Happiest Baby SNOO Smart Sleeper

There are a number of motion devices on the market, including swings and the like to rock your baby to sleep, but when they are very young, not sitting up on their own and still in the cradle the options become fewer. Enter SNOO. SNOO is all about getting your baby to sleep and it does so with a soothing white noise and gentle motion designed to simulate life in the womb. SNOO does this by providing gentle rocking and soothing. In addition there are sensors that quickly respond to baby’s cries often calming baby’s fussing in seconds, before you even get out of bed. When SNOO arrived for testing we were pretty sure it was going to catch the attention of new, sleep-deprived parents, we were so right! Parents told us they could sense that their baby was calmer and actually learning to self-soothe. And if that wasn’t enough, there is an app that lets you adjust the motion and sound levels remotely. Parents liked the fact that SNOO comes with an organic cotton fitted sheet and swaddle that clips in and restricts sudden movements. We must address the price. This is EXPENSIVE. This means it is not for everyone. However, if you have lots of disposable income or a rich and generous family member who loves to spoil you, you are going to be very, very grateful.

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
