1. SNOO Smart Sleeper, Happiest Baby
This product is definitely one thing I wished that I would have had as a first-time parent. The SNOO is a smart sleeper/bassinet that comes with bells, whistles, white noise, you name it, you got it. This bassinet can feel when your baby is restless. It will begin rocking your baby and playing white noise, to calm your baby back to sleep. Crazy right? Well that’s not all! This bassinet adds at least one extra hour to your baby’s sleep by rocking your baby and playing white noise. It also comes with a SNOO sack that is attached to safety clips, these clips secure your newborn safely on their back so they do not roll. This is the only bed to meet American Pediatric safe sleep standards. This bassinet even has its very own app. This app is easily customizable with gentle preemie or newborn settings, followed by the weaning option, for crib transitioning. This app also tracks your baby’s progress in a sleep log and will alert parents if their baby needs attention, if they’re hungry or uncomfortable. Your newborn will begin to sleep better in 1-2 days! If your baby is older than 6 weeks, it may take about 3-8 days for them to sleep better. This bassinet is for babies up to 6 months old or 25 pounds. When they can easily get on their hands and knees, it’s time for a crib. This is by far the best new baby product for first-time parents.
