The Snoo bassinet is not just a bassinet, but a smart sleeper bassinet, and matter of fact the only smart bassinet on the market that has worked for many babies. It was designed by Dr. Harvey Karp who happens to be a pediatrician and author.

The Snoo bassinet is a very sturdy and modern bassinet that plays white noise and sways left and right to soothe and calm your baby. It has a swaddle that will keep your baby on their back and in one place. A baby from the very beginning from within the womb is used to being in this environment, and it needs to be accompanied until baby starts making adjustments.

Let’s further read more about the Snoo bassinet review.


The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends for babies to sleep onto their backs especially for the first six months of age. One safe furniture item would be a bassinet, and why not let your baby sleep in a Snoo bassinet.

The Snoo bassinet comes with a swaddle that will attach to safety clips that will keep your baby secure on their backs. This will prevent them from turning or rolling onto their backs when they get to that point. This is a crucial point from preventing anything happening to your baby.

The Snoo bassinet is equipped with white noise and motion that will increase with levels as your baby starts to increase with fussiness. This smart bassinet will detect the fussiness by your baby, and will automatically increase the level of noise and motion of the mattress to relax your baby’s comfort. This will ultimately lead to at least 1-2 additional hours of baby sleep at night. The more the baby sleeps at night, the more the parents sleep at night. Newborns will start to sleep better in 1-2 days, and babies older than 6 weeks will see an improvement in 3-7 days.

In the long run, this can be great for your baby because they can be weaned off the bassinet to a crib within time, and that’s where you want them to be eventually. This bassinet can be used until when your baby is six months of age, or when they can get onto their hands and knees. The maximum carrying capacity to this bassinet is 25 lbs.

What is included

With the Snoo smart sleeper bassinet, there are a few items that come included. The first item is a swaddle or sack, and 3 of these are included. There come in 3 sizes: S, M, and L as these can be switched out as your baby gets older and bigger. Each sack comes with safety clips that attach to the sides of the inside of the bassinet, and that is what sways the bassinet in a side-to-side motion when it’s on.

Second comes an appropriate sized mattress. Finally, the third item is a fitted sheet, and this fitted sheet is 100% organic cotton. This fitted sheet can be washed accordingly when needed.

The mobile App

The mobile app is included and it can be downloaded straight to your phone. It’s easy to customize as there are settings you can adjust.

You can also track your baby’s progress in a sleep log, and it lets you know how your baby has been doing over time. In addition, and what is more important are the alerts. These alerts will let you know when your baby will need attention after the smart sleeper has done its job. This could mean that your baby is either hungry, is having some sort of discomfort, or simply needs a diaper change.

What customers have to say about it

Thousands and thousands of customers have purchased the Snoo bassinet, and majority of them were satisfied and overall happy. Some customers even purchased two or three Snoo bassinets, because they either had twins or triplets. The customers that were happy overall got more sleep for themselves and for their babies.

On the other hand, many customers and only a small percentage did not like the Snoo bassinet due to a couple reasons. One reason was in regards to how much the overall unit did cost. They said it was too expensive, and why it had to be that much. It’s the total design and it’s capabilities is what’s making it cost that much. The second reason is how the Snoo bassinet did not work for their baby.

What most parents do need to understand and keep in mind is that a baby’s stomach is so small that it could only fit so much milk at once. That is why a newborn baby needs to be fed every 2-3 hours, because the previous feed has been digested and processed, and left with an empty stomach. Many parents do become frustrated and think the Snoo bassinet had become a failure, but many parents become occupied with many other things, and fail to recognize this crucial aspect.

In conclusion…

The Snoo bassinet is not for every baby as some did not like it for whatever reason. You will not know unless you give it a try for your baby, and it might even surprise you. It does come with a 30-day return policy, a 1-year limited warranty, and even free return shipping.
