Baby Shusher – the revolutionary device for settling baby once and for all


Can you hear that? It is the sweet sound of silence – at least it is where I’m sitting. As envious as you may be, hear me when I say it was a hard fought battle. Up until about five minutes ago, I spent 45 minutes up and down like a yo-yo trying to coerce my four-month-old little man into some much needed sleep. If only I had the Baby Shusher. 

The Baby Shusher is designed to quickly soothe any unsettled baby. Inspired by Dr Karp’s book, Happiest Baby on the Block, this device incorporates the time-tested parenting technique of shushing, the fourth ‘S’ of the acclaimed “Five S’s” program.


Simulating the womb environment by emitting loud, rhythmic shushing noises, the Baby Shusher is similar in theory to a white noise machine but is intended to be used during the settling period, not to run constantly during your baby’s sleep period. The Baby Shusher allows you to set your time preference with a 15 or 30 minute timer and there is a built-in volume control so you can cater it specifically to your child’s needs on the day.

Celebrities have even taken notice of this sleep miracle with Kim Kardashian and Princess Kate swearing by the Baby Shusher when it comes to soothing their little ones.

You can find out more about the Baby Shusher and purchase it at Baby Shusher Australia for $56. They also have some fantastic packages available that include swaddlers and comforters. You can find the Baby Shusher in good baby stores around the country.
