How do you use the Baby Einstein Sea Dreams Soother?

Baby Einstein Sea Dreams Soother - baby light & sound machineCongratulations on purchasing this baby light & sound machine. Before you start using this soother, you need to insert the batteries in the actual Sea Dreams Soother and then into the remote control (you need to purchase the batteries separately).

With the Baby Einstein Soother, you have 4 different modes you can select:

  • Mode 1 = Music + Lights + Motion
  • Mode 2 = Music
  • Mode 3 = Nature Sounds + Lights + Motion
  • Mode 4 = Nature Sounds

As you can see, you don’t need to have the lights or the motion on at all, if you find that these are too distracting sometimes. To help your little one drift off to sleep, the Baby Einstein Soother comes with a Drift Off Feature, which commences 10 minutes after playback has started. Baby Einstein Sea Dreams Soother - baby light & sound machine

  • At 10 minutes the sea motion stops and the volume decreases.
  • At 20 minutes the lights turn off and the volume decreases even more.
  • At 25 minutes, the volume turns off and the unit goes into standby mode.

You can play whatever mode you wish again if your little one has not settled and you can choose the modes with your remote control (which is good for up to about 15 feet away).

The unit either sits on a shelf near the cot or can be attached to the railings of the cot using the included attachment.

Since it operates on batteries, this baby light & sound machine is ideal for taking on holiday with you, to visit friends or even in the car for long journeys.
