Parents are always looking for products that will make the early days with a newborn a bit easier. That’s the case with the Snoo, the $US1,500 ($AU2,042) high-end bassinet created by Dr. Harvey Karp and beloved by sleep-deprived parents.

The Snoo Smart Sleeper uses a combination of motorized movement, swaddling, and sound to respond to a baby’s late-night fussing so that parents don’t have to. 

Some celebrity parents love the Snoo so much, they are investing in the company in the hopes of getting the high-tech sleeper into more nurseries.

Read on to learn more about celebrity parents who use the Snoo.

Like the Timberlakes, Kunis and Kutcher bought a Snoo to secure a good night’s sleep when their second child was born — something Kutcher revealed on fellow celebrity father Dax Shepard’s podcast, “Armchair Expert“. 

“For kid no. 2 we got one of those Snoo’s,” Kutcher told Shepard. “Have you heard of this thing? It’s an oscillating bed…It’s got a natural swaddle and it’s got a sensor in it, so the louder the kid cries, the faster it goes. And it puts the kid back to sleep! It’s unbelievable! Trust me on this.”

Actress Kate Hudson was older and wiser when she welcomed her third child, daughter Rani Rose, with Danny Fujikawa in 2018.

The Snoo wasn’t around when Hudson’s older sons were born, but her daughter’s birth was perfectly timed to enjoy the innovative bassinet, which could be seen in the background of the family’s home videos.

Hudson recorded Fujikawa setting up the Snoo, posting the images to her Instagram stories, and remarking on how the Snoo is “the future” of parenting.

The “Fixer Upper” stars and Magnolia founders didn’t have a Snoo for their older five kids, but after experiencing the sleep-filled nights it provided when they welcomed their youngest son Crew, the couple wanted other parents to feel as rested as they had. 

The pair gave away Crew’s Snoo when he grew out of it, gifting it to an Instagram follower who had finally become a parent after 12 years of trying.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana is another investor and Snoo user.

As parents of twins, she and her husband Marco understand how precious sleep becomes when you welcome multiples. Saldana loved the Snoo so much, she put her money where her pillow is, investing in Karp’s company.

One of the most famous twin mothers in the world uses the Snoo.

According to Dr. Harvey Karp, Bey and Jay purchased several Snoos. In an interview with Who Australia, Karp shared that the couple received two Snoos as gifts when they welcomed twins Rumi and Sir and then purchased six more.

“Then they ended up buying six more for their different houses because they have houses all over the place,” Karp told Who Australia.
