Parental sleep deprivation is a given when bringing up a baby, so this brand new cot aims to help with this!

Pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp, MIT engineers, and designer Yves Behar joined forces to create the safest sleeper yet — Snoo. The crib’s high tech features include sounds that mimic the womb, as well as a swaddle blanket that will prevent babies from rolling into dangerous positions in their sleep.

When the baby begins crying, one of Snoo’s three built-in microphones will play a specific level of white noise that’s designed to match the pitch of of the baby’s wails. It will also begin rocking to soothe the child back to sleep.

The cot also notifies the parents of the level of distress (and of course, a nappy change isn't something this can help with!)

Is this something you would try out?
