The SnüzPod 4 has arrived in the USA at last, bringing with it the latest bedside bassinet standards to ensure optimum safety and security for your little one as they rest by your side.

But when it comes to ensuring your little one's safety, especially around sleep, there's no such thing as too much research.

We've brought together all the key features that make the SnüzPod4 bassinet such a great choice for new parents looking to keep their baby safe and make parenting just a little bit easier!

Safety First With the SnüzPod4 Bedside Crib

The SnüzPod4 is JPMA-certified and meets bedside crib safety standards. This standard ensures easy access to your baby during the night while also providing a barrier that prevents them from rolling out of the bassinet.

New parents can rest easy knowing that their little ones can snooze safely by their bedside, being certified and tested for having the wall down overnight without having to zip it back up.

How to Practice Safe Sleep With Snüz

Practising safe sleep with the SnüzPod4 is straightforward, thanks to its carefully designed features that align with safe sleep best practices.

1. Always ensure that the firm, flat mattress is well-fitted and dressed with a fitted sheet to eliminate any gaps or bunching where your baby could get stuck. (The SnüzPod4 comes with a specially designed mattress for a perfect fit, and we sell Snüz bedding that fits the mattress perfectly).

2. Make sure your bedside bassinet is positioned correctly alongside your bed. The edge of your baby’s bassinet should be in line with the top of your mattress when the side is down. This means your baby’s mattress will be lower than your bed, so they can’t roll into your bed. The SnüzPod4 allows the bassinet's height to be adjusted so it's level with your bed.

3. To keep your baby safe through the night, always position them on their back when they sleep. Avoid leaving any loose bedding, pillows, or stuffed animals in the crib with them.

4. We recommend keeping the side of your SnüzPod4 up when you’re not in the room with your little one to keep them as safe as possible.

Promote Comfortable Sleep With Our Reflux Tilt

Note: this feature is not intended for use while your baby is sleeping, as a flat sleep surface is recommended to adhere to safety guidelines.

How Long is it Safe for Baby to Stay in a SnüzPod?

A baby can sleep in the SnüzPod4 until they reach 6 months of age or earlier if they begin to roll over or pull themselves up to a sitting position. Always follow the most recent guidance and consult with a healthcare professional if unsure.

What's the Difference Between SnüzPod3 and SnüzPod4?

The SnüzPod4 builds upon the features of our original bedside crib with enhanced safety and comfort aspects. It offers improved ventilation thanks to the ComfortAir breathable system and is JMPA-certified. Additionally, the reflux tilt feature is a new addition to aid in a baby's digestion and comfort.

Is it Safe to Sleep With SnüzPod Side Down?

Absolutely, the SnüzPod4 is designed for safe co-sleeping when in bedside mode. It adheres to the stringent safety standards set out in the European safety standards, which include testing for use with the side folded down, ensuring a safe environment for your little one's restful sleep.

What Makes a Bassinet Safe for Overnight Sleeping?

If you want your little one to sleep in their bedside bassinet, you need to make sure the sides of the bassinet are at least 300mm above the top of the mattress. This will keep your little one safe and secure while they snooze next to you. Making sure your bassinet has breathable mesh walls also makes it safer.

Are Bedside Bassinets Safe?

Bedside bassinets are safe when they adhere to safety standards, such as being JPMA-certified. They provide secure and close sleep environments for infants, ensuring their safety through design features such as adequate side heights, breathable mesh walls, and the absence of hazardous substances.
