Shhhh – New iPhone App Calms Fussy Newborns, Yields More Peace and Sleep for Tired Parents

Baby Shusher iPhone Application Engages Natural Calming Reflex to Soothe Crying Babies

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tired moms and dads with newborns at home needn’t look any further than their iPhone® for the newest tool in their baby-soothing arsenal. Now available in the iTunes application store, the Baby Shusher iPhone app provides exhausted parents with an easy way to calm fussy babies, while enabling everyone in their household to get some much needed sleep.

“Newborns certainly bring true joy to their parents’ lives, but anyone with kids also knows the struggle and sheer exhaustion that comes with tending to their baby’s every need, especially when their cute-as-can-be new arrival simply won’t stop crying”

The Baby Shusher app uses an ancient but doctor-tested and approved shushing technique to help soothe crying, colicky or generally unsettled babies. The app engages a newborn’s natural calming reflex by producing a rhythmic shushing sound which replicates the noise babies constantly hear while in the womb.

“Newborns certainly bring true joy to their parents’ lives, but anyone with kids also knows the struggle and sheer exhaustion that comes with tending to their baby’s every need, especially when their cute-as-can-be new arrival simply won’t stop crying,” said Chad Zunker, creator of the Baby Shusher application and father of two young daughters. “We created the Baby Shusher app for those parents who are in need of more rest and sleep—for both themselves and their babies—and to help prevent a swell of crankiness from taking over their households. Yep, there’s now an app for that.”

The High-Tech Shush

While doctors have long advocated the shushing technique as one way to help calm a crying newborn, the Baby Shusher iPhone app enables parents to save their breath and master the approach with ease, regardless of their lung capacity. The app’s high-tech features include:

  • Rhythmic shush – The soothing sound produced by the Baby Shusher application is designed to break a baby’s crying spell and engage their natural calming reflex.
  • Timer options – Easy timer options provide parents with added control, allowing them to choose how long the shushing sound plays, from fifteen minutes up to eight hours.
  • Automatic Sound Equalizer – The app automatically adjusts its own volume to be consistent with the volume of a baby’s cry. With loud wailing, the Baby Shusher’s volume increases. Likewise, when a baby calms down, the app’s volume softens.
  • Community Forum – To help connect new parents with others around the world who are sharing similar life experiences, the Baby Shusher Community Forum provides a way to trade stories and baby secrets, learn from others, and also get support and encouragement.

The Baby Shusher iPhone app is available for download through the iTunes application store, and will soon be available on the Android platform. Full details can be found on the Baby Shusher website—including the humorous story behind the genesis of the high-tech baby-soothing application and video of the Baby Shusher in action as it quickly calms a distressed newborn.
