How is the Snuza Pico different to a traditional baby monitor?
The Snuza Pico is a portable baby monitor that attaches snuggly onto your baby's nappy. It connects through low energy bluetooth to your smart device, to monitor your baby's breathing movement rate, sleep patterns, temperature and sleeping position.
How does the Snuza Pico Portable Baby Monitor work?
The Snuza Pico safely and conveniently monitors your baby's abdominal movement while sleeping to provide an early intervention opportunity in the event of no movement detected.
The monitor detects even the slightest abdominal movement and will alert you if your baby’s movement stops for a continuous period of 20 seconds.
The Snuza Pico will first vibrate gently after 15 seconds in an attempt to rouse the baby. If the vibration doesn't help rouse the baby and no movement detected after a further 5 seconds then the unit will alarm.
If the vibration succeeds in rousing the baby and movement is detected after such an event the Snuza Pico will continue to monitor movement.
After three vibration/rouse events, the rouse warning will alert you to the fact that your baby’s abdominal movements have stopped for 15 seconds on three occasions. Monitoring will continue when the rouse warning is active but will require the caregiver to attend to the baby to investigate.
The rouse warning alarm can be reset by briefly turning the device off and then back on. The repeat rouse warning feature can be disabled using the smart phone application. Each 15 second rouse warning will always be notified on the smart phone application. The Snuza Pico will also measure the position your baby is in and your baby's skin temperature.

The advanced technology in the Snuza Pico baby monitor combined with more than 5 years’ experience and market feedback brings you a device that offers peace of mind and supports you when you need it the most.
