Are you finding it hard to get your child to sleep? Slumber Tot is an app that can help settle a baby, and could be the only sleep app you will ever need!
Parents have known for years that constant background sound can greatly comfort a baby, and this is backed up by years of scientific study. Life in the womb is noisy, so a quiet room can actually be unnatural and frightening to a child.
Slumber Tot provides you with a choice of sounds that will mask this uncomfortable silence - some mechanical, and some natural. You can mix and match them however you want. Also, there are several lullabies included to gently lull your baby to sleep. Classic melodies like "Twinkle Twinkle", "Rock A Bye Baby", and "Brahms' Lullaby" together with some written specially for this app.
If you want to leave Slumber Tot alone to work its magic, just tap the hourglass and you can access the timer function. This will fade off the sounds after a set time. A screen dimmer will activate after a while which will help save battery power.
Tap the moon or the sunshine icon, and you will be treated to some gently-animated night or day scenes that play soothing randomly-generated ambient sounds. Watch the balloons gently bounce around the screen as clouds float slowly by. Or listen to the stars softly bump together on the night-time scene - each bump plays a musical note, generating ambient background music.
Best of all: this is a universal app, so if you buy the iPad version, you can download the iPhone version for free! It's compatible with iPhone (including iPhone 5), iPad (and iPad Mini) and iPod Touch.
