What We Love
But most of all, it is how the SNOO Sleeper improves the sleep duration (and quality!) of both baby and parents.
Added Sleep & Calms Fussing
As mentioned above, SNOO is a responsive baby cot. What this means is that it responds to what your baby needs in a combination of gentle rocking motion, soothing white noise and snug, safe swaddling.
Created by Dr. Harvey Karp (The 5 S’s, Happiest Baby on the Block), SNOO produces constant rumbly sounds and gentle rocking motions that imitate the calming sensations of the womb to help babies sleep.
It may sound gimmicky, but through this way, the SNOO really does what it claims of boosting baby's sleep by 1-2+ hours.
Parents have raved how their babies need not any patting or soothing from them anymore and are able to sleep through the night, ranging from 9 to even 12 hours straight.
The smartness of it doesn't stop there - the SNOO will automatically responds to cries.
Yes, through advance algorithm programming, it can 'hear' baby's cries from room noise and respond to it automatically by gradually increasing the strength of white noise and motion to find the best level to calm the fussing.
Usually, it will be able to calm any crying in under a minute.
Just like a pair of human hands, you will rock baby slightly more vigorously if s/he fusses and slow down when baby calms down - the SNOO does exactly the same thing.
It's like your extra pair of hands, without the need for you to initiate any button.
Naturally Sleep Trains
This may sound too good to be true, but the SNOO Sleeper is able to also naturally sleep train your newborn.
Through the same method (constant calming womb), it teaches baby to self-soothe with little need to cry-it-out.
Parents noticed that they can lay their awake baby in the cot and after a while, baby will fall asleep on his own without any fussing while in the past, they struggled to even put them to sleep after a few hours.
In fact, over 200 babies have been tested with results showing them to have less crying and more sleep. By quickly developing healthy sleeping habit with the SNOO at the newborn stage, it reduces the need for sleep training down the road.
Mobile App Customization
The above-mentioned sound and motion features were designed to have 5 levels.
You can control the level either:
- through a discreet-looking control panel by the side of the cot or,
- download the brand's app to customize your settings via your smart phone/devices.
We recommend getting the app because you get to view your baby’s sleep patterns (track daily, weekly, monthly press) via the SNOO Sleep Logs.
You get to also control the SNOO remotely by picking the best motion and white noise levels for your baby, as well as adjust cry sensitivity.
Once you have set up an account, the app will log your baby's sleep and alert you if baby needs more attention i.e. due to hunger or discomfort.
It also includes a preemie mode and weaning option so that you can ease transition to the crib.
And, you get access to helpful tips and fun info from Dr. Harvey Karp, the founder!
Multi-Award Winning & Added Safety
We're not exaggerating when we say the SNOO Smart Sleeper is the world's most awarded baby bed.
Just look at the list above - they are not just any random award but acknowledgment from some of industries' top best.
Also, it has been featured in over 200 plus publications over the world including the likes of CNN, Business Insider, The Wall Street Journal etc.
In fact, SNOO is the only infant bed in the market to have met the American Academy of Pediatrics Safe Sleep guidelines. One of which is the prevention of risky rolling.
You see, the SNOO Sack that it comes with is a unique 5-second swaddle that attaches to safety clips on the mattress to secure babies on their back and prevent them from risk rolling.
As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, laying on their back is the safest sleeping positioning for babies. The SNOO is, to date, the only sleep solution that is able to do so.
As mentioned, SNOO Sacks come with the SNOO Sleeper. Not just that, it comes with a bunch of other accessories as well:
3 white SNOO Sacks (S,M,L) made with 100% organic cotton and breathable mesh.
1 fitted sheet made with 100% GOTS certified organic cotton
1 firm but comfortable mattress with water-resistant cover
It doesn't stop at just tangible accessories. SNOO also offers:
Unlimited access to sleep consultants 7days/week
1 year limited warranty with 30-day no risk trial (fully refunded with return shipping paid)
Things to Note
Given all its revolutionary aspects, it is perhaps not surprising to find that the SNOO Smart Sleeper is not the best cheap bassinet, to say the least.
Its price tag is not for everyone, we'd even go as far as to say it could very well be the most expensive infant bassinet in the market.
Do we think it is worth the investment though? Absolutely. Especially if your newborn is a fussy one and you struggle to put him to sleep, this bassinet will change the sleeping game forever.
Also, the SNOO is heavy. Not to say that it is a downside (given its smart design, there's bound to be some added weight) but if you're thinking of moving it around the house or even to grandma's, then a portable bassinet may be more up to the job.
There are so many baby products promising so much but delivering so little, the SNOO Smart Baby Sleeper is, fortunately, not one of those.
This is the best infant bassinet that actually boosts sleep and calms baby's fussing and among all the competition, it is certainly one of the best self rocking bassinets with its automatic rocking aspect.
The SNOO Smart Sleeper is really the creme de la creme, the best baby bassinet that is worth every penny offering new parents the precious gift of rest and peace of mind.
