I have been sooooo excited to share this post because I stand behind it so much.
When we brought Roo home, she was tiny. We are talking 5 pounds tiny. So we slept with her in our bed with the Dock-a-Tot for the first few weeks. Once she got a little bigger, we finally were ready to try out the SNOO.
I want to start by saying that I know it’s pricey. But it is worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY.
Roo loves to be swaddled, and what baby doesn’t love to be rocked, am I right? So the SNOO comes with a body sack that velcros (is that a verb?) their hands down and has their legs zipped in. It is breathable and lightweight.
I read in an article some time ago to put your baby to bed awake because then they help themselves fall asleep, so we have been trying that method with the SNOO. We lay her down with just a kimono top on (because she kicks out of her footies and wakes herself up) and turn on the SNOO, which has a built in relaxing sound as well the rocking motion. If she cries, it will pick up speed in hopes to calm them, but most the time she just falls asleep. She has consistently slept 6-8 hours a night and I truly think it is because of the SNOO.
I’ve asked Trent to give his opinion below also, so that you can see it is not just me blowing smoke!
Trent here: Em’s only saying these things because she’s getting paid! Jokes. The SNOO has been a life-saver because it puts Rooney to sleep and keeps her asleep. The biggest thing for me is that it’s connected to an app that allows us to control the rocking speed based on her mood, so we don’t have to wake her up to rock her. Two thumbs up from this guy.
Feel free to ask questions if you have any!!!
