Since launch, the Snoo Bassinet has proven to be one of Baboodle’s most in demand products. After a quick search online, it’s not hard to see why the Snoo, which promises to help babies sleep better by imitating the soothing motion and sound of the womb, has such a buzz around it. But given the Snoo’s high retail price, consumers are right to ask ‘will the Snoo Smart Sleeper actually work for me?’
At Baboodle, we’ve rented out over 100 Snoo Bassinets to customers in the UK, and gathered some interesting insights on how likely it is that the Snoo will work for you and your baby.
Will the Snoo Bassinet actually work for you?
Of the 113 Snoos rented in the past 6 months, 66% rentals were extended, 30% were returned before the expected rental return date, with the rest only being used for a short rental term.
So what factors might influence whether the Snoo bassinet works for you and your baby? Here are a few things to consider:
Age and weight
The Snoo bassinet is designed for babies up to 6 months old or 25 pounds, whichever comes first. It's important to note that the Snoo is not intended to be a long-term sleep solution for babies. As babies grow and develop, they will eventually outgrow the Snoo bassinet and need to transition to a crib or other sleep environment. All the more reason to rent rather than buy!
Every baby is different, and some may prefer different types of sleep environments. While the Snoo bassinet's motion and sound may be soothing to some babies, others may find it overstimulating or uncomfortable.
The Snoo bassinet is designed to help soothe babies back to sleep when they wake up during the night. If you prefer to attend to your baby immediately when they cry, the Snoo bassinet may not align with your parenting style.
Overall, the Snoo can be a great tool for helping babies sleep better. With a 66% success rate amongst our subscribers, we’re confident you’ll get some well deserved sleep. On the off chance that your baby doesn’t take to your Snoo, our subscriptions offer ultimate flexibility, allowing you to rest easy knowing that if your baby doesn’t, you can return the Snoo to us, where we’ll deep clean it and send it on it’s way to it’s new home.
