You, after your first night using a sound machine. 

That’s a whole bunch of people looking for natural sleep aids that don’t involve prescriptions or chemicals. Though there are trendy sleep aids like weighted blankets for more restful sleep and innovative solutions like sunrise alarm clocks for more natural wake-ups, many people still struggle to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Sound machines work by reducing the difference between background sound and “peak” sound, like a door slamming or a car alarm. When you use a sound machine, you’re essentially teaching your brain to redefine what it registers as a loud noise, so you’re able to sleep through sounds that might otherwise wake you up.

For folks looking to get their best shut eye, we’ve found some of the best sound machines on Amazon that also have alarm clocks. Take a look below at the highest-rated ones, according to reviewers:

    "This little thing packs a punch. Right off the bat I plugged it in and it had a nice speaker. There are so many different sounds you can chose from which I love because my daughter likes different ones every night. Sometimes I prefer the rain and she likes the white noise. It truly helps us sleep better which is why I got this one. You can also set an alarm and the clock so it has multiple uses."Amazon Reviewer

    "My wife and I had used another sound machine for about a year and a half. It suddenly died, and we went shopping to get a replacement. The Sleep Sound Therapy System was probably the most expensive unit I found, but the reviews I read were good, and we couldn't stand hearing all the night noises, so I took the plunge. We've only had it for a few weeks now, but so far it's been terrific."Amazon Reviewer

    "I am extremely happy with this purchase. It is made very well, the speaker system is great, and the variety of "sleep sounds" and color light therapy are wonderful. I have suffered from insomnia for a long time, waking up thru the nights and "losing about 3 hours of sleep time" on a regular basis. I've been using this for about a week now.

Also, the clock projects the time onto the wall or ceiling. I prefer the ceiling. It is affordable compared to others. I didn't need anything extravagant.
