SNOO Smart Sleeper ($1,295), created by Dr. Harvey Karp of The Happiest Baby on the Block fame, continues to lead the pack. It's the first bassinet that actually promises a good night's sleep — for everyone. It does this by incorporating Dr. Karp's famed five S's into product form: swaddle, side or stomach, shush, swing, and suck.
A beautiful sleeper on its own with a modern wood and mesh design, the bassinet features a mattress that produces white noise and "swings" up to one half inch each direction to help lull babies to sleep. Hidden microphones detect a waking baby and signal the sleeper to respond with increasing sound and motion, essentially providing the same response parents would when a newborn fusses in the middle of the night. So the next time someone asks about your night, you'll have nothing to say: you and your baby were asleep the whole time.
