Happiest Baby's Snoo Smart Sleeper

We know, we know. You brought your beautiful baby home from the hospital, only to find that they don't have the same healthy respect for a full night's sleep than you do. In fact, they don't seem to sleep at all -- at least, not more than twenty minutes at a time.

You want what most new parents want -- to take care of your new little one, develop that close bond, and maybe get a little sleep (and snacks, lots of snacks). We know the struggle, which is why we partnered with Happiest Baby to give away a SNOO smart bassinet to one of our readers!

The expert and pediatrician behind the "Happiest Baby on the Block," Dr. Harvey Karp, has designed a new innovation to help you get just that. Many parents are familiar with Dr. Karp and his 5 Ss (swaddle, side, shush, swing and suck). Well, he's bringing a sixth "s" to the mix. The SNOO smart bassinet has read the book, too, and if your baby is fussing, it will provide movement and soothing noises to help put baby back to sleep.

Being designed by a pediatrician, this bassinet isn't just handy, it's safe too. It features breathable mesh sides and a built-in sleep sack to prevent baby from rolling over. Additionally, it's just the right size to put in your bedroom, keeping in line with the AAP recommendations to room-share with your infant while still keeping them on a separate, safe surface. Of course, genius comes at a price, but more sleep for everyone is probably worth the initial investment.

Convinced? Ready for an extra pair of hands and a better night's sleep? Here's your chance to win a SNOO smart bassinet (worth $1,160)! Enter below!

    Is the BabyBjörn portable travel crib worth it?

    100% unequivocally yes.

    I have this weird brown birthmark on the bottom of my right foot near my pinkie toe and my mother always said, "That means you'll never stay still. You'll travel everywhere." (She's full of interesting superstitions like that.) I'm not sure if it was a self-fulfilling prophecy or what but I've always had a love for travel, and before we had a child (in those glorious pre-pandemic times), my husband and I traveled all over Europe, did two road trips across different parts of the United States and even flew all the way around the world to visit my family in the Philippines.

    I had this weird idea that I had to get all my traveling in before I became a mom. Because once you become a mom, you just become content sitting at home with the kids, right?

    Eh, wrong.

    I live in the Northeast and when I woke up this morning, my house was freezing. It had been in the mid 40's overnight and we haven't turned the heat on yet. Suddenly, my normal duvet felt too thin. The socks on my bare feet too non-existent. Winter is coming, and I'd been drinking rosés still pretending it was summer.

    I couldn't put it off any longer. It was time to do my annual tradition of winterizing my home—and I don't mean making sure my pipes and walls have enough insulation (though obviously that's important too). I mean the act of evaluating every room and wondering if it has enough hygge to it.

    If you've never heard of hygge, it's a Danish word that means a quality of coziness or contentment. And what better time to make sure you have moments of hygge all throughout your house than right now? As far as I'm concerned it's the only way to get through these dark winter months (even more so during a pandemic.)

    So I went room by room (yes, even my 4-year-old's room) and swapped in, layered or added in these 13 products to get us ready for winter:

    Mama, all I see is you

    A love letter from your baby.


    I can't see past you right now, I'm so small and everything's a little blurry.

    All I see is you.

    When you feel alone, like the walls are closing in, remember I'm here too. I know your world has changed and the days feel a little lonely. But they aren't lonely for me.

    You are my everything.

    When you feel like you don't know what you're doing, you're making it look easy to me. Even though we're still getting to know each other, you know me better than anyone.

    I trust you.
