also has some programs you can set up. You can program an OK-to-wake time. Which basically turns the Rest on when it’s okay for your child to get up + leave the room. I’ve heard INCREDIBLE things about this type of program. I haven’t tried this with Gracie yet.
We use our Hatch Baby Rest every night + every nap! It’s the best. I’m also planning on getting another one for when the new baby comes because this is the PERFECT breastfeeding nightlight. You also don’t have to use your phone to turn it off, you can hold the silver ring and it’ll turn off. There are also buttons on the bottom!
