Is The SNOO Safe?

We spent 7 years building and perfecting SNOO before bringing it to millions of parents around the world. Since its release, SNOO has been regarded as “the safest baby bed ever made,” it has received more than 22 awards, and is even being evaluated by the FDA as a life-saving medical device to help prevent infant sleep deaths.

With that in mind, below you’ll find a number of “general” baby bed safety tips. Please make sure to use these safety tips with SNOO (though many also apply to other baby beds, bassinets, and sleepers).

General Baby Bed Safety Tips

  • Always keep SNOO on a flat even surface.
  • Put the power cable holder on the leg closest to the electric wall socket to prevent tripping.
  • Never place anything under the SNOO legs or mattress, except for SNOO Smart Sleeper Leg Lifters. SNOO Leg Lifters raise the head of the bassinet on a slight, safe incline. They can help your baby breathe a little easier during mild colds and stuffy noses. (Some doctors also recommend head elevation to reduce spitting up and acid reflux.)
  • Do not put other blankets, toys or items in SNOO, as advised by the AAP to prevent suffocation and strangulation risks.
  • It is only safe to use the SNOO Sack with the zipper fully closed at the top and bottom.
  • Upon laying your baby down—whether SNOO is on or off—always ensure your child’s safety by securing the swaddle’s wings to the safety clips.

Pretty simple, right? We hope your family enjoys safer, better sleep with SNOO! You can even now rent a SNOO for a low monthly cost (about the price of a cup of coffee a day)!
