How does the SoundBub Portable Bluetooth Speaker and Baby Soother work?
Well, first of all you have to decide which of the three cute SoundBubs you want – Ollie the Owl, Benji the Bear or Bella the Bunny – and this might be your hardest decision!
Once you have made this difficult decision, then you are ready to use the SoundBub to settle and entertain your baby. First of all it comes with a handy clip making it really easy to hook onto a stroller, car seat, backpack or the side of your cot. If you want to place it on a dresser in the nursery, then the handy clip also doubles as a stand to keep it upright on a flat surface.
Using the pre-loaded sounds
There is an ON/OFF dial on the very top of the SoundBub, a volume dial on the left side and a timer option on the right side. Once you have turned it on, you decide if you want to use the timer (30, 60 or 90 minutes) or let it play continuously until you switch it off yourself.
Then press the SoundBub’s belly and either the Malibu Beach or Montana Rain white noise tracks will play automatically. You can access more white noise tracks and other soothing content via the VoiceShare app.
Using your own Bluetooth devices
To connect to your Bluetooth devices, you need to flick the switch on the top of the SoundBub towards the Bluetooth symbol. The LED light then flashes and you can connect the unit to your iPod, smartphone or other music player.
The sounds are super clear and crisp, and being able to play your own music or lullabies is a great feature of this sound machine.
FYI: The continuous play option only works when you plug your SoundBub Portable Bluetooth Speaker and Baby Soother into the mains power. Otherwise, you will run your battery out in about 2 hours flat.
What do customers say about the SoundBub?
Whilst there are not a lot of online reviews available for the Sound Bub, those that can be found say that they love this cute sound machine.
One point to note is that many customers who have left online reviews received the SoundBub at a discounted price.
This may or may not have influenced their reviews, but you have to admit that the SoundBub is seriously cute and has lots of great features.
My daughter absolutely loves this blue tooth speaker. My 9 year old son even likes it and wants it in his room at night as he has trouble falling asleep with no noise in the background.
We leave this plugged in next to our son’s bassinet and have an iPod plugged in across the room. He finally started sleeping through the night as soon as he had constant music and/or sounds.
I have a brand new 2 week old at home and we have used this speaker every day that he has been home.
I made a lullaby playlist on my iPad and I play it every day during nap time. It definitely helps my baby know it’s sleepy time and helps soothe her to sleep.
Should you buy the SoundBub Portable Bluetooth Speaker and Baby Soother?

There is also the option of using the timer, giving you a helping hand in saving the battery life and a handy clip for attaching to your stroller, cot or car seat, which also doubles as a stand on flat surfaces as well.
