Dohm Sound Machine – Sleep Bundle for Serious Sleep

Need a great gift idea for that poor exhausted new mother or father? I have an idea that might help!

I was sent a Dohmie 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.

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

We also use 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 got 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.

Dohmie Serious Sleep Baby Bundle

The Dohm sound machine was literally in my shopping cart when I got an email to try out the Dohmie Serious Sleep Baby Bundle. Yay! So, I was eager to try it.

The bundle includes:

  • the Dohm Sound Machine
  • a Sleep 101 guide
  • an original “Buddy the Bee” storybook

I have now used it in several places.

In the baby’s room

I have used it for baby (who sleeps in my room) and it does seem to help block out the noise for her. A big plus since I like my sleep.

In toddler’s room

I ordered another one to put in my girls bedroom.  I will say that it is only as loud as the fan. It is not as loud as a window a/c, so she can still hear the boys making noise downstairs, though maybe not quite as much because she hasn’t been in our room crying for a while. I was honestly a little disappointed that it wasn’t louder.

In the boys room

And there is another in my boys room.  My 11 year old has stolen it 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 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 it just keeps running, it isn’t a playback loop that will shut of eventually.  And 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.

    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. :-)
    Thanks!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
