No Bluetooth!
Yet another disappointing baby white noise app. It’s nice that it will continue to play in the background when you close the screen unlike the last stupid app I purchased. What makes this app a disappointment is that it will only play through the speakers on your phone, so forget about using it with a Bluetooth speaker in your child’s room like an intelligent person would. What I viewed as common sense, clearly isn’t an option for this app.

This app is a sanity saver
I read Dr. Karp’s book 9 years ago and used his methods with my second child who REFUSED to sleep, and it was the only thing that eventually calmed her to sleep. Nine years ago this app or the Shusher didn’t exist so my husband and I had to use our own breath to constantly shush her (she still gets sleepy when we shush in her ear). Fast forward to now. I have a 7 week old and I looked into getting the Shusher machine because I knew the 4s worked. However, before I spent the $$ on the actual machine I decided to see if there was an app and lo and behold I found this little miracle. For $5 I have turned an iPod I had lying around into my own Shusher machine. Even better, this one will pause and listen to the baby every 3 min to adjust the volume! It also has a longer timer, and since the baby is in our room it acts as a sound machine for my husband and me as well. We are getting the best nights sleep we have ever gotten with a 7 week old! As an added bonus I can connect my phone to my car’s auxiliary port when he’s fussy in his car seat and play the sound over the speakers! Spend the $5. You won’t regret it.

Thankful for this app!
I have the handheld shusher and use it in the car and away from home. I have paid for the app twice now (once on my old phone and again on my new phone) and very grateful for it. My 7 month old has used it from the day we came home from the hospital. It calms here and often soothes her right to sleep. I can’t say enough about how well it works BUT when I get a call or anything else on my phone makes a noise, the shusher stops making the noise and does not continue after the other noise (phone call, text message noise, other app...). I have to close the app completely every time, restart the app and then turn it back on. Imagine the frustration when this happens in the middle of her nap or while I’m trying to get her to sleep! I understand that the sound will stop while the other noise occurs, but once it’s over, I should be able to press start again and hear the shusher. Nope! Have to restart app every time. Please fix this problem. I am an iPhoneX user and also used the app on my LGV20 and had the same problem. Thanks so much!

4 Month Old -Just Buy the App
I have a 4 month old and I really wish I heard of this much sooner. It hasn’t put my baby to sleep like others (yet) BUT it does calm him down when he gets upset. We were out and about and stretched his patience a little too far and on the way home our bug got upset. I put the Shusher on and he instantly stopped crying. That alone is worth the $5 bucks…or however much money it is now. People complain about how the app will stop working if they receive a call or other notification…all you have to do is put your phone or device on ‘do not disturb’. Presto! No more disturbances. Can’t blame an app for your phone settings. Just sayin’. My advice: Just spend the $5 (or whatever it is now). This app is definitely worth it. Remember, all babies are different and just because it was a miracle worker for one baby, doesn’t mean it’ll work for yours. And if your baby could care less, than you’re only out $5 (or whatever it is now). Just try it. Use an old phone or device you have laying around, that way, you don’t have to give up your main phone. Praying for rest and sleep for you and your baby! Happy sleeping!

My baby loves this shusher sound. I was going to purchase the shusher device but read the time is 15 to 30 minutes. My little one uses this as a white noise all night long. I have to keep my phone on a shelf in his room for the entire night. I don’t mind it to much as it allows be to have more peace to myself not looking at my phone when I should be resting as much as possible, but when I have to go back to work and need my alarm on my phone that’s an issue unless I go old school and purchase an alarm clock. Ive tried many other shushing white noise that’s out there and my son only likes this one: thanks creators for the much needed sleep for me and my son!

