Happiest Baby’s SNOO is the safest, most effective baby bed on the market. Using a responsive system, SNOO boosts sleep, reduces crying and naturally sleep trains babies. When the baby fusses, SNOO responds in seconds with womb-like rocking and shushing to calm the baby.

  • Exhaustion is the #1 challenge of new parents and triggers marital stress, postnatal depression, obesity, breast feeding failure, car accidents, smoking and deaths due to unsafe sleep practices. About 100 Australian babies die annually of Sudden Unexpected Death of Infancy or SUDI, which includes both SIDS and suffocation deaths; a top factor in these tragedies is the infant rolling face down.

  • In response to these serious problems, Dr. Harvey Karp, a American pediatrician, and his wife/co-founder Nina Montée Karp joined with celebrated designer, Yves Behar, and MIT robotics expert, Dr. Deb Roy, to create SNOO, the world's smartest, safest bassinet. Using continuous womb rhythms SNOO quickly boosts infant sleep 1-2+ hours/ night. And, by responding to fussing with added sound + motion it often calms crying in seconds. Thanks to its unique secured swaddle, SNOO is the only baby bed that meets the Australian Pediatric Society recommendation to keep infants sleeping on the back all night.

  • SNOO is 100% effective in preventing rolling and has reduced the likelihood of exhaustion and PPD for thousands of new parents. In early 2018, many of the US’s most forward-thinking companies began offering SNOOs as a benefit for new-parent employees. In addition to supporting staff as they transition to parenting life, the program improves retention and workplace productivity and reduces fatigue-related errors, accidents, and health costs. SNOO is being evaluated in over 12 universities (including Monash University) to prevent/treat postpartum depression; reduce dangerous bed sharing in the hospital and improve care of babies with Narcotics Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).
