SNOO often calms fussing within 40-60 seconds. So, if fussing stops quickly as SNOO increases the motion/sound, your baby just needed a little more soothing and is not very hungry.
However, if the fussing is continuing for more than a minute, it usually means your baby needs some help…a feeding, a nappy change, a hug, etc.
You do not need to wait for the bed to “time out” and stop itself. Trust your instincts!

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.
