Make the Most of Dad's Skills
December brought exciting news for sleep-deprived new parents in the UK: the revolutionary smart sleeper, the Snoo, has finally launched this side of the Atlantic. The sleek-looking cot imitates the sounds and movements the baby felt in utero, to help transition a newborn to life outside of the womb. Babies are safely strapped in to a built-in swaddle, meaning they can't turn over in their sleep, making it one of the safest ways to put your little one to sleep in their first few months. You can read our review of the Snoo here, but to celebrate its arrival on UK shores, POPSUGAR also sat down with the man behind it to find out more about how his methods (and his Snoo) can help first-time parents. Dr. Harvey Karp is on the faculty of the USC School of Medicine and is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He's also the bestselling author of the much-loved book The Happiest Baby on the Block. Ahead, he shares five key things he thinks all new parents should know.
