Most babies sleep great on SNOO's normal baseline level (blue), but many may sleep better with a bit more motion + sound…all night long. That is why Change Baseline is a parent favourite feature!
For example, a baby’s sleep may be disturbed by a little cold, growth spurt, teething, etc. In those cases, increasing the baseline to Level 1 (purple) or Level 2 (green) all night for a few weeks can often get the baby back into a better sleep pattern. The blue level may be too gentle and slow...to distract an infant from the sensation of a stuffy nose or mild hunger.
Frequently, babies go through a major sleep regression at 3-4 months of age. It is a time when infants become much more social—nosey!—and interested in the world. They may wake up and cry out every few hours just to play or to have a little company. Increasing the baseline for a few weeks can often aid babies back to sleep. To change this feature, follow the instructions below:
- Head over to the Setting icon at the bottom of your screen
- Under the Preferences category, click on Starting Level Motion
- Check whichever level you would like SNOO to begin on!
Breastmilk is the best source of nutrition for babies. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, mothers eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast- and bottle-feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of a mother's breastmilk and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. If you do decide to use infant formula, you should follow instructions carefully.
