It goes without saying that when we have young babies, it’s hard to get a good night’s sleep. But when the kids are older you expect to lay down and sleep so you can be rested to face each day.
That’s easier said than done if you live in a busy city like New York City.
If it’s not the vulgar and unrelenting blare of speeding fire trucks. It’s the impatient honking of the horn by the gypsy cab driver. Then there is the insensitive road contractor who thinks it’s OK to drill in a residential neighborhood at 10:30P on a Thursday night.
Can I also mention the mobile dance clubs driving past my window in the wee hours of the morning? Why do these people think I and the entire east coast want to listen to their “music”?
To make matters worst, my bedroom faces a busy intersection. I’m also surrounded by neighbors who love to party loudly on the weekends.
It’s enough to drive a monk insane.
My mother still expresses disbelief that I can fall asleep let alone sleep all night in my bedroom.
So, after years of suffering, my Naturopathic Doctor (ND) recommended I use a white noise machine. Short of having myself knocked out, it is practically impossible for me to get a good night’s sleep — no matter what I try.
Truthfully, apart from the month I did a juice fast, a good night’s sleep for me has been few and far between.
I was skeptical. Still, I searched Amazon, read the reviews and decided to purchase the Dohm-DS.

It works by making a soothing noise, that actually “mask” other noises. Interesting how that works.
I use it every night.
Turn off the lights.
Turn on the Dohm.
I never thought it could happen to me. I don’t even hear when my kids come home late anymore.
And, when they have their friends over on a Friday night, I don’t want to hear them.
On goes the Dohm-DS.
