Do pediatricians and doctors recommend SNOO?

Even better than simply being recommended by a pediatrician or doctor, SNOO was created by one of the most renowned pediatricians! Dr. Harvey Karp—author of bestselling book The Happiest Baby on the Block—invented SNOO based on his decades of practicing pediatrics and his research on newborn babies and calming colicky crying. The landmark innovation has been shown to calm most crying in under a minute and add an average of an hour of sleep a night on average. That’s probably why doctors, nurses, and pediatricians count themselves among SNOO’s many fans!  

For example, Dr. Lauren Pioppo, who works in internal medicine, said that she “had success from day one,” and  that SNOO’s safety features “really helps me relax. 

And ER nurse Miranda Cozad said she decided to get SNOO in part because it gave her peace of mind that her baby would sleep safely. “You can’t put a price on the safety of your child,” she stated.

Likewise, psychologist Dr. Michelle Casarella had such a positive experience with SNOO that she now recommends it to her mom patients. “I tell first-time moms that SNOO is the first thing they should put on their registry,” she said.

So, what do the experts think of SNOO? Here are some popular SNOO reviews:

The New York Times’ Wirecutter team has been using and testing SNOO since 2018. In Wirecutter’s SNOO review, the team ultimately agreed that SNOO was “in a league of its own,” with the lead tester noting that from day one of use with her son,  SNOO “proved to be effective at keeping him asleep longer than any other bassinet in our testing lineup.”

Dad-centric site Fathercraft had two families test SNOO for 30 days. Their verdict? SNOO did a “magic trick” of calming babies and improving sleep, while giving testers time to do other things (like spending time with a partner) while SNOO helped calm fussing and extend sleep. 

In the EveryMom’s honest SNOO review, their tester was initially skeptical, but found that SNOO was worth it. She said that before SNOO, her newborn would wake every 10 to 30 minutes, but in SNOO her baby was sleeping 2- to 3-hour stretches. 

After the Good Housekeeping Institute’s expert panel tested SNOO for more than 4,500 days of sleep, Good Housekeeping gave SNOO “high scores across the board, especially for being easy to use, its responsiveness to baby's cries and for promoting better sleep — both with babies and their parents.” 

In their SNOO review, the baby gear pros at Lucie’s List said that parents agreed that SNOO not only gives parents peace of mind, but it also “very literally helps babies sleep better and longer by mimicking conditions in the womb.”
