If SNOO rocks my baby all the time, how will he learn to self-soothe?

In the womb babies have soothing rocking and sound 24/7. No wonder so many infants have trouble sleeping in flat, still, silent, unmoving beds!

SNOO’s familiar womb-like sensations aid babies’ sleep from one sleep cycle to the next…often without fully waking. But if they do wake and fuss, SNOO waits about 8 seconds before increasing to the next level. This little delay gives babies an opportunity to practise falling asleep on their own.

And, by responding quickly to cries, SNOO may also help build a baby’s sense of trust (what doctors call 'attachment'). This, in turn, builds confidence to fall asleep independently.
