The biggest challenge that new parents face is helping their little ones fall asleep.

During this time only thing that never failed to surprise me was white noise. White noise is a combination of all the different frequencies of sounds with an equal intensity. It’s a unique kind of sound signal which is capable of overpowering any kind of background sound.
