    I bought this for my daughter and her brand new son. She uses it EVERYDAY and absolutely L❤️VES it❣ She’s an RN, she’s pretty much seen everything that can unfortunately happy to an infant plus her friend lost their baby to SIDS just recently at only 4 months. Needless to say between all of that, she’s beyond the normal jittery Momma, I tell her she is absolutely paranoid and making things WAY too hard on herself due to this. Come the second baby she’ll see what I’m talking about and won’t be such a freak, lol. BUT this does work VERY good and helps calm her down as well. She’s finally getting some sleep between having the Snuzza on him and the Video Monitor too. It is well worth the money. The shipper was FaNtAStiC too, I explained the situation a little and she went out of her way to go mail it so my daughter would get it quickly. Awesome all the way around‼️ A+++

    I loved this baby monitor. I was so afraid of SIDS that I needed to be sure that my baby was still breathing and this monitor put my mind at ease so I wasn’t up all night checking to see if my baby was still breathing (first time mom moment). This monitor unlike most of the other ones clip onto the diaper with a rubber piece touching the baby so it detects movement rather than a mat etc that the other brands have. It was great for travel, my in laws lived 4 hours away so when the baby was a newborn I would use it in the car on long trips to see grandma. The alarm was very sensitive and loud enough to wake you, at first it will give a little vibration to try to startle the baby to create movement before the alarm goes off and if that doesn’t work it will go off until you stop it. It is perfect for newborns rights up until they start moving a lot then they will either start tugging at it or when they move in their sleep it will fall off and the alarm will go off waking them and you. I recommend this monitor to everyone, but I also recommend buying an extra battery to go with it. Although the battery that comes with it lasts for a long time, I did have to replace mine and I had a hard time finding them in stores so I bought one online.

    Our little girl was born 12 months ago, and I wish I had had this the day I brought her home from the hospital. The peace of mind it gives me has helped me relax and get the much needed sleep every new mom requires. Some parents may feel at ease laying their babies down without a monitor like this one, and I am sure the vast majority are just fine, but a member of my extended family lost a 15 month old to SIDS a few years ago (later than normal, but does happen) and knowing this, we were extra cautious with our precious little girl. I purchased my first Snuza Hero on Amazon for $109 and had nothing but problems with it. It went off constantly, even with me holding and shaking it, the alarm wouldn’t shut off without my taking the battery out (not the simplest undertaking, btw), and it even lit up as breathing while sitting by itself on a still kitchen table. I contacted the company and was informed that something must be faulty with it, and then exchanged it through Amazon. They were right about mine simply being a faulty minority. My second Snuza was perfect. I clip it to her Diaper before a nap, or a long car ride, or before sitting her in her Mamaroo (knowing she will doze off and on), and even in her swing. Through trial and error and a year of experience, I have learned to trust that this monitor is catching her breathing and not the motion of her surroundings. It is so loud that if it goes off, I can easily hear it from another room. I have the option of making it tick loudly every time she takes a breath. I don’t take advantage of that option, but love that when my husband and I sit down to watch a movie, I can see her green light lighting up with each breath, so we don’t have to keep checking on her and can enjoy relaxing together. Occasionally, as she rolls, it does come away from her skin and buzz, waking her a little, but she is so used to the monitor that she goes right back to sleep. Other times, the sensor goes off as if she has stopped breathing (due to bad contact), which might annoy some people. I feel that every time it does this, it is further proving that if she ever DID need it to work, it absolutely would. She sometimes sleeps on her tummy now, and I am comfortable with this because I can clip it to the back of her diaper and feel she is protected. Because of this monitor, I can take naps while she does with confidence that she is okay. I can let her snooze on long car rides without climbing back and forth to check on her constantly. I can spend more uninterrupted time with my husband without us worrying and checking on her. I can have a shower or leave the room while she naps to do a chore without running back and forth. Like I said, the peace of mind is wonderful and knowing if it ever really was needed it would work and alert me immediately makes it so worth using. No, she hasn’t had an actual need for this monitor and could have been done without. However, it would have been a stressful year of careful watching and wondering and much less sleep. I love this monitor and have purchased 2 more (on eBay this time, due to price and availability) for our twins that will be here in September. Hopefully they never “need” theirs either, but I do believe that if they ever do, I can trust these little devices to let me know immediately, which makes me feel so much more relaxed as a new mom. I recommend these to everyone with a baby still in the window for SIDs and for any new parent who needs a little extra peace of mind.

