Womb Sounds CD

womb_sounds_cd.jpgA friend went to help her band member-marrying, tour-missing, C-sectioned, bed-ridden over-taxed friend with her new kid while the dad was on tour. The first thing she did when she got there: turn off this CD of Super-Soothing Womb Sounds.

Some people on Amazon swear by it, sure, but apparently it's so annoying, it's like the last refuge of the colic- and reflux-damned. The CD consists of three tracks, a rapid "attention-getting" beat, a moderating second act, and a whopping 40-minute meditative womb track, any of which "can be played individually or repeated for hours to keep your baby settled into a deep level of relaxation." Never mind that one customer compares the CD to the background music from the Psycho shower scene.

Buy Super Soothing Womb Sounds--if you dare--for $12.99 at


For the first six weeks of her life, our baby didn't sleep longer than 20 minutes at a stretch - mostly during the day - and, on the advice of a coworker, we briefly considered buying this CD. (Actually, she recommended a teddy bear that plays the same annoying whooshing noises.) But I'm glad we didn't resort to this foolishness. The fewer sleep props, the better. Now our daughter is five months old and sleeps like a, uh, baby.

we are using a program called atmosphere deluxe, fantastic sound generator, way better i think than these CDs. they have a free version to download, just search for it.
