The sleep sheep was a gift from grandma to our son. I honestly have no idea if the white noise does anything to help our son sleep- we really struggle with sleeping. It definitely helps mommy and daddy fall asleep!
As far as white noise, I think the rainfall and ocean sounds are really the best. The whale noises are a little strange sounding and the heartbeat is terrible. The automatic shutoff function is nice, particularly when, as I mentioned above, mommy and daddy have been lulled to sleep by the sheep. But beware! Do not place the sleep sheep anywhere near a hard surface if it is in bed with you! Many a night we have been startled out of sleep when one of us knocked the sheep into the headboard, activating the heartbeat sound (always that terrifying heartbeat noise). What a annoyance to find that you've been awoken not by your child's hunger, but by the deafening bwomp...bwomp of the sheep, all the while whisper-cursing as you struggle to turn the sheep off before the noise awakens your little one.
