A bassinet that promises to make your baby sleep better and longer sounds too good to be true—but with the SNOO, it’s a reality. Designed by pediatrician and child development expert Dr. Harvey Karp, the SNOO prioritizes safety (meeting all of the AAP’s safe sleep recs) and quality sleep (delivering longer stretches in just one to two days). It’s an investment, but one that is beyond worth it—here’s why.

What we love

  • The SNOO automatically responds to fussiness with noise and movement that simulates the womb, calming most cries in under a minute—and alerts you if more attention is needed
  • The attached swaddle safely keeps babies on their backs, prevents overheating and protects against hip dysplasia
  • The weaning feature, which eases baby off all-night motion, prepares baby for the transition to the crib


The hype is real: The SNOO and all of its features will have you and baby sleeping through the night in no time—and can you really put a price tag on a good night’s sleep?
