REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Finally Getting Some Shut Eye with Sound & Sleep Machine


Sound+Sleep

I'm the person who lies in bed thinking about everything that happened during the day as well as other random worries/thoughts.  I cannot fall asleep quickly which is a shame because I end up hearing Hubs' snores which keeps me awake even longer!  I am constantly tired during the day at work and it has taken a toll on me.  I talk to my mother on most days while driving to work and everyday the same question: "Are you mad or something?" and my answer: "No, I'm just tired". 

I was so excited to receive the Sound+Sleep sleep therapy system for review.  It works straight out of the box - you just need to plug it in and turn it on.  


(yes that is my Hello Kitty clock)

How sleek is the design?  The size is just perfect!  There are 10 naturally recorded high-definition SoundStories = people trek through nature to get these authentic sounds! (minus White Noise and Meditation)   The ten sounds are: waterfall, fireplace, ocean, meadow, train, city, rainfall, brook, mediation, and white noise.  My favorites are ocean and brook.  You can hear birds chirp! 

There is a neat feature - the Adaptive Mode which adds sounds to the SoundStory and automatically adjusts the volume to the background noise by adding sounds if it is loud and then readjusting to normal when the loud noises fade.  Very cool eh?  I also think the ability to have the Sound+Sleep on a timer is fantastic - I used the 30 minutes and it was perfect because I was asleep before it turned off!  A HUGE improvement in my falling asleep struggles.  There is a button which turns off the lights - BONUS!  I've actually kept it on all night recently :)   

Kenzie loves this system as well.  She thinks she is changing the "music" by turning the knob.  I love the soothing sounds of this system compared to the baby white noise machine we currently have in her room.
  

One Winner will receive a Sound+Sleep Sleep Therapy System!  If you are a parent or just a thinker in bed you will most definitely appreciate this fabulous system.
