Love it!

published

As a paranoid, FTM to twins, it was a no brainer to get some sort of breathing monitor for them. We chose this as it is so easy to use and can be used in bassinets, pram, car seat etc. We have had it for 3 weeks now and have not had any false alarms. My babies don't notice it and it helps keep my mind at ease during the night. Would 100% recommend to any parent.

Purchased in May 2019 at Angel Maternity Online store for $140.00.

This product saved my daughter’s life. ER nurse review

published

This product saved my preemie daughter’s life. She was sleeping when the apnea alarm sounded, I found her slightly blue and shallow breathing. It woke me up and I was able to stimulate her and intervene in a terrible situation. Without this monitor to alarm me, my daughter might not be alive today. Thank you snuza. You truly save lives. Emergency Room Nurse approved!

Purchased in June 2018 for $99.00.

Peace of mind

published

This is a must have. Great device, easy to use. Peace of mind knowing it has the in-built vibration feature to rouse baby when respiratory rate falls. Although would like the alarm noise to be louder. Very compact and seems to be gentle on the baby's skin. Would recommend to new parents.

Good for peace of mind in the early days

published

I really liked using this product when I was still in hospital with my baby (and before I could use the sensor pads). The only tricky part was when my baby still had her cord and clip attached and it was hard to find a good position to clip it on. It only went off falsely two or three times when she moved.


Can not live with out this product.

published

Really easy to use. Means we know she is safe after a scare early on. I would recommend this to any new parents. Means you can also get good sleep when they do. It had only gone off once was a false alarm because of the position. Absolutely love this product


Perfect would definitely recommend

published

With my first son I barely slept because he had breathing difficulties so I was always paranoid he would stop breathing while I was asleep. For my second son I purchased the snuza hero and it has been amazingly comforting knowing that not only does it vibrate to wake my baby if he stops breathing but an alarm will sound to wake me. I've had it for 6 months and it has worked when it has needed to and we've only had false alarms when it has fallen off from him being a wiggle worm. I would definitely recommend this product it is easy to use and reliable

Best thing I bought for baby

published

This provides so much peace of mind, I sleep so much easier knowing it's on. I have only had two false alerts, one when I just started using it and positioned it wrong and one when I was holding him sideways so there was no contact.

Highly recommend this product.

Provides peace of mind

published

This is an excellent product and I wouldn't be without it. My bub is now 6 months old and so I initially thought that I would probably stop using the snuza soon. I'm really glad that I continued to use it as it turns out that since my bub has started moving more in his sleep (occasionally I find him facing down into his mattress), there have been several incidents of him not breathing for 15 seconds (at least 3 this week) and one alarm. I have no doubt that on the few occasions he stopped breathing, the rouse alarm must have worked. I'm definitely going to continue to use this for some time yet. I've only just replaced the battery after more than 4 months of use. Would recommend to any new parent!

Would not live without the peace of mind

published

We lost our 5 week old son to SIDS in September 2015. We now have his baby brother, and we are PARANOID. This has saved our sanity!
We test it every time we change his nappy.
Take it off, and you can guarantee, it will alarm unless we either turn it off, or clip it on to ourself.
Best thing I have ever encounted!

Fantastic

published

This has been a sleep saver for me. I use it whenever my daughter sleeps. It is so easy to use and gives me peace of mind. Loud enough to wake me up but not everyone else in the house.
I check everyday that it functions properly by putting it on the bench and making sure it goes off.


Love the Snuza Hero!

Provides extra piece of mind.

published

So easy to use, just clip onto nappy or pants and switch it on. I bought one because my son decided to start sleeping on his tummy and would often face plant the mattress. I found myself worrying about his breathing so bought this as extra reassurance to go with his regular monitor.

Amazing !! So glad I purchased it

published

Being a new mum he one thing I was scared of was my son stopping breathing... I was constantly awake terrified of the worst.. Even the midwives were telling me the monitors wig the breathing bad would give me more anxiety as they get false alarms. The Snuza lets me get a good nights sleep knowing that the only thing that can set for the alarm is my baby stopping breathing. This has made me so at peace in my mind and I am not so anxious anymore. I would highly reccomend this to any mum...

Real piece of mind for a new Mum

published

As new parents we were constantly checking on our baby through the night. Since we started using this it has given us real piece of mind and the ability to get some quality sleep.
It is very easy to set and turn off. Easily clips on to the nappy and baby doesn't notice. Only 1 false alarm early on when we didn't attach it to baby's nappy properly, but if anything that gave us even more assurance about the reliability of the product.
Our baby doesn't move much during his sleep yet so haven't been impacted like other reviewers by movement and rolling on to their stomach. Even if/when that happens, we feel the cost was worth it for the extra sleep and peace of mind we've gotten from having it so far.
Overall we would highly recommend.

Peace of mind!! Good customer service

published

I bought a Snuza online and there was an issue with the on button. The Australian distributor sent me a new one and a reply paid to return the faulty one. I got it within days.

I'm paranoid so always thinking the worst will happen. The Snuza saved me! I had it before bub was born but didn't get it out and use it for a couple of weeks - I don't know why, maybe it was just that one extra thing to remember or so many new things all at once. I would CONSTANTLY feel the need to check if she was breathing, etc. once I started using the Snuza I felt like I could relax. I wished I had used it from the start. Anyway current battery has lasted about 7m. Bub is 8m and still happy to have it on. Back sleeper, no rolling during the night.

Saved my sleep!

published

I'm totally in love with this! My baby is almost a month old and she wears it when we go to sleep at night, it's the only reason I ever get any sleep! Knowing if something happens I'll know. We've never had a false alarm and the battery is still full.

Questions & Answers

Ceej

Ceejasked

I’m having a bit of trouble getting my snuza to stay put! My 4 month old now sleeps through the night resulting in a full nappy by the early hours of the morning, this then causes the snuza to dislodge enough for the sensor to not touch enough and set the alarm off. I have found after using this i now have anxiety if he’s not wearing it but would like to continue to use. Is there a way to get it to sit better? Like Velcro or something?

Good question! I only used the Snuza hero when my daughter was a newborn and now we use breathing sensor pads under her mattress. Velcro may work but I haven't tried it! Sorry!

Hey i found the best way was wearing tights over a top that buttoned at the crotch then i would just clip it on his pants. Hope this helps!


Jaymee

Jaymeeasked

Hi, I’m wanting to buy a monitor that I can use while baby sleeps in his swing. Does this monitor detect bubs breathing if he is in the swing that moves constantly? Or will it pick up the movement of the swing? If your product doesn’t work while the baby is in something that moves, do you know of any other monitor that will? Thanks

Hi Jaymee, the Snuza detects the motion of the baby's tummy going up and down so I'm sure it would be fine in a swing. Basically you clip it onto the baby's nappy and each time the tip touches the stomach (as the stomach rises and falls) it senses movement. I hope that helps!

Does the Snuza work if attached to the back of baby's nappy if he sleeps on his tummy?

Im actually not sure. Our boy is 9 months old now and only uses it at night. We still have it on the front of his nappy even though he sleeps on his tummy now.