    This is a must have. I would not be sleeping well without it.Some people complain about false alarms. Oh well! I would rather have a false alarm every single night than a baby that stopped breathing. And those false alarms are only caused by the device not being attached properly or it coming loose, which is a result of it not being attached properly… See where I’m going with this?If you are like me and super paranoid about SIDS, get this. I will never NOT use this. I would pay way more for it too. Do not hesitate. Buy it for your peace of mind. Oh and I am not being paid for my review or anything. I am a mom of a 4.5 month old and I just simply love this product and want others to know how wonderful it is too!

    My baby is 11 weeks old and I’ve used the snuza without any issues up until this morning. It gave him HUGE blister. I put the snuza on around 9pm when my baby went to sleep and removed it at 6:30am when he woke. He was extra squirmy last night but I still don’t think a product for babies should cause blisters.

    Bought this for my great grandson who was born Jan. 16. His Mother was so happy as we have had 2 cases of SIDS around here recently. Finally got it to her 4 days after I received it. She is very happy with it and feels so much better at night when he has it on. She said she can finally get a good nights rest knowing he has it on.

    It works great. I had one before for when my baby was a newborn, but that one got lost at daycare. I bought a second one and she is now 6 months old. I have it on her when she is sleeping. I also have a little camera/monitor in the room for when I step out to do chores or workout. The Snuza Hero and camera/monitor together are perfect. I use the two of them together when I am in the next room working out. Great product!

    This has literally been the best purchase I have made for our daughter. She has stopped breathing a few times in her sleep. Twice was just long enough for the vibration to wake her. So the alarm didnt go off, but it made her breath. The light was blinking red when she woke later on so thats how I even knew. The other time she stopped breathing and It sounded the alarm. I had to gently shake her to get her to breath again.I honeslty dont know that she would be here, if we didnt have this on her. She is 3 months old and weve been using it since she was a week old. It gives us peace of mind at night knowing that shes got something on her that will gently wake her, or us, if she stops breathing.

  22. Casey

    I wish I had the box to return this. I’m so disappointed, we get SEVERAL false alarms a night, to the point where we’ve stopped using it. I have more peace of mind without it. Pretty sure I ripped a C section stitch flying out of bed to check on her so many times. Thanks Snuza.

  23. Martine

    Extremely disappointingBaby moves during sleep which causes the device to loosen up and beeps since it does mot feel movementNot worth it

