Snuza Hero gives mom of preemie renewed confidence

09/14/2014

My baby was born two month premature and spent almost five weeks in the NICU after she was born.

I had purchased the Snuza while pregnant, but didn't realize how grateful I would be to have it. Shortly after her discharge she had one more apnea or bradycardia incident at home but the Snuza caught the incident and we were able to rub her belly and stimulate her. The pediatrician wanted to readmit her after the incident, however we had enough confidence in the device that we brought her home and she hasn't had another incident since. Our baby wears her Snuza 24 hours a day -- we only remove it at bath time and during diaper changes. As you can see, she even wears it while awake at the beach! Thank you for creating the most wonderful product baby product ever!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Snuza for watching our son

"This morning my son stopped breathing in his sleep while both of us were asleep..."

I do not usually write product reviews, good or bad, even if Amazon is the place we primarly buy ... well everything.
However I feel the need to write here to say how much buying this product has been the best decision we made. This morning my son stopped breathing in his sleep while both of us were asleep. The snuza alarm went off and woke us up instantly - we were both a the crib instantly. The baby was not breathing, he probably went into deep sleep - we managed to quickly wake him up and all is fine... but I am so grateful for the Snuza. It's priceless to us. I don't even want to think about what could have happend if we did not have it.

"Awesome for anxious parents"

"My favorite part is the light that goes off with every movement"

My husband and I are the kind of parents who jump out of bed and hover over a newborn/infant until we see or hear them breathe... All night and even day, during naps. So, we love this little gadget. My favorite part is the light that goes off with every movement and the option to have an audible beep sound off as well. The light is bright enough to show through all the clothes I have had on my son so far and even through his lightweight swaddle blankets, though it is hard to see with all those layers. We have used this for a few weeks now and no false alarms.

"This monitor is extremely portable..."

"Ive finally gotten sleep"

First off the monitor is extremely portable. I've been able to easily take it with me out to grandma and grandpas to use out there. Secondly, I've finally gotten sleep because I trust this monitor so much. I tested it a few times to make sure the alarm went off without movement and not only does it go off it vibrates on the baby's belly as well. I have and will continue to to recommend this product to new moms.

The Snuza Monitor, "Best gift ever!"

10/26/2015

Worth every penny!

I received the Snuza Hero portable movement monitor as a shower gift this summer. I never realized until after the baby was born just how wonderful this gift really was. We use it every day all day. It gives us such peace of mind.  All you have to do is clip the monitor onto the baby's diaper and turn it on!  We had 1 or 2 false alarms where the alarm went off due to the monitor not having contact with the baby's belly... After running in to check to make sure everything is ok... I adjusted the monitor and had complete peace of mind knowing that it worked. I just bought 2 other monitors to give as shower gifts to friends and family! It was the best gift that I received! Worth every penny!

"I can finally sleep peacefully!"

"I used to check on her regularly..."

I recently started to use this monitor with my daughter and it has helped me rest easily now during her naps and overnight sleep! I used to check on her regularly because I was only using a sound monitor and wanted to see for myself that she was ok. After using the Snuza monitor, I no longer worry! The instructions were easy to follow and setup was a breeze. I tested the product on myself to ensure that it worked properly and it only took minutes to feel comfortable using it on my daughter. I would highly recommend Snuza to my friends and family!

"A must have!"

"Love it, gives me such peace of mind."

It did go off 2 times my with my grandchild who is 6 weeks old. The vibration startled her to breath luckily. Every parent should have one to help eliminate SIDS. I am a Nurse and I 100% endorse this product.

Outstanding Product

"I love this product!

I love this product! As a new mom I was constantly checking on my baby throughout the night to make sure that she was ok and was thrilled when my sister told me about Snuza. I just attached the monitor to my baby's diaper and in that same week the alarm went off, saving my baby's life. If you're looking for a movement monitor, this is a MUST!

"Got my life back"

03/12/2013

As a person with SEVERE anxiety this item has changed my life!

I brought my son home from the hospital 3 weeks ago, he is my first child. I couldn't leave his side, fear and exhaustion consumed me! My biggest fear of course is SIDS. I know it is so rare, but if you suffer from anxiety you know the rarity doesn't ease the fear once it's in your mind. I found this product and had it overnighted, I didn't even mind the hefty shipping cost. It has been on my son non stop since then! It works really great! I turn on the beeper so I can hear his heart beat every time. I have gotten my life back! I can clean the house, leave the room, take a phone call with absolutely no worry! He still has his umbilical cord so positioning the device is a little harder than I'd like, but we manage. I would love for them to come out with one a little smaller, I'm sure eventually they will. I'm not sure how well it will work once he gets bigger and starts moving, but for now it has paid for itself times ten just by giving me two weeks of peace and SLEEP! If you are a worrier I can't Recommend this product enough! Trust me, it's worth the price!

I highly recommend this product

My baby was born two month premature and spent almost five weeks in the NICU after she was born.

I checked on my daughter one morning and she had stopped breathing, I picked her up and she slowly started again. If I ever wanted to sleep again I knew we'd have to get a breathing monitor. We chose the Snuza because it's portable and no installation needed. We have been thrilled with the product. It has woken her up to start breathing once, and gives me peace of mind. I highly recommend this product!

Snuza Hero proves it really is a little hero

2015/09/23 

Last night your product saved my sons life. His name is Landon and only 5 months old.

He fell into a deep sleep and stopped breathing. Without the snuza we would have lost him. Words can't describe the positive impacts your company has had on our family. 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Snuza mom sees her Snuza as a life saver!

04/17/2014

My son has laryngomalacia, this causes blue spells and for him to stop breathing in his sleep.

