The iPhone App That Saved My Sleep And My Sanity

As if I didn't already love it enough...

I kind of love my iPhone.  It just makes my life easier and therefore better.

When I’m lost, it helps me find my way.  When I need to know conversions for cooking, it tells me.  It keeps me organized, captures precious baby moments on camera and even sometimes helps me prove my “rightness” in debates with my husband.

And just when I thought my iPhone couldn’t get any more awesome, it did.  My iPhone can even put my baby to sleep, via this miracle of an app I recently discovered.

I discovered the most amazing app called Relax Melodies and it changed my life.

I thought I might go crazy with Fern’s lack of sleep and then we discovered the wonderful miracle of white noise courtesy of this Relax Melodies app.  You can choose from a variety of sounds (Fern’s favorite is the “heavy rain” sound obviously, since she’s an Oregonian) and the best part is that you can choose to have the sounds play continuously or set a timer to have it turn off after a certain amount of time.  You can also layer the sounds (i.e. heavy rain + ocean waves + music box) in whatever way your heart so desires.

I feel like I should write a thank you letter to the creators of this app for saving my sleep and my sanity.  Thank you Relax Melodies!
