If you are a light sleeper like me, then you probably understand how annoying even the smallest sound can be when you are trying to get some sleep.
This only gets worse if you have noisy neighbors who do not understand how much sleep is important.
I first came across a white noise machine when I was shopping for my baby’s nursery. The walls of the house that I was living in at the time were so thin and even the smallest sounds got to the nursery and woke him up.
When I got a white noise machine, I had a solution for a couple of weeks before the thing broke down and stopped working altogether. I was frustrated because I had spent quite a considerable amount of money on the machine.
I was not too quick to replace the white noise machine. However, after a few frustrated weeks of having to wake up in the middle of the night to the baby’s wailing, it was clear that I needed a solution.
When a friend suggested a white noise fan, I was a bit skeptical. I was not sure how the fans would work in the same way as the machine. I gave it a try though, seeing as it was a bit cheaper than the white noise machines.
I absolutely loved it! I ended up using white noise fans for quite some time and still do, even to date. If you are not sure whether or not a white noise fan will work for you, this article should help you make an informed decision.
Here’s what I have learned about white noise fans over the years.
