What is a Snoo Smart Sleeper & is it Worth the Money?


Hi guys! I am excited to share with you a new product that I found that I think will make your life easier as a new parent. I am seriously disappointed that this was not invented when my babies were born. I remember when I would give anything to have my newborn sleep just a little longer, so I could get just a little more sleep and be better prepared to care for her all day. I went through the first six months of my babies’ lives being sleep deprived and quite frankly miserable. Everyone tells you that you should be happy and grateful but sometimes it is just so hard, do you feel me? My point being I would have given anything to have the Snoo Smart Sleeper.

The SNOO Smart Sleeper and it is the first responsive bassinet that boost sleep for babies and parents! This crib was created by Dr. Harvey Karp. It is a little bit of a splurge at $1,200, so you will have to weigh whether you think it is worth it for your family. It is on sale right now for $928 here. *YAY!*  I will provide you a through analysis of the cribs features and you can check out the video below from Dr. Harvey Karp to help decide if it is worth the cost for your family.


  • The Snoo Smart Sleeper responds to cries. This crib will hear your baby fussing and will respond with a gradual increase in the white noise and motion until it finds the perfect combo to soother your fussy baby.
  • It prevents rolling. It comes with a SNOO sack that attaches to safety clips to secure your baby in the crib and to prevent risky rolling. It is the only sleep solution that keeps you baby safe on his back as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. I think this piece of mind alone is worth the money.
  • Then there’s the app. Of course, there’s an app, right? The app logs your baby’s sleep and let’s you adjust motion, sound and the cry sensitivity. It also has a preemie mode and a weaning option to ease the transition to the crib.
  • This crib comes with a 30-day risk trial, so you can return it if you are not satisfied and they even pay your shipping.
  • Included in your purchase is the mattress, the fitted sheet and 3 SNOO sacks!
  • Newborns will start sleeping better in 1-2 days and babies older than 6 weeks will start sleeping better in 3-7 days.

Here is a video of Dr. Harvey Karp explaining how the crib works:


Parents are ranting over this crib. Here is one of the reviews:

This thing is simply the greatest baby gear I've encountered. I started using it for my third child when he was 11 weeks old. I knew it was a crazy amount of money to only be able to use it for a couple months, but when I went back to work, the sleep deprivation was insane. I have 3 boys ages 3.5 yo, 18 months, and my 11-week-old. The baby was waking up about every two hours and would immediately wake up if I put him ANYWHERE that wasn't next to me. The very first night in the snoo, he slept from 8pm to almost 4am!!!! And did I mention he had previously hated being swaddled....My only regret is that I did not have this magical baby machine from day one of my very first child. Thank you Dr. Karp and all those wonderful people at the snoo factory:)
