How It Works

So how does the SNOO soothe your baby? Well watch the video below:

The Nuts...

According to the philosophy of Dr Harvey Karp, babies are happiest in a womb-like environment with constant motion and a fair amount of noise.

So how does the SNOO mimic this type of environment? It listens to your baby keeping a watch for when your baby cries through the use of sensors and artificial intelligence. It then produces a sort of white noise, but not exactly, which is louder than your baby. The white noise has 3 levels and the advanced technology built into the bassinet is able to tell the difference between room noise and your baby’s noise.

When your baby is upset it will also rock your baby faster from side to side, a few degrees in either direction. The level at which it plays the “white noise” and the intensity with which it rocks your baby are adjusted based on how load your baby is crying.

The SNOO also comes packed with other features such as being able to control it through the use of an app. The app, which uses Wi-Fi to connect to your phone, tells you what the SNOO is doing at any point in time and allows you to control its features.

...and Bolts

The SNOO will not function without a special included swaddle that needs to be clipped into place on either side of the sleeping surface, which keeps your baby safe. It’s a bit like a baby straight jacket – your baby stays in the middle and can’t turn over when he/she is lying on their back. This is a great safety feature as not allowing your baby to roll onto their side or back decreases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome.

The mobile app also provides helpful alerts and advice from Dr Karp as well as a sleep log report to keep track of your little ones sleep history. Within the app it provides lots of options such as indicating whether your baby is in the gentle newborn or weaning stage.

The SNOO design is clean and contemporary, not too bright or garish which should help it to fit into your room’s decor.

The Verdict

If you can afford it the SNOO is a fantastic aid in increasing the sleep your baby – and YOU – manages to obtain during the night. The extra safety it provides is not only an added benefit but is a unique selling feature on top of what they technology within the bed (and it’s pp) provides.

If you struggle to get your baby to sleep, this is definitely the right bassinet for you to invest your money in.
