The first night I strapped my newborn into the SNOO I’ll admit I felt a bit apprehensive. Connected to an app, the WiFi enabled cot responds to your little one’s cries, rocking and playing white noise to send them off to sleep. I watched as the bed swayed, my tiny baby strapped down and zipped into the swaddle. The high-tech design (and the swaddle) took a bit of getting used to, but after a few nights it quickly became apparent why other parents rave about the SNOO so much. Firstly, it’s one of the safest infant beds on the market, keeping your baby in the lie-flat position to help prevent SIDS. Secondly, the rocking, the swaddle, and the white noise cleverly mimic the womb – which in our case magically helped to settle a colicky baby. As first-time parents, we also loved the fact that the app keeps track of your baby’s sleep and also sends you sleep advice – which proved to be a sanity-saver in those first few weeks. Believe the hype, this cot really does have it all – style, safety and the ability to give everyone a good night’s sleep.
