I’ve been tiptoeing around the house, watching football on volume setting mute and warning the dogs on pain of death not to bark in case we wake up my four-week-old son.
So you can imagine my surprise when, as I vacuumed the house, I returned to find my baby fast sleep.
It’s the same story with the hairdryer too. Go figure!
Well, it seems it’s white noise they love.
It reminds them of being safe and warm in the womb.
So I’ve now downloaded an app on my iPhone called ‘White Noise’. You name it, it has it and boy does it work!
There’s even a sound to relax dads. It’s the sound of lager being poured into a pint glass.
