SNOO Healthcare Program

Happiest Baby Health

At Happiest Baby, we partner with hospitals, universities, and community-based organizations to advance dynamic new research on the clinical impact of enhanced sleep. Our mission is to give clinicians the tools they need to improve the care and wellbeing of new families.

The SNOO Hospital Bundle is designed for use by health professionals across clinical care settings, from nurseries to NICUs. The SNOO Hospital Bundle includes a mobility platform for easy transport, durable soft goods, and infection control covers — everything you and your care teams need to get started with SNOO!

All SNOOs include a 1-year limited warranty and on-demand customer care support, 7 days per week.

Clinicians Testimonials

"SNOO is a breakthrough device that could change the outcome for our most vulnerable citizens, our infants.”
Dr. Colleen Kraft,
Past President, American Academy of Pediatrics
“We have a baby with inconsolable crying in our special care nursery that has turned into a content peaceful baby in the SNOO.”
Debra, Nursing Unit Manager, University of Washington Medical Center
“Every parent loves the bed. I find babies in the SNOO sleep quietly.”
Lori, MD, Director,
University of Kentucky
“In our SNOO study, infants are more settled, and parents get more rest. It has reduced the risk of sleep-deprived parents falling asleep in the chairs/beds when holding infants.”
Debra, Pediatric Clinical Nurse Leader,
Boston Children’s Hospital, South Shore affiliate
“We have used the SNOO on 76 infants and 60 have not gone to the NICU and were discharged between 5-7 days…Having their infant in their room helps the mothers prepare for going home with their new baby.”
Karen Frantz DeSeptis,
BSN RNC, Summa Health
“My daughter is now 1 year old and I am so glad I had a SNOO. As a surgical trainee, this was so important in helping me get adequate rest so that I could be at peak performance, especially when operating on long cases.”
Thinzar Lwin, MD, MS, Surgical Oncology Fellow, Mass General Brigham
“I am the manager of the step down NICU. I have to say that SNOO worked miracles on our NAS babies!!”
Kwajalein RN-BC,
West Penn Hospital