Mind blowing amazing
I’m a busy mother of 4, I’m constantly driving my older kids around so unfortunately my new born gets to ride along. As we all know infants get fussy but when I’m driving it’s so hard to get my newborn to stop crying in the backseat. I turn on this app snd with in 60 seconds he is completely calm!!!! This by far is the best $5 I’ve spent!!! Highly would recommend this to any mom on the go!!!! Thank you so much for creating this app who would of thought shhhhh on repeat would completely calm a fussy newborn 🤍

Skips & crashes every time.
It’s pretty annoying to have my baby almost asleep and then have this app crash on me. I don’t understand how apps with multiple different sounds will never crash, but this one button app does it almost every time. The “Shhh” sound will skip, and then stop playing completely even though I didn’t press the stop button. I have to delete the app, redownload it, and restart my phone each time. It’s EXTREMELY frustrating, and will guarantee my baby starts crying every time. Unfortunately, my shhh isn’t the right pitch for her and she doesn’t like it as much. I don’t know if this is a way of ensuring people buy your $30 portable machine or what, but you need to get this fixed. This is a PAID app, act like it. I honestly don’t recommend this app.

Why is there a timer?!!
The sound is good, relaxing, but one thing I don’t understand: why is there no option to just have it shush until you turn off the app?! Like any white noise app, the sound plays until you shut down the app. This app has multiple options for timer, like 15 mins, an hour etc, but is there no option to just let it run while the app runs? We have it on the 12 hours and the kiddo sleeps better with the shushing sound, and we put it on while starting the bed time routine, so by the time we put him down, it’s already been playing for an hour, and then at 11 hours mark he wakes up. Please add the option to have the sound play while the app is running.

I have to say this app is such a lifesaver. It helped my wife and I put our baby girl to rest each time she was irate. My daughter would cry each time we put her in her infant car seat, and i would slide my phone into the cushions and turn the app on, and she would calm down within a few seconds to a short few minutes!! We both recommend this to any parent with newborns- and if you’re not sure how it works, I’d suggest to look into the 4S’s dubbed by Dr Harvey Karp, author of Happiest Baby On The Block.

As an older brother, I've seen my fair share of bedtime struggles with my little sibling. However, since we introduced the Baby Shusher App into our routine, bedtime has become a breeze! What's even more impressive is that it works like magic, not only calming my sibling but also soothing my friends when they annoy me . The Baby Shusher App is a game-changer for anyone looking to bring peace and tranquility to bedtime. Highly recommend it to all big brothers out there!

No Bluetooth Capability
I was given the Susher as a gift for my 3rd baby and loved it. We were having some sleep issues with my little one and I was excited to find that there was an app. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with Bluetooth which is incredibly disappointing. I cannot leave my phone by my baby, and I really wanted to be able to just pair with the speaker and control the sound that way. Please fix the compatibility issue.

Note the improvements
Every baby is different, but this app puts my baby to sleep and/or cues that it’s time for bed. I love it! Because it’s under my Apple account, I get to use it on my phone, iPad, and old phone (that I now use just as a Shusher for on the go — when I don’t have my Hatch machine handy). Note the timer had been updated to go up to 12 hours.

12 hour time out is a game changer
My daughter was not interested in the actual Shusher due to the max 30 minute time out which is why I purchased this app offering 12 hours. Since she can’t bare to be without access to using her phone 24/7 she will use her I-Pad. I use the app to rock my grandson to sleep and feel like it relaxes me too.

Okay, I'll admit it, I was skeptical about the Baby Shusher. I mean, really? A device that just shushes? But let me tell you, I'm eating my words now. This thing is like a little miracle worker, just like it says on the product itself. My baby went from a screaming banshee to a peaceful angel in minutes. I never knew the power of a simple shush until now. Consider me a believer!

Perfect for newborn photographers
I use this app all the time as I photograph newborns, it instantly calms them and keeps me from having to get all up in their ear shushing them. Moms always ask me what it is and are amazed! I wasn't about to spend the $$ on the actual Shusher, especially since you have to worry about having batteries on hand, or losing it. My phone I wouldn't lose :)

I’ll try anything!
COLIC! It’s a dirty five letter word. We are told not to worry that my son will out grow it at three months. Three months of rigid, frantic screaming for 3-4 hours a night, 7 nights a week. I will try anything! Diet changes, 7 different brands of pacifiers, 3 brands of swaddles, rock and play, swing, crib, noise machines.... crazy Shusher app. Alas, this was not our cure or my path back to sanity. So I throw on my gun mufflers, take my Zoloft and move on to the next promised miracle.