  24. Samantha

    I cannot sing the praises of this little device enough. If you are struggling with postpartum anxiety, the Snuza is a lifesaver – worth EVERY penny (and every false alarm!). After losing my daughter 2 days before my due date to stillbirth, I was frantic with terror that our son (born a year later) would die suddenly and inexplicably as well. If not for the Snuza, I don’t think I would have slept the entire first year of his life. And now almost 4 years later with our second daughter, even though my PPA is much better this time around, it still just takes SUCH a weight off knowing she’s wearing it. I really cannot recommend this product enough, especially for anyone who has lost a child and is terrified of it happening again. Yes, some cases of SIDS may not be preventable, but at the very least you’ll know you did everything in your power to save your baby (and if you’re already living with a lifetime of guilt over another loss, you know how much that is worth!).There are a lot of cool monitors on the market these days (much more so than when we bought our Snuza 4 years ago), but I still would choose this over the others for several reasons. First, the simplicity – it’s a small, portable, self-contained, mechanical (no bluetooth/wifi/electrical waves) monitor with no cords, no connectivity issues, no recharging, etc. Unlike other products, you don’t have to worry about it syncing with your phone, there are no extra parts or potentially strangling cords to keep track of, and you can bring it anywhere. It’s very straightforward to use, gives you just the information you need, and is very reliable. Not to mention the price is a fraction of some of the other options out there.Of course, no product is perfect, and this one is not without its drawbacks. That being said, we’ve found workable solutions for pretty much every issue we’ve run into. In case it’s helpful to anyone else, here is a rundown of the top issues and the solutions we’ve used:Issue: Too big to use on newborn diaper, especially while umbilical cord stump is in the waySolution: Make a Snuza pocket onesie (see photo for example). It’s very easy and works like a charm – simply take a snug-fitting onesie, grab a patch of extra fabric (something stiff-ish works best) and cut it into a small pocket just big enough to slide the Snuza clip into (you may want to fold over the top edge a few times to give it a thicker part to clip onto more securely), then sew/glue the pocket on the onesie so that the Snuza will sit on chest just above the umbilical cord stump. Put this under your baby’s sleep sack and you’re golden. (If the light seems to be flashing too bright in baby’s face, a few layers of painter’s tape will do the trick to dim it so it’s not obnoxious.)Issue: Battery problems (dead on arrival, hard to find replacements, replacements don’t last)Solution: We got burned by this twice (ended up with a dead Snuza for the first week of our child’s life), so don’t do what we did. About a week before your baby is due, test your Snuza and make sure it’s working. Even if it seems great, order a set of backup batteries and put them in your hospital bag now (with my son, our Snuza magically died in the days before he was born, and we didn’t have a backup on hand). If you already have backup batteries, test them out before packing (with our daughter, we thought we were good with the 10 leftover batteries we had in the house – turns out they all magically died in storage in the preceding years!); actually, test them even if they’re new (and then we accidentally ordered the wrong replacement batteries, sigh). Unfortunately the batteries are hard to find (we’ve only been able to get them from Amazon) and the ones sold on Amazon have terrible reviews – we have not found a solution to that, but luckily we haven’t really experienced the issues others are reporting so it’s been okay.Issue: False alarmsSolution: This bothers my husband way more than it bothers me – in my opinion, any number of false alarms is well worth the alternative of not catching a true emergency, so the top “solution” here is to just adjust your perspective (easier said than done when sleep-deprived, I know). That being said, depending on *why* you’re getting false alarms, there are options. First, if it just won’t stay on the diaper, try the Snuza pocket onesie idea above – may even work for an older baby who’s rolling a lot or whose diaper gets too full overnight and loosens the Snuza (this started happening to us when my son got closer to a year and was sleeping through the night). I’ve also seen videos on YouTube of a DIY strap/belt that goes on top of the diaper. My other tip here is to get the Snuza Hero (not the cheaper model) b/c the vibration feature gives you a chance to turn it off *before* the alarm sounds and wakes the whole house (though my kids seem to sleep through the alarm anyway!) – I got really good at hearing the vibration in my sleep and quickly reaching over to deactivate it (right through the sleep sack) before checking on baby. Of course this won’t work if your baby sleeps in a different room, but something to consider if you’re really having a lot of false alarms and are committed to finding a solution.And really those are the only drawbacks we’ve found, again all with at least semi-workable solutions, and to my mind at least, well worth the peace of mind you get from the device. I recommend the Snuza to every new parent and will be using it with all of my kids for sure.

    I bought this product after the death of my son. I had a hard time trusting that his twin sister was ok. After approximately 1 month the battery seemed to die on my Snuza. I replaced it but the unit still didn’t work. I contacted the company and they did not stand by their product. I should have written this 3 years ago when it happened but I was too distraught. We got a hospital pulse ox instead.With this baby we bought an owlet instead and have had no issues with it. I would stay away from Snuza. They just want to sell you a unit. They don’t care if it works.

    We originally tried the much more expensive sock-based competitor (Owl*t), which was absolutely terrible; ridden w/ false alarms and much too complicated for our preference. That got returned, and we tried this instead. The Snuza Hero SE works wonderfully, and is extremely simple. No apps, no connection issues, no repeated false alarms… just pure functionality. I’d recommend this to any parent.

    The Snuza is the best thing I have bought for my daughter! The only thing I regret is that I didn’t have it from day one. I waited and bought it after three days of not sleeping because I was watching her breathe all night. I bought another more expensive monitor and still couldn’t sleep because there was no way to test it to see if it was actually working. With the snuza, you can test it every single time before you put it on your baby by simply setting it on a flat service and waiting on the alarm to go off. That gave me the most peace of mind. You also don’t have to worry about it connecting to a base or WiFi in order for it to work. I have slept great each night knowing the snuza works which has made me a happier during the day and able to enjoy each little moment with my baby!

