Dream Land Isn’t Far Away With Dohmie {The Official Sound Conditioner of the National Sleep Foundation}

I participated in a campaign on behalf of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network for Marpac. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating.  Regardless all opinions expressed are 100% honest and my own.

I’ve finally come to grips with the fact that my little Miss Willow Jean will not sleep through the night until she is completely weaned from breastfeeding.  This isn’t anything new for me as both Alleigh and Kaelyn were the same way, but the big difference was that I weaned them at 12 and 13 months old.  I made the choice to continue nursing Willow past her first birthday and am fairly certain I will let her self wean, but at 17 months old she has still been waking up at least once a night, if not more, to comfort nurse.  I’ll be honest and say that I am at my wits end and I really could desperately use a full night’s sleep.  I needed something that would encourage her to at least sleep for longer stretches so that I could get some serious sleep too.  I found my answer with the Marpac Dohmie.

The concept of the Dohmie is quite simple – turn it on and tune out the world.  The lightweight portable dome shaped contraption is able to accomplish this by creating a natural white noise.  This white noise is seamless and continuous because it uses electromechanical technology to create the natural sound of rushing air.  For a while we had been using a stuffed animal with a heart beat sound in an attempt to get Willow to sleep for longer stretches, but as soon as it would shut off she would wake up.  I love that the Dohmie does not automatically shut off and since it doesn’t work on a digital loop there are no awkward pauses.  To me it sounds like a powerful ceiling fan running without freezing to death, hehe.  Dustin would be very pleased if we got a second Dohmie for our bedroom so that I could shut the fan off in the winter months…  I need that white noise!

The Dohmie features two speeds, but the tone and volume can be further customized with a simple twist which makes the openings larger.  The slanted openings on the side of the Dohmie as well as the round openings on the top can be adjusted separately to create a perfect personal sound environment.

The bright white finish, raised silver medallion, and gray on/off switch give the Dohmie an attractive appearance that looks nice sitting out in the nursery.

But the most important part is that it works!  Willow’s nursery doesn’t have a door on it, but is right off the living room and so whenever we would lay her down for the night the television would need to be turned down super low as to not wake her, but now with the Dohmie we can actually hear our television.  Our neighbors have dogs that bark whenever a car drives by and I no longer have to worry about Willow waking from one of their episodes.  She also will sleep right through a thunder storm.  It’s blissful!  I will be totally honest and say that she still does not sleep through the night, but she definitely sleeps for much longer stretches.  Most nights she is now waking up one time, but not until nearly 5:30am when I just bring her to bed with me.

If you have a little one that is struggling with falling asleep or staying asleep I urge you to give the Dohmie a try.  The baby bundle includes the Dohm-NSF sound conditioner by Marpac (the Official Sound Conditioner of the National Sleep Foundation), a “Sleep 101″ guide from the NSF and an original “Buddy the Bee” storybook, to help you and your baby “find your ZZZZs” with a soothing bedtime tale and routine.  Plus a charitable contribution is made for every Dohmie bundle sold.  It’s time for some serious sleep with Dohmie.

  1. We have the exact same problem with our daughter’s room being close to the living room (and my son is often way louder than the TV ever is!) The Dohmie completely fixed the problem for us! Of course she still wakes up on occasion, but it’s not anywhere near as bad as it was. That little machine really works!

  2. Amanda says:

    Oh this would fix our problem with Shelby!! I need one!

  3. Melissa says:

    Oh, I love these sweet pictures! We have one and I swear by it! It used to be in our room but now it’s in the twins room and they sleep so well. I need to get a second one too for our room!

  4. Angela McKinney says:

    This has to be the best thing I have seen in a long time. We have a hard time getting our daughter to sleep in her room but this might do the trick!

  5. kristin says:

    It’s true, it really does work so well. You wrote a great review and Willow is growing up too fast!

    We need another one of these for our room!

  6. Rachel N says:

    We use a little fan in my daughters room for white noise but this sounds like a better solution.

  7. Keara B. says:

    This just went on my “must-have” list before our next baby gets here! I had a cheapie sound machine that I used with my daughter, but it broke after about 6 months. Right now, we have a box fan sitting in the corner of her room for white noise, and I hate it. Always seems to make the room colder. Now I want a Dohmie. :)

  8. Emily says:

    I love ours!! I want another for our room!!

  9. Laurie P says:

    I’m now really curious about the Dohmie. Baby sleeps very well at night, but I always have to have a fan on for myself. All. Year. Round. Hubby hates that.

  10. Teresa Honores says:

    OMG this is awesome! I also have babies that I breastfed passed one year and really that means us mamas dont get a good night sleep so if this worked i am getting one for my baby due in the spring!

  11. joanna garcia says:

    I am going to be needing this for the girls this would be great!

    White noise is the #1 piece of advice I give to new moms
