Snoo (Baby Sleeper) Rental
I don't even call it a bed. I kind of think of it as your grandmother. - Dr. Harvey Karp.
Min. 1 month; can extend after 2 weeks
After working with several families with the Snoo as my assistant, I felt that being able to offer this bassinet to families in need of some sleep for the first few weeks after their new life begins with baby, is a great option.
My recommended rental time is 3 months. Some babies adjust more quickly and some less quickly so that is left to each individual family once they start working with the Snoo.
Please note: There are linen purchase or rental options which must be used for the functionality of the Snoo. Please contact us for those option details.
SNOO helps babies be happy!
Dr. Harvey Karp is a Los Angeles pediatrician whose smart-tech baby sleeper, the Snoo, is a game-changer for some sleep-deprived parents.The Snoo has earned rave reviews from baby gear experts and parents alike, including Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. Last year, the consumer products show CES bestowed its coveted baby safety award on the invention.
The Snoo is all about swaddling. Just don’t call it a bed. In a video on his website, Papa Karp says the Snoo provides a service “more than being a thing.” It gently rocks and jiggles babies from birth to six months old, a period he calls the “fourth trimester,” when — he believes — simulating the womb environment is key to calming babies.
Babies are zipped into a mesh sleep sack after a broad cotton swaddle tightly pins the infant’s arms to the side from shoulder to wrist. The sack is then secured to the Snoo’s frame before the rocking and a white-noise lullaby commence. Karp, who’s also written a book, “The Happiest Baby on the Block,”says infants should be soothed in 40 to 60 seconds. The Snoo increases its motion and noise based on persistent sound from the baby, until it reaches its fourth and final level. If that doesn’t work, it turns off. Parents can adjust settings manually or with an app.
The Snoo also comes with an organic cotton sheet and sleep sacks in three sizes. Getting babies to sleep soundly can also reduce postpartum depression and marital stress. “The No. 1 stress that new parents talk about is exhaustion,” Karp said.
