Dohm Sound Machine – The Best Sound Machine For Serious Sleep Benefits

Need a great gift idea for that poor exhausted new mother or father?  Or do you just need a deeper, more restful sleep?  This is the best sound machine I have come across.   We can’t sleep without ours.

A dear friend of mine gifted us a Dohm sleep machine bundle to help my little one sleep. How does it work? Well, let me first tell you a little background information.

I, myself, grew up using a fan as white noise to help me sleep. I never understood why we used fans when we were little, but now as a parent, I get it. You don’t want ANY noise waking up a sleeping baby or napping toddler.

We began using fans in our kids rooms pretty early on. The only problem with fans is that they can make the room cold.  Our kids rooms are upstairs where there is no heating system (we use space heaters, we don’t let them freeze).

We also use a window a/c up there in the kids rooms which are a very loud kind of white noise.  Since it’s cold, we have turned them off, but my kids were used to the loud white noise and the fan just wasn’t cutting it. My 3 year old would constantly come into our room crying because she thought something was coming upstairs to get her.  But, it was only my two older sons banging around downstairs.

Dohm Sound Machine

The Dohm sound machine by Marpac (click here to purchase at the best price) was literally in my shopping cart when I got it as a gift.  Wahoo!

The bundle includes:

I have now used it in several places and we literally feel like we do not get the most restful sleep without it turned on.

Why is it the best sound machine?

It’s in the baby’s room (Our Room)

I have used it for baby (who sleeps in our room) and it does help block out the noise for her which helps her sleep for much longer periods. This is a big plus since I like my sleep.  However, it also helps my husband and I fall asleep faster and we feel much more rested.    I have naturally have a  busy brain.   I noticed that with the sound machine on, my mind doesn’t race as much and I get lulled to sleep much quicker.

In the toddler’s room

I ordered another one to put in my girls bedroom.  It has worked so well that I ordered one for each room that someone sleeps in!

In the boys room

And there is another in my boys room.  My 11 year old decided he really needed one and sleeps with it right by his pillow.

In the living room

The white noise is definitely needed in the living room. Baby likes to sleep on me as I rock in my chair and with four other kids, she often gets woke up.  The white noise helps to drown out some of the noise they make.

Overall, I am so very pleased with it.  I liked it enough to buy more.  It is a little smaller than I thought, judging by the pictures, but I like the small size.  It makes it easy to carry to different rooms if I need to for baby to sleep.

I also like that the Dohm Sound Machine just keeps running. It isn’t a playback loop that will shut off eventually.  Also, it isn’t a fan that makes the room cold and changes sound sometimes or starts clicking or rattling. ( I hate that!)

 I would definitely recommend it to any parent of a small child or any child that needs a little extra white noise to get and stay asleep.  It’s is the ultimate sound machine in our book!

Visit here for more information about the Dohm Sound Machine.  Your children will be sleeping in no time with this awesome sleep machine.   While your littles are sleeping, keep an eye on them with a video baby monitor so you can get your chores done.  We have a great guide to help you make your decision easier.

Hi Jennifer! Thanks for reviewing our Dohm! As I mom, I know the sound level on the Dohm can fall short for some of our sleeping needs. Marpac has several other high-quality products that can help moms who need more sound. I personally use the Zohne in our nursery. My baby girl sleeps through the matchbox cars and train building complements of big brother. 🙂

    I will have to look into the zohne, thanks for the tip!

I love that it is small and easy to move around to different rooms as needed. That also makes it easy to pack on trips! Traveling with small kids is hard enough without adding extra sleeplessness into it.

Mama to 5 BLessings - November 25, 2013

what a great idea, I so need to get one of these for my boys room maybe it will drown out any other noises when their other siblings wake up and they will not get up as early!

This sounds awesome. I could definitely use it.

