Snuza Hero Baby Movement Monitor

Superior Sensor: Placed next to baby’s abdomen, detects even the slightest irregularity in breathing
Snuza Hero detects even the slightest movement and will alert you if your baby’s movements are very weak or fall to less than 8 movements per minute.
If no movement at all is detected for a period of 15 seconds, Hero will vibrate gently. Often this vibration is enough to rouse the baby, and Hero will revert to monitoring mode.
After three vibration/rouse incidents, the Rouse Warning will alert you to the fact that your baby’s movements have stopped for 15 seconds on three occasions.
If no further movement is detected for another 5 seconds, an alarm will sound to alert you.
-Small – fits onto baby’s diaper
-Portable
-Easy-to-use
-Vibration stimulation after 15 seconds
-Rouse Warning
-Audible alarm after 20 seconds
-Movement-rate Indicator to warn about weak or infrequent movement
Snuza safely and conveniently monitors your baby’s every movement.
Clip the Snuza onto the waistband of your baby’s diaper and switch on.
The flexible sensor detects your baby’s tummy movement.
A built-in vibrating stimulator on the Hero model gently rouses baby 15 seconds after movement stops.
If there is still no movement after 20 seconds, an alarm will sound to alert you to take immediate action.
Snuza can be used in conjunction with a baby sound or video monitor so that it can be heard in another room.
Snuza monitors are particularly useful for co-sleeping twins and multiples, where an under-mattress monitor is not effective.
Snuza is the only type of movement monitor that can be used if baby is sleeping in your bed.

Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Can you put a Snuza monitor on a cloth diaper?

A:

I dont see why not. It just needs something to attach to.

Q:Snuza: Can the snuza be used under a swaddle?

A:

Yes, we clipped ours to her diaper and then swaddled her. It worked fine.

Q:Will the alarm still work if the baby is in an automatic swing? Will the motion of the swing fool it into thinking the baby’s breathing?

A:

I was told the swing would “fool” it and if you set it in the swing alone it will still blink as if it were on the baby. I have had it go off, however, while my daughter was in the swing. I think it had come loose, but the alarm definitely sounded and the swing was still in motion. I still used it everytime my daughter was in the swing.

Q:What voltage does this require? Or is it battery operated? My wife is having twins and we plan to put them side by side. Will it work independently?

A:

A 3Volt Battery. It Attaches To The Diaper So You Would Need 2. It Comes With A battery. I Have Used One On My Son For All Naps And Bedtimes For The Last 7 Months And I Still Havent Had To ReplacetThe Battery. Look Up Snooza Battery On,Amazon They Aren’t Expensive.

Q:Does this work for a stomach sleeping baby?

A:

Yes, you just put it on the back of the diaper a little off to the side. I still use it on my 8 month old who sleeps mostly on his tummy.

Q:diaper changes and/or night feedings? Will it alarm? How does this work during diaper changes and/or night feedings?

A:

For diaper changes, instead of turning it off I would clip it to my own shirt etc., that way I didn’t forget to turn it back on when putting it back onto Baby, but it didn’t alarm because it detected my own movement.

Q:Does anyone have experience with this product specifically when they brought their premature child home from the hospital? (27 weeker for us)

A:

I love this product, it gives me peace of mind at night! Our baby was premature as well but not as premature as yours… Make sure when you clip on the Snuza that you fold over the diaper before clipping it on otherwise you will have false alarms!

Q:Can this monitor be used once the baby starts moving around in bed and rolling over to belly?

A:

Absolutely. In fact my daughter would sleep on my wife’s chest sometimes at night & if it came lose off her diaper while between them it would go off so it knew something was wrong. I’ve read parents with cosleeping twins used it just fine too.

Q:Does other sound in the room cause a false alarm? Because of close rooms and other house noise, we anticipate having a sound machine in the baby’s room. I was just curious if this would interfere.

A:

As far as I know the snuza only alarms if there is an absence of movement. The sound machine should not interfere unless you of course you can’t hear the alarm.

Q:Does this work in the car? I’m interested in getting this for a very long cross-country trip with my baby in the back seat.

A:

I don’t believe it would. I’m sorry. Because it senses the baby’s tummy movements I feel it would sense the vehicles movements of it is bumpy. Then again if you have a smooth riding vehicle I think it might work

Q:How well does this work for wiggly active babies?

A:

It can be tricky. If baby flips from back to front, all bets are off. You’ll have a hard time keeping it connected. But if baby just moves a good bit side to side, you might have better luck.

Q:Does it send alerts to your phone?

A:

No it doesnt sync to your phone

Q:Does vibration fool the monitor into thinking the baby is breathing?

A:

Yes

Q:How do you replace the battery? Does it take a special battery that has to be special ordered on amazon?

A:

It does have a special battery but u can get them at battery’s plus but we have yet to have to replace it. Lasts a long long time

Q:Is this the actual model shown in the picture, or is it the Levana that has this same white and purple coloring?

A:

When we ordered this on Feb it was the Hero in the picture. Purple and White.

Q:How loud is the alarm? Can you hear it from another bedroom or across the house? This product is only one piece, correct?

A:

The alarm is very loud. I could hear it no problem across a 1200sq foot first floor. But use a baby monitor if you are concerned about hearing it. It is just one piece with an attached clip. The battery and battery cover are removable.

Q:Can I use a fan with the Snuza?

A:

I don’t see why not. I used a fan in my baby girls room and had no problems.

Q:I don’t like the idea of electronics in baby’s diaper, will it work if I wedge it in baby’s matress? Thanks.

A:

No it will not. It has to be clipped onto the diaper. Though this item is thoroughly tested and uses a medical battery.

Q:This looks like a battery, is this the replacement battery for the snuza?

A:

Yes. The battery in the snuza looks like a tiny battery.

Q:Have been using Snuza with no problems until just recently, it all of a sudden starts to turn itself on when I am not using it. You know how to fix?

A:

we never had that problem. i would try removing the battery and putting it back in.

Q:My snuza flashes green a few times then flashes yellow? Why does it do that? I’ve turned it off and on but it’s flashed like that for weeks now. Help

A:

It’s just measuring the intervals between breathing movements.

Q:Has anybody experienced diaper blow-outs with the Snuza? What if pee from the diaper gets on the Snuza, any chance of electrical shock?

A:

I have not had that but zero chance of electrical shock.

Q:This says after 3 sessions of vibration rouses it will alert- does this mean 3 in a row or any 3 over a large amount of time (days).

A:

In a row and it will wake you up!

Q:Is this color purple or blue?

A:

Mine is blue…but it goes with the logo; I don’t think it’s meant to be gender-specific

Q:Will this monitor still be accurate if the baby is in a crib attached to the parents’ bed (like an arm’s reach co-sleeper)?

A:

Yes! The good thing about the Snuza is that it works anywhere.

Q:batteries

A:

Didn’t last more than a week and half then started flashing red light.

Q:Does anyone have problems with the batteries? I have the right ones but they go dead so fast?

A:

I thought mine were going dead and bought 2 extras to have but turns out it just wasn’t in all the way! I have not changed the battery once and have had it for about 3 months. For some reason it hasn’t happened again so I would make sure it is pushed in all the way.

Q:Does it pick up the motion of a swing if the baby is sleeping in a swing?

A:

No it does not nor in a bouncer.

Q:Can units be set to operate on separate frequencies so that two babies can be monitored.

A:

The unit operates totally independently. The sound comes from the unit and doesn’t transmit to any kind of base. Each baby needs their own unit and they won’t interact with each other at all.

Q:do u need a separate baby monitor to hear baby cry?

A:

Yes