Snuza alarms me on a nightly bases when he is having trouble. I can't imagine how many times it's saved his life, and never want to imagine where we would be without this product! Thank you for being a life saver.

"I cannot put into words how grateful I am"

11/14/2014 

 I cannot put into words how grateful I am.

Last year I began looking for a product to monitor my unborn baby. She was due at the end of the year. I've always been concerned about SIDS because I lost my baby brother when I was nine.  I found the Snuza and was very excited. Unfortunately, we lost our baby (Julianna) due to a cord accident. Through Gods grace we got pregnant again at the beginning of the year. Gabriella was born 5 weeks early and went the NICU because her lungs were underdeveloped. It was easy seeing her there because she was protected and the alarms were set off if something was going on. Bringing her home was so stressful but thank God for the Snuza. I was able to sleep and be at peace knowing the alarm would go off if she stopped breathing. This is the best product for any parent with small children!!! Thank you for the hard work you put into devolving this product. I cannot put into words how grateful I am. Thank you.

"I'll actually get some sleep in the hospital post c section vs worrying constantly! thanks to Snuza"

04/25/2014

Now we are expecting number 4 and we will for sure be using Snuza again!!!

 I didn't hear about the Snuza until baby number 3!  For my first I was awake all hours of the night and had such little sleep because I had to watch him breathe the entire time.  I found the Snuza for baby 3 and loved it!  It's so nice and portable and we've given it as gifts and recommended it to many people.  Now we are expecting number 4 and we will for sure be using Snuza again!!!  I forgot to add that I even packed it in my diaper bag for the hospital and plan on putting it on her at the hospital, that's the beauty of having a portable breathing monitor.  I'll actually get some sleep in the hospital post c section vs worrying constantly!

Peace of mind for preemie mom

2015

This is incredibly awesome technology that saved my little one!

Snuza saved my Hailey! My daughter Hailey is a preemie so I definitely wanted to make sure we had peace of mind when we took her home. Two nights ago, I heard her Snuza go off. I rushed out of bed. She wasn't breathing. I was able to jostle her chest a little bit and she startled and woke up. What if the Snuza wasn't there? I shudder to think about that.

The Snuza Hero helps alert mom of motionless baby

07/30/2013

Thank You!!! Snuza saved my baby's life!

My 3 month old daughter was very fussy one morning but I had to get ready for work so I gave her her paci and put her in her bassinet. She got quiet and I just thought she was happy with her paci. While I was quickly getting ready for work her Snuza went off! I ran to her bassinet and she looked horrible. Completely motionless with her eyes wide open and glazed over. I thought she had died. I picked her up and she started breathing again. She has Severe acid reflux and the doctor said it probably got in her throat and obstructed her airway and it cleared when I picked her up. If it were not for her Snuza I would not have known she was in distress. She wears her Sunza 24 hours a day, and will continue to wear it until she figures out how to pull it off and throw it out of her crib!!!

"This little Purple Prince has been my saving grace more than once!"

03/23/2015

This little Purple Prince has been my saving grace more than once! 

Last week sometime we woke up with the alarm going off, took me a few seconds to register where the sound was coming from, luckily hubby clicked right away, my 8month old was not breathing. I picked him up and placed my hand softly on his belly and gave him a little jiggle and he started breathing. I dont even want to go into "What If's"!!!! The thought is enough to make me loose my mind! Hubby has finally found new respect for the Purple Prince! Thank you SNUZA!

"I'm seriously grateful for this product!"

05/14/2014

I am so in love with the Snuza!

I am so in love with the Snuza! I'm not kidding, I tell every new mom that this isn't just a luxury but actually a necessity. It's about time we put it away but we've used ours for 6 months. It's still going strong on it's original battery too. I'm seriously grateful for this product!

Grateful mom shares her Snuza story

05/17/2014

Thank you so much for Snuza.

I was so afraid to go to sleep the first few nights but Snuza helps me sleep through the night without having to worry too much about my baby girl!  And it saved my baby one time when she stopped breathing and we had to take her to the hospital! Thank you so much for Snuza.

Post natal anxiety is reduced with Snuza mom

10/23/2014

Thank you so much for Snuza.

My parents lost my brother to SIDS when he was just 6wks old. It has triggered pretty bad post natal anxiety for me after having all three of my children. My 1st we had on a mattress monitor and spent the 1st two weeks of her like convinced there was something wrong with her as the alarm kept going off... We didn't get another as we were scared of the same thing happening again. Our 2nd baby we still were to scared to use another monitor... Then when baby number 3 came along the anxiety was the worst it had ever been, I couldn't even put her in the car. Then I found Snuza! She always has it on, and mummy no longer spends her days staring at her tummy to make sure she is moving! We have never had a false alarm! It has been my life saver!

"I love that I have been able to have a good nights sleep every night"

10/15/2014 

Thank you so much for Snuza!

Every night she goes to sleep wearing her Snuza. I love that I have been able to have a good nights sleep every night and not worried and jumping up to check her every 5 minutes. We are able to take our Snuza away on holidays too. She has worn it every night since she was born 6 months ago tomorrow. I recommend it to all of my friends. Thanks Snuza!

Snuza Hero brings tears of relief to sleep deprived mom

04/03/2016

For our family it is as essential as the car seat!

 I remember when the UPS man delivered my daughter's Snuza. I hadn't slept in about 2 weeks straight and I cried with relief and hope knowing a tiny piece of technology would keep vigil over my baby so I could sleep for 3 hours straight before waking to nurse her. Getting a new one for this baby - for our family it is as essential as the car seat!
