Snuza Hero baby monitor is a wearable device which attaches to your baby's diaper and monitors your baby's abdominal movements. The Hero detects the slightest of movements and will alert you if abdominal movement is weak or less than eight movements per minute. If the Snuza Hero detects no abdominal movement for 15 seconds it will vibrate in an effort to rouse your baby to resume abdominal movements. Often the vibration is enough to rouse the infant and Hero will revert to monitoring mode. However, after three vibration/rousing incidents, a Rouse Warning will alert you that movement has stopped for 15 seconds on three occasions. If an additional 5 seconds of no abdominal movement is detected a sharp audible alarm will sound.
I bought two of these for my preemie twins. Being that they were born at 27 weeks, I knew I was going to be a nervous wreck at night and get no sleep. So far, I have only been able to use one because baby b is still in the nicu. These devices are a godsend and I honestly don't know how I functioned without it with my previous children. The light can be seen through a swaddle blanket and the adjustable ticking noise allows me to go right back to sleep without scrambling to her bedside. I've noticed it can shift easily but my baby is so small it still in the vicinity of her stomach and we have had no false alarms because of it. Ive literally only used this for a week so I can't comment on battery life or any other issues that may occur but take it from a momma of 5, you will not regret this purchase.
We purchased this for our newborn once she started sleeping in her crib in her nursery. It was less expensive than some other options but serves the purpose we need it to and works well. She is swaddled so it works well now. We will see how it works once she is sleeping without a swaddle and if she sleeps on her belly. It's very easy to use and pretty small. I would highly recommend this for a peace of mind in the middle of the night. Be aware, you cannot see the flashing green light on most baby monitors and sometimes we struggle to see it through the swaddle but can hear the alarm through both.
LOVE the snuza. Gives me peace of mind every night when going to bed. My son is one month old and has worn it every night since we came home from the hospital. It allows me to fall asleep easily once I see the flashing green light on his little body. The light is easily seen through clothing and even with a Halo sleep sack on. Colored clothing can make it a little more difficult to see, so we typically put our son to sleep in white clothing underneath his sleep sack. Alarm is loud enough to wake you but not super loud. We’ve had a few false alarms from the snuza not being placed properly, but at least I know it’s working properly! Great product for new moms. I prefer this over the owlet - I think I’d be glued to my phone watching his vitals and the snuza is a better price point with no network requirements. Would highly recommend!
I would expect something like this to cost more than it does because of how important something like this is. I purchased two of these for my twin boys after they left the NICU. These monitors provide peace of mind without being dependent upon a network or my phone which I really like. I also like how the monitors aren't invasive, my boys would definitely let me know if they were uncomfortable but with these, they have had no issues!
Works the way it's supposed to, easy to use. I was afraid it would alarm falsely and keep me awake worrying but it only did that once or twice and that was only because I didn't clip it on the diaper well and it wasn't getting good contact with his belly. Gives me peace of mind. Great battery life! It's been 5 months of using it every night and I haven't had to replace the battery yet.
