We use the Hatch Rest.
It has a multicolored light that allows you to pick the color or brightness. And there’s several noise options built in including nature noises, static, and lullabies.
You control it with your phone and can set up schedules for bed time, nap time, morning wake up. Or you can just adjust it as needed.
It’s $60, which seems steep, but for all of the options and how long we plan to use it, I think it’s worth the investment.
Agree with this. We used to be in a similar situation. We use white noise machine and although it's better, also tend to not flush.
I know it's far from easy but try to push back on curious George - we have been down that path too and it is a dark and sleepless one.
Edit: also, I never thought this would work but as usual my wife proved me wrong and got our 2 year old on it: Hatch Baby Rest Night Light, Sound Machine and Time-to-Rise [link]
Our son really does wait for the light to turn green (6am) before running to our room!
My boyfriend and I use the Hatch Sound Machine for the baby. It has a few light colors and sound options. The app can set the time changes too, so a natural wake-up light can start when you set it. I am also excited because it will help when she is a toddler and when the light is red, you stay in your room and play if you wake up, and once it turns to white, you can come out. A little pricey, but it does grow well with your kid. I have had zero complaints in the past 8 months we have had it
Hatch Sleep Machine
Iman jako lagan san i prije bi se budila po 5-6 puta svaku noć. Teta mi je kupila ovaj Hatch aparat i prezadovoljna san, ja doduše ne koristim ova svjetla na njemu jer mi triba mrkli mrak za spavanje. Ovaj je kao za bebe, ali meni savršeno funkcionira za spavanje, nisam ga još isprobala tijekom dana da vidim smanjuje li mi osjetljivost na buku
The app is called relax melodies (paid but not a subscription) and you don’t need to wear earbuds. It’ll play as loud or as low as you want it to, from your phone. For my kids I got the Hatch Baby Rest that doubles as a night light. They have one aimed for adults now but I’m fine with my phone
We just had this problem with my 3.5yo son when he just decided to start waking up every day super early, getting dressed and coming out of his room. We ended up buying this alarm clock, night light, sounds machine thingie.
We set it up so it is red when he's not allowed to get up and leave his room (technically sleep time but we long as he plays quietly in his room and doesn't wake people up, we're fine with that. It turns green at 7:30am when he can wake anyone up if we're not already up.
You can use it to visually indicate your child's entire schedule too. It's super simple to set up from your phone and we have everything on timers. We have it set so the light turns on blue at 7pm and sound machine goes on to indicate it's time for his bath and getting ready for bed. It turns red at 8:30pm when he should be asleep but we're probably finishing a book with him. Then it stays dim red with a sound machine until 7:30am as I mentioned above. We also have it do similar for his nap but you get the idea.
My 2-year old daughter was this way till we bought this
Complete game changer!! We have it set to whatever color she wants at bed, it switches to red around 10PM, after she's asleep, then turns green when it's OK to be up. We taught her "red stay in bed, green go upstairs." We've been able to push it later & later over time & now that she's 3.5 she sleeps till 6:30 or later. It was a game changer for us. I love being able to control it on my phone too. Just my 2 cents!
I don't know how old your kid is. But we got the Hatch light for our 3 year old. It's amazing. He went from waking up from 5:30-6:30 to now doesn't come out until his light changes at 6:45.
Our kids love them. We had to use white noise for our son, who is now 2 years old. He was an extremely light sleeper and would wake up mad as an infant over the slightest sounds in the house. Having white noise was the golden ticket for us and for him getting a decent night's sleep.
Our 6 year old has always had twinkle twinkle play on hers (we got hers in 2017 I think). She has to have pink but enjoys the fact that she can pick a different color on our phones.
This has become our go-to baby gift for all new parents. We have a couple wrapped for Christmas.
We have the hatch baby light, which seems very similar and it works great. I also get that feeling in frustration though, because when he goes to sleep is truly the only time when my wife and I get time to talk and relax together during the day.
My sister in law started used something like this when my niece started to wake too early, she would tell her “If you wake up early look at the glowing light, if it’s not glowing, it’s not time to wake” in the reviews it seems like it works for other people too!
I can’t give you a personal opinion cause my little one is 10 weeks and I’m lucky to get 5 consecutive hours!
Good luck though!
Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine, Night Light and Time-to-Rise [link]
I have one of those and it works great. Bluetooth so you can control with your phone and it has schedules. You can also use it when they get older to signal when they can get out of bed. It has color changing capability.
Here are a couple more pictures.
Top Five that money can buy:
1) Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 crib. I’ve seen this crib in lots of nursery pics. It is easy to put together and sturdy. We picked ours up off Facebook Marketplace for $125, including the conversion kit.
2) Hatch Rest sound machine and night light. we got a chance to trial run this little gadget a couple days ago when a friend’s toddler napped at our house. It was nice being able to change the sounds and light colors and turn up the sound using an app on my phone. Toddler was fussing and we turned up the sound a little and he went to sleep! Magic!
3) Jellycat stuffed animals. They are just so cute. I give one to all the new babies in my life. My brother and SIL gifted this baby with one.
4) Ubbi diaper pail. I don’t have experience using it, but it calms my nerves about poop. ��♀️
5) Nambe photo frame. This was a gift. It is the sweetest little frame ever and not something I think I would have splurged on for myself, but seeing it in person, I think it would be an amazing gift for new parents and even worth buying for yourself. It’s so precious.
Top Five that money can’t buy:
1) The quilt hanging in the wall was made by my great grandmother and was my baby quilt! My mom surprised me with it at my shower.
2) The framed art and picture. The top is a painting of baby garibaldis (sooooo cute!), which is the state fish of California. The bottom is a photo of my husband riding on his dad’s shoulders as a toddler.
3) This book collection. We asked people to just gift baby with a book (they gave us soooo much more in addition), and we ended up with the most wonderful collection of funny and sweet books that will continue to remind us that we have an amazing family and network of friends.
4) Box full of Beany Babies. Sentimental gift to baby from my mom.
5) The yellow giraffe basket. My best friend gave us this and told me that she had bought when I was pregnant the first time (with a baby I lost to miscarriage). For some reason it just makes me so happy that there’s something meant for that baby in this room. ❤️��
Hatch Baby Rest is the one we have.
Hatch. Can be controlled by app and has multiple customizable pre-set options.
Sure! We have one and love it too. [link]
1) Play Mat
Get a nice, large, waterproof mat with a design that you wont' get sick of within a month. You can change you baby's diapers on it, set him/her down when you need to step away, lie down on it with him/her even. I use a portable changing pad for poopy diapers.
2) Swaddles/Sleep Sack & Room Thermometer & White Noise Machine
Babies startle themselves awake in the beginning (Moro Reflex). There are lots of different kinds, Love To Dream Swaddle Up, ErgoPouch, Woombie, Halo. Google TOG guide on how to dress baby for bedtime and keep an eye on room temperature.
Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine, babies love white noise to sleep.
4) Bibs, babies will drool everywhere and make a mess eating. I have like 25x bibs and I'm tempted to buy more.
5) Bassinet/crib/floor mattress
I babyproofed baby's room early and got a 6' twin sized mattress and put on ground so baby won't have to transition from bassinet to crib and then to mattress. Baby will fall off sometimes but she falls asleep afterwards anyway. Area around mattress have blankets or play mat on top of carpet.
6) Baby Monitor/Security Camera
Visual and Audio, not fancy. But mine still works after 5 months, and if it breaks, I may buy a fancy security camera next to use as baby monitor.
6) Infant car seat that latch onto stroller.
Those are the ones I have, not fancy, but works and reliable. You'll need a new car seat after 30 lbs.
7) Nursing pillow/Recliner Chair
Or use lap feeding position to bottle feed.
That is the recliner I use to bottle feed in lap feeding position, baby gets fed, I get a massage.
This sound machine is what my NK have. It's loud enough to drown out other noise but there's an app to control it also.
Yeah, that's the one.
Yes it’s a light and sound machine - here is the link! It was a gift off my amazon registry. It’s pretty cool, links up to your phone via Bluetooth:

Honestly I have not washed the rug yet, it is very soft and looks real. I would recommend:
Ashler Soft Faux Sheepskin Fur... [link]
The sloth stuffed animal is one of my favorite registry gifts - it is just toooooo cute and super duper soft. I love it. It comes with a big one and a little one, the little one is a rattle!
