Multi-award winning Whisbear® The Humming Bear is an innovative sleep aid created by two Mothers. Based on their own experience, they have designed a product aimed to help newborns with a smooth transition from a prenatal to postnatal life by recreating soothing sounds of the womb. Whisbear® is the first sleep aid featuring the CRYsensor, an intelligent device that automatically activates calming pink noise when your baby starts crying. But Whisbear® is so much more than just a sleep product. It is also a sensory toy, a unique playtime companion that promotes both – fine motor and sensory development skills.

Infants don’t like silence
The discussion about Pink noise should begin with an explanation of what happens in the mother’s womb. In short – it’s not a quiet place. Blood rushes through the umbilical cord, the mother’s heart rhythmically beats, bowel movements. Actually, the noise is louder than a turned on vacuum cleaner! Quite a party! However, baby ears are protected with fluid, vernix and thick tympanic membrane.
After birth children don’t hear all the sounds either. At the time their hearing threshold is about 40dB (so they might not react to our whispers, which are about 30 dB). In the first year of life hearing develops quickly and children are able to hear “quieter” sounds. Logically, quiet environment might be quite stressful for a new-born baby.
Specially selected shushing sound
The magic of Whisbear® is locked in a small, round device. It emits pink noise reminding babies of the sounds that used to sooth them during their prenatal life in the womb. This is why the pink noise is such a powerful method of soothing newborns and also older babies.
The sound we use in our Whisbear® has been “composed” by top class experts and than tested by thousands of Babies around the world. The type, frequency and tone of the sound we use is pleasant and safe for tiny ears and calming for a newly born mind.
