What is white noise and why it's beneficial for sleep?

White noise is a sound made by evenly combining all the audible frequencies humans can hear at an equal intensity to create a steady noise with no specific pitch. This can sound like a fuzzy, humming, static-like or hissing like noise. White noise can be helpful by masking other sound and noises in the sleep environment that may be distracting or disruptive for a person going to sleep, and staying asleep. For infants, white, pink or brown noise can also act as a sleep cue for your baby, and calm and soothe baby through familiar sounds.

When used safely, white noise is suitable to use from birth for a baby as one part of your sleep settling toolkit.
