Baby Shusher

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the Baby Shusher?
The revolutionary Baby Shusher quickly soothes any fussy baby. Developed from the parenting technique in the “Happiest Baby on the Block” book, the Baby Shusher incorporates the fourth ‘S’ of the “Five S’ – shushing. With loud, rhythmic shushing noises, the Baby Shusher draws on ancient, time-tested practices. Plus, the Baby Shusher allows you to set your timing preference with either a 15-minute option or a 30-minute option and it has built-in volume control so that it’s louder than baby’s cries, which is proven to help calm babies. The Baby Shusher is for newborns and up.
2. What age is best suited for the Baby Shusher?
The Baby Shusher is most effective all the way up to 15 months old; however,we have also had success up to 2 years of age, depending on the toddler. The earlier the Baby Shusher is introduced the more likelihood of success.
3. What is the difference between the Baby Shusher and White Noise?
The first goal of the Baby Shusher is to stop your baby from crying and not to simply provide soothing background noise such white noise. Remember, your baby is used to constantly hearing noises in utero at volumes up to 95 dBs (which is like a very loud vacuum cleaner). Our recommendation is to start the Baby Shusher at a volume loud enough to catch baby’s attention during a cry spell and engage baby’s calming reflex, and then turn the volume down on the rhythmic shush to match baby’s calming state. The shusher has a 30min or 15 minute timer and is not intended to run constantly through your baby’s sleeping period, however white noise can be used alongside the Baby Shusher to provide the perfect sleeping environment.
4. When do I use the Baby Shusher?
The Baby Shusher is intended to be used when baby has been well fed, winded and has a clean nappy but is still in a crying spell.
5. How close in proximity should I put the Baby Shusher to my baby?
It is important that the Baby Shusher is within two feet of baby’s hearing radius. This will ensure that baby hears the rhythmic shush above their own cry and engages the natural calming reflex. The Baby Shusher’s rhythmic shush can easily get lost if simply set on the dresser across the room from crib.
6. Can the loud volume level hurt my Baby's ears?
Remember, your baby is used to constantly hearing noises in utero at volumes up to 95 dBs (which is like a very loud vacuum cleaner). Our recommendation is to start the Baby Shusher at a volume loud enough to catch baby’s attention during a cry spell and engage baby’s calming reflex, and then turn the volume down on the rhythmic shush to match baby’s calming state.
7. Where should the speaker be pointed?
The direction of the rhythmic shush sound is VERY important. In order for baby to hear and engage with the rhythmic shush, the sound waves should be traveling TOWARD baby’s ears (and not away). This means that speaker on the bottom of your Baby Shusher should be pointed toward your baby (whether in crib, in car seat, in stroller, or while you are holding baby).
8. Should I use the Baby Shusher along with other soothing techniques?
YES. We highly recommend using the Baby Shusher along with other soothing techniques such as swaddling, swinging and sucking. Although we have seen the Baby Shusher work on its own thousands of times, it would be foolish to not bring all options to the table at once when trying to calm your crying baby.
9. What are the most common ways and places to use the Baby Shusher?
Some of the most common places to use the Baby Shusher are while holding baby, when putting baby in the cot for sleep time, naps, or at night, in the car seat while driving, in the swing, and in the stroller with baby. We’ve even seen parents use the Baby Shusher as a preventive measure (starting the Baby Shusher before baby starts crying) to give baby the best possible chance of remaining calm and at peace. There are literally no limitations (except maybe in the swimming pool!).
10. When should I start using the Baby Shusher?
We recommend using the Baby Shusher from the day baby is born, that way it becomes a habitual way for baby to engage the calming reflex. Baby will begin to recognize the rhythmic shush immediately and calm down even quicker over time.
11. How long does the Baby Shusher take to work?
There is really not an easy way to answer this question. We’ve seen the rhythmic shush work within seconds on baby (see the video on the home page). We’ve also seen the Baby Shusher take up to ten minutes before baby finally embraces the rhythmic shush and engages baby’s calming reflex. Every baby and situation is different and unique.
12. For how long can I use the Baby Shusher with my baby?

We’ve seen the Baby Shusher be effective all the way up to 18 months old, however the optimum is from birth to 12 months.

13. Help My Baby Shusher has stopped shushing in rhythm.

It’s time to change the batteries in your Baby Shusher. See the U-Tube tutorial if you are unsure. 

14. The top of my Baby Shusher is becoming tight.

Simply release the pressure by unscrewing the top and replacing not as tight. Then you are good to go!

Very exciting news. 🙌🙌👏👏🎁🎁 I have teamed up with Sleepytot New Zealand to give you this fabulous baby shusher. The Baby Shusher is a revolutionary new tool for parents using an ancient but doctor-tested technique to help soothe your fussy baby. The Baby Shusher breaks a baby’s crying spell by engaging his or her natural calming reflex. The rhythmic shush reminds the baby of being inside the womb, where there is a constant inundation of loud sounds from blood flow and other in utero noises (up to 95 dBs, or the sound of a very loud vacuum cleaner). These sounds, which may initially seem harsh, are actually very calming to a baby.