    My son has reflux issues and whenever he is on his back he is gagging. When I put him in his stomach he sleeps good. I bought this so I wouldn’t have to watch him sleep. I tried this on myself to see what triggered it. I had to be perfectly still and hold my breath in order for it to alert me. I watch it light up with each breath he takes. I haven’t had any false alarms. The only time it has gone off is when he rolled over. I love this device. I seen it was FSA eligible after I paid for it.I saw someone post their baby got a blister from it being on the babies skin so I keep a thin onesie on and it works

    We had previously purchased the Owlet monitor for my first child but I wanted something different with my second. After much research I decided on the Snuza Hero. It isnt recommended for co-sleeping or bed-sharing but it surely works for us. I believe they don’t recommend it because they say the monitor might pick up the motion of the parent(s). This isn’t the case with us. I tested it and it only picks up her breathing motions. The noise level is good. I’ve had the monitor accidentally moved because I burped her and the alarm sounded after I laid her back down. It woke me up instantly but baby didn’t get too scared. Great product!

    After losing my last child to SIDS, needless to say, when my daughter came, I couldn’t sleep so I purchased Snuza Hero and am so glad I did!! The baby doesn’t even notice the monitor on her diaper, and I have only recieved one false alarm in 6 consecutive months of use. Battery life is excellent. Instructions are easy to understand. Comes w plastic case for traveling. Would definitely reccomend for parents who want piece of mind.

    This item has given me peace of mind and allows me to sleep soundly at night. I’m a paranoid first time mom.My son at a very young age decided that he preferred to sleep on his stomach. He could roll onto his belly but not back to his back. Also, when he sleeps through the night, I don’t. I’m constantly checking to make sure he’s alive. LOL The SNUZA has changed that.It is easy to get false alarms, because the monitor can easily come loose especially if your baby is an active sleeper. (I don’t mind the occasional false alarm, because I know the monitor works. The first false alarm is intense though). We minimized false alarms by using an elastic band. We cut the band off of a pair of his pants and we clip the monitor to that. My little guy is big enough now that he can pull the monitor off, but for the most part, he leaves it alone.The first alarm is very low. I have never been able to hear it over the monitor, but the second alarm is loud enough to wake you up. The alarm doesn’t wake my baby up for some reason. LOLWe chose this over an Owlet because:1) There isn’t any extra pieces (base, plugs, wires, etc). This is one piece. It’s portable and takes a battery. If the power goes out or if I don’t have access to electricity, this monitor will still work.2) No WiFi or Bluetooth signals.3) This alarm will notify you after 15 seconds if there isn’t any movement from your baby. The other brand monitor will notify you when oxygen levels get to an extreme low, which is when it’s already too late. At 15 seconds, I can artificially provide oxygen to my baby via CPR if necessary without allowing oxygen levels to become that low.4) I read about babies getting skin burns from the other brand.We bought this item through Amazon, but it appeared used, so we returned it and bought one from an actual retail store.

    I have a big baby boy. I used the product when he was between 13 to 14 pounds. However, the Snuza is too big. If you place the product on the baby and you need to have this one on your chest (straight on you when you are standing) it will cause pressure on the belly. It is also not convenient to be placed on the diaper. We are now using an alternative product that snaps on the clothe and it is way better. No need to change when swapping diaper. Also, the clip is so big that it causes a gap between the skin and the diaper. It is a flaw and overflow could occurs.The pro is that you have a continual signal that the baby is breathing, but the lack of connectivity with a mobile phone is perceived to me. I wish to get more statistic on the baby. Overall, we had to return the product and use something a little more more expensive that is more convenient.

    This little thing is small and fit the size of our newborn but I wasn’t a huge fan of how hard it pushed into his stomach. The little rubber piece was a little more solid than flexible and I personally thought it would be uncomfortable for the little guy. It was also a huge hassle because every diaper change you need to swap it out to the new diaper and newborns go through a lot of diapers! In the middle of the night I had a tendency to just take it off because it was just too much effort to keep messing with it.In the end, I spent the money and got an owlet smart sock because you put it on and then you don’t have to mess with it until morning. The sock also gave me feedback about just how well he was sleeping which I ended up liking way more than I thought I would.Closing thoughts: If you absolutely need some sort of monitoring system but can’t afford the owlet then this would work, but I ended up not using it because it required a lot of effort to make it functional on a newborn.
