We Dream, volume 2 CD Review

My daughter is 5 1/2 and has fallen asleep to ocean and rain sounds since birth. White noise soothes her and lulls her to sleep. My husband and I have both been using rain or ocean cds or a sound machine since college. It actually wakes us up if the sound happens to stop suddenly in the night when the power goes out in our nearly 100 year old, country home.

I recently was sent a cd (in exchange for my honest evaluation) from Ryan Judd, who is a board certified music therapist.  I have enjoyed his other compilations in the past.  This cd is called We Dream (volume 2) and is the  followup to his previous masterpiece of the name.  His music is perfect for our needs.  My daughter listens to it every night as she sleeps.  He takes the beauty of ocean waves and uses instrumental guitar to gently soothe.  

His music is available on his website as well as Amazon.  

"These instrumental guitar compositions are based on the most recent research that shows the positive effects of music on sleep. The soothing ocean waves create a womb-like sound experience and produce white noise to drown out household sounds. This music creates the rhythm of a resting heartbeat which can help you both relax, fall asleep and sleep soundly." 

I also like playing this music for my 2 1/2 month old to calm him to sleep.  He has acid reflux and often is very uncomfortable and stressed after a feeding (he is breastfed but has some tummy issues).  He enjoys listening to shushing sounds, rain/ocean/womb/heart beat sounds and classical / instrumental music.  

The ocean track continues throughout the entire CD, it has a smooth transition without breaks or silence between songs.  I love how the tracks are played at the rhythm of the resting heart rate.  I find this soothing for my newborn, my toddler (age 2), my 5  1/2 year old, and myself.  I highly recommend this cd and his others as well.

I was sent this complimentary for my evaluation, however I thoroughly enjoy it and we have listened to it every night (and some in the day for nap times).
