How to Unpair a Snoo

If you have an unused Snoo, you might want to unpair it before selling or returning it. This will disable the Snoo from your WiFi network. To do this, open the Snoo app, tap on the menu icon and then choose settings. From there, tap on ‘Unpair’.

Sleep expert Dr Harvey Karp has built his career on helping parents calm and soothe newborns, and the Snoo is the flagship product from his parenting empire Happiest Baby. It automates his “5 S’s” (swaddle, sway, side-to-side motion, soothing rocking and white noise) and applies them based on your baby’s escalating cries.

It’s expensive, but the company’s 30-day risk-free guarantee is a great selling point. It’s also possible to rent one for 4-6 months at a cost of $159/month plus a reconditioning fee (check the Happiest Baby website for special offers).

There are some concerns about using a snoo, including the possibility that it could encourage babies to become dependent on it. This could lead to problems if they are used to sleeping in it during nap times, too. In addition, some parents worry that it might negatively impact bonding with their baby. While bonding traditions vary based on culture and parental style, most new moms know that tending to their crying baby at night often involves feeding, diaper changes and movement, warmth and vocal assurance that everything is OK. All of these things are hard to do from a Snoo.
