Unboxing Your Shusher Firefly

Carefully unbox your Shusher Firefly and take out all components, including:

  • Shusher Firefly unit
  • USB-C charging cable
  • User manual

Charge the Shusher Firefly

Before the first use, it’s essential to fully charge your Shusher Firefly.

  1. Connect the USB-C charging cable to the Shusher Firefly.
  2. Plug the other end into a USB power source, such as a wall adapter.
  3. Allow the unit to charge fully. The indicator light will turn green when charging is complete.

Power On and Basic Controls

Once charged, you’re ready to power on your Shusher Firefly.

  1. Locate the power button on the unit.
  2. Press and hold the power button for a few seconds until the device turns on. This will illuminate the nightlight and initiate the shushing sound.
  3. Familiarize yourself with the basic controls:
    1. Volume control: Adjust the volume to a comfortable level for your baby.
    2. Timer settings: Set the timer for 30, 60, or 90 minutes depending on your preference.

Selecting the Shushing Sound

The Shusher Firefly is designed with a unique shushing sound that uses a real-human voice.

  1. Press the play/pause button to pause shushing. Press it again to continue shushing.
  2. Press and hold the + and - volume buttons to set the shushing to your preferred level.

Using the Sunset Nightlight

The sunset nightlight feature creates a calming environment that helps your baby transition to sleep:

  1. Press and hold the light button to reduce brightness. Repeat to dim further or disable the light. To reactivate, press and hold the light button.
  2. Adjust the brightness as needed, ensuring it’s not too bright for your baby’s comfort.

Placing the Shusher Firefly

Placement is crucial for optimal effectiveness of the Shusher Firefly. Place the device near your baby’s crib but out of reach for safety. For on the go, use the attached adjustable strap to hook to strollers, in the car, or to travel bags.

Setting Up a Sleep Routine

Integrate the Shusher Firefly into your baby’s sleep routine:

  1. Turn on the Shusher Firefly a few minutes before bedtime to signal to your baby that it’s time to wind down.
  2. Use it consistently every night to help establish a comforting and predictable bedtime routine.

Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the Shusher Firefly isn’t turning on, is making a distorted sound, or the nightlight isn’t working, ensure it’s fully charged.
  • If the device won’t turn off, ensure the device is not in pause mode
