Sleep is precious. And if your baby isn’t getting it, neither are you.
It’s one of the reasons some people are willing to shell out nearly $1,500 for a bassinet (the Snoo) that supposedly helps your baby sleep better.
I’ve tried the Snoo – we rented it for a month when our 3 month old would only nap in our arms. It’s impressive in the way that it works, and it’s a stylish looking piece of furniture.
But ultimately, we returned it for 2 reasons:
1) It was too damn expensive. Not that we couldn’t afford it, but it didn’t seem worth the money.
2) It didn’t seem to do much for us over other similar (less expensive) options.
With all of that said, I know some parents rave about the Snoo, so I’m not going to say it doesn’t work or that it’s not worth the money. Lots of parents praise its effectiveness and I know it has helped infants sleep better.
What if we told you there are some good Snoo alternatives that won’t break the bank?
Granted, you aren’t going to find anything exactly like the Snoo for less money, but there are bassinets out there that work just as well.
We did the research. Let’s check ’em out.