We have always used an air purifier as a sound machine for my kids since they were born but they vibrate and frequently need to be cleaned. I’ve always wondered about a sound machine. They still both have the air purifiers in the their rooms because the layout of our house makes it necessary for them to fall asleep.

I love these sound machines! We have one in each of our bedrooms and it helps us and the kids rest easy at night. In fact, one of these machines was the trick to getting my 5 month old to finally sleep through the night. I gift these to all new or expecting mothers, and it’s seriously the best ever!

Heather M - November 25, 2013

I need a sound machine for me! Thanks for your review. 🙂

Alecia @ Chicken Scratch NY - November 25, 2013

Looks like something to put on the babies Christmas list this year!

Vonnie - November 25, 2013

This sounds like a perfect gift for my daughter who’s expecting her 1st child in January. When my babies were little, we always had quite music turned on where they were sleeping.

Chrishelle - November 25, 2013

The Dohm sounds like a great product for new parents. I like sleeping to white noise, very relaxing. I will forward this to all my friends who are new parents.

Jennifer B - November 25, 2013

We could really use one of these to help my toddler sleep better!

Amy Desrosiers - November 25, 2013

At first I thought this was just for babes, but now I see big kids can use it too! Thanks!

Ave - November 25, 2013

I had no idea this kind of product was available. Have to check it out for my daughter. Hope it helps to sleep better.

Amber Edwards - November 25, 2013

We love sound machines! The white noise is so nice on those nights that we just can’t sleep. And it works wonders for the little kids!

Shanna - November 25, 2013

My daughter is such a light sleeper. This would help so much!

Pam - November 25, 2013

I could have used one of these so badly when my daughter was a baby. She never slept.

Shannah @ Just Us Four - November 25, 2013

This sounds like an awesome option for light sleepers!

Dawn - November 25, 2013

This looks like something I could use for myself!

Dawn Lopez - November 25, 2013

This sounds like a must have product for parents, I am going to share with my cousin. She is expecting her first 😉 So exciting!

kathy balman - November 25, 2013

so it really works? That is too cool! my kids both always fell asleep to !music as babies!

Milena - November 25, 2013

I just read a post about this elsewhere. Sounds so good. I will have to pass this along- I would have loved this when my little guy couldn’t sleep.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell - November 25, 2013

I can’t believe how many ways you’ve found to use it. It really does say a lot that you’ve ordered more!

Laurie - Steals and Deals for Kids - November 25, 2013

I sleep with a sound machine (rain) and think this is a great idea for babies and kids! Thanks for sharing…my daughter is having a baby next month! May have to look into this!

Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas - November 25, 2013

We have one too and I can’t believe how much of a difference that one little machine can make. So much better than a radio or something so intrusive.

brett - November 25, 2013

we had one of these. it was a lifesaver. i think i need one for my hubby again now!!

Mariana - November 25, 2013

My youngest daughter would never sleep through all the noise her big sister would make, so we also had to buy a white noise machine. It works wonders!

Mommy2Jam - November 26, 2013

I want one of these for my toddlers room. I could use a good nights sleep!

Mommy2jam - November 26, 2013

I need one for my house, my toddler could benefit from it causing the whole house to sleep more soundly

Janeane Davis - November 26, 2013

When our children were young we trained them to go to sleep under any noise conditions, but I have lots of friends who trained their children to sleep in a quiet house who would love this product! It sounds like a good thing to have.

Danielle @ We Have It All - November 26, 2013

Oh glad I saw this, we need another sound machine, ours died.

Trice - November 26, 2013

I have seen these but I never knew what it was. Thanks so much for a great post I figured it was an air purifier.

katherine - November 26, 2013

We sleep with a lot of white noise in our house. It’s the only way my husband can sleep!

Lisa - November 26, 2013

I could have used this when my kids were little!

Melanie a/k/a CrazyMom - November 26, 2013

What a great review; I’ve seen these before but never knew if they really would work… Need to check this out for my daughter, maybe that will keep her sleeping, too.