Works like magic! Our baby is highly sensitive and screams often. We tried a lot of things to calm him down and bought a lot of gadgets. But this app calms him down immediately. He can be in the midst of screaming inconsolably and we turn this on and he stops right away. Very impressed!!!

Great! until an update broke it.
2.2.1 update broke it. It just crashes when you try to start the shushing. Prior to that, loved the app as it doesn’t time out as quickly as their rocket. Update: The app has been fixed and working as it did prior to that update. Even received feedback from developer regarding the issue.

If you have a baby, it’s a lifesaver.
We bought the physical product first, and loved it. I bought the app for when we don’t have the physical Shusher with us. At first, it was great. It had some issues with a new update, so I left a poor review. Much to my surprise, they quickly fixed it and responded to my review. Blown away. Thank you.

Great alternative to the actual Baby Shusher
Works great for my baby when she is fussy fighting falling asleep. I like that I can still use my phone while it is on, I am usually in the same room as her when she’s napping. I also like the equalizer, it stops every 3 mins and adjusts the volume based on if the baby is crying or not.

Keeps my baby asleep. We’re obsessed with this app! It’s given us a lot of long we’ll rested nights. Way better than the physical product. This can stay on all night if you want, the physical product will only stay on for 30 minutes .

Needs a little bit of work but the sound is a lifesaver
For almost $5 this app shouldn’t be crashing every time I use it. With literally one button “start” “stop” I don’t understand why it crashes. We also have the actual shusher(which I LOVE). If the bugs were fixed it would definitely be a five star app all day!

Must Have!
This app is a miracle worker for my fiesty little one! I’ve never been able to soothe her endless I pick her up and rock her. Not only did this app stop her crying in its tracks, but it also puts her right to sleep! When she is fussy and inconsolable this app works it’s magic every time !

Great concept bad App functionality
We use baby shusher every evening to calm our daughter and put her to sleep. I have to say the noise really does wonders but the app functionality is not the best. It crashes all the time, the sound will often stop for no reason and you have to constantly close the application to go back and get the sound to start again. It’s a game of patience when you already have so much going on!

Though this app is great in terms of soothing baby, it’s disappointing there aren’t different settings. It turns itself off after a certain amount of time, but it would be nice to be able to set this time yourself.

Must for colic
This helped us get through 3 months of a tough baby with colic and was worth every penny. It helped calm her down and return sanity. She’s 8 months old now so we don’t need it anymore. It feels great to be past needing this and deleting it!

App doesn’t work any longer
I used this app with my first very colic baby in 2011 but it didn’t help from what I could tell, other than maybe drown out his screams a little. Now trying to use it for my third baby that is just fussy from time to time but it shuts down every time. Useless. There doesn’t appear to be any app updates. I’m assuming they have put their focus on the physical product rather than the app.

Timer or countdown?
Overall I like the app & it works for my 3 month old. I do however think an added feature could be a timer or countdown since I often wonder how much time is left before it turns off.

Would be perfect with one improvement
Worked great, but would be awesome if for the timed feature the shushing volume had a fade out (got quieter over time), because the the stopping is sort of sudden.

Annoying ad
I love this product. I bought the physical shusher and loved it so much I bought the app as well. And it’s been great. But for months now, whenever you open the app there is a full screen popup promoting the physical version. Such a cheap marketing choice and frustrating every time I open the app.

Fine but overpriced and better options out there
At this point there are apps that do the same exact thing for cheaper. The audio quality is bad. It crackles in the speaker. The audio also doesn’t work with a Bluetooth speaker, which is kind of ridiculous. It’s a basic concept that works well sometimes, but this app doesn’t compete with newer ones.

Postpartum Doula-approved!
I am a postpartum doula and maternity coach, and I recommend this app to all my clients. Disclaimer: I always remind them to be mindful of the phone’s volume and proximity to the infant’s ears. Do not put the phone next to your infant’s head - baby ear drums are fragile.

Update causes crash
Updated my iPhone 7 to iOS 10.2.1 and received an alert in the App Store that there was now a more recent version of the app. I updated it according but now every time I go to start the shush noise it crashes. Very disappointed that I spent money on an app I can no longer use! It's a shame because I loved the previous version. If you're reading this review and considering updating... DON'T!
