Frequently asked questions
Every myHummy emits 5 types of white noise which resemble: a hairdryer, vacuum cleaner,
ocean waves, rainfall, and amniotic fluid with heartbeat.
myHummy plays for 60 minutes and then gradually fades out. After that, the models featuring the
Sleep Sensor enter a stand-by mode in which the sound comes on again if the baby starts to stir or
if there is an increase in the background noise. The sound plays for another 60 minutes and this
cycle is repeated for 12 hours. The Sleep Sensor models can also play non-stop for up to 12 hours.
Every myHummy can be washed in a washing machine after removing the sound unit from
the zip pocket. myHummy is made of certified materials suitable from birth.
You can try playing YouTube videos of white noise first to see if your little one is receptive
to the sounds. Try a few different videos and volumes, for many babies white noise is most effective
when played quite loud, up to 50 decibels – this is the maximum volume recommended by many pediatricians.
You can also try playing the sound continuously through the night as some babies get startled when
the white noise stops – myHummy can play continuously through the night! If you find that your
little one is a lover of white noise, then myHummy is a great choice for you!
The age recommendation for myHummy is 0-3 years and we’ve received a lot of positive feedback
from parents of older babies. It is never too late to try white noise. In fact, people of all
ages use it as a sleep aid. White noise has a lulling effect but also masks other sounds, so babies
(and older children as well as adults) are less likely to wake up as a result of noise.
You may need to try different sounds and volumes, but it’s definitely worth a go!
