For a professional football player, there might be one thing as coveted as a Super Bowl ring, as essential to performance as time spent in the gym, and as pep-inducing as an inspiring coach—and that is sleep!  

Because of the direct impact rest has on physical and mental performance, it’s no surprise that so many NFL players have turned to SNOO to help their families snag more shuteye. With a record of adding 1 to 2+ hours of sleep per night, SNOO is basically the MVP of baby beds. So, when these NFL families “go long” we’re talking in hours of sleep, baby! Check out just a few of the NFL players that have turned to SNOO.

Football fans have nothing on SNOO fans! Robertson took to Instagram to praise our smart sleeper not once, but twice, writing, “I’m a huge fan of the Happiest Baby brand. We couldn’t be happier with our #SNOO & all the sleep gained because of it. Wish we had one in the past! Later Robinson expressed his appreciation again, posting: “Thank you Happiest Baby for helping Rylee consistently sleep through the night and make her parents happy.”

2022 Super Bowler Ricardo Allen’s second daughter, Lennon, made her debut during the most grueling part of the football season—when sleep was key. Fortunately, with SNOO, little Lennon was able to snooze for 3 hours at a time right away, according to mom Grace.

“Not only is this bed amazing for nighttime sleep, it's amazing for when you just really need a shower, or to feed yourself, or to switch the laundry,” blogged Grace. It’s literally like having an extra set of hands in your home at all times,” she wrote about this “game-changer.” The Allens were clearly smitten with SNOO, since it came out again in 2020 when Luna Rose Allen entered the family!

The two-time Pro Bowler got nostalgic about his youngest’s SNOO days in a #TBT: “Can’t believe it’s been a year since this video of Henry was taken. Seems like just yesterday. Jordan and I can’t say it enough how much we loved our SNOO. Baby Henry loved it too,” he wrote

Who currently holds the title of “Happiest Baby on the Block”? It’s Miller’s son Breckin, the since-retired Bear declared on Instagram.

::Sportscaster voice:: It seems like there might be as much competition for the title of Happiest Baby on the Block as there is for the Vince Lombardi trophy because Jones tweeted that his daughter “is the Happiest Baby on the Block.” (We’ll let the refs make the call!)
